I got in UP (University of the Philippines)!! It's one of the most prestigious schools here in the Philippines and I passed the entrance exam!! I am literally so excited and happy and ahhhh! I have been praying for this moment to come. I have been begging, wishing at 11:11, praying everyday to get into this school and because God is awesome, He makes it happen. :) I didn't get into Diliman, though, which was my goal but I am still pretty contented having landed a slot in UP Cebu.
I also got into UST (University of Santo Tomas)!! It is also one of the most prestigious schools here in the Philippines since it was where Dr. Jose Rizal, our national hero, went to school to. It would be such a great honor to go UST because I am the first Esmena to actually study there. Like my sister, who was the first Esmena who studied in UP. I feel really blessed right now. I still have to go to an interview, though, because that's the process.
Now, passing these two schools, I have to choose. My family is planning to go back to Manila after I graduate (around 2 months to go!!) I have to choose between UST, which is in Manila; or UP, which is here in Cebu. If I were to choose, I would go to Manila, honestly. Everything is there and you get to do so many things you can't here in Cebu. It's such a place full of adventures and I love those.
As of now, I don't have a decision yet. But I really want to study in UP because it has been my dream since I was mature enough to actually be thinking about college. Idk, I hope I make the right decision. And I hope the Lord guides me through it. :) xx
