I am indeed overwhelmed as I received a bomb of “Happy Teachers’ Day” greetings from my students, friends, and co-teachers today.
I remember back when I was in first grade, our teacher asked us to draw whatever we would want to be when we grow up…and guess what? I draw myself as a teacher. But as years went by, I had this feeling of regret as to what I decided to draw, as well as be, back then. This was because I learned how difficult the teaching profession is with the nonstop talking, disciplining [of] students, preparing lessons and computing grades. I certainly do not want a routinary job like this, I thought. I want exciting jobs like being a journalist, novelist, print model, keyboardist in a band, or … believe me or not, a Kpop star! Teaching would be the last job on the list for me.
But bibidibabidiboo! Two months after graduating in college, I was welcomed to the teaching profession. At 20, I am now the youngest college professor in our school; now would y’all look at that? Haha! And for the past 5 months of being a ‘madam,’ I must say that I am enjoying it! I treat my job as a challenge since a lot of students are not comfortable with my subject: English, I have to pull a lot of tricks in my sleeves for them to learn and enjoy the subject. Moreso, through teaching, I think I gained a lot of new friends in the form of my students…well, since our age gap isn’t that far. It’s nice to know that they respect me as a teacher and are fond of me just as they would be to a friend. =)
I don’t know how long I’ll be in this profession but as someone who lives in the moment, I myself know that I am having a good time. Though I am still holding on to my ‘other dreams,’ especially the Kpop star one. Haha! Until this day, I can say that I have imparted new knowledge, ‘saved bad kids,’ inspired students [in their studies and in…hmm, you know what I mean.lol] and in the process, learned a lot too.
To all the teachers out there, HAPPY TEACHERS’ DAY. Remember that the world will remain ignorant if it weren’t for us.
CNBLUE rocked the Philippines last June 15 during their Blue Moon Concert Tour held in the Araneta Coliseum.
I’ve been admiring these guys and their music since their debut in the KPOP scene that’s why I knew ALL the songs they played in the concert. Haha.
Seeing them in the flesh and listening to their live performance was truly a dream come true for me. Being in the same place with CNBLUE was just so so surreal!!! They were indeed naturally good-looking young men with undeniable talent. And Yonghwa .. why did you mention Singapore instead of Philippines huh? Mistaaake~ LOL. No worries, we Boices still cheered you on despite of that. We love you. I love you. Woah~ yeyeah! Listening to your singing voice and funny adlibs was.. hey, can someone just pinch me?
Jonghyun was a silent-type, but every minute he plays his electric guitar.. woah.. AWESOME! He’s a god!
Jungshin was the funniest one, and displayed his humorous antics which made me really laugh out loud. And man, he’s really TALL.
Minhyuk was so cute during his spiels while he was sitting behind his drums at the back portion of the stage but his drum playing was unquestionable as well as his famous drumstick twirling act.
Thank God the sound system was DAEBAK and I was able to hear CNBLUE’s flawless and crisp notes. They never missed a note, except Yonghwa’s voice cracking. Hihi. I was right that the boys of CNBLUE are not just pretty boys, they are superb instrumentalists and vocalists.
From now on, June 15 won’t be just an ordinary date in my calendar. Just like my love Yonghwa, I will never forget that night for it was very special. I will be looking forward to meeting CNBLUE again. ;)
