Graduation jitters

Written by Raymond Santos Estrella on Sunday, 16 February 2003. Posted in 2003

Another eon has passed since I last posted anything here. Its either I’m way too lazy to write or I’m just too busy with schoolwork. Unfortunately, the latter holds true because no matter how lazy I am, I know that I’d still find time to write even a little bit.

First of all, the pressure is killing me. Maybe I don’t show it but I assure you its there and I am getting quite anxious about finals week and graduation. Despite my attempts to keep it at bay, the big traditional question keeps popping up: what the heck am I going to do after college? No, I do not have an answer.

Classwork, Hell Month begins, dreams, and birthday greetings

I’m just waiting around for my groupmates Ann, Jules, and Raffy to get here so we can start working on our company audit of William, Gothong, and Aboitiz, Inc. (WG&A). This mini project for our Policy Implementation class is probably going to be the best effort we’ve ever done in class and that’s saying a lot already. I don’t mean to be boastful or self-assured but we really have raised the par in the format of the reports in this class. Last semester, we started by introducing the element of fun into the discussions by having a game before the actual discussions of the company’s structure, problems, opportunities, strategies, the four matrices, a SWOT analysis, and the group’s own recommendation. Since this is the last time we’ll be reporting in class, we decided to up the ante even more by devising a scripted report, like a real news cast that would, in effect, make all our video footage look as if they were done live. If all goes well, this will really blow the socks of Mr. Sabug!

Eraserhead syndrome

I have a feeling that this is going to be another one of those weeks where I’m left all beat during the weekend because of so much to do and I’m left clueless as to decide which one to do first. This is going to be another 5 days of trying to survive on 3 to 4 hours of sleep per day. Haay... Can I just lay down and die yet?
