Two weeks more and it will be my birthday. I’ll be turning twenty-nine this year and I feel a little old. Wow! How time flies swiftly! Thank you Lord for the abundant blessings You always provide me!
Anything special today? Well, I came home at 5-ish p.m. I had to wait for a friend to finish her work so I she can accompany me to the department store to get some stuff for the International Day tomorrow. I’ve been feeling feverish since this afternoon and I still have this terrible headache and I know that I should be sleeping however I haven’t showered yet.
Also, I deactivated my Facebook account. It’s nothing new. Haha. I’ve been doing this very often that I wouldn’t be surprised if one day Mark Zuckerberg will email me saying I am banned to use Facebook forever. As I actually come to think of it, are there other people who are on and off on that site? I mean like me, deactivating whenever I want. I am aware that I should be in Facebook for communication’s sake especially with the people at church but I don’t want to be in Facebook these days. I am too busy and I get a headache every single time I scroll up and down on the News Feed section. So many updates from people! Even if I want to say something about my life or my day, I’d stop for a moment and think if it’s worth sharing. If it’s just something I thought about that is only beneficial to me then I just keep it. I don’t want to the countless updates my friends are already getting from other “friends.”
I tested my students knowledge on Chapter 18 Yearbook in our journalism class today and many of them complained that it was difficult. Unbelievable! We spent two weeks on that chapter and I announced the test a week ago and still they didn’t find time to study! Wow! Whatever. What is done is done! I cannot be giving any retest especially for something that was announced long time ago. It’s my second chapter test with them and many of them are still trying to figure out my tactics in giving tests. Well, chapter tests are easier compared to exams. It’s supposed to be easy anyway because it’s just a combination of everything that they have already studied and have been tested for the past quarter. Ha! You want to hear something funny? On my birthday which is the 17th of this month, the school scheduled for us to submit the exam papers and TOS. Just fantastic, right? I better start preparing exams.
Anything good I did today? I helped out a student write an apology letter to his teacher. He’s in my homeroom class and I’m his adviser so I felt responsible somehow for him that’s why I helped. I felt like a mom to him. Well, that’s how it actually works in school set-up. Teachers are always expected to be students’ second parents.
Well, it’s really late. I better get going. Hmmm. Wait, how about if I keep my phone for two weeks, too? I’ve been so phone dependent that I feel like I need a break. I can Skype once in a while but no Line and iMessages? How about Instagram or Instamag? Or WordPress on mobile? No camera? I have so many appointments lined up this month. Wait, maybe I can discipline myself from using on weekdays and then on weekends especially on Sunday I can use it since it’s my hospital day and photo shoot days with my students. Sounds reasonable, right? Alright! Let this phone challenge begin…3, 2, 1. Off!
Good night everyone! I will see you tomorrow! God bless and keep the faith in our Father, Lord Almighty, burning!
