I have black circles around my eyes. I could feel I really look wasted and worn out. I even think I could now be a model for that vitamins commercial where people look older due to stress. I barely slept for the past two days because Thursdays up to Saturdays are the busiest days of my week. I have 9pm to 1am shift every Thursday for work then 7:30 am class the next day then the perilous Machine Design 2 class come Saturday.
With my really tight schedule, I really can't have the time to work on my Design plates or even review my notes. And now that I'm spending a little more time with my friends again, I'm sure to fail if I allow it to become a regular habit just like before.
Mapua (or Malayan) right now, is seeking accreditation from ABET, a widely recognized accreditor of college/university programs concerned with applied science, engineering etc. In line with this, the test papers of students for every quiz or examination are being classified from the highest scores, mid-scores and the lowest scores. Three papers will be lifted from each of the three categories every time and will be sent to ABET in the States and will be studied for the mean, median and mode blah blah.
While it is good to imagine my penmanship (which is a part of me) will be able to go to the States, I wished the situation could have been better. My paper was one of those handpicked by Engr. Larrion of my Design lecture class after the first quiz. He never announced in class which of them will go to the highest or the lowest, but after comparing my scores with some of my classmates, I know for sure I was one of the lowest.
