My name is Jocelle Dela Cruz, a law student in Polytechnic University of the Philippines and the author of the blog "The Legally Blunt". I was born on a hazy day of August 23, 1991. I have small yet tantalizing eyes, aquiline nose, fair complexion and an average built of height and weight. My family and other relatives are fond of calling me Jocelle, but I prefer Jhay-cee. I grew up in a populous yet lively neighborhood in Tatalon, Quezon City.
I best describe myself in 3 C's -- Courageous, Capable and Crazy! I know that perfection doesn't exist in this world but I always make sure that everything I do is out of my 100% effort because in all means, my name is at stake. I enjoy reading mystery novels from authors like Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham and James Patterson. I am also very fond of romantic-comedy movies. Becoming a lawyer was at first my Mom's dream for but as I go along the journey, I learned to love and claim it! I decided to put up this blog to share how it's like to be a one hot crazy law student chic.
Halos 5 years na rin tayong nagkakasama no? Since undergrad kaklase na kita pero di ko masabing magkakilala na nga tayo sa mga panahon na yun kasi we both belong to different circle of friends. Ang lagi ko kasing nkakausap lang ay si Sienn na walang choice kundi ang tumabi saken dahil sa pareho kaming Dela Cruz ang surname. Siguro it is safe to say na you are the opposite of who I am. Kaya siguro medyo naniwala ka noon na kesyo ganito ang ugali ko at hndi madaling makasundo. I can't blame them, sobrang strong naman kasi talaga ng personality ko kaya maraming nagsasabi na hndi ako madaling pakisamahan. Kung ano yung kinalakas ng dating ng aura ko sya namang kinatahimik ng pagkatao mo. Konting dikit pa saken Sahb lalakas din ang loob mo. Contagious kaya ang fighting spirit ko :)) Nakakatawa no? Kapag nakkwento naten sa mga kaklase natin noon na tayo ang magkasundo sa Law School nagugulat sila at nagtataka kung paanong ang isang tahimik na tulad mo ay sasama sa ubod ng ingay na kagaya ko. Well, sabi nga nila "Opposite attracts".
WRITTEN BY: SOPHIE Packing up your books and leaving the distractions of your house, you tell yourself that you’ll study much better in the library at uni. Your conviction lasts until the moment you arrive at the library and decide you need a coffee before you can start studying and oh no, you’ve forgotten your laptop power cord.
You decide to head home to the creature comforts that will definitely make studying easier and more productive. It’s the “I’ll study better at home/at uni” catch 22.
Having trouble deciding where you’ll study most effectively? Consider the following advantages and disadvantages of studying at home and in the library...
