UM’s 69th Commencement Exercise

Hoooray for all of us! Though I was done with all those “Thank You series” as my full-time response with the greetings and congratulations, I must also not forget to share to you my final moments as a student in the University of Mindanao – my one and only Alma Mater.

Though the days before the Baccalaureate and Graduation Days were already exhausting us, but we couldn’t let that exhaustion ruin our day. Mind to know why it’s exhausting? I’m gonna say this for one last time! We were a bit short for our 500-hour internship for circumstances that I no longer want to cite. Geez. To make things short, we were somehow obliged to follow the mandated 100-hour of service instead of 2-3 days of doing community exposure, which was unfortunately the agreement even before our OJT started. Those hundred hours would also mean rendering duties on weekends to make sure we would no longer have to think about “duty” after the graduation (which was happened exactly to my co-interns).

Anyway, my point was we had to let things go and move forward. Hahah. Below are the pictures I really wanted to share before going too emotional again. Heheh Peace! 😛
