If there’s a will, there’s a way. Fresh graduate Renzel Robles shares her experience getting to the venue of her commencement exercises, which trended on Facebook. She wrote a lengthy post narrating her experience as well as six photos and two videos to validate her ‘journey’.
“So here’s my graduation experience.
My batchmates were able to march and sit in their respective seats. There was a road under construction in Roxas [Boulevard], and I realized it was a Monday as well – the traffic was intense! We weren’t moving at all! I had the immense urge to use the restroom, I was shaking and felt like crying. Of course, I waited for this for five years! I would literally do anything to finally reach the day and the moment I’ve been ultimately waiting for.
So, I was left with no choice. I decided to go down our car. A motorcycle driver was parked nearby and I was courageous enough to ask Kuya Ron – I rode behind him! It was embarrassing but I knew I had to do it. Huhuhu. So there, even without a helmet, I was wearing the San Beda Toga revving Roxas [Boulevard]. My false eyelashes nearly fell out with our speed – but I felt safe anyhow since Kuya was cautious. Hahaha.
To my batchmates, yes – I was the only one who went down by herself in the Plenary Hall stairs. I don’t have anyone to face anymore. ????????
To kuya Ron, we were no longer able to have a photo taken since I was jogging towards PICC in my heels. THANK YOU SO MUCH – YOU’RE A GIFT FROM HEAVEN. (To whoever knows him, he’s from Balut, I forgot his surname. Huhuhu. ????)
My graduation was truly memorable. ❤???? I DO NOT REGRET THAT I WAS LATE FOR IT. ????????????????????”
Congratulations for making it to your commencement exercises, as well as for graduating, Renzel! :)
