Oh yeah! Happy two months my dear! There’s a lot of happenings this past few weeks right? Let’s have a short wrapped up.
First is the NAT which honestly brought a lot of stress in me because I don’t know how can I manage you as my advisory class and my cooking activity with Grade 6. I can’t just leave my class due to the fact that I only meet them twice a week too that’s why Ms. Sarah and Teacher Nanette was needed to substitute for me. Though I still postponed our cooking because of that.
As time goes by, you’ll slowly figure out why it is not advisable for a subject teacher (not a Major Subject teacher) to have an advisory class, more than just a fact of not being able to meet them everyday is the incapability of take full charge on their level activities.
That falls on our second activity which is the Recollection at Bukas Loob sa Diyos at Dasmariñas, Cavite. We supposed to be the first batch on that week which is Wednesday but since it is my day for Grade 6 they moved us on the second day which is Thursday. That same goes on our field trip, it shall be scheduled on either Tuesday or Thursday. See? there’s so much to consider. But nevertheless, I don’t want to miss any single activity of you guys without me as your adviser.
Talking about our Recollection, even though I was busy at the back doing lettering of your tags on your phones, I was also listening intently to every single discussion of Ms. Sugus while my favorite part is your sharing. Yes, I already know some of your stories before but hearing them coming directly from you stings my heart. At your age, you shouldn’t have felt such things like depressions and anxiety. You are too young for those. You all have issues, but the most common are about your emotions because of some problems related to your family. It’s normal to feel pressured, unwanted and neglected but don’t settle for it. Don’t just sit on it. Stand and look for a positive outlet. Just like how Dylan cope with her situation, instead of being affected on things that she can’t control, she just focus on enriching herself and make the most of her time studying.
Guys, you are capable of that too. You are so young to stress yourself. Enjoy being a teenager. Don’t rush things. You’ll miss that phase of your life where everything is being provided still by your parents. All your obligations are just to study so make the best out of it. Unless, you want to grow up fast, work, pay your own bills and buy your own personal stuffs already, because your parents will no longer allow you to ask money from them. But of course, don’t forget to be responsible on every single decision that you will make.
The last and the most recent is the High School Integration. Did you enjoyed it? Well, it was actually pretty obvious. After that 3 days of team competitions, I hope you feel more welcomed now. But more than that, I want all of you to get inspired on how your ate’s and kuya’s take charge of younger students like you. What I want you to see from them is the sense of initiative and responsibility in lifting your teams/ each other. It’s not just about yourself now, you should learned how to help each other in both good and hard times. If there are negative things that you observed, just don’t imitate it okay? (Alam niyo na ngang mali uulitin niyo pa)
(Belated) Happy Birthday Paula! Please believe me whenever I say you’re improving. I know how “mean” or *okay, thinking of a good term* “brat” you are before (sorry for being so straightforward but that’s how I define you when I met you). You even overpowered us with your attitude. But now, you’re being more mature. You started to be more conscious and cautious on your words or on how you express yourself. You are no longer the Paula that quits every time she finds an activity hard because now I observed how you try every single task even if it takes a lot of time and patience. The Paula that’s on Darwin now is the braver but responsible one, she never stops unless she finally satisfy herself, slowly being driven excellence. You have a lot of potential especially on English Oral Communication (I actually love talking to you coz I got to exercise my English too haha). Continue that spirit and confidence Paula but remember to stay humble and low profile okay?
