I called the Registrar yesterday to ask for any updates regarding the documents I have requested earlier this month and I was surprised that all of them were ready for claiming! I was really happy because it meant that I would not have to wait until the 29th. It took the person fixing my documents several minutes to finish because she had to affix a lot of dry seal to each of them and I have requested two copies of everything. I was really happy to see both my undergraduate and graduate degrees reflected in my updated Transcript of Records. =D I also got a copy of Course Description and I don’t even know why I requested for one. It was funny how some of the subjects listed had an elaborate description, while the others only have a short sentence with it. Unfortunately, I returned my Certificate of Graduation because it had a glaring problem — the date was January 11, 2011. I have to return this Monday just to get the corrected copy.
Having arrived at almost 11:00 AM, we only had more than an hour to run from one place to another. I still hoped that the Cashier had not transferred from the Shopping Center to ISSI because it was really a pain going to that area. LOL I also got my book, which I should have claimed last week (but I have my ID pictures printed somewhere else because none of the stalls there print a size 1.5″x2″ photo).
Faye also managed after several years to fix whatever she needed to fix in our old college! It was admittedly a productive day for both of us, even if it meant we had to wake up earlier than the usual. We ate lunch in Mashitta — the first time for Faye and the first time in 18 months for Ikle. We then walked to the Acad Oval, near the Sunken Garden and “relaxed” a bit and fathom on how a lot of things have changed since the last time we were undergraduate students in the university. How old. LOL
And of course, Ikle and I couldn’t help but take his crazy pictures with the trees/shrubs inside the university. I could not think of another person who was as willing and in-your-face in front of a camera.
I’m sleepy, very sleepy but I feel more inspired and motivated to work hard on the things I must do for the weeks ahead. Now that I have all of the needed requirements, I take it as a giant “GO!” sign that there’s no turning back now. I’m ready to jump. =)
