A faculty of arts and letters student from the University of Santo Tomas, Mark James Capulong made his accumulated bus tickets into a toga on his graduation after studying for four years.

The post already got 29,000 reactions and 6,000 shares which he didn't imagine will happen. As per Mark James, " it is not easy going to Manila from San Pedro, Laguna, because it will take him two hours the least just to get to school. At first, Mark thought of residing in a dormitory near his school but as a second child, he also needs to help his mom with house chores.
He also describes and tells what are his challenges traveling everyday especially when raining and the worst is every payday that even in skyway he still stuck in traffic. As per Mark, " Manila traffic will really test one's patience" with a good concept and time management and ethics, if one can endure this kind of agony for years, then I believe they can overcome any life.
