End of Mid-term (again)

16 01 2009


Today the midterms officially ended, not that I cared much since I finished mine last Wednesday.

But for some I know, specially those who are in the verge of graduating this coming sem, they find this there second (or third) final time to take their mid-terms.

Honestly, ever since I entered College, I never really took any exams (midterm, quizzes, finals) seriously, OK so maybe I did once or twice but that was because it was a major subject and it was my pride and joy to pass it.

But other than those, I never really found myself to study for any of those test and still I manage to pass them all, even if some of my peers who took the same exam as mine, and clearly showed signs of stress that they studied for it failed. I call it luck I or I also call it going with the flow of things. I figured if I over stress myself by studying for a mid-term or any exam then I’ll definitely look like that guy in the image above. Stress and I don’t go well together and stress is one word in the dictionary that I try my best to avoid.

Stress leads to anxiety and anxiety leads to depression, I don’t have a remedy for depression because I never get depressed. If I do get depressed then you’ll find me in a slump or brooding in my room, no way! God knows how I look like when I brood and loss my sanity! Trust me when I’m down, I’m down, down as in down there at the depths of Hell!

I swear to myself that how negative things life throw at me that I’ll accept it, because I made a self pact that I would never-ever be depressed.

Hell week as they so calls it (from other schools as well) comes only 4 or 6 times per academic year for semestral based colleges, or double/triple for trimestral colleges. It’s the dreaded mid-term and final week. Again dreaded for them not for me!

So here I am spending my free time at my favorite out campus solo hang-out place at Robinsons Mall, Boni. Waiting for my laptop’s battery to die out on me before going home. I was suppose to go to a beads shop today and other plans with Righ but I decided to postpone it till the 23rd so that we can also watch Underworld: Rise of the Lycans when it comes out in the cinema, that is one movie I wasn’t expecting and I just found out about it when I saw the huge tarpauline hanging in the Shangri-la malls while I was sardined in the MRT on my way home from school. Believe me it was only by chance that I managed to see it amidst all the people pushing and groping inside the MRT car.

So basically there we have it, I have managed to survive this years first mid-term and now I plan to take it easy till finals since it’s all about submitting requirements from here on out, and since I have submitted of it already, I guess I’m almost thru this sem 🙂

I hope my classmates did the same and I wish to see them all again this coming sem.

Good policy not to get stressed out and not to get depressed. Always be happy, ika nga… even amidst the pushing and groping in the MRT. 🙂
