16 Aug

Today, I’ve attended free IELTS orientation. Only three students came this morning, including myself. 😳 Our teacher was Sir Daryl and he has a good British Accent even though he was a pure-born Filipino who grew up in Tondo, Manila. He will be one of my coaches on my intensive review this coming Friday. I’m getting nervous already!!! Haha. Hoping I could survive this review! 
I’m so esctatic to be a student again πŸ“š I love to learn more while I’m young. I’m excited to share all my learnings here.
Goodnight, friends! I had a hectic schedule today, from my class at Santolan, to UERM Hospital for Papa’s check-up, then to supermarket and bought some grocery supplies, and finally we went home!! *relax and journal time. Yay!! ☺️ In addition, I felt relieved that my dad’s histopath results was benign. Thank you Lord!! πŸ’•
Always be grateful 🌷

693 – first day of class

15 Aug

On my first day I’m almost late. Wow, self. Hehe, Luckily, I still have a sit left and the class didn’t started yet. I was embarrassed as I entered the room. I sat on the corner, front row. Beside me was Imelda Gonzales, *same surname with me omo! maybe we’re relatives because she came from bulacan too..hmmm*. She was in her mid-thirties or forties already. After awhile, one woman came and sat next to Imelda’s. She was Dana. She was 27 years young and we’re on the same boat. We’re both having no direction phase at all. No definite target country to work at as of the moment. I will just focus for now on my review to get my target band scores. So help us God ❀

 

I enjoyed our today’s lesson on Content Speaking with teacher Nadine. She’s a cool teacher that I forgot to yawn in her class. Cheers to my sleepy self for not napping during her class. Hehe. By the way, I’ve created a playlist on my Youtube Channel where I will upload my progress in speaking the English language. It’s not a public playlist because I’m shyyyyyyy to do so. I’ve uploaded it in Unlisted mode. Hehe. I do hope to post everyday on my Youtube channel, same as I post here as I practice my writing too.

 

Goodnight! Thank you dearest Lord ❀

 

Always be grateful ❀

BTS won’t let me sleep soundly because they dropped another poster again for all ARMYs in the world!!!! Save my precious heart, oh Gosh! I’m not watching any K-DRAMA series lately. I just kept myself updated with all ARMYs, BTS and Bighit posts most of the time. It’s weekend but I’m just in my own cave updating my blogs and sketching some drawings. *I’m very sorry if I lack sincerity to some of my blog post for the sake of “mema-post lang” HUHU. I’m guilty. I’m sorry. I’m just that lazy and also my left wrist was not cooperating well with me. I’m quite battling too with my sadness and moodiness because of my post-menstruation phase that just ended the other day. Nuff reasons, self!!!

 

So here, I’m emo again with their heartbreaking posters again. I’ve fallen deeply in love with these angels.

 

 

 

I’m so grateful to BTS, Bighit and the teams behind this concept, LOVE YOURSELF.

 

Always be grateful ❀

676 – Teacher πŸ“š

29 Jul

Yes, you are poor but you can dream and work hard. You can get out from that cell that stopping you not to grow or change your life. You have to make a stand. It’s a hard battle and rough path. You gotta be strong. Have faith that your circle will support you in time, the least you expect it. You gotta experience being down before you taste real success. All of these down moments, these will all mold you up. Only way up, and forward to success. No matter how educated or successful you’ll be. Don’t forget your roots. Don’t ever belittle anybody. Nobody has the right to belittle any single human being in this universe. Stay humble. Live gratefully and with grace. Workhard to grow and to never stop learning in this life. I support Education, as equal as I give importance to our Health. 

Learning. Reflections.

