Passed the Ateneo MBA entrance exam


and ranked 9th in the Ateneo MBA entrance exam despite the overtime work the previous night, the lack of sleep, waking up late, no breakfast, and no preparation.

I am good at Math BUT not under time pressure. On the bright side, I finished ahead of time in the reading comprehension, inference, deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning. In the word analogy exam, I encountered the word « fluvial », which is supposed to be tricky, but I definitely know that la fleuve is just river in French. hah!

Someone (from a blue school) asked if my ego is now bloated. I simply said: « No, my ego is as flat as the world ». Who said LaSallians cannot excel in Ateneo? One big fight!



A song that you once thought you would forever long kept playing in your head, even with the play button unpressed. A flashback in the middle of pitch black used to play that track whenever moods attacked. Ticking like a clock, with hands not getting tired.

Until the infatuation reached saturation. Like a memorized poem recited in the room. Or the finest chocolate, but consumed until eight. The melody once harmonious has notes now monotonous. Moving like a machine, full of rust within.

The person – or at least the idea – is fading.
