Struggling, Fighting, Conquering

April 2002 - took a full summer load to catch up with backlogs. Pass all subjects despite allowance cut-offs and other non-academic issues

April 2004 - participated in the ubiquitous suffering of Catholic devotees during the Holy Week by using a Pentium 2 - 64 Mb memory PC to finish coding the Learning Resource Center Online Tutorials Reservation System for completion of summer practicum. Did it with impunity

April 2006 - attended and march for UP Manila Graduation for sake of formality. Conquer pride to show up amidst humbling battle scars in the course. Three days later, my father's health faltered leading to his departure. Fighting guilt, loss and agony to rise up for the family.

April 2008 - wrapping up deadline for UPCM-related projects, has attended and conducted tons of seminars and conferences here and overseas yet found no long lasting satisfaction until I get hold of the beast from the swamp ...

Let hell extends its arm of misery. This kid will stare it directly from its eyes and overcome it with torrid impunity.
