My dreams may have been delayed, but they are certainly not denied. It is not my time to shine, but rather it is a time to applaud the accomplishments of others.
Atty. -insert name-, CPA—the only prefix and suffix that I would mercilessly endure sleepless nights for—delayed. For three grueling years, I have fought for that dream; tooth and nail, I have fought, and at the last moment, I failed. Anger, frustration, disappointment—you name any negative emotion, rest assured I felt it after failing the qualifying exam for the incoming fourth year by a few decimals.
Accountancy was the last course I considered when deciding what to study in college; I simply was not interested. I had planned to take a Legal Management or a Political Science course, but because my high school teachers and parents told me that there are many opportunities in Accountancy, I chose this program instead. My freshman year went well, but things got a little rocky during my sophomore year when Financial Accounting, also known as Intermediate Accounting, was introduced. That subject had nothing intermediate about it, but I made it until the last semester of my junior year.
My initial thought was that I was not interested in the course, but I was interested in graduating. However, as time passed and I learned more about this field, I fell in love with it. It was not love at first sight, but love at gradual comprehension. So, when I found out that I would not continue this course, I had no idea what to feel or how to express them. I was frustrated, but I accepted what happened and took full responsibility for the results, which belonged to God and me, not to any professor or classmate.
Now I am on an unintentional journey He has prepared for me. My dreams may have been delayed, but they are certainly not denied. It is not my time to shine, but rather it is a time to applaud the accomplishments of others.
So, to BSA and BSMA Seniors, congratulations on making it to our final year!
