- Highlighters and (Sticky) Notepads
Paano nga ba tayo makakatanda? Simple, highlight important information. Humanities and Social Sciences cover broad fields of interest aimed at understanding humanity better. Be ready as your teachers will be giving you handouts and readings like crazy. You have to know which information are crucial and note them. This will prevent information overload. Notes or sticky notes are good tools to mark references and notable points.
- Watch or Clock
Keep track of your time. Tama na ang paggugol ng oras sa hindi naman makabuluhang bagay, beshie. In the HUMSS strand, you will be given lots and lots of research works. At times, you will be asked to create fiction or non-fiction outputs for a specific subject. Hassle, beshie, if you don’t manage your time properly. Ikaloloka mo, besh, kung nagsabay-sabay lahat ng paper sa iisang deadline date. Mapapa-MDS ka na lang na ‘I eat deadlines for breakfast’.
Whatever you do, wherever you are, if you are part of the HUMSS, you must keep your chin up and put your best foot forward. Remember, that a HUMSS student shows the world that we are confidently beautiful with a heart and a brain.
