Yes! I finaly made it! No more worrying (except for the speech I need to compose… -_-” )
Instead of crying, I could only laugh when it was announced TODAY. They said it was on Friday, but it was cancelled, so that made me a little impatient and more scared of the results. Both Ren (Valedictorian) and I, I realized, had the same feeling of doubt and nervousness. His was more obvious after the announcement. He seem quite relieved and shocked. He was probably threatened by my good grades and I threatened by the good grades of our third honor. What? Oh Ren! I’d like you to be the valedictorian, since… I just don’t want it. I’m just satisfied with the award next to yours. I just shook his hands three times to show my sincerity in being happy for his achievement.
It has been three months since “mangiyak-ngiyak ako” about this. That is why at the start of the last quarter of school I did my best, my whole best, as in hindi ko talaga pinalagpas lahat. Almost every detail I made sure I’d get a high score, if not perect score. And last week, and last last week, and the week before that (ok, let’s just say the whole month of March), I was nervous to tears. I know you’d understand. Many people will say, “Ok na yun, basta may honor. Ako nga wala eh.” But I am in a different situation. People expect me to be salutatorian. Many eyes are watching me. So I hope that you wouldn’t say that to someone who is in a situation like me and Ren Senson. I understand quite much.
But now I can breathe. These past few weeks I was so depressed. I knew I could lose it. But thank God I made it through. Thank you! This is the fruit of my labours and God’s help, too. So, I share my happiness to everybody.
To my CKL friends: Hahaha! You were more nervous kanina! Haha. Please help me buy that orange thing again (Pyon-chan). I can’t get over it. It has sentimental value.
