LET Experience of an Anime/ CosPlay Enthusiast ;)

Before I start, I would like to say that I am not being arrogant here. I am not boasting that I passed without even studying REALLY HARD for LET. Honestly, I am a little guilty that I was too lazy and passed while some were working SO HARD but did not pass. I feel that I do not deserve this, but God gave this to me. I would use this gift from Him 🙂

Alright, here it goes. .. 

.

I talked about LET (Licensure Examination for Teachers) on my previous post. But to give a review, it is a type of board exam for “lincensed teacher” candidates here in the Philippines. I finished my Bachelor of Secondary Education major in English course on April last year (2014).

.

There was LET on August of the same year but since I just arrived from my internship on Vietnam, I was not ready yet to take it. There was a CosPlay event that the CosPlay Team which I am part of has to organize and I decided to focus helping on that first. I was a NEET for almost eight months but it did not motivate me to study for LET. There is anime and CosPlay that I had to work on. Then, I decided to work while waiting for the next LET that will be held the next year (March 2015.)

.

I got hired as a part-time college teacher so I was glad. I was thinking that I would have enough time to study for the coming LET. I did study though- a bit. I always feel sleepy when I was studying! To be honest, I was so relaxed that was why I did not really expect that I will pass. I was lazy. I was always watching anime, listening to music, sleeping, reading novels and playing RPG and other games on my phone.

.

I got really busy doing things that did not have anything to do with LET. But when the date of the examinations got closer, my friends and classmates started setting schedules for all of us to meet and study as a group. I agreed, of course. I was always trying my best to avoid any social contact but because they are my friends from college and I barely see them altogether since our graduation, I decided to meet them. We all agreed to study in my place.

.

It was my place so I felt, as usual, lazy to study even though they were all around me and very enthuasistic. Besides, I have my CosPlay plan and the anime I was scheduled to watch that day running on my mind. I failed to totally cooperate when they started to throw ideas and knowledge. But I was listening while I was half- awake and half- asleep. By the end of the day, we still had fun and, even only a few, learned something new from each other.

.

On the day of the exam, we arrived one day ahead on the city where we were going to take it. We did that on purpose so we can get rooms on the hotel for everyone in the group. Basically, we had almost a whole day to study. That was the plan. But of course, plans were not always worked out. What we did was stroll around the city and had fun shopping. A few of us stayed in the hotel and slept. We only had short group studies that day, including the one we had after dinner, before we all go to sleep.

.

I was not really caring about the results because I put everything unto God’s hands. I trusted his words. It would be fine if I did not pass. I already have a work and I am not too much interested into serving a government owned High School yet. My family is fine with that, too. They always support me. But, of course, it would also be fine if I pass. I think it would be better for my family and friends if I pass. It would be an amazing payback for them.

.

But on the day of the examinations, we were all hopeless after we had the test on Professional Education. It was difficult for us! Both the General Education and Major exams were on average level. None of us were expecting anyone to pass. We basically accepted the fact that we were defeated.

.

Weeks have passed. I kept on trusting God and telling Him that I would be fine with whatever plan He has for me and my friends. I kept telling Him that whether or not I pass, I will still praise His Holiness. Therefore, I relaxed again and did my usual things.

.

Summer break started. I do not have to go to work for some weeks so I have more time for myself. I started working on my anime and CosPlay plan backlogs. Everything was normal until rumors about the release date of LET results started flooding my Facebook newsfeeds.

.

I was honestly feeling uneasy that week. My heart was pounding like my anime crushes are in front of me and asking me out on a date! But I was able to calm myself after saying short prayers and calling God’s name for an embrace. I always feel relaxed when I talk to Him.

.

I would not say that I pray every minute of the day. I only call out to Him everytime I feel I was losing hope. I call out to Him everytime I feel that my goal seems confusing and vague. Of course, I utterly thank Him for the blessings, too.

.

So, for my friends who were asking how I passed LET and for the people who are wondering how to pass the exam, this is what I want to say: I passed the LET without changing myself. I did not do anything special. I just lived my life normally. I did my usual things (working while not stressing myself too much about LET) while trusting God 🙂

RELAX, TRUST GOD AND TAKE THINGS EASY 🙂