I’ve watched today’s episode of #MMKPrideandJoy and Brigada. Both of them shared how essential Education is. I’m very grateful in my life that I’ve gave importance on my studies before anything else, like being in a relationship – for example. My parents really worked hard so I must pay what they deserve. It’s okay to get tired and tired while studying, but you must never ever give up your Education, dears. Education is a gold investment that your parents sacrificed everything for you to get one! 
I got really teary-eyed, when the Father doesn’t support his Son’s dream to be a teacher at first, but then, the father knew the story of his son’s hardwork and how he was belittle by his Auntie (Father side). His father gone mad with his sister. His Father just became proud of his son. Oh, men were not so vocal, but they’re really love and protecting each other. Given fact that your family will always be your source of strength. Strength, to push you towards your goal coz its really fulfilling that your family support you. Huhu. Teacher Roy, Thank you for sharing your inspiring story! #MMKPrideandJoy πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

From Brigada, I was awakened again to my dream to teach kids passionately 😒 Miss Celine was a teacher in Laguna. She was a bookworm ever since. She has a daughter who got influenced too from Technologies but now grown to love books after Celine read a book everyday for her daughter. Celine got motivated to teach other kids during summer season, and since school has started, she has session every Saturday for them. “Kwentuhan sa Wawa.” As I remember the name of her project. She can alot her time, effort, and money just to teach and serve kids. She wanted all kids to learn how to read thru her simple movement. *very inspiring, Teacher Celine!! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Two of the episodes I watched today were Teachers. Real talk: I’ve wanted to become a teacher too. Passionate teacher such as Miss Sabrina OngKiko. 

To love and to serve the public. Every student deserves a good teacher. 

β€” Sabrina Ongkiko 

I’m very grateful today: I chose to alot time for my family and friends! Catch-up, done!

Thank you Lord!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Goodnight! 

Always be grateful 🌷

674 – Chasing one of my dream destination |01|πŸ‡°πŸ‡·

27 Jul

I don’t know why I got a sudden jolt of joy and excitement as I heard BTS will have their comeback on September!!!!!! Huhu! As an international ARMY, I wanted to watch you perform live and give you special gift/letter personally!!! I really want to personally thank each and everyone of you for helping me cope with sadness and homesickness while I was in Saudi Arabia!!! Just by watching you from afar, you gave me extreme ride of emotion and intense energy through your music. 

I love to go to South Korea ever since I was a student. The first movie that I watch was My Sassy Girl, I love the couple and their theme song “I believe”, too much emotions!! The time capsule, the tree, their memories. Ughhh ❀️. The first series that I watched was Endless Love : Jenny and Johnny’s lovestory.  Then many more series followed up until this year. I love to see their famous K-drama locations most. esp, Namsan Tower, Nami Island, Petit France, Busan, MyeongDong, Bok Joo’s restaurant, Sunny’s Restaurant, Goblin’s House, Heo Joon Jae’s House, Love in the moonlight set, and Scarlet Heart Ryeo set. And many many more. I want to try famous Korean Foods too and shop for cute stuffs, clothes, dress, shoes, and beauty products!!! 

I watched VLOGs at Youtube on how to get Korean Visa at Korean Embassy (DIY style) and I searched blogs too. Thank you so much for posting everything online, Kabayan! So, I prepared my requirements two days ago, then wrote an explanation letter at 0100H in the morning. Due to heavy rain brought by typhoon “Gorio”, I did not push myself to get out of my bed to go to Korean Embassy today. I slept 0430H to finish my handwritten explanation letter. I’ve explain that my certificate of employment was incomplete based from their requirements. Praying that they will accept it and give me Korean Visa.  

I don’t know why the rain was nonstop all day. 

Then. . . 

I woke up from an another news about BTS’ final leg of wings tour concert in Korea on December!!!!!! As in, OmO!!! I want to go 😭

Now. .

I’m back to questioning again my dearest self on when to travel to South Korea!?? September or December!??? 

I’ve spent 465 Php for processing my documents. 

  • Bank clearance – 100php
  • Bank statement – 100php
  • ITR as an OFW – 100php
  • Brgy. Clearance – 50php
  • Documentary stamp – 15php
  • Picture for Visa (6pcs) – 100php 

I searched flights and accomodations already. Slight expensive for this September. But more expensive on December!! I really want to go as soon as possible before I start to review and focus for IELTS exam in PH. I’m praying for my visa to be granted if I applied this week/next week as a big reward for myself this year. I hope my dad will approve too, for me to have a solo travel in South Korea as a tourist. I’m not that afraid anymore to be alone because I knew some of the basic Korean more than before. Then, if there’s a chance, I will go back again on December!!!!! 🀞🏽 visa granted and approved, please!!!! πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

Goodnight! *thank God I finished updating my blog and journal πŸ’

Always be grateful 🌷

Love,

Nj
