well… figuratively, that is. Plus it’s the first word that came to my mind while I was thinking about the title for this post.

This coming 1st semester for AY 2012-2013 I plan to spend most of my Saturdays in UP… hanging out at the library… libraries… reading books about Language, Adult Learning, Teaching, and everything in between.

I’m gonna lay my brain bare, again. :D

 

Learn. Unlearn. Improve. Become better, and better every day.

 

P.S.

Happy Birthday, Buddha! :)

The Winner is always a part of the answer;
The Loser is always a part of the problem

The winner always has a plan
The loser always has an excuse

The Winner says “Let me do it for you”
The loser says “That’s not my Job”

The winner sees an answer in every problem
The loser sees a problem in every answer

The loser sees a sandtrap near every green

The winner says “It may be difficult but its possible.
The loser says ‘It may be possible but its difficult”

Balance

“To acquire balance means to achieve that happy medium between the minimum and the maximum that represents your optimum. The minimum is the least you can get by with. The maximum is the most you’re capable of. The optimum is the amount or degree of anything that is most favorable toward the ends you desire.”

Summer Class 2012

The summer classes for 2012 have officially started! :D

My goal is to get another flat 1.0 in this subject and learn a lot. I mean A LOT in every sense of the term because I plan to stay for longer hours at the library. :) I want to research and explore my options. I want to KNOW the famous people in my chosen field so I can finally choose my path.

 

to be continued…

I’m not good with dates…

I suck at remembering dates — BIRTHDAYS, to be exact… that’s why I keep this small “calendar” that I bought from Papemelroti. I constantly update it and fill it with my friends’ birthdays… 

 

speaking of which, I made this blog on April 14, 2011 but because I forgot it I’m just greeting myself now. :D

so… HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TO MY DEAR BLOG! :D 

Shoulda Woulda Coulda

‘di naman talaga ako ‘yong tipo ng tao na grade conscious… ask my FRIENDS… ang tamad ko at wala halos akong pakialam sa grades ko noon…

pero kasi iba na ngayon eh… ako na ‘yong talagang pumili nito. Masasabi mong “conscious” ako nang sinimulan ko ‘tong Master’s eklat ko…

ayan ayan… ang tamad tamad ko kasi (so kailangan pauli-ulit? unli?)… ang tamad kong magpasa ng papers on time samantalang kaya ko naman (yata!). ‘di ako bagsak pero ang baba… pakiramdam ko wala akong karapatang magreklamo kasi kasalanan ko naman talaga, nag-iinarte lang ako… 

 THIS IS ME RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT:

If only my co-workers know that all I want to do right now is:

 pero…  dahil cool ako (ayon sa sarili ko) eh babawi ako sa sarili ko… (idinaan ko na lang sa pagkain ng Cadbury Sundae ng McDo ang sama ng loob ko…)

bakit? dahil gusto kong mag-aral kahit short course lang sa Harvard at Cambridge University… taas ba? kasi naman, mangangarap ka na nga lang eh ‘di LAKI LAKIHAN MO NA. :) 

bakit Harvard at Cambridge? for experience at dahil na rin sa pangalan ng mga nabanggit na unibersidad. Usapang prangka ba kamo? tamang blog ang napuntahan mo. XD

And blah

Perplexed. shet. kunwari deep.

But seriously, I am confused. again.

I feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere, doing something but learning nothing. have you ever had that feeling?

Harvard

Actually matagal ko na ‘tong naiisip pero ngayon ko lang ibo-blog…

I watched Legally Blonde 1 again last Saturday with my brother (watching movies and series on our laptop serves as our bonding time). Whenever I watch this flick, I feel limitless… ‘yong feeling na parang kayang kaya mong gawin lahat na parang si Elle Woods. Ang epekto? Nabuhay na naman ang delusyon kong kaya kong makapasok sa Harvard University

Then I came across this blog. WOW lang. Siya na ang nakapag-take ng summer courses sa Harvard at Yale. 

It made me more curious… What if ‘di ba? What if I have what it takes to be a Harvard student despite all the things this guy had mentioned in his blog about Harvard’s admit rate?

‘di mo nga naman malalaman kung hindi mo susubukan.

whatchathink?

I am a teacher

iba pa rin talaga kapag nakakatanggap ka ng compliments galing sa mga estudyante mo… :)

Jason, Linda, and Andy… they are my students every 4pm… and yesterday, I received one of the best, sweetest, and unexpected  (yet very challenging) compliments from them… actually I think Jason was the one who said it and it goes like this:

Jason: teacher, who is the best teacher here?

Me: I don’t know (then I turned around and faced the board)

… they kept on talking in Korean then suddenly:

Jason: teacher, I think you’re the best grammar teacher in ***.

|| siyempre napangiti ako pero secret lang… :)
