To the Malls!

October 11 is the deadline for our Economics project. What's the project about you ask? Well it can be about anything that we've discussed in the past lessons! Inspired from the book "The World is Flat", I suggested a documentary on Globalization!

A yes! What a nice idea. We're going to go around the biggest malls in the country next week to get some videos and photos that would be of use to us. I've been learning so much the past few weeks but sadly they're not really related to school. I better return to my school work though because I'm pretty much delayed on my school work based on my calendar.

Before I call it a day here's a cool quote that I think was from Mark Twain:

"Never let school interfere with your education"

I, together with many other students, sadly cannot just follow that.


A Master Revival

My title sounds like an English Pokémon episode title of the early seasons but it's not. This post is about my plans for the future. I finished the book that I mentioned in my previous post a few days ago and I was moved by a segment there about the impact of getting a College and a Master's degree.

"There is just no way that I'm going to take a master's degree in Computer Science in UP." - Me

Yeah you got that right! My almost 4 year experience of Computer Science here in UPLB turned me off Computer Science. People have criticized me for having lost that love for the course when I was already in my last year. All I want to do now is to graduate from UP as soon as possible.

I changed my mind. I want to earn lots of money and be a knowledgeable boss in the future and a good way to achieve that is to allow myself to take a master's degree. I don't like being away from home that often and I love the city life way more than I love the mountain life so that crosses out my current University. Well, I know another good school that I can go to.

How in the world did I forget about the "dream" school? My mom and I were discussing about my plans after graduation and she asked if I would take a master's degree course and I immediately said no to her.

Why? I thought you said you wanted to take a master's degree? she asked.

Ma, that was when I thought I was going to DLSU. You'll just need one extra year to get your master's degree there.
I replied.

Boom it hit me! When I agreed to study to UPLB (a Win-Win agreement between me and my parents) they said "just get your master's degree at La Salle". Why not? Why not! I went to DLSU's website to search for details and I found what I was looking for. They were offering a Master's Degree for Computer Science but since I'm now scared of taking any course with "Computer Science" in it I became hesitant. Maybe this was not such a good idea after all. I scrolled down the graduate page some more and my answer appeared!

Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT)

Oh my gosh! Information Technology and not Computer Science?

Temporary Graduation Wish List:
Tuition Fee for my Master of Science in Information Technology degree at DLSU. Price... a painful 200k+ if my computations were correct.

Sorry UP fans...
