7 – LUCRESIA KASILAG ❤💕☝

Powerrrrr!!!☝ LK!!!!!😂 Babies!😘

LK, SARANGHAE! 😘💕💜❤😍

That was our first (informal) class picture, taken last August 25, 2017. Unfortunately, three of them were absent during thay day. These students were my third advisory class since I started teaching. And it has been my tradition *sort of* to have a picture with them, taken with a polaroid or an instax camera so that I can keep it and bring it everyday. I put the polaroid film at the back of my ID so that I can always see it. 💜💕

See our hands? We did the LK sign using our fingers. Did you see me? 😂 Hahaha I blended well with their heights or I just became too obvious because I’m short. 

Usually, I always want to call their section’s name ‘LK’ for no reason. I just feel assured that they were there, with me, listening to me, especially when they respond to me. Except when they’re too noisy. 

Being their new *and sudden* class adviser was a challenge to me, not because I was a new teacher in school but because I was afraid that they won’t like me and won’t accept me as their new teacher. I don’t want to repeat the past wherein the students and I were not able to adjust with one another. With this reason, I promised myself that I will love them and take care of them, hoping that it would be reciprocated. 

I know they still miss their previous adviser, and I know more how she feels, I understand how hard it is to leave your dear students, it was like a heartbreak. I’ve experienced it too. Last school year, I was torned between my needs and wants. I need to transfer to another school but I also wanted to be with my students. But in the end, I chose my needs and ended up being separated to them. Until now, I still wonder how they’ve been doing, if they’re missing me and thinking of me too.

I’ve chosen a *slightly* different path now and I know that I’ll be happy with them. *LK and the other sections*. I just hope that I can also become one of the plenty of reasons why why students smile. 😊💕

I’ll live up in the present, prepare for the future, and look back in the past but won’t dwell in it.
LK, SARANGHAE! 😘💕💜❤😍 

Hahaha apir sa makakabasa nito. 😂😊☝

I LOVE 5-PIETY

ETO YUNG SAGOT SA TANONG NG NESCAFE COMMERCIAL DATI NA

‘PARA SAAN KA BUMABANGON?’

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I love these children so much. They have become my inspiration and motivation to wake up everyday and pursue my dream of being a teacher. My class experienced the ups and downs of being a teacher and a student, and I can say that those moments made our relationship and bond even stronger. I know I am not a perfect teacher, there are no perfect students, and there is no thing such as a perfect class, but as long as we are happy in each other’s presence, our everyday meeting would surely be wonderful.

5-Piety is my second batch of advisory class and my love for them has grown deeper, so deep that I don’t think if I would still be able to let them go and part ways with them this coming March. Thinking about the old good days that my students and I have shared, it really breaks my heart. I can’t imagine how I could say goodbye to them, not knowing if I could ever teach them again. I would really miss how we laughed and played during discussion, how I scold their naughty and playful classmates, I would surely miss the sound of our clanging spoon and forks and brisk laughter, the warm hugs they give me and the sweet ‘sorry’ and ‘i love you’ that they whisper to my ears.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

If only I could make time stop and spend it with them longer, if only I could, I would. I love you 5-Piety, you really made me happy, I don’t want to say goodbye, I can’t say hello to March yet, I don’t want to let go. I will miss you when you grow up. Let’s not forget each other and keep the strings attached to our hearts.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I LOVE YOU, 5-PIETY. IF ANY ONE OF YOU IS READING THIS, I’M TELLING YOU, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART (AND HYPOTHALAMUS).

LRMS ANNUAL RETREAT 2016

The Annual Retreat of all the employees of Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila School was held at St. Michael’s Retreat House in Antipolo from October 26 to 28.

This year’s retreat was focused more on diad and group sharing. The retreat master, Father Ador(able), wanted us to name our Stresses, Ill Feelings, and Attachments. While talking to my partner, I learned that that person also experiences and feels my situation, we almost had the same thoughts. There were things that cleared my mind and answered my questions, but I realized that even more questions occupied my thoughts now.

I came to a realization that I should not give up on the things I love and those that I wanted to do. But there’s something that’s hindering me from doing that – fear. Fear that I know where it’s coming but I don’t want to admit.

Thanks to the people I’ve talked to. I just really need someone to air out my thoughts that’s been buried for a long time.

I hope that we find our happiness and let go of the attachments that causes us stress and ill feelings. I also hope that this kind of sharing won’t be the last for us.

WHERE IS SHE?

WHERE IS SHE?

That’s Banelia and me during our Research study, it’s been half a year since we last saw each other.

Sa Tapat ng Room 218

I stand here all alone, waiting for someone whom I don’t know. Not recognizing the face even a bit, still I smiled and waved my hand. Although disappointed by the thought of being ignored, I still assumed that we’re close. So here I stand, still alone, waiting for that stranger to even glance at me.

Nakatayo lang ako sa tapat ng faculty room ng College of Science at hinihintay kong dumating yung isang professor na kailangan ko para pumirma dun sa papeles na pinapaasikaso sakin ng amo ko. Nakaharap ako sa Green Park pero kita ko pa rin yung mga Engineering students na nagkakantahan dun sa may COE Park. Balak yata nilang mangaroling kasi puro kantang pampasko yung kinakanta nila. Tapos napatingin ako dun sa isang pamilyar na mukha, gusto ko sanang kumaway kaya lang baka hindi na nya ako naaalala. Isa sya sa mga taong nag-attempt na maging bahagi ng Philippine Science Consortium Student Chapter sa Morong Campus na kung saan ay naroon din ako. Nakatingin yata sya sa direksyon ko kaya ngumiti ako, pero mukhang hindi nya nakita yun kasi tumungo agad sya tapos kinausap na yung katabi nya. Nakakalungkot isipin na kahit kilala ko na sa mukha at pangalan ang isang tao ay nawawalan pa rin ako ng lakas ng loob na batiin sya o magpakilala ulit at ipaalala na minsan na kaming nakapag-usap. Natatakot kasi akong mapahiya dahil hindi ako papansinin o sabihan ako ng kung anu-anong hindi maganda sa pandinig.
