Passed the Ateneo MBA entrance exam

26/05/2009

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!


Fading

22/05/2009

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.
