“Birthday Greetings”

Have you ever greeted your friend on his birthday? I mean personally or you just have received a notification then posted a greeting on his wall, message him a happy birthday.

For me, I  would like to greet a friend personally. Because greeting people on their birthday is somewhat requires sincerity and not just you had greeted that person a happy birthday on his special day. Facebook is one of social media sites that sends you a notification about birthdays of your friends in Facebook. I just noticed that sincerity fades away as you post your greetings on their wall or message them. Some people posts “HBD”, “Heypii Beerday” etc.. especially here in my hometown. I am not against with that kind of greetings though. But for me, I don’t apply it for myself. Because I would like to preserve the sincerity of greeting the person on his special day.

Yesterday, I have attended a Debut of one of my friends here in our town homes. It was a great night for me. Wearing a polo-shirt, black slacks and a shining shimmering black shoes. I look great that night (I suppose). So I’m the only bachelor on our table because the other bachelors can’t go with us due to occupied time. Although I am the only bachelor on our group. It was a fun night, with laughs and story telling, you know a typical group of friends. I was one of the 18th roses of the beautiful debutante that night. So we danced then talk about our friend who’s unable to attend the party. It was my second time to attend a grand debut. So that’s it.

I have greeted the debutante a happy 18th birthday, sincerely which I really prefer to all the people in the world. But of course cause of the fast paced innovation of technology. Change is constant, so some may prefer and its ok to greet their friends online. It depends but still for me, greeting the person personally is the best better yet if not, send them a cards via post office. 🙂



It’s been almost four years since I entered college. Taking up a business course major in finance! Wow. Just W-O-W. From a vocational course as a Graphic artist to a bachelors degree as a soon to be Chief financial officer. When I was on my middle school, I never thought of taking up business courses. I usually tell other people that I wanted to take up a course related to engineering especially Computer Science. Well, that was my dream-course. I always tell myself that “I am going to be an Engineer”…

I even took up College Entrance Test in a University at Manila to test my luck to be part of a university. It was a university, a home for engineering courses. Unfortunately, I didn’t pass the required points for computer science course but I was on the waiting list which I was given the chance to choose from the other courses offered.

Luckily, I passed on a College Entrance Test where all students are scholars of the city. So here I was currently enrolled taking up the said course. I get to enjoy most of the time without worrying about tuition fees because the College was sponsored by the city. We have no problem in terms of paying tuition fees every semester, so we are kind of lucky I suppose. But of course we need to provide ourselves our uniform and other miscellaneous expenses up to our graduation.

Now, I enjoy studying business course. Financial Management is a course where challenges you to be that kind of person who makes wise decisions. It’s part of our job. Not only be good in calculations but also on how you analyze things deriving a very concrete decisions considering all the factors that might took place. I felt like I was destined to take up this course. I dunno, I am happy whenever I read articles about business. It feeds my mind. It made me more knowledgeable in terms of being part of a business.

I really hope that someday I get to acquire a suitable job that is related to Finance. I really hope so. I am praying to God!


It happened last Tuesday. It was the day to defend our Term Paper. It was a successful defense to all the groups. Our group was quoted to have the best paper among the other groups. It was flattering. Being the leader of the group which has the best paper among all quite boosts my self-esteem towards my academics.. I also got the highest score among the class on our Final Exam. It was an achievement because it is a rare event of my life..

I have no intention to boast all of this things. I hope to inspire other people who undergoes the same thing, challenges and tasks in work or in school. While doing the Term Paper, we didn’t thought that it’s going to be the best among all the groups. Well, maybe at the back of my mind I sometime thought of to get the highest grade for the paper. But that’s not the main goal. Our main goal is to do the paper well and not to piss off our Professor. We wanted her to see the paper neat and knowledgeable. We just did our thing. Term Papers needed to be direct to the point. It doesn’t need to have a lot of gimmickry upon presenting it to class. It requires simplicity. The objective of doing a term paper is to compliment with the implication that your study has. That’s just it. It doesn’t require anything just simplicity.

I was quoted by my Professor to be “A Revelation”. Since I got the highest grade on our Final exam and having the best paper among the groups in our class. As I said, this was one of the rare events of my academic life. I didn’t thought of being the best while taking the exam and doing the paper. I didn’t expect that this will be the end-result to all of my hard works. Inside me was a really happy kid.
