As much as I hate to compress my thank yous in two pages, I don’t have much choice. I only have at most two pages for my thesis acknowledgment. So as promised – I’m posting my thesis acknowledgment here. The final grading will still be on Thursday but I want to post it now anyway.
Writing this thesis had been a struggle – from choosing a significant topic up to the final defense and final editing. Finally, the struggle had come to an end. Nonetheless, I would not have come this far if not for the people who made me feel that I did not have to bear the struggle alone; you deserve to be mentioned in this page.
My sincerest gratitude to the following:
To my family – mama and papa – for not failing to guide and support me while writing this thesis, for making me learn the hard way, and for giving your best in making the hard way memorable. To my younger sibs – J1 and Lucks – for inspiring me in doing this thesis despite the distance.
To my Ninang Melins, for being my second mother, and for being a part of my struggle.
To my adviser – Ma’am Karen – for the guidance and support, and for keeping me on the right track.
To the panelists – Ma’am Jeni, Ma’am Jhoanna, Sir Nino, and Sir Dennis – for helping me improve my thesis.
To Sir Wilfred, for patiently editing my thesis.
To Brgy. Captain Ramon Bargamento II and to the councilors and employees of Barangay Mintal Office, for allowing me to conduct a research in your office and for always directing me to the right resources.
To my cousin – Kuya Franj and his family – for offering me a home away from home and for allowing me to use the computer while I was on my dusk till dawn thesis-making.
To my favorite uncle – Uncle Almer and his family – for allowing me to use their personal computer when I needed to finish and polish my thesis.
To the gang who gave me the coolest friendship ever – Beans, you know what I always have to say to you, thanks for being the best; Gold and Corinne – for being my thesis buddies, I will never forget our sleepless thesis nights; Joan, Anj, Krish, Steh – for always inspiring me and for the usual tagline “Kaya mo yan, naging Rea ka pa.”
