First day of classes! :)
I super love our ChE 134 instructor!
Thank you for spending the entire semester with me. I hope that after this sem, I have somehow inspired you more to continue and finish Chemical Engineering. The country is in dire need of engineers who could provide long-term solutions to its present problems, and I hope that in a few years, you will become one of them (I, too, will become one this November, hopefully). For those of you who are still having doubts about ChE, I hope I made ChE 134 as enjoyable and valuable as possible. More than that, I hope I have instilled in you the sense of teamwork. Few students realize that our own curriculum emphasizes the importance of working in teams (e.g. in your lab, design, and research courses). Learn to extend help, and ask for help. Study well, work hard, and never give up. Most of all, enjoy your college lives.
I pray that God will guide you in whatever choices you will make in the future. Thank you for making my first semester of teaching very fulfilling and rewarding.
See you around,
I’m currently working as a student assistant in the Engineering Library I. The pay is minimal: we’ll be paid 30 pesos per hour of duty. I’m stationed at the Circulation and Reserve Desk where the transactions for borrowing and returning books and paying fees for overdue books occur. I already got the hang of all the tasks in this station. Sometimes, I feel like I’m performing better compared to the regular staff here. Hahaha, just kidding. :)
The maximum number of hours per month is 120 hours, but I’ve accumulated 145 hours for the month of July! Thanks to our internal arrangements, I could earn extra cash. I could say I’m the top earner among the student assistants assigned to this library. Yey to excellence! Thanks also to this SA stint, now I have my own ATM account.
I’ll be using most of my earnings to pay for outstanding debts that I owe to several people. I still have no plans yet for the rest of my salary. Maybe buy a flash drive or something.
I’m enjoying my work so far. I hope I could still keep this up until the end of the semester. :)
