Diary: Bumpin' on a Rainy Day

I feel like it's my free time.

I'm burdened with a lot of school admin work to do, a lot of forms to fill out and papers to check and what the heck, why am I doing this?! I should be blogging. Lol.

I certainly need a break on the first day of the month. Hehe.

Hello July!

How was the first half of the year?

1. I'm still struggling with what classroom management style to apply to the kids.
2. I'm still having a hard time framing my lesson plans and making visual aids. But thanks to MS Publisher for making my life a bit easy in making posters and banners and lettering stuff.
3. I'm still trying to cope up with a lot of changes in my life.
4. I'm still having a hard time sleeping at night.
5. I'm still hopeful that everything will be alright.
6. I'm still praying every single day that Bee won't totally crash and leave me. I cant replace him yet.
7. I'm still working on creating a daily routine for myself.

Good thing my cousins are around. Being with them and just being inside the car on the weekends for a roadtrip is a great way to just breathe and be away from major stressors. Eventhough I am not a Catholic myself, I had came to acquire my cousins' fascination with old churches, and our latest trip brought us to Liliw, Laguna--the famous Red Brick Church.
Lol. Di pa ako marunong, bago ang lens ni Macky at first time ko magamit dito kaya labo-labo pa.

The heavy rains wasn't able to stop up from going down south. 

Destination: Liliw, Laguna.

There are also giant shoes and sandals every where!


Not just for your foot, but for your entire body as well! 



But this name of a store really caught my attention:


The town would have been a great heritage place to visit. There are still houses made of tisa and other hispanic era edifices.This place surely had very rich history and culture.

Our Laguna trip is not complete without our favorite Kinulob na Itik :)


Last stop was at Sampaloc Lake, but due to the heavy downpour, our planned picnic was cancelled. But we went there anyway. Stopped for probably 30 minutes, then headed back to Manila.

  5. May similiarity ang first part nitong post mo sa post ni Archieviner, the first half of the year! Nag-usap ba kayo? hahaha May checklist din sya eh.

    Hmmm been to Liliw, pero parang wala akong nakitang malalaking sandals na yan, siguro ginagawa pa lang

    Nakapunta na rin ako sa Lake na yan pero saglit lang din kaya di masyadong nag "sink in" kaya di ko maalala kung maganda ba o sakto lang hahaha

    Travel travel din ah!

  8. Teacher ka pala eh di follower mo na ako. Hindi ko alam kung may samahan ba ng mga teachers that write or post blogs. Gusto kong makisali so I will learn from all of them including you. Ganda pala sa Liliw, mapasyalan nga. Pareho tayo, kapag stress, layas lungs!

    1. Salamat :D first year of teaching ko this year! I am in contract to teach for two years and hopefully, until I retire with great stories and amazing impact on every child. Ambitious as it may seem, pero yun tlga ang dahilan ko kung bakit ako nagturo.

      Yes.. kapag stress, go lang kung san-san :D

      May mga pina-follow akong mga teacher blogs based from US and UK sila, dito sa pinas, si teacher mots, si teacher afterthoughts at ikaw :) hehehe
