Entrance exam update

My daughter took an entrance test in a university in Manila last year. She passed the IQ, Math, English and Science tests but her scores did not meet the school’s required cut-off scores. Even if she qualifies to enroll we may not be able to send her to that school because we cannot afford the tuition fee.


Last Saturday, she took another exam for a different school. My daughter said the test was much easier compared to the first one. And they waited for less than an hour to get the result. She passed the entrance examination and qualified for admission. This university offers the course that she wants to pursue. We will try to look for a scholarship to assist us with the expenses. I know it’s going to be tough for all of us next school year.

Never sleep with earphones on

There are two things I’m telling my kids why they should not sleep with their earphones or headphones on. One, listening to loud music through earphones can damage the ear over time. Second, they’ve used countless of earphones because they end up crushing them or pulling the earphone cable while they are asleep. I always remind them to just listen to soft music on the radio to lull them to sleep, but my plea always fell on deaf ears.
