First and foremost, I am back here in PMA. For the people who knew me they can very much vouch what PMA means to me. I spent the last three years of my life trying to go back here and fufill what I want to be and as a good friend would put it PMA is like embeeded in my soul, whatever that meant. To be really honest, going back to PMA is the single most wonderful blessing that I have received for this year, not just because this is something that I really want but because in this place I find something wonderful. I feel that something great is in store for me here, maybe not right now, not in the near future but I believe from the bottom of my heart that this is where I start to become what God intended me to be and that I believe is greatness. I'm not writing about this to announce to the whole world that I will be great someday, who knows I might not wake up tomorrow, but my point is that it is such a wonderful feeling when you are very very sure that the road you are taking is the right one. The previous year was not easy considering the so many adjustments I had to do to fit in this world. I really hope people won't be shocked how much weight and FATS I lost plus of course the so many struggles that I have to pass through just to be here and remain here. While people think that it would be so much easy for me to simply adjust considering that I have done this before, it is never easy when you wanted to stand up for something. I believe that the three years of fighting to go back here did that. I could have remained how I used to be and just be completely passive but now, I could feel a deep sense of purpose of doing something that not so many tried to do in the previous years and so far I believe that I have done well although I know I could do better. And so this is how life has brought me and as far as I am concerned I know God will be very pleased.
On a lighter note, I just might make it to Dean's List, my confidence is getting better by the day. The thing is I just have to reach a grade of 7.5 in my Trigonometry subject. I took the final exam (my only Final exam, by the way, since I was exempted in my all other subjects) 0.09 shy of that target grade and confident of my answers in that final exam, I just might make it. This morning, my dad called me up through military line and he was very pleased when I announced that I was in the dean's list (see I'm really becoming so confident) even if there are no final results yet. I'm just happy because I really did aspire for that medallion on my uniform come thirdclass year (FYI: you are allowed to wear a Dean's list medallion in your uniform when you make it to dean's list).
Anyway in conclusion this are the summary of things that happened this school year:
- I lost a squadmate to Algebra, I hope he takes the exam again and comes back
- I was able to write my seemingly "bold" opinions in the Corps Magazine
- I was finally able to prove that I can make it to Dean's List
- I realized so many things about my life and about other people
And so this is how the cookie crumbles....
