6 Reasons Why You Should Take the UPCAT
1. UP Campuses are utterly beautiful.
Strolling around UP campuses is not the "typical speed walking" to your next class. It will be mini nature trips and museum visits every single time because there will be patches of trees and art installations, and open spaces everywhere you look. You might be super tired from all your school works but you will never get tired of the sights around campus!
2. You have to meet the people.
The beauty of the place could be one of the reasons to go but the people will forever be the reason to stay. There will be days when you'll encounter people who think exactly like you do. While on other days, you will bump into people who are going to make you question your very own ideas. Listen to them—all of them. Because they will do the same to you and that is the best thing about UP; it makes space for everything you have to say.
3. And taste the food.
We're sure you have heard tales on how foodies visit UP campuses just to grab a bite. The food in UP is easy on the pocket (Promise, your allowance will pile up—it's that student-friendly!) but does not fall short in deliciousness! Be careful though, because Freshman 15 is NOT a myth!
4. UP professors are the best.
In UP, fangirling over professors is kind of a usual thing. UP professors have so many accomplishments under their sleeves and it will always feel like such an honor to even be in the same room with them. However, that also means that you'd always have to step up to keep up. But you love a good challenge, don't you?
5. Say goodbye to your uniforms.
You can finally ditch your high school uniform (we know you are secretly tired of wearing it *wink*) because UP will give you a chance to express yourself through your clothes. UP students see fashion as a form of self-expression so you can wear whatever feels right and you will not be judged!
6. UP education will change your life.
UP is not the number one university in the country for nothing. This place will push you out of your comfort zone and pull you under just for you to learn how to keep your head above water. It is tough out here but you will be thriving with the best of the best and every single day you will emerge better than you were yesterday. No diamonds can be formed without pressure and you’ll never know—this might be your place to shine.
UP is known for other things too like the annoying long lines and the inefficient enrollment system but there are more things to love about the state university, trust us. UP may not be the perfect university, but it just might be perfect for you!

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
