Who says that when it comes to education you need to follow the stereotyped- right age just to go to school? Am I right with my words here? Anyway, I’m 26 years old now; I’ll be turning 27 this coming February 5th but it never came to my mind that going back to school is difficult for me. Of course the adjustment had to be gradual because all my classmates are teenagers – freshly graduated from high school. And I have to live in another city which has lots of adversary. But what can I do the state university is cheap and it has good standards, so I have to deal with the issues professionally:P
Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute Technology is a well known university in the Philippines and if you happen to drop by in my blog you can search the standing of my school to Asia’s best universities. The number will not be the basis of how great the school is; and that’s for me to say ;P
I have been in this school for 2 semesters now. The first semester happens to be a success for me because I have fulfilled one of my dreams for the first time. The university allows us to go outside of our realm and discover what we truly want. Ooops let’s go back one line there – it’s not the university that gave me the opportunity to achieve my dreams. It just so happens that I studied there. 😛 it is I which made those choices.
Anyhow, I still have to admit that if not for this University I wouldn’t be able to do the things I wanted. If not for this University I wouldn’t have to realize how stupid am I before by not choosing this institution. If not for the University I wouldn’t met the people who opened my eyes to see the real situation outside the four corners of the classroom. If not for this University my life would still be the same. So, I would give my gratitude to this State University that I ignore once, which blesses me with opportunities that would change my life.
Despite the age, I am still happy being back at school, I love learning that’s why I’m back. I want to discover more of my self that’s why I stepped out in our town and explore other cities. I want to be me, that’s why I have to chose the place which accepts the real me. I want to become successful in my field that’s why I now choose this University.
