Last Saturday morning I received a text message from my former director and professor Sir Lito Casaje. He said that he picked me as his Model Student and he needs some papers that they can exhibit – my certificates, research papers, and exams.
Since we moved to Laguna four months ago I had a hard time remembering where I kept my files.
Sunday morning I went to school, by the way, I studied Mass Communication major in Broadcasting at the La Consolacion College Manila and I graduated 2009.
Four years after graduation I never thought that I will receive such message and though I did not graduated with flying colors (My GPA was 1.43 but I have 2.75 final grade in Humanities which didn’t allow me to) I am glad to know that the school at least my professor considered me as one.
I gave a little speech to the juniors about career and Sir Lito said he’ll invite me for a career talk which I am really excited about.
I will give you a glimpse of my college life.
Since my high school have advance subjects I excel in most subjects during exams.
I joined dance club because I really want to dance.
I always volunteer to be the commentator during mass. (Until now I raise my hand if there’s a hosting opportunity LOL)
I was hand picked to be the lead actress of a school play – The Glass Menagerie
I received many flattering compliments when I played a hopeless romantic crippled lady and kissed my gentleman caller.
- This gave me a chance to star in another school play – The House Bernarda Alba a very challenging Spanish inspired stage play where I got involved in my elder sister’s fiancé and took suicide at the end of the story. We also performed in Instituto Cervantes.
- After the theater hang over I concentrated into writing and desktop publishing as I am the Art Director of our school paper – Consolatrix. I was then awarded as the most outstanding student for that.
- When my college life is coming to an end, I was also awarded as the most outstanding student for my theater participation and they wished to see me in Oscars. Darn! Will it come true?
- And then thesis and graduation. *teary eyed*
And above is the talented Director who believed in me – Director Carlito Casaje. Funny that we ate at the same McDonald’s yesterday.
Everything was nostalgic yesterday and I am happy about our conversation, he said I am one his exceptional student and actress. We are planning to have an alumni/reunion play.
I am still with my first job now and I am maintaining two blog sites as a hobby.
I wish for success in my career in the future.
I still have a lot of rice to eat and trials to surpass.
I know I will get there.
Thank you for your trust Sir Lito and for my Alma Mater. I hope the exhibit will be successful.
Happy Monday everyone!
