Orientation Day

>> Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I thought classes would start yesterday but when I arrived at the room assigned to us, the lights were off and students like me were also waiting outside only to find out that we have no class again as the faculty of the college of law held a meeting.  After waiting for an hour and a half, I went home with a new friend I met there. 

This afternoon, I saw one of the faculty members who happen to be one of the lawyers who regularly appear in our courtroom.  He told me that there would be an orientation this afternoon and I have to attend.  During the orientation, we were introduced to the faculty of the college of law.  Some of them I am familiar with because from time to time they are appearing in our court.  We were informed about the dress code and how we should behave as law students.  We were informed about the dress code.  We were told that being admitted to the college of law is not a right but rather a privilege.  It being a privilege, we ought to take advantage of it and explore every avenue of learning to advance ourselves.  We were further told that we should adapt a virtue of humility being law students.  What I can’t forget was the line of one of the lawyers who gave the closing remarks.  Law students are expected to become lawyer and not just law graduate.  And that if we study law for the sake of promotion we are in the wrong place.  Very well said.  I liked it. 


I'm Officially Enrolled

>> Friday, June 11, 2010

Finally after days of waiting, this morning I got hold of the list of my schedule of classes.  Officially, I am enrolled as a freshman in the College of Law of Notre Dame University.  That makes me a working student.  It makes me feel like I am living a double life hehehe.  I work during the day and I study at night.  I have class from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday.  On Saturday I have two classes in the morning and one in the afternoon.  I feel a little sad coz I cannot visit my parents anymore on weekends except of course if there would still be long weekends like what we have now.  We already have a new president now I doubt if he advocates holiday economics.
Classes will start on Tuesday (since Monday is holiday) but I don’t know where Room 214 is.  Well, that would be my classroom for the whole semester.  Next thing to think of are books.  I have apprehensions about my going back to school.  It was ten years ago since I graduated and everything feels like new to me again.  Well, I have to undergo another period of adjustment.  I just hope that I can do it so as not to disappoint my boss.
Whether I like it or not, sleepless nights and piles of books here I am being a student again after ten years.  I hope I have the super power to endure this.


Another Bad Day in my Life

>> Monday, June 7, 2010

I woke up early today to prepare for work, but before going to the office, I went to Notre Dame University.  The personnel from the registrar’s office told me last Thursday to come back today to get my class schedule.  Around eight o’clock in the morning, I went to the registrar’s office excitedly because I already want to see my schedule.  But to my great disappointment and dismay, I was greeted with the bad news that the schedule is not yet prepared and that I have to go back on other days.  I want to frown in front of her.  Why in the hell, did she let me come back when the schedule is not yet ready?  She told me that it is alright as the classes will start next week.  Can you imagine that answer?  How could they make today as the enrollment day when the schedule is not yet ready?  She could have told me last Thursday that it will not be ready until Friday of next week.  I hate being lied upon.  I wish she is professional enough to tell me the truth so I would not expect at all.  I was very much tempted to lash her with my acerbic tongue but I was able to hold my temper in check.  She wasted my time for going there when I can get nothing.   Well, she told me again that it will be available this Friday.  I just hope this time she is telling the truth and not only making me feel better because I really hate it.

Okay, I was a  appeased but not totally, if this Friday I can’t get my class schedule, I swear I will not leave that office without my class schedule.  If they won’t give it to me, then let’s just see what will happen.


Late Posting

I was supposed to post this entry on Friday, but due to a minor accident that I encountered, it remained a scribble on a piece of paper.  But since I find time to visit my blog tonight, here it is.

Beginning of classes is only seven days away.  I can already see endless pages of books that I am going to read and sleepless nights that I have to endure when the classes start on June 14, 2010.  Law school here I come.  Official enrollment will be on June 7, 2010 but last Wednesday, I started processing my documents and complying with the requirements for enrollment.  I am grateful that I am already halfway through my enrollment.  I had taken off 50% from my burden of this whole enrollment process.  When I went to the registrar's office, the personnel assigned for the college of law told me to go back on Monday as it is the official day of enrollment so that I could get my class schedule.

This enrollment is not a joke.  It took me half day yesterday to continue processing my enrollment.  My feet hurt from walking to and fro.  I was wearing a sandal with three inches heels so naturally my feet complained.  To console myself, I thought of it as having an exercise that I needed.  Sadly, I was not able to fulfill my New Year's resolution of getting healthy.  I was not able to take exercising seriously, so I think this is the right way to burn calories.  Well, I really have to think of it this way or I will be crabby and frowning the whole afternoon.

Wish me luck guys with this new adventure that I am going to take.
