Hello, readers! Welcome to another volume of 10 Awesome Things This Week–ironic ‘cause I’m writing about last week’s shenanigans now since I haven’t got enough time to write this entry last week. So as I was scrolling through my old blog entries (stalking thyself, eh?), I happened to come across the lone volume of this segment; got quite anxious since I haven’t published a follow-up volume since. Just a while ago, I decided to write the 2nd volume–this very entry that you’re reading–and officially create a tab for this blog segment on my blog’s side bar (for you to access it easily). Not to mention, I have other blog series to catch up on but for now, here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 most awesome things that happened/took place last week. Happy scrolling!

Finally! After months of not having a legit ganap (except birthday celebs), the squad is finally reunited to celebrate the Christmas season together. Our different and conflicting semestral scheds got in the way of get togethers and day outs but now that the semester is over, we say hello to the term break–which means walwal is real. We’ve been complete during the recent b’day parties but (admit it or not) nothing compares to authentic gatherings–especially those that are for no apparent reasons. Perhaps, this is the best way to end the year and to celebrate the Tropa Day (which is on the 28th).
Tagaytay is probably the best place to celebrate holidays–bet nobody will argue with that. Coffee and Bulalo are both extra special in the city (plus, the fog, cold weather and hoodies). And so, for the crew’s reunion, I suggested for the day out to be in Tags (short or Tagaytay). Plus, Tags weather is made better when you’re with the best people in town and (not to mention) it’s been a while since the Tropa last went to Tags–talk about perfect timing. Things went as planned and it couldn’t get any better. With that being said, I’m recounting everything that happened during our Year Ender. Happy scrolling!

Happy New Year! Let’s all welcome 2017 with a positive mind, leading to positive vibe which transcends to positive life (optimism, basically). 2016 is so far the best year of my life–in terms of learning, maturity and a whole lot more. I can’t grasp a single adjective or term that can fairly describe the previous year. It’s as though I hopped into a roller coaster–it’s a cliché that life is compared to a roller coaster metaphorically–that has ups and downs comprised in a single track. Blessings. Challenges. New experiences. Drama. Laughter. New people. Old friends. Family. Thank you 2016!
I’ve started this welcoming-the-new-year entry with the thought of recounting everything that happened in the previous year but looking back–checking old Facebook posts, used planners, Instagram photos and blog entries–on the past 12 months would require real effort on my part. On the contrary, I couldn’t get my thoughts to list down my hopes and plans for the new year (and besides, new year’s resolution are like promises–meant to be broken). So after days (take it literally) of thinking on what to write down below, I’ve finally come up with a quick rundown of how 2016 has been to me.

When I got into my degree (I suppose you all know that I’m taking up Secondary Education), I did not foresee the prerequisites that come along with it–lesson plans, instructional materials, Practice Teaching, etc. As I go along and interact with higher year levels, I gained insights as to how my course track looks like–it requires real hard work. Rather than backing down and losing interest due to a LOT of requirements (especially in the higher years), I fell in love more with my course and started feeling that, perhaps, I am really meant to be a teacher.
Field Study, along with the major subjects, is one of the requirements we have to accomplish before Practice Teaching. It comes in 6 subjects and I just finished the 1st of 6 courses which is The Learners’ Development and Environment. Going through the course has given me visions to my future profession and has exposed me to the classroom setting where most of the learning takes place. The subject is focused on the cognitive, biological and socio-emotional development of learners in terms of skills and environment which includes the linkage between school and home. Let’s all take a look to Field Study 1!
