The Start of Something Not Really That New


Maybe this year, I will be able to fulfill this promise. Maybe. Just maybe.

Some people say that I am a quitter, and yes, I cannot just argue because it is true. I have joined a lot of organizations way back in college, then I just leave when I want to. Various reasons arose in my mind when I quit. I was busy doing some paper works on a subject. I did not also feel that I belong to the organization. I could not keep up with the activities of the group to the point that it makes me feel terribly sick. I know it is just wrong to keep the people hanging, but what should I do? I was young, wild, and free. I did not understand the consequences of the things that I have done to my future.

Last year, I started a blog named Yanong Bisdak. Some people said that it is just a rip off to my boyfriend's blog Basta Bisaya. Maybe? As a writer, I am still finding my place in the writing scene. I even do not know what to write. In fact, I still do not know how to write well. I admit that I am not really an innate writer. I just developed my love of writing as the time went by.

Maybe, I am writing because I have nowhere to go to? To be honest, I just do not know the answer. I know that I am not a very good writer, but they say that if I keep on writing, it will really improve my craft. Also, I am teaching a writing class this year. It is just right for my students to see their teacher writing. I can be an inspiration to them as they do their writing assignments in our class. I could also learn from them and write our experiences on this blog.

This year, I will do my best to complete my unfinished task. I will make my younger self-proud by publishing content on this blog. Aside from the fact that I will not be paying P500 in the culminating activity, I believe that it will be just so satisfying to see your blog having a lot of content. I may be a neophyte blogger, but I know that I can do better this year.

I just also want to emphasize that the future contents of this blog shall not and will not reflect the views and opinions of the institutions that I belong. I am planning to write anything and everything under the sun. It may be my random rants and ideas about certain things, but you know, that is the point of a blog, isn't it? I am tired of being a lifestyle blogger (as if naman) last year. Maybe I am not just fit for being that kind of writer. I will write what I want. As cliche as it may sound, but I want to write to express, and not to impress. I have been teaching students this concept yet I am not practicing it myself, so let me correct my wrongdoings.

I just want to be as informal as possible. Please do not expect some formal writings on this blog. I will do my best to express here. Lol.

So yeah, please be a lamb and help me complete this 52-week challenge! Let's finish this challenge together! :)

A Love Letter That'll Last Forever

(This letter was submitted to Marco Polo's Love Letter Writing Contest this year. It did not win, but I just want to share what I have written. Enjoy!)

Oh Romeo, akong Romeo,
Ang gugma dili muhukom kung kinsa ang duyugan sa pagbati sa usa ka tawo.
Wala naman lang gyud nako damha nga kitang duha magkadayon. Tinuod man gyud diay nga mupana na lamang si Kupido sa atoa. Makapamalikas na man lang ta og ahat kay dili ko andam sa panghitabo kaniadto. Kinsa ra man gud ko? Usa ra man ko ka pakyas nga mambabalak nga nangayo sa imong atensyon kaniadto. Daw langit ug yuta ang atong gintang sa usa'g usa kaniadto. Linghod ang akong panghuna-huna. Ang imuha kay hamtong. Aduna ka'y plano sa imong kaugmaon. Eskwela ug pagduwa ang adlaw-adlaw kong pagabuhaton. Apan kaniadtong naabot ka sa akong kinabuhi, daw nausab ang tanan. Nabutangan og kahulogan ang akong kinabuhi.
Pila na ka tuig naman sad diay ang nilabay. Upat na ka tuig tang miduyog sa musika sa atong gugma. Matod pa nil…

The (Filipino) Teachers' Story

(The views and opinions expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the institution that I am connected with. The accounts presented in this article is based on my co-teachers' perspective.)
Teaching is said to be the noblest profession, they say. All other jobs will not exist without the help of these unsung heroes.
They work day and night just to make sure that their pupils (for elementary learners) and students (for secondary and tertiary learners) will be able to get some new information during their classes. Visual aids need to be made. Lesson plans need to be written. Books that need to be read. All these things just pile on the desk of a teacher every night, which lessens their time with their own families.
Aside from the hectic teaching schedule, they also need to do a LOT (emphasis again on LOT) of other unrelated teaching activities. They need to follow their principal's directives. They need to clean their rooms so that the evaluato…
