I could say that I have a quiet day. I got home early because we took our division office examination while my other classmates were still at their retreat. I wasn't allowed to go due to some financial reasons. I'm glad that they returned safely at school. My classmates arrived while we were taking the Mathematics exam. I got a bunch of big hugs. haha. :) I'm very happy to see my friends once again. My high school days is about to end and my stay at Marikina Science High School is quite numbered. I could say that I had the best four years of my life. I'm very happy and contented yet a part of me is aching for I am about to leave the institution that honed me to be the best that I could be. I know that I have to move on and face the new chapter of my life which is College.
Marisci has a special place in my heart. In this school, God opened my eyes for the opportunities that my former school can not offer. Here, I realized that I am not the only one who is smart and there will always be someone who is better than I. I also realized that being brilliant is not about being the cream of the crop. It is all about offering your endeavors to God, acknowledging that without Jesus you cannot succeed,accepting your frailties as a human being and lastly, it is all about respecting and honoring your parents and teachers as your God-given mentors.
Surely, my stay in Marisci is not always filled with laughs and happiness. In my four years of stay in this institution, I encountered a lot of school works, many sleepless nights of reviewing, and a great number of examinations. Being in a specialized school which runs through a science curriculum, I have a lot of subjects. During my freshman year, I have 10 subjects then I have 12,15,and 10 subjects in my sophomore,junior and senior year respectively. With my subject loads, I literally spent my whole day at school. My classes starts at 7 in the morning and it ends at 3:40 pm or as late as 5:40pm. From the moment the sun rises until it sets, I am at school. ahe. :)
For me, high school is my training and battle ground. Here, I encountered a lot of temptations,hurtful words that sometimes degrade my dignity as a person, betrayal of your "so called" friends,a couple of persecution because of my beliefs, a lot of frustrations and worries, and failures that will sometimes made me fall. I was in my sophomore year in high school when I doubted my salvation and I tried to run away from God. Thank you Abba for your patience and for not letting me to go. Although I have some unpleasant memories , I do have a lot of good memories as well! I am able to build good relationships with my teachers, I found my true friends, I am able to share the gospel to my classmates and friends, and I am able to develop my skills and talents. I become a writer due to campus journalism and I become interested in digital arts because of my multimedia class. I also met people who helped me to strengthen my faith in God and helped me to stand on what I believe in.
High school is a very remarkable phase in my life. I saw how God moved in my life and how God meet me during the times that I really want to give up and run away. My mentors taught me a lot of life lessons that I will bring as I welcome the brand new chapter of my life. Thank you so much Lord for letting me experience this season of my life.
