My Continuing Education

…is almost over now and so my life will be back to the normal routine again. Eight school days more and I’m done with my studies and I am looking forward to it. The past 5 months was tough and I could hardly believed I managed to pass the exams with an equivalent grade of superior achievement šŸ™‚ (look who’s bragging). But believe me, I was only able to achieved it with diligence and discipline. See, kong kailan tumanda saka pa ako naging seryoso sa pag-aaral.

I learned Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash, CSS, Dreamweaver and last but not least PHP and MySQL. I had Javascript on my list but I dropped it due to lack of time. I decided to concentrate on PHP and MySQL since I find them very important. The fact that we were only given four weeks time to learn PHP already made me feel sick. Gush, I fully understimated this programming course. I realized it was something difficult to learn after flipping some pages of the manual. I started having doubts if I would ever undertand the whole thing. But whatelse can I do? I was in the middle of my studies and even if I was on the verge of going insane, I have to continue orlese I have to pay back all the money the government has paid for my continuing studies to the institute. Little by little, step by step I begun to understand PHP. I was even learning at home until late at night thus hubby started complaining about me neglecting him, thus I started having nightmares when I sleep. Sounds horrible huh? But hey, the reward of all my effort is a grade of 1.0. We had no written exam for this subject but a practical exam. This means we have to develop a script, I for instance decided for a blog.

Yes, you are reading it right, a blog. It is currently running on my server as a food blog (installed for my previous exam) named The Joy Of Cooking. It was a hard work and I sweat blood over each line of codes.

    Ate Beng, alam ko sisiw lang yan sayo. I know you can always do it – no if’s and but’s. Age doesn’t matter if you want to learn something. Infact, we should learn different things everyday, that’s what’s keeping us alive. Strive for Excellence ika nga. :coffee
