College Graduation

April 24, 2007. This day will be remembered by UP Law Batch 2007 as the day we bade farewell to the College after 4 to 5 years of toil and hard work. Congratulations to us who graduated. My esteem to those who graduated with distinction. My thanks to those who made the 4-year stay worthwhile, fun, and definitely memorable. My thanks to B2007 who welcomed me as in their age group though they always remind me of this . My thanks also to the those who were my teammates in the Office of Legal Aid. It was one heck of an experience.

Law school is an extraordinary experience. I am not talking about the grueling recitations, the tremendous study load, and demanding professors. I am talking about the high school like experience wherein for almost four years, and almost everyday in those years, one attends class with the same people. This would inevitably put an indelible mark in one's bank of memories. I would never forget the seat mates I had in those four years. Literally, they were closest to me. I would always remember the individual personalities of my block mates and the peculiarities of each.

It is the natural course of things that after this event, we will drift apart. To stay as close as when we were students cannot be expected. But each recalling of the shared experience, good or bad, will bring me a smile of reminiscence. Each particular remembrance of law school experience will for a moment bring me to that time when I walked the halls of Malcolm Hall and the people that I happen to share those moments. And these moments may very well give me solace and temporary rest when the rigors of the new life ahead takes its toll on a once law student.
