Time of my Life - David Cook

I have always dreamed of becoming a lawyer. Back in 1997 when I finally got a chance to read a newspaper article about lady bar topnotcher whose last name is Fernandez from UP College of Law (which I saw from wikipedia her first name to be Cecilia), I got myself so engrossed to the idea that soon, I will make it to Law School. The circumstance of my life back then denied me that opportunity.

I just have to finally write it down here because in just a short while, I too will be hurdling that dreaded, most feared and known to be the hardest exam in the land - the Bar Exams. The year 1997 for lady bar top notchers was repeated the following year (please refer to my source for complete details) and this time from the Law School north of Manila, the University of the Cordilleras.

Priorities in life changed as I was already earning. Then I have to earn more so I could pursue my law school but there came a time that I thought I have to get a Master's degree first. Then ten years after, in 2007, I did what I thought was impossible. I enrolled in Law School and upon seeing my classmates, I knew it wasn't too late for me to try and survive the first semester... and I did. I barely survived it, especially the second semester. But fate had been kind so I passed all my subjects in my first year. Time seem to fly so fast and I suddenly realize that I am already in my fourth year. A little more step then I will soon be entering that Bar exam room. The thought gives me mixed emotions. Happy to have almost made it through law school but afraid to take a step further.

I am afraid but I am going to do whatever it takes and probably will have to drag myself beyond what I think to be my limits. I have so much dreams for myself, for my family, for my mother land. In the end, I would like to be singing one of my favorite David Cook songs at the American Idol "Time of my Life". That is the only song I can only hear right now and I would love to get that time of my life where I can finally see the letters ATTY before my name... God-willing!

Thanks for your time.


Here goes the lyrics of the song from the American Idol website:

TIME OF MY LIFE by David Cook

I’ve been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something
I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn’t see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I’m coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin’ my world start to turn

And I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

Holding onto things that vanished
Into the air
Left me in pieces
But now I’m rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

So I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I’m out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I’m keeping my feet on the ground
My arms open wide
My face to the sun

I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
This is the time
This is the time of my life.
This is the time of my life.

Great piece! I'm off to law school myself after 12 years of doubting myself. Finally, it has come. First day of class this coming Sat. Saying a little prayer for us dreamers tonight. Congrats you!
