As some of you may already know, I was struggling with a decision weeks ago, on whether I should go back to studying or just work. One problem with going back to school was the chance that I might not be allowed back due to my already very long stay in the same university. A couple of days ago, I got admitted again and I was so relieved. Not really proud but just over-relieved. If you were in my shoes in the past days, you would definitely know how good that felt after all the tension, stress and nervousness. Anyway, now that I have made it back in to the university, I would like to take this opportunity to thank God, my family who have been supportive all the way, my dear girlfriend, who patiently helped and assisted me in many ways, my friends, and of course the people here in mylot for all their encouraging thoughts and prayers. Now that I'll be studying again, I guess I'll have less time here and just focus more on my studies. This is my last shot at it. So, how about you guys,anybody had a hard time and made it through? Care to share?

Congratulations on going back to school. As you may have known, education is really important. I have graduated already couple of years ago but I know how it feels to be having a hard time going back to school because I stopped for one semester due to some decision I have to make regarding school and course to take. But I am relieved that it is all over now. I wish you all the best on your study.

Thank you very much for the support. I am indeed determined to finish my studies this time. This is something I'm doing for myself, my parents, and for the important people in my life. I just really hope that I could make it through all the difficulties ahead. I would be missing mylot soon.

Congrats dear friend! I am glad to hear that things are looking so good for you and I know you will do great. I have found that there are many tough times and it is these that help us appreciate even more the times when plans follow through or when good things happen for us.

Thank you. I am actually adjusting my self to my new schedule now. I have a hard time getting up early in the morning as I sleep late, but thankfully I have got no classes that starts too early for me. It is true, the hard experiences either make us or break us. I just hope that I do go through the plans I have already set and don't wander away from it.

That's some really great news and I guess congratulations are in order. You should really be proud of yourself to doing what you really want to do which is to go back to school despite your long stay at that same university. I was lucky to have finished my schooling back in college even though we had some financial difficulties and I really made it worth my time and my parents' money. I did have a few friends back in college though who had quite the same experience as yours. They have stayed for almost ten years for a 5 year course and even though they were in such a situation, they are now as successful as some other people I know. You should have seen their very happy faces and proud postures when they graduated after 10 years and we were happy for them. This is your chance and I hope you really get to have what you want very soon. WE'll be missing you here at Mylot but please try to drop by anytime and give us some updates okay?

Well done Choybel. Everyone could make something happen if they really won it. It is really good that you made what you wonted to. I think that we all have difficult moments in our lives but we have to face them up and fight till we beat our goal. I remember that I was not so good student and I was really nervous when I wonted to go to the university but I really wonted to be there and I made it!
