College of Law — At Last!

For those who had followed my journey from college years, graduation, passing the Philippine nurse licensure exam, until when I finally get to practice as a nurse, they would be witnesses on how much I’d do anything just to pursue law studies.

I had always been honest that I didn’t like taking-up B.S. Nursing, and that my study of the course — given the hurdles of maintaining a good standing and scholar status — had been painstaking four years ago. Even so, I managed to finish the course due to the will of my parents and my desire not to fail them. During such time, I had not been able to do the things I liked because I’m scared to be kicked out from my university — Yes, my alma mater eliminates students who cannot “keep up” because we really don’t pay much, so they’re kind of strict with the grades.  I guess I had done some ranting about this in the very first post I wrote for this blog site.

Luckily through the years, I came to love the discipline my parents [gravely] pushed me into entering. Now, I work as a National Program Officer for Male Involvement for Safe Motherhood, through NSV (no-scalpel vasectomy), in one of United Nation Populations Fund’s implementing partners in the Philppines — the Cooperative Movement for Encouraging NSV (CMEN). I owe to nursing all the pleasant things I experience now, aside from the fact that the CMEN had opened wonderful opportunities for me as a person. Don’t worry, I’ll catch up as I’d write a blog on that in the succeeding days…

Even with the newly found happiness brought upon by nursing, still, there’s a big part of me calling to pursue my dream of becoming a lawyer. This “calling” had been postponed a number of times, which even came to a point of becoming neglected…

Finally, after four painstaking and trying years, I made it! I feel so mighty proud…

Even passing the Law Aptitude Examination to become qualified in the College of Law was never easy at all. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this “triumph” because I had no time reviewing for the entrance test due to my hectic schedule at work back then. That’s why after getting that you-qualify-to-the-college-of-law call, I couldn’t help but shout for joy!

Later, I will be enrolling to pay for my tuition fee. It’s actually the first step of reaching my lawyer-dream…

And also the very first to others I have yet to take…
