22 Facts About Me (So Narcissistic)!



Since it's my birthday week this week, maybe it is time for me to share some part of me to you, my dear readers! I will be sharing some 22 facts about me. Prepare to be bored? Amazed? I do not know. You decide. This is the listicle that you did not ask. Lol.

1. I was born prematurely. My Mom was supposed to have her labor in May 1996, but I came early. I was born on March 28, 1996, at precisely 3:15 AM.

2. About the previous fact, I was also incubated for weeks because I was bitten by a rat because I looked like raw meat when I was young. I was also so little. I was like an 8 oz Coca-cola bottle.

3. My name (Jitty) was derived from a news anchor from a random country. That was my Mom said. I did not even bother to double-check. Lol.

4. I had kindergarten twice. In the first take of kindergarten (which took place in the city), I was 3rd place in class. I was able to take Grade 1 subjects for some few months. When my Mom decided to transfer our home again, I retook kindergarten classes in the city. It is because my Mom wanted to me be on a special Science program in the elementary school.

5. I was once considered myself as a math wizard. Charot!

6. I really wanted to become like a computer engineer before, like my biological father. But things happened.

7. I took mass communication because I want to avenge myself from the radio broadcasting judge that I had in high school.

8. I took Diploma in Professional Education because I am pabida person.

9. I never expected that I will become a teacher. Right after my partner and I finished our thesis, I looked for some marketing work, but to no avail. Then teaching work came by, so I grabbed the opportunity!

10. I did not know that UP Cebu exists until 4th-year high school. That was when I submitted my application for UPCAT.

11. Some people consider me annoying. It's true. But one incident changed me. I am not ready to share it.

12. One of my dreams is to become a school paper adviser. It came true when I handled CTU - Barili's student publication.

13. I love Big Bang Theory!

14. My Globe number is 12 years old! I bought it on November 1, 2006. :)

15. I do not really have a lot of friends. But I am okay with it.

16. Some people think that I am extrovert. I consider myself an ambivert. I also have some low points in my life.

17. I had two girlfriends in my life. It is awkward sometimes when my ex and I meet in the school's hallway.

18. I have a boyfriend of 4 years. I love him so much.

19. I was a consistent honor student since kindergarten. Humblebrag!

20. I am also a very competitive person.

21. I really wanted that Best in Religion award in elementary.

22. I hope that this year will be better!

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…

Educational Technology: A Friend or A Foe?

With the advent of technology today, I cannot help but wonder what will happen to me if these technologies did not exist. Whether it may be mobile devices or the internet, it has made our lives easier, faster, and more convenient. We can easily communicate with our loved ones no matter where they are located in the globe. We can now do errands quicker and cheaper.
In the general sense, technology has given us more free time than our ancestors. The time that they used in handwriting their letters, we can spend it to more worthwhile activities as we did not devote most of our time on this tedious task thanks to computer's word processing software. We can now quickly look for information on the internet in just a snap of a finger. Unlike our grandparents, they need to stay in the library for hours just to watch for the information that they need. To state the obvious, we are just so goddamn lucky.
As a teacher, I really thank the invention of computers and the internet. We can now qui…
