Ora et Labora

Today is the day after the international celebration of the Labor Day.
Anyway, my post is supposedly about yesterday and the damn internet connection was very low. There was a typhoon then. It was raining cats and dogs even now it is still wet. tsk.tsk.. I still have a birthday party to attend to.. Hmp! :(

Well, i wanna share the events that had occur for the past three days, that would be April 29,30 and May 1.

April 29 & 30---- Since I am taking summer classes, examination is a big issue and the crisis of the life of a student --MIDTERM EXAM made us shiver once more. Some of us are ready to exert the tedious effort of studying 'til dawn, while some of us just choose to study a bit and depend on luck. Studying is really one of the things that student tends to dislike, even I myself would admit it..hehehe.. Plus the misery of the sophisticated teachers and the way or the styles of their teaching doubled up the bitterness... ugh! However, this has been part and parcel of student life. The good news and partially a bad news is, I got 89/100 item of the Accounting 6a Exam. It's way better than to have a bad score. But I'm not satisfied 'coz I almost ace it if I'm more careful in writing my answers. I'm so clumsy and reckless, and careless!!! arrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

May 1----- I thought this day would be a holiday or rest day for all of us. But here in my school, we have an Accounting Quiz Bowl.. sounds great? not!!!!!! Gosh! It gave me a headache since I'm the Program Committee Chairman, i should make a program for that activity to make it more exciting and fun.. Luck shines upon me, the said activity was a thumbs-up! It went well and filled with fun! Some teachers came over too! There was a vocal solo ,as an intermission number in the quiz bowl. There should be two contestants for each year level representing the two competing teams the BALANCE SHEET and the INCOME STATEMENT. As can be expected, each accountancy student ellicited that spirit of competition. I'm so glad that my team crowns as the overall winner of this activity.. yea! ^-^
The said activity only consumed the whole morning and after that we went home for lunch and somehow took a nap. Though it was a short activity, for my part, it has been a fun-filled day with our own "esprit de corps"

Goethe once said, " It is not doing the thing we like to do, but liking the thing we have to do, that makes life blessed!
Indeed, such 3-days experience was not that grand but worth of lessons. It's also a leap of faith; with all that constant praying and asking for God's favor and wisdom makes things right that i wanted it to be. Yes, "ora et labora"!-- Pray and work is all we got to do for a successful life. Do everything what we could muster and lift it up all to Him for His glory and in His matchless name. Amen.
