Once again it's that time of the year! Grades show up on the my.lasalle website, people refreshing their browsers every 5-10 seconds just to see if they passed and fail, and all hell breaks loose. Me, my grades are decent. Miraculously, I was able to get passing grades in INTFILO (Philosophy 101) and ADVANSE (Advanced Software Engineering), two subjects that I'm in danger of failing. Thank god I was able to pass them.
KASPIL2 (Later history of the Philippines) was like my high point this term, since I got a perfect 4.0. Whilst INTRNLP (Intro to Natural Language Processing) just gave me a 1.5. I dunno why though. maybe our prof was not amazed by the progress of our group in terms of what we have submitted and reported on the classes that we had. Or maybe that's because he just wanted to continue the streak of 1.0's that I had from the first class that I had him as his prof, until now. Lulz.
The only thing I kinda regret is part two of our thesis course (THSST-2). We got a failing mark. 0.0. Complete and epic fail. But meh. The reason why we failed is simple. Me and my thesismates are too lax. We focused on other stuff aside from the thesis, like work, anime, friends, gaming, other subjects and other stuff, but we never actually got the time to actually do it. And whenever we actually attempt to do it, we end up being too lazy and lax to even think about working on it, and we easily get distracted while we work. Now we're here, just facing the consequence of our actions. What can we do about it? It's our fault anyway. As a result, I'm delayed by a term and my friend mickey is delayed as well.
But meh. Crying over spilled milk won't get us anywhere. We'll just stand up to our feet, learn and embrace the lessons of the past, and move on. And this time, in this second attempt, we will try our best NOT to let lightning strike twice.
Oh well. We have to experience failure in some point in our lives. Just think of it as a challenge to work harder and strive for better things. After all, in Filipino, "may panahon para maging hari, may panahon para madapa, dahil ang buhay natin ay sadyang ganyan. Umaaraw, umuulan." (There is a time to be a king, there is a time to trip and fall down, because our lives are really like that; Sometimes it's sunny, sometimes it's rainy).
Oh well. Learn and move on, I suppose.
