Final Term

It’s that time again for Finals, but this time…it is really Final. 

I’was truly a stressful month for us graduating students. We tried to managed our time to finish homework, study for exams and quizzes, do reports and especially, meet the deadlines for our major projects.

Sobrang nakakastress kumilos ng kumilos para sa mga projects, kaya ang laki ng pasasalamat ko sa mga tumulong at kumilos para sa mga final projects namin. Diba? Ang galing nila? 

Disclaimer: My friends and I didn’t involve too much on our project works mainly because, we are handling the League of United Psychology Students (Psychology Organization), and we don’t want to put an additional work and stress for us. Hehe!

This was our project from Training and Development. We had an actual simulation of what is happening during the training of HR Practitioners.

There were two groups for our Nihongo class, one group will wear the Yokata (as seen above) and the other group will wear a cosplay costume, which I don’t have any pictures. Sorry!

We had a magazine project from one of our major subject (Current Issues and Trends for Psychology). We were assigned to do a personality magazine. Sorry, I do not have a picture of our actual magazine.

We also did an HIV and AIDS Awareness seminar on our Physiological Psychology. This seminar was open to all students since we want everyone to be aware with HIV and AIDS.

Handling this kind of event was so stressing and frustrating, especially the paper works. Haha! But overall, we had so much fun doing this kind of activities. Thank you to all the people who organized these events.

PAPJA 2017

This January 20-21, our school attended an event for all Psychology majors (minors) a.k.a PAPJA. It was our second time to attend this kind of event, and we somehow enjoyed our overall stay.

— of course I enjoyed PAPJA because of my so called “family” or the “sleepy heads” —

Part of the event was picking and attending a workshop on the second day. My friend and I attended a workshop about playback theatre, and it was an outstanding experience. Ms Joan Valbuena, our speaker, made us all do certain activities that was embarrassing at first, pero habang tumatagal okay na siyang gawin.

can you see me? beside me is our speaker

— She was so confident about her knowledge; she knows what she was talking; she’s so passionate about her work (playback theatre). I like her, obvious ba? Haha!

There’s nothing much on this post. But I enjoyed the event. Too bad it’s our last time. Oh well, thank you!

“How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it? Why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager – I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? Two whom shall I make my complaint?” (Kierkegaard’s literary character Young Man in Repetition, 1843)

“Now it is no longer a matter of deciding what to do, but of deciding how to decide.” (May, Love and Will, 1969)

“As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the trye goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relations with this best and truest friend of mankind, that his image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling! And I thank my God for graciously granting me the oppurtunity…of learning that death is the key which u locks the door to our tru happiness.” By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“We have become addicted to having rather than being and confusing our needs with our wants” he told Reuters…

And soon I learned that working on these concepts brings me back to where life is. It is beautiful like a flower blooming and stunning like the sun setting from afar.

Every course has their own struggles. They face and do complicated and somewhat boring tasks just to finish a major project – like research.

For a Psychology major like me, this would probably the hardest part of doing research. What is it? A journal article. According to Michael Engle (2015), “Journal Article are written by scholars or professionals who are experts in their fields. In the sciences and social sciences, they often publish research results.”  We read, understand and revised them for our research’s sake. Our research paper needs valid, reliable and tested researches to support our study from skeptical panelists.

Doing all those things wasn’t easy, yet the knowledge we gain, the information we gathered and discovered, were astounding. We uncover new concepts in our minds through books, journal articles, reliable websites, researches  and application of have been studied. And I thank Psychology for the competence and insights I have today.

Psychology Says…

Mind readers, fortune tellers, weirdos – these are just some of the common misconception people think of students and professionals studying the world of the human mind. Psychology can sometimes be confusing but mind-blowing since you get unexpected results from different tests and experiments.

Psychology. Psychology is a SYSTEMATIC STUDY of HUMAN BEHAVIOR and MENTAL PROCESSES. People taking up Psychology NEITHER read minds (or thoughts) nor they tell the future, they observe and analyze the behavior you are portraying.

Psychology (and my professors) is indeed a great stepping stone to my existence. I discovered so much from it, starting from the reasons why people behave and think so differently from each other, to the strategies of applying every theories to our life. And I’m still not done yet on my academics! Ha!

Since I am on my 3rd year of college, a lot of things changed. Major subjects and projects came into our door, along with the stress and pressure my classmates and I have been facing. Hahaha! Nevertheless, we still managed to coped with them and accomplish every single project.

Busy semester

One thing’s for sure: STUDYING IS NOT EASY.

It’s been 2-3 months since school starts and I am telling to do your homeworks, reviewing or studying (whatever you call it) and gathering some informations for your projects early, because procrastinating is not a good choice and gives no benefit for students (even adults).

It is midterm week and I am still not in the condition to study for our exams. Maybe because of the vlogs And series I enjoy watching.  But, I know my priorities and it is to study hard and hope for high grades.

I hope you know your priorities too!
