I have been meaning to blog about this for more than two weeks now, even let the chance to blog about my best friend’s going away party pass up, but it’s all because I was afraid that I’d jinx it. So I decided to just wait till I get formally accepted and submit the signed contract. I am not that great in keeping secrets for a long period of time, so just imagine how much I have resisted opening my website to restrain myself from blogging. LOL
So yes, I have recently been hired at a local private school as an English teacher for seventh to eleventh year students. I am also assigned to be the library in-charge and the adviser of the school paper. It’s all too overwhelming but I guess I won’t be given such load if God doesn’t know that I can do it, right? And besides, although my employers’ goals are high, they are achievable and will really help in molding the students’ character. It’s a really great school, actually. There are like less than twenty students per class and there is only one class per level; it’s small but it’s system is transformational, and the small population makes nurturing and teaching easier. I really like it here and I love my employer, her presence makes me want to curl up in a ball next to her with a blanky and a mug of hot chocolate on a rainy day. She’s warm and very caring and I can’t imagine anyone beating her sensitivity towards her students and her employees. She’s sort of the dream mother.
I have formally started with my new job last Thursday. I didn’t do much then, not until last Friday during the subject orientations have I finally met all of my students. They were all really nice and by the looks of it, every morning is something I can look forward to.
I have to admit though that I’m still getting used with the paper works, but so far nothing is too much pressure nor too hard to do. I have a very great teaching schedule and a lot of free time to work on and cope with the things that I’ve yet finished to do. So far, I am enjoying it and I really pray to God that it will always stay this way. I have never been this contented in my entire life; it’s as if I’m satisfied with everything right now. Sure things go wrong every now and then, both at home and at work either it’s my fault or not, but generally, I’m in a better place right now than I was a couple of months back. I never thought it’s even possible to feel this way ever again but God is so kind to me and He has yet showed me how much He loves and cares for me through all these blessings.
This is an extremely great start for me and I really wish I’d manage to maintain this feeling for a very long time. This is it, I’m already considered as a real teacher and soon I shall be a professional and licensed teacher once I take and pass the licensure examination.
Wish me luck and pray for me every day. Cheers!
So after watching Iron Man 3 with hubbie a couple of weeks back, I found out that another superhero movie is coming out in the theaters again! This time though it will be everyone’s all time favorite superhero: SUPERMAN. Also known as Man of Steel. Yup another man made of iron, but probably more classic than Iron Man himself.
I was actually looking forward to watching this new film but I was not quite sure when it will come out yet. Thank God for Nuffnang and Schick!
Schick. Free Your Skin.
I just received an e-mail promo from Nuffnang and they’re giving away two (2) free tickets for the movie screening of Man of Steel this coming June 14 at the Shangri-la Cineplex. How awesome is that, right? Here’s the cool promo banner:
I highly encourage that you join their blog contest if you want to win tickets for the premiere, too! It’s actually pretty simple, just answer the question:
“If you had the powers of MAN OF STEEL for one (1) week, how would you use it?”
Well, here’s my own take on how I would use Superman’s powers:
If I remember it right from the Superman comics I’ve read when I was younger, Superman had the superhuman intelligence, superhuman breath, x-ray vision, combat skills and of course, how can anyone forget the superhuman strength and solar battery that he possessed?
Using these powers in particular would actually help me in my personal mission to help the NBI track heinous criminals and their masterminds to help eliminate crimes in our country using all of the mentioned superpowers.
With the superhuman intelligence I could easily help the authorities to track down petty criminals to big time, mafia-like chieftains, especially those who are involved so much in the drug business.
Along with it, is using the physical superpowers in defying those who would try to fight back to the authorities.
I would totally kick-ass. IF this DOES happen, I would make sure that I have my own tight and hot superhero outfit. LOL
But these superpowers should not all be used in fighting crime (and looking hot haha) but it should be also used in helping solve other issues such as using the superhuman intelligence to help scientists and doctors find cures for various diseases such as cancer, lupus, polio and AIDS/HIV.
Also, helping in assessing and assisting the children with special needs and the mentally challenged would be of great help to those who needs it for free, since assessment and caring for our physically, mentally and genetically challenged brothers and sisters costs so much. I guess the super strength would also help me train batch after batch of volunteers that would also like to help in caring for our brothers and sisters in need, as training is also pretty expensive for the volunteers.
Apart from these, I’d use my superhuman intelligence to figure out a process that would help extract solar energy from my body so that people who are not fortunate enough to have electricity would have one from my solar powers.
Last, but not the least… I’d fly all the way to Mindanao to talk to the rebels and try to make them understand that violence isn’t the only key to protect one’s land, heritage or to show off their powers. It is about the things that they can do to make their place a safer place to live.
And those are the things that I would do if I were given the powers of the Man of Steel for an entire week. I hope you’d participate in this too, I would love to read about what you can do.

Ever believed when someone tells you that what’s meant for you will be given to you? Like, maybe not now but sometime in the future…yeah, that sort of thing?
Well, my mom told me the same thing when I decided to apply for a full-time teaching job at some school a town away from where I live. She was surprisingly supportive of the idea of me trying to get a full time teaching job. It was a bit odd and shocking as not too long ago she mentioned something between the lines of “I want you to manage the resto…” and “I don’t think you need to teach–for now.” and then came the upsettypoopy thing about my part time teaching job, which I find offending and she–well, she’s just probably insensitive of the fact that teaching is what I want to do.
Then came the “I want to move out soon…” scenario which caused a rough two weeks between my mother and I. We hardly talked nor looked each other straight in the eyes. To be honest, after that, I still find talking to her a bit awkward, which is really weird because she used to be like a BFF to me, but enough of that, the point is she’s finally at ease with my decision.
My application was filled up and filed. I was asked to wait for their call about my teaching demonstration… but four days later, I still haven’t got my schedule, but I’m still trying to stay positive because the lady from the human resource office replies quickly to my inquiries. Some part of me though tells me that I should just let it go and that it happens–you know, applications being denied. But in my entire life, I have never heard of a teacher being denied of a teaching job. So I’ll probably take that a positive energy to keep me contacting the people from that school, besides one of my college best friends (the other one aside from my hubbie and Felice) works there and he said that there’s still a vacant slot for an English teacher left for the second or first grade.
I’m holding on to that. But if it’s not for me… well, I guess that’s okay. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. But, dear God! I swear I pray hard for it every day since I applied last week. I really wanted to work there but I guess if the job is not given to me…well, perhaps it would be given to someone who needs it more than I do. But I still hope that I’m that person.
There are a lot of things that I really want to do right now… but I guess I still have a long way to go and perhaps a lot of time to do all those things, one step a time.
Before I end, let me go completely off topic here. Two great blog friends of mine decided to include me in the nomination list of the Versatile Bloggers thing. Thank you so much Trish and Aian! It really surprised me that you even included me on your list despite not being too active recently. It really means a lot and it sort of pushed me to write an entry today.
Okay, so here’s the cute award banner:

That’s about it. Will blog again soon.
