Waiting for the examination result

Last Monday was the final examination for the DOST (Department of Science and Technology) scholarship that my niece is taking. She passed the first examination. The result of the final examination will come out in two weeks. We are praying that the niece pass because to be one of the DOST scholars has lots of privileged. Whatever the outcome is, we are still proud of her. We are not expecting anything at all because she did not study even if we always told her to study a little. We are panicking and she is not. How is that?LOL

Just like her aunt (my older sister), she believes in herself that she can answer the questioner well. Studying would make her stressed. She wants to enjoy than torturing herself. Very difficult attitude I must say. But on the case of my older sister, it is effective. I really do hope that luck is on my niece’s side. I asked her when she got home after the examination of how was it, she just answer me, “is it very difficult” but she is doing her best. Hopefully we will get positive result after two weeks. Good luck to my niece and we hope she will get the DOST scholarship!

Qualify to take the scholarship examination

Next year, the nieces will step another level of her study. She will be in the high school level, new school, new environment, new people, new classmates and new friends to meet. Though she has already decided of what school she will like to enroll next year, my sister wants her to try another school and take scholarship examination. We want her to try her luck in private school where offers full scholarship. First, she doesn’t like the idea for she has already decided of what school she will be going to next year. However, she changes her mind because some of her classmates and friends are trying their luck too.

The nieces have filled up the application/registration form and have submitted the requirements to the certain private school that she likes. We are hoping that she qualifies to take the scholarship examination. Yesterday, the niece told us that she qualifies to take the scholarship examination. It was indeed good news to the family. We do hope that she will pass the examination which will be on the 4th of October, 2014. The school she picked is the school that the sister wants her to try. Hopefully she will passed the examination and be one of the full scholar student. Good luck to my niece and God bless always!

Missing my college diploma

The diploma is the best ever reward after years of studying in college and finishing a course. It is the proof of my effort, time, hardships, and struggle to finish the course and get a good job. It was one of the happiest days of my life when I finally got my college diploma. I showed it to my father and I can see in his face that he is happy. His sacrifices to send me to school and finished college have been paid off when I graduated. I get can a better job with my diploma and the course I finished.

Speaking of my college diploma, I missed my diploma so much. I haven’t seen it for three years now. I sent to my sister’s friend to frame it. He was the one who did frame the sister’s college diploma. It has been three years not but my diploma hasn’t delivered yet. I am so worried if my diploma is still there or not. We have tried to contact him and sent message through his phone, but we haven’t receive any response. We want to go to their house, but we are not sure is they are still there since they only rented the house they live in. I hope that he will contact soon and safely deliver my diploma.

Gets perfect score in their weekly tests

The three years old nephew is doing great in his class. He was enrolled in pre-school near our village. His parents especially his mother is having difficulties in teaching him because he is a bit stubborn. He doesn’t want to be force to write and study his lesson. He even doesn’t want to hold his pencil longer. He prefers to play in the tablet. That is why his mother installed an educational game in the tablet, the games where he learns the alphabet, writing letters and numbers too. In does help a lot, however, the problem is that he is too lazy to do it on paper using pencil.

Anyhow, even if the nephew is a bit lazy and stubborn when it comes to writing, we know that he will do well at school because he learns fast and his memory is good. Yesterday was there weekly test. We reviewed their lessons very well so he can answer the questionnaire. I am really happy because the nephews got a perfect score. He is one of the students, who dismissed early because he got perfect score. I am so proud of our little lazy and stubborn pre-schooler. This is a good sign. Long way to go nephew, keep up the good work!

So proud of his girls

Last March 25-26, 2014 was the recognition day at school where the girls (my nieces Ronna and Ella) are studying.  Their parents took two days off to be witness the recognition day, also to pin the ribbons and medals for their girls.  Ella, finishes with honors, medal as girl scout of the year, and two ribbons.  While Ronna got medal as girl scout of the year and three ribbons.  Unfortunately, Ronna did not able to be part of the honor students, but she did well.  She belongs to the first section just like Ella.  Her grades are high, but not enough to be part of the honor students.

We are expecting that Ronna will finish with honors, but it was Ella who did made it.  Still we are proud of the girls because they did well at school.  I can say that their father (my brother) is really proud of his girls.  He is a hands on father.  His waking up early preparing foods for the kids was worth it because the girls give something to make them happy.  I am so proud of the girls too because being part of the first section is not easy.  Challenges are there because they belong to fast learner class.  Congratulations for passing another level.
