Random Post from the Mountain!

When you're in the middle of the mountain (yes, please do take it literally),  you'll be fascinated by all of the wonders the nature has to offer - you'll be engrossed with so many beautiful feelings; you'll suddenly fall in love with life's greatness with just a snap and; you'll just terribly miss the people who continue to make a significant impact in your life! HAHAHA Sorry friends, I'm just talking about myself being in the mountain for an audit engagement while  experiencing all these beautiful emotions. 

So much for the fanatical intro, I think. Mahaha!  I just want to say one thing. 

I miss my batchmates so much!!!  Naaaaah There. :)

In a Relationship with BS Accountancy - Surviving First Year

After n months, I have finally made up my mind to write a simple post about my 4-year relationship with BS Accountancy! I had a hard time writing about this before because (1) I have so many stories and bloopers and kilig moments and laslas experiences about my course, that I didn't know how to put all of them in an organized manner; (2) I am super shy to share my LQs with Accountancy since he really is the jealous type of a partner and; (3) Never mind my reason number 2!!! Go back to number 1 and let's just all deal with it, pretty please?! Hahaha! 

So I've come up with an idea to share my crazy  yet meaningful experiences in an installment basis. I just hope that I can profusely inject a touch of seriousness about this matter because I have the tendency to be overwhelmed about the details! My little wish about this post is for me to INSPIRE at least one Accountancy student who'll happen to drop by here in my space. (JUST ONE, Lord and I can finally say that I have touched somebody else's life through this lol writing of mine!)

First things first 
If you think that the course Bachelor of Science in Accountancy isn't your first choice, you are not alone. If you think that the course is not for you and there's a little voice deep within saying that you should be shifting to a course that you dearly love ASAP, you are not alone. If you think that your efforts are not being paid off by the grades that you get, you are not alone. (Just to clear things, I really wanted to take up Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I was once that poor little girl who tried her best to love Accountancy by all means).

So first things first. Like any other relationships, you must DECIDE whether you'd like to commit or not. It's either you'll shift and follow the course which, you, think, will make you happy or you'll learn to embrace Accountancy with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  and patiently claim for the sweet moment that it'll love you back.

Learning to commit
Truth be told, I almost quit during the first half of my first semester in Accountancy. Just so you know, I had a hard time grasping the gist of Accounting -  debits and credits were all new to me, plus I had that eeny miny moe negativity that I couldn't make it. Ugh, bummer.

Then I had that defining moment which pushed me to study, no, to actually make an effort for Accountancy to love me back in a breeze! HAHAHA Insert side story here! Kay naa ko duha ka classmate before sa Accounting 1 & 2 nga dako ilang letter grade sa midterm actually best friends kaayo nako sila up until now hashtag Jessa hashtag Razel tapos nagstart ko ug wonder how it would feel like kung dako pud akoang grade tapos murag ma imba ka slight sa Accounting mahaha. So I tried too. There. And the rest was history. HAHAHA Sorry Bisaya lang kay feel kaayo nako! 

After almost three months of my internal monologue of "He loves me, he loves me not", (referring to Accountancy), I changed my lines to "I love you I love you I love you Accountancy!". HAHAHA I told you, I get too overwhelmed with the details so bear with me.

Getting through the basics

I knew in my heart that I couldn't survive the course if I'll just keep on saying 'I love you' to Accountancy without actually exerting the effort to learn the concepts in depth. What is love without actions, right?! I started reading my Accounting books in depth while understanding the assumptions, theories and the like. I tried to answer the exercises found in my books, researched some good materials about my major subject and established a good study habit. Yes, I am not shy to share that I passed the course because I studied well, except for my tinapulan slash gikapoy na kayo ko moments during my senior year sorry na but I was able to overcome it though, Praise God. 

Finding your inspiration 
My point is plain and simple, while fighting for the toughest battle that you're in (say our super loving Accounting) find something/someone which/who will inspire you and shape you to the best Accountancy student that you can be!

In my case, I drew strength from my family, friends and my all-time Protector up above - through their loving arms and big time support, I found my sanctuary. And and and, through their constant prayers, I survived my first year relationship with BS - Accountancy!

P.S. See you in my posts for my second, third and fourth year relationship with him, yes? I promise to be more serious in my following posts. Let's talk about everything. Good night! :)
