A student called me just that literally five minutes ago. So... I'm basking in! Hehe!
Here I am typing this blog from the library in Ateneo. And it feels kind of different that I'm here not because I have something to study or there's a requirement to finish. Uh-huh, uh-huh! I have crossed the other side, baby!
People (and by people, I mean the two people who read my blog. Haha! :p), I have resigned from my work as a grade school teacher and am now teaching in the collegiate level. Why? 'cause I'm a poser like that! Haha!
I'm having a great time, so far! Ateneo feels kind of more special now that I'm already a teacher here compared to when I was student. I could think of a psychological explanation for that, but I am too lazy right now.
I actually also teach in La Salle, yeah, the rival school. Why? 'cause I'm also impartial like that. Hehe! Truth be told, I just need money. Hehe!
I don't want to be too sentimental about this career shift that I did because I have other stuff to think about. But when I try to concentrate and take it all in, I feel so blessed that another dream has come true. Back in 2002, I was a college freshman and thought of semi-wanting to be like my professors. But since I had other plans in mind (pre-school teacher was one), plus the fact that I didn't know a lot back then (not that I'm saying that I know A LOT now, alright?!) and didn't deem myself worthy, that professor-plan took a back seat.
Until I was almost done with my Master's. HEY! I am through with my MA! Would you believe that?! This blog formed a life with all my rants and angst about grad school! Haha! Wow, I can't believe I haven't made an official announcement about that! Not that it matters AT ALL, but still! :p
So anyway, here I am now. Not that I ever doubted it, but God must really love me. :) I'm still adjusting with EVERYTHING (Adjustment #1: the drive to Manila is insane, you gotta hate it), but happily learning all that I can from this dream-like experience. And enjoying all those remarks about how I still look like a student! Hahaha!
That's it - I'm ending this blog entry with that vain thought so it will linger on you (and you'll be disgusted, haha!)!
