Awesome comeback!

Hey guys, I’m still here. Haha! Well I just want to thank each and every one of those people who commented on my last post and gave me tips on how to overcome my shyness in class. I’m slowly working on it and now I can say that I am kinda more active in class now. I’m realizing that it’s not really about being smart (although I still beat myself up sometimes for getting the wrong answers, but not so much now), it’s about the right attitude towards learning. I’m also glad that I’m not alone in those kinds of problems, at least I know I’m not abnormal or something 🙂

Anyway, a lot of things happened to me during the weeks I wasn’t able to blog, but one of the best things happened to my dad, not to me. My dad is already a one-star general! Yay! He went home last Thursday for his oath taking and when my mom told me that he would be coming home, I did not know that he would have his oath taking immediately! It was too soon but it was so exciting! We were really happy upon learning about this because the whole family has been waiting for this for so long. My dad was one of the few people in his batch who still haven’t gotten their promotion and in my opinion, it’s long overdue. Oh well, better late than never! It was a very special event and the whole family was complete even for just one day (my brother’s a doctor so we don’t really see each other a lot; he’s always in the hospital). Well, he’s leaving tomorrow morning and although we’re going to miss him, we’re excited for all the new things he’s going to experience. Of course he’ll still be in ARMM but you know, he still feels very close to us because he constantly communicates with us. I’m so lucky to have a dad like him.

And does he feel lucky to have me? I hope so, because I gave him a gift so that he’ll be happy before he leaves…

Because really, that’s the least I could do for him and my mom for all the things they have done for me. 🙂

  1. Wow Claudine! Congrats on being DL! I’m sure your parents are so proud of you! Congrats to your dad also! 🙂

  2. Wow, congratulations to you and your dad! Being far from a family member and still being supportive is something great. Don’t worry about the wrong answers, at least you’re trying. Having wrong answers in recitations is better than not reciting at all despite knowing what the answers are.

  3. I got no choice but to go on a trip with an injuried knee. It got worse during the trip though. 🙁

    Wow. Congrats on making into the Deans’ List! Keep it up the good work! 😀

  4. Nah, it’s not about intelligence. It never was. Like they say, make mistakes in answering questions and that’s how one will learn. It’s nice to hear that you’re overcoming your shyness in class and that you’re getting more active – even though it’s not a major change, it still is a change that you’re more active. I find it admirable for someone who’s shy to have determination in wanting to participate more because I’m nothing like that. I’m shy and I hide in class sometimes; I don’t participate and I purposely hide behind the shadows. And maybe, I’ve always like it that way haha.
    Anyway, congrats to your dad! And wow honor list! Congrats to you too 🙂 3.4 is a good GPA too! again, congrats!

  5. wow so humble of you.. you first introduce the recognition of your father before your recognition… I hope people are like you.. stay humble and keep your feet always on the ground… I mean that seriously.. lol. 🙂

  6. I’m glad that you’re now overcoming your shyness.. That’s really a huge step..
