Career Mode in Psych
I know I always love science. When I was in second year, I so love Bio. Chemistry was fine and Physics was hell. Although I know that my grades were better than others. And whoa! My former teacher asked my sis "Bakit hindi siya nag-
Physics? (If you're wondering what answer I have in my mind right now: "Haller?!?") But still, sciences never bored me.
And here comes Psychology- General Psychology to be precise. It was, according to me when we started it, the most difficult subject that we have. But hollah! I'm soaring high this past two terms. Although my tests are not significantly high, my Midterm test was. I got 49/ 50, 98% or 29/30 as raw score. My first test for the finals was 11/ 15, but when we had our second test, I got a perfect score. My prof gave me plus 5 for that which, if the plus was solely for quizzes, will make my first test 16. And I'm so ecstatic about it! My prof even said, "Oh, mangutang kayo (for those who failed it) ng score kay Sheena" Isn't that so flattering?
I am exerting extra effort in Psychology. And I guess, that is the main reason why I'm garnering a recognition I am really not expecting. I do advances in my book, I recite often and I jot and scribble as if I am a "notes fanatic." I have three major reason why I am motivated to do it. 1) I want to excel in every subject that I have 2) Psychology is such an interesting subject that when you read something, it makes you crave for more. Its like a literary work, but it is science. 3) I am a Josephian and whatever recognitions I have is always because of the foundation they gave me. The standard and discipline they instilled on their students is incomparable. (But of course, it always and will always depend on how you get and live through it.)
I'm doing greatly fine in History and Ecology, although I'm not contented with a 3.25. (Don't get me wrong, in a system like ours, 4.00 is very possible. Unlike in St. Joseph, 100 is a question mark.) In REED, I'm a dramatic super falling star from 3.75 to 2.50. Hahaha. But it was my fault but I don't get why. In Filipino, darn, I never liked it, but I want the Talmpati thingy. In Lit, geesh, our pre- Midterm and Midterm test was a whoa but I know I banked well from tests and chips. In the last two, including Pschy, I haven't got my Midterm grade yet, but I'm happy with what I have.
Now, I am still determined- motivated, I guess well explained by Instinct Approach to Motivation, to do well in class. And it is innate in me, in you, to to strive for excellence.
I have doubts at first if I can make it or not. I was exposed in my previous environment to be striving but not grade satisfying. I thought it was only those inborn genius who can make it far, but I was wrong. With proper determination, and of course, action, no one can go wrong.
At this moment, its to early for me to coin success. But I started it well. Right?
|Ma. Veronica Sheena Valencia de Gonzales y Tan de Prieto. That is the FULLEST of my name, no less. Unless I'd
be indolent to write, then that will be Sheena Valencia, and that's how my name goes in school, everywhere!...Sinking in historically, I was born by the date of July 28 and I'm 16. It
was Makati Medical Center who witnessed the 1st sign of my breathing. Now I'm here in flesh at Las Piñas to continue the journey of my life. It's not perfect...but it's great!
I love writing. Although I must admit that I'm not that splendid. I love blogging, chatting, reading- and I don't mean textbooks-
speaking- or if you mean orating, well fine!- and sleeping! (Well, actually all of these and more are written down there , so I need not elaborate.) Aesthetically, I'm pretty fine as well as emotionally. Now, sinking in personally. I'm erratic and
aggressive but patient. I'm a comic and I love to laugh but I have exceptions. I'm driven by moods of others but I always try not to be. I want justice incessantly but I must admit that sometimes I'm biased. I'm naughty but I know how to follow. If I seem to be dark and sinister...don't be anxious...there are tons (and majority) of my being is angelic.
Currently, I'm a senior- and my height doesn't say so!- highschool student of St. Joseph's Academy and I'm enjoying it! Soooo much! It's superb! There are fuss and flaws but really, it's Supercalifragilistic Expialidocious! BUT on the looming AY to come, I will be
in college! Burden is- I don't want to leave SJA so soon! Can I (and we) just repeat? *scowls
(Inserted: Aug. 12, 06)But...that current up there is archaic because at this point, I'm already in college at De La Salle University- Dasmariñas. Meaning, the dream of repeating will just be a dream and will never come true because I'm already here. And I must enjoy what I have because there will be no turning back since I have decided to say everytime I fall, "Standout Josephian!" What a smile it brings me...
