Last semester, I had to take one ICT subject. To some, that’s your basic computer class in college. Now, you’d think that I don’t have to take this class anymore because of my 2 years in Computer Science back in Xavier University, and 1 Web App subject taken back in Lourdes College, plus, they even credited it in Silliman University! But noo, they still made me take this subject because the course description is not the same. Ugh. It’s all the same. So, anyway, for the first half of the semester, we had to create a music video. It was exciting…

The year is almost over and I have been negligent of this blog and the commitments I made the past quarter. Plus, I’ve taken an indefinite leave of absence here. So today, I’ll catch you up a bit on everything that’s been happening and what to expect from here on out. Going AWOL For the 3rd quarter of this year, I committed to creating content for this blog. I made one, and that was it. I never got to follow through with the other content ideas that I planned, until such time that I got completely busy preparing for a…

As I settle comfortably in this new-ish co-working space in the city, I browsed through my Twitter feed and just updated myself with the recent happenings in the lives of the people I follow there. As I went further down my feed, a name suddenly popped into my head and I typed it in the search bar. Her Twitter name popped and I clicked it, revealing her feed; a mix of recent books read and reviewed on Goodreads, a few links here and there, including her blog entries from months ago, and some thoughts on the people she used to…

It’s been a while since I last published an actual blog entry here. It’s the last month of this quarter and I have not been able to consistently create content here. There are reasons for that, which I’ll be talking about in another post. For now, I’m quite thankful that August is finally done. There were so many challenges for me throughout the entire month, that I feel like I’ve grown up a bit. (I sure do hope so!) Anyway, so just a recap of all my shenanigans last August: Week 1: August 1 – 5 I welcomed the month…

The Paint and Play Your Own Ukulele event last Saturday was a success! It was only last May that I was feeling bad about not being able to go to Dumaguete for their own event there. Little did I know, I would be organizing the same one here in Cagayan de Oro. I have to thank The New Susing’s Guitar for this opportunity. What I have, is just my love for the ukulele, and my passion to teach. They have provided me with an avenue, and I am most grateful for them. Here are some pictures from the event: The…

If I were to describe the first half of 2017 in 3 words, it would be: decisive, full of detours and changes. I started the year with this theme: Fight and focus towards finishing my music education. Early in the year, I planned to go back to my old major, which is Music Education, for the reason that it will allow me to finish my degree faster. But, towards summer it got difficult to do that because 1. I quit my teaching job, and 2. The schedule was not flexible. I’m in a different path right now, but still towards…

For the last year and 2 months, I have had the wonderful opportunity of handling kindergarten kids; in a classroom and in a one-on-one (tutorial) setting. I’ve been enjoying it greatly, and have been so invested in each child’s progress. And it gives me so much happiness and joy when I see the delight on their faces when they realize that they have learned and actually made progress with their hard work. As a teacher, that’s really one of the moments that I live for. It’s heart-warming, rewarding, and just fulfilling that I was able to do what I was supposed…

April-May Update

Last April, I have come to a decision to pursue freelance teaching. I already have experiences in tutoring, private music lessons on the piano, and also on the ukulele, and I love and enjoy doing it, so I thought it would be perfect. Goals last April, 1 Big Focus, Small Goals, Stepping out of the Comfort Zone The first thing I considered was visibility. And what came to mind was establishing an online identity, aside from my personal social media accounts. So I decided to revamp and relaunch my blog, with the intent to use it as an avenue for my portfolios…
