Sorry to bombard you with lots of posts. I don't know why I feel the need to post a lot of things on my blog. Maybe, it's something I need to do to keep me sane. I still have a lot of things to do with school. I have pending assignments in three subjects and we have a deadline set in two days. My goodness, haha! But it's okay, I can manage it... I can do it!
One of the few remaining factors why I want to finish school is of course, my mom and my boyfriend. Apart from the fact that I need to finish College to land a decent job, I think these are the main reasons why I want to finish my degree. Well, my boyfriend wants me to retain my single name (well, bear my father's last name) when I graduate. He then promised my mom that the only time that we can then marry is after my graduation. So there... And my mom is actually holding on to that promise. I am currently a third year College student, but with sooo many subjects left behind during my first two years of academic life. Well, I guess I just got too lazy to accomplish things. But this time, I would like to take things seriously. I am not getting any younger.
Let me explain how the Open University system works (well, at least with my school)
The thing is, if you enroll in PUP Open University, there are only two degrees offered - Entrepreneuship and Broadcast Communication. I am taking up Broadcast Communication. What happens is that you get to have pretty much (I think) the same amount of subjects a normal student has (full load). Per semester, we get to have 10 subjects. Here comes the good part... The 10 subjects will be separated into two blocks. Meaning, you get to attend the first 5 subjects during the first block and the remaining 5 will be taken at the remaining half of the semester. You only go to school twice a month (Saturdays) and most of the work is done by yourself. Same goes with major subjects. You do all the research and reading. On the third and fourth session you get to take your midterms and finals. Easy? Well, it depends on the subject actually. But it's attainable.
The school aims to help people who wants to continue their degree. This actually caters to working students that's why they made the system like that. I have no issues whatsoever with the system, I am actually enjoying my stay and I have friends. It's like attending a normal school. Haha! The best part? I only pay around Php 4,000 - 5,000 per semester. It's very affordable. :)
So I guess I am actually enjoying my stay. I wish to graduate in time. I want to graduate already... Oh my!
