call me cheesy, i don't care :)

I've been pondering for the longest time, thinking of how and what to write in this entry. It's not that I have nothing to say. It's actually quite the opposite. I have SO MUCH in me right now, I feel I'm about to explode. Okay so after staring at the blinking cursor for God knows how long, am I finally ready for this? I think I am. Are you? Okay, here we go.

It still hasn't sunk in that the schoolyear 05-06 is finally over. I'm actually scared of the day I realize that, seeing that now that it hasn't really sunk in yet, I'm already feeling all kinds of sadness.

Okay, I will definitely remember March 31, 2006. I never expected anything like that to happen. As in ever.

A special shout out to III-Kamalayan 05-06

Ladies, I know I couldn't find the words to thank you a while ago. I was just so overwhelmed by what you guys did. Cliche as it may seem, but it's true that words cannot express how grateful I am for you. I can try, though :) So here goes:

You cannot believe my amazement and appreciation for what you guys did for me. So that's what I'd look like as a blonde... Haha :) I appreciate each and everyone's paper crane and wish. I appreciate the "surprise" :) (You guys are sneeaaakkyyyy!! Haha :P) I appreciate the laughter that we all shared. I appreciate the fact that you chose to stay despite the fact that the pep rally was starting in five minutes. I appreciate each and every hug that I shared with you. I appreciate the huge group hug wherein we all got smoooshed (but I could've cared less!) I appreciate the tears that we all shed awhile ago. Those tears won't be in vain, I promise. We'll still see each other, ladies. I'm sure of that :)

I hoped it would never end, but alas it had to. I cannot express enough my gratitude having you as my first advisory class. I know things became kind of rocky for some time, but seeing ourselves all together for the very last time in that little classroom we called our home for a while, it all ended up worth everything. Thank you so much, ladies, from the bottom of my heart. I love you :)


To all my students, I appreciate everything! I honestly wished that the day (or should I say the schoolyear? Hehe) would never end. All the gifts, the hugs, the well-wishes were all very much appreciated. I will keep them with me always :) I wish I could keep you all there with me, too, so we could all be together, hanging out, having fun, and of course learning at the same time. From each other of course :) I've learned so much from you guys, as much as I hope you've learned from me, too :) You made this year such an amaaaazing year. Nothing can compare to it, really.

I dread going back to school on Monday and finding the school empty. It's going to be so weeiiirrrddd... :/ *sigh*

I still have so much to say, but again, I fear that words will not be able to contain the overwhelming greatness of emotion I am feeling right now.

*HUG* - just let this say what I feel :)

Once again, my dear ladies, thank you. The schoolyear is finally over, but I hope the memories and lessons that we learned, taught, and shared won't ever be :)

by the way
it has recently come to my attention that students actually read this little blog of mine. (*sings* ... i'm gonna make it shine. Oops sorry I couldn't help it :P)

I have just one question, though...

Why don't you guys comment?! Haha :) and why didn't you mention it to me? :) Anyway, feel free to make your presence felt. I would appreciate it. :)

Oh and also, just a disclaimer. This is NOT formal writing, so please allow me to use contractions :P

bittersweet

Last day of teaching today for SY 2005-2006. I don't think it's sunk in yet.

I'm glad, however, that we patched things up in the batch. At least I hope we did. :) Mwah! I love you juniors :) Whatever negative things have been conceived about you, just remember: PROVE.THEM.WRONG.

Now something strange happened, though. Okay, so before I left each class, I gave them a little message of thanks for making the schoolyear a memorable one (of course, in a good way.) However, when I reached my last class, I failed to do so. Or at least, I didn't elaborate as much as I did with the other classes. And this was the class that I actually had the most strange and most extreme and interesting experience with. Why? This was the class where I first got mad (as in really mad.. I actually walked out.) And for a while, things kind of became awkward. I had a feeling they didn't want me there anymore. But as time passed (as it inevitably does,) things changed. We started to really have fun. Especially during our English Week practices and literature sessions. I eventually loved teaching their class so much, too. And demmit, I never got a chance to tell them properly!

So, if by any chance, you, my dear reader, come from II-Biyaya (or know anyone from there), please tell your classmates I had a wooonderful time teaching your class, too. It was very interesting, my experience with you guys :) Thank you! :)

Okaaay... Now I still have four days more to go with my girls. I wonder what Friday's going to be like. I'm new at everything in this teaching business, and I've learned a lot. Now, I'm going to have to learn about the letting go part. Oooh, that was cheesy. Cheesy, but true. <-- Ooh, that's even cheesier.

Oh well, I am just going to savor these last few days with them. Especially with the juniors, since I know for a fact that I won't be teaching them anymore next year :(

As for the sophomores, if I'm still in school next year, I'll most probably be handling them again. That's good news for me :) I've really grown to love their batch, too. I don't know if they feel the same way, though. Hehe. But I hope they do.

Okay, I've been babbling on for much too long now. I think I'm in a state of something I cannot put my finger on. It's still just so unbelievable that it's actually been a year already. I cannot understand what I'm feeling right now.

And so, I stop here.

O, i am slain...

My dear ladies, for the love of grace,
Lay not that flattering unction to your soul
That not your procrastination but my wrongdoing is reason.

Honestly, I was really hurt by what happened.

"Miss, two weeks lang po ang binigay samin ni miss para gawin yung term paper..."

Are you serious? ARE.YOU.FOR.REAL??? And that's just one of the many unbelievable lines I heard. I swear I almost lost it a while ago.

Please ladies, I love you. I really do. But please think before you say or do things. Don't say just anything just to save your backs.

Ang cool ng black-eyed peas noh?

I'm not a fan of theirs, but there's just something about them that makes me look and listen whenever their videos are shown on T.V.

They're just... cool. I can't think of any other word to describe them. (And of any other thing to write about, obviously.)

Errr... yeah. That's it.

*smile*
