amazing experiences

these are the stories I would like to share :)

I used a book to help me become who I am today.

Hi there random reader,

This is a review and reaction of a book called “10 Keys to College Success” with the author, Ms. Leung-Yao. I bought the book on year 2014, but I came to know the book way back 2012 as a student in my previous school in Bohol, and was introduced by our professor in one of our minor subjects. Then I have been following the tips ever since. Now, this a special article because, the book actually has influenced me become a productive and effective student attaining college success!

SPECIAL ARTICLE: Collehiyala’s College Days (briefly discussed.)

On October 2013, I transferred to a local university in my hometown. I became a first year student again because I shifted from another course and school. It was difficult to adapt at first; because of the new people, to seek out new friends, and get-to-know the school policies. A year later, I bought the book as was mentioned above. It intrigued me because I wanted to start over again. I want to be independent, responsible, and I wanted to be acknowledged.

The book helped me in a way that:

A. I started to be positive about my future. I was very preoccupied at that time because I have issues back then, but the book reaffirmed me that I can make a difference, that I can change my bad habits and try to become the person I wanted to be. 

B. I started to use my school’s resources. It says in the book “How many times do you borrow book and read a book?”. Back in my high school days, I don’t go to our school’s library. I didn’t even have the slightest of interest to read a book. I was very contented with what the teachers are teaching. Week after week, I wanted to increase my comprehension. I wanted to learn more and understand better. It was fun, spending my vacant times in the library. I was also able to finish my assignments and projects as I worked on them in the library. Peace and quiet.

C. I started to do creative ways to enjoy my vacant times at home. I went from gardening to sweeping our house’s floors. I pretty much enjoyed cleaning the house. I also read the books that I borrowed from the library.

D. Outside home, I joined Fun Runs (by myself). I loved staying fit and taking a part in the local activities our local government offers. I met local politicians and police officers.

E. Few years then, I started to have the idea of going out of my comfort zone. I joined an organization in our department in Psychology. I was elected as Secretary. The responsibilities were heavy but I was able to survive. (Yay!) I mumbled a lot, because I became a treasurer at the same time the secretary!!, all that helped me gain friends! I also joined an organization called, Peer Facilitators’ SocietyWhere I was forced to but gained a skill in emceeing and facilitating activities which I didn’t had a thought of having. I loved what I was doing, and all the tasks given to me and the leaders acknowledging my efforts. A great third year! Boom year too, because I became the Outstanding Peer Facilitator of the Year 2016!! (AMAZING!) God is amazing!

In my fourth year, I was not able to use the book anymore, but my mindset is now totally different. I think independently, I became a leader and became a person to rely on. (The year was also challenging because of some personal issues) Well, I survived and all is well! It was rocky, bumpy, and full of holes but I succeeded. I was able to get a degree. Yahoo!

Prayer, friends and family also helped me in attaining my goals! I graduated from college last March 25, 2017 with a bachelor of arts degree in Psychology and smiled with a proud face!

My On-the-Job Training Completion,

Though! It’s not that fulfilling yet because I still have to finish my OJT compilation and other things to do. Such as: Notarization, reminding supervisors and other student-ish stuff needed to complete.  But, It was a blast! I will form the experience in to a one-liner sentence.

It was a very hands-on work with heavy pressure-expectation, mending bond with friends, brain and patience-cracking experience!! haha

Different kind of emoticons could express what I felt in my OJT Experience!

For starters, I enrolled for Psych 29 this summer 2016 for Psychology Internship. We are given 280 hours to complete within 2 months.

We have 3 settings which included: Industrial Setting, Clinical Setting, and School Setting with each 100 and 80 hours separately . So, I hurriedly prepared my resume, which was highly criticized by ma’am ——! anyways, I did my best to make it look presentable. With my friends, we took pictures of 2x2s for the resume and were all worked up of getting hired or not. Kinda stressful but, Challenge Accepted!!

The companies I’ve worked for are the following:

  1. For CLINICAL SETTING – NDRC/New Day Recovery Center in Lanang, Davao City

  2. For INDUSTRIAL SETTING – SOCOTECO II/South Cotabato Electric Cooperatives, Inc.

  3. For SCHOOL SETTING – NDDU Guidance and Testing Center

Long story short, I have to cut it down, It was..

The Best educational and stressful SUMMER I’ve ever had in my life! 😀

2nd RUNNER Up!

competence This is my VERY First TIME to join a Competition in Academics. Especially on my field of expertise. 

It’s Our University’s Intramurals 2015!

First day of the Intrams! 5 hours straight of ongoing competition. I’m getting tired by the second and hungry. I forced my partner to join. I really want her to face her fears, so I dragged her along.

I’ve been encouraged many times to join drawing contests in high school but, I never did. Now, finally I decided to join and represent my college.

my 1st youth boot camp training.

Yup. 

On our first day, I was really excited and  I was the early bird and the result  I forgot my slippers and my bible. Well, while waiting for the Police to come and take us, I was guilty for coming early. But that did not blew my high spirit In fact when they came not really on time but when they enter the gates, four Police service cars showed up and the officers where on their uniforms.. It was sooo cool!.

actually it look like this!

 So when they arrived, we, campers where in line like real soldiers and the officers started yelling at us and said “campers go to your assigned vehicles! 1, 2, 3!!”

When we arrived at our destination, we, the campers were yelled again and formed a line by teams. after that we were facing extreme heat because we were placed in the open daylight just standing. Waiting for further orders.

hehehe This is my part 1.

The things I’ve learned in this special training was that. Policemen of our country are the heroes and the protectors. That’s  why we should give them respect and acknowledgement. I was really happy because our trainers were really jolly and caring although they were really strict.

I really enjoyed the experience when we were climbing mountains, running, hiding, pass through dangerous places, walked through rice fields and surviving extreme heat with a little water.

amazing talaga.
