Thank You, UP

Uhhmm, hello? Hi Everyone I'm back! I'm still alive and kickin' and as you can see, thesis made me really busy, thus the hiatus. Well, it's all worth it! All the things I did and experienced for the whole month of April was all worth it. AHHHH!!! Actually, I've been constructing this blog post in my mind for the past few weeks, but naah, wag na.  Need I say more? I'm lazy to type now so let the photos do the talking, sorry.
The agony before this very proud smile. The printing, the knocking on your adviser's door, the waiting, the disappointments, the feeling of not graduating this April, the tears (literally), the signature and approval of your Adviser, the running from printing shop to CEM, the signature of your Department Chairman, the revisions, the printing again, the waiting and waiting and waiting, the signature of your Dean, the printing again (4 copies) and finally the hardbound and the CD! Ahhhh. Felt surreal but this is it, I'm done with the thesis :)
But actually, I'm not yet  really done because my Adviser gave me a "4" on my major subject so I'm not yet cleared and had to take removals exam but of course, he gave me a passing grade after. That moment, I just realized that yes, I will truly graduate. I kept smiling in the Jeepney while on my way to Santa Rosa. HAHA Baliw lang.
The day of my graduation, my whole family's here. Mom came home from Canada. It was supposed to be a surprise but it's really obvious so, the surprise failed! HAHAHA :D

With Dad, Mom and the Naked Man :)
Mom and Uncle Romy, mom's oldest brother.
My support system :)
HAHA funny how candid this photo is and look, there's Vi's head sticking out.
With Ace, my schoolmate since Grade 1, blocmate, co-advisee and Dre.
With Shar, my blocmate and co-worker! HAHAHA
With my bets, Vi :)
With Joela, my thesis buddy!!! :)

Find me!
And guess what, it rained! Right after our entrance. HUHU :(
The Commencement Exercise was fast and ended with a rally and fireworks!
(Maybe I'll edit this blog post next time, I'm really lazy and sleepy to think of a cheesy and tear-jerker speech.)

It's a wrap. Thank you, UP!
