Back to Blogging

Hi, everyone!!! God I miss this!!! I know, I know it’s been forever since I last blogged. It’s been almost a year!!! (forgive the screaming I just miss blogging, BIG TIME)  Do know that no day passed that I haven’t thought of writing back. Nobody gets things out of their mind when they love it to the moon and back, right?

I was in a journey while I was out in the blogosphere and perhaps the times I was stumbled explain the hiatus.  And I would love to share that journey with you--- the challenges I met, how I cope with the challenges, the insights I realized, and many others in between. Yes, I am BACK to blogging.

Now let me share with you few things I was up to while I was out.

In my previous posts, I mentioned that after college graduation I went to Cebu for a CSA job with Sprint, Convergys. Have I told you that it was a high school dream to be working as such? *wink *wink Sprint is a telecommunications company in the U.S. similar to Smart of Globe here in the Philippines. It is a tough account and I was very lucky to be regularized. But then of course I couldn’t be a CSA forever (even if I was living my dream). My other dreams of becoming a catalyst for learning and becoming an instrument in shaping the country through education wouldn’t come into reality if I’ll remain an agent. So with an end in mind, I worked at the same time self-reviewed for LET which I took September last year. Perhaps by luck, I passed the exam (in my first take) and I absolutely owe it to God. I never thought I’d make it because of how complex everything was at the time.

I was in a graveyard shift and I know it was too risky to do a self-review. Adding to that was that I couldn’t sleep well. Whole night I would take calls but in a supposedly making up with sleep during the day, my eyes were only literally closed, but my mind--- up and running. Perhaps it was because of too much exposure to radiation from my computer screen at work. Whole day I’d lie on bed like that and it was the same all day in months. I needed to physically tire myself first before I could fall asleep. Yes, this is one reason why I resigned, and another reason why I doubted myself in passing the exam.

Having said all these I think you get why passing the LET is my greatest achievement by far. To me it attests to my belief that no matter how complicated some things may be, if we persevere and cling to God, nothing is impossible to achieve. What do you think?

Life after Convergys and more stories in the next posts.
Stick around. :)

Guest Speaker

I am currently in my brother's room using his computer since my netbook's keyboard is not in its best function. I felt an urgency to speak for what I'm feeling right now. Thing is, I am very grateful for the chance to speak before the graduates of the schools where I spent my elementary and secondary years. 

I once told myself to go back to these schools because it's where I started honing myself to become who I am today. But I only thought of going back in a reunion or something else. Not as a guest speaker.

Nevertheless, I am truly grateful for life's way of bringing me back to these schools, these very dear schools: Ma. Cristina Elementary School and Dapitan City National High School. It's where I first spent my tender years of education and learned the true essence of struggle. The schools where I also learned many things about myself and had second parents. Upon arriving on their graduation day few weeks ago, I felt at home. 

Of course, being given the chance, I placed my best foot forward in transpiring the words of acumen that would inspire the graduates to pursue their education. I do hope, that with the humble experiences and meaningful struggles and lessons I narrated, I have inspired them. 

@ Dapitan City National High School

Some of my dear high school teachers. I wonder why they're not getting any older..!!

Summer Escapade at Manuel's

Hey hey lovelies, how are you?
Allow me to share my photo diary of the summer escapade I had with friends last week.  Summer is obviously here and the SUN is absolutely scorching!!! So I figured, why not go out for swimming? It'll be perfect to complete my summer.
