Always Something To Be Thankful For

Thursday, May 31, 2012
Just this morning, I woke up to a text message from a friend. It's a congratulatory message for being in the list of top students in our batch. I knew I had spoiled that surprise a few weeks back when a friend told me the inside news. Yet, I still got excited and opened our Facebook page right away. And there it was, my name on the list.

In my two years in medical school, I have proven myself I could always do be better in my studies. I was a little dilly-dallier back in my undergraduate days but I never did regret it. As I always tell Kel, it was a part of my life that I never will want to redo. In my life now as a med student, however, I had a different perspective. Maybe it was because I had never been in-love this way with medicine than I had with Educ or Human Eco. Or maybe because I can never risk my scholarship for indolence. 

Yes! To tell honestly, the only reason people find me GC (grade conscious) is due to the fact that I had to secure myself the partial scholarship that the PLM College of Medicine grants me. I had been blessed to have been supported financially for two years now. Instead of the almost 60k I used to pay in my Freshman year, I pay only half of it now (and on an installment basis, lol). It truly had helped my family a lot in providing for my other school needs.

So tomorrow, my mom and youngest brother will come with me to the College's Recognition Day. The happier thought is that it was my second time to get invited. I was also on the Dean's list last year! Teehee! I do hope I'd still be able to manage my Junior year the way I did with the previous ones.
