When 2013 Smiled Back at Me
...the year I will never forget
Struggles, Triumphs and Dreams.
Well, this year is a bit memorable for me since it gives me a package of life-changing experiences. Last March, I conquered college... and kissed it goodbye! I march the aisle with flying colors, a Cum Laude graduate and Academic Excellence Awardee! Indeed, my parents remembered all their hard work for me, now its' Paid-Off. After that, I enrolled myself in a comprehensive review center, to further increase my learning and to prepare myself in the one of the greatest battles of my life, the National Licensure/Board Exam. June 15 & 16, 2013, I did write my destiny, it's a life changing moment, "battle of the brains" they said, as I pursue the licensure exam days. Three days after the examinations, results are out. Thank God! I passed the boards! Besides, there's one more bonus, I am a Board Topnotcher, ranked in sixth place. That moment, my life was changed. Numerous job offers, had some inspirational talks, became a leader and a good example. And now I'm looking forward for more, some new adventure in my life, try to experience some extraordinary moments, dream big, sky is the limit! God really blessed me that year, and I owe everything to Him. Lastly, let me leave you my words of encouragement, desire to be different, aim excellence, be on top but keep your feet on the ground. Let me quote some beautiful lines from the poignant movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, "To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life."
