A day before the end of the first semester and the start of the semestral break last year.
Me and my high school friends and classmates were bummed that we didn’t exactly get our most desired academic results. (We didn’t even know are grades, then. We were just expecting for the worst.) A few of us were preparing to take the Zoology Final Exam because, unfortunately, they were not able to get an exemption. (I was not one of them.) A few hours before the exam, and it was just a few minutes after our last Math class, we vowed to make it into the Dean’s List or College Scholars, and even better, University Scholars or the Chancellor’s List. But then our plans didn’t go along.
Here we are, in different parts of the Philippines, continuing our studies in other campuses. I hope we still get good results despite the struggles in the first part of our second semester due to the recent tragic events.
