i was an examiner kanina for the ateneo college guidance testing. i saw many friends na i never expected na andun rin. kakatawa kasi parang naging reunion siya for me.
as an examiner, i handled 55 students. buti na lang i had a proctor kasi ang dami nila and it was hard to go around the room everytime someone raises his/her hand.
one thing i realized though was i miss, as in realy miss, being in the classroom and being in front of students. it made me realize how much i want to teach. bakit kaya i want to teach? siguro kasi i come from a family of teachers. or siguro kasi masyado lang akong insecure and i want to have a steady supply of attention (pag nasa harap ka ba naman ng classroom, wala naman silang choice kundi pansinin ka eh!). or siguro kasi i really believe that you’ll be ale to help a LOT of people if you’re teaching. teaching kasi provides a direct link to the youth and as cliche as this sounds, the youth is the hope of the nation. basta kung ano man yung reason, i hope i get to teach sometime soon. i really hope i get to finish my thesis this sem so i can get na my masters and i can teach na next june. =)
another thing na sobrang galing na nangyari because of the testing stint was i was able to talk to denden again. denden was my first supervisor sa ateneo wellness. he was also my classmate in ateneo. he’s taking na his PhD in clinical psych and comps na lang and dissertation ang kulang.
anyway, it has been so long since we last talked and over the lunch provided by the guidance (yummy!), denden and i were able to talk. and guess what! i was able to ask him to sing for our wedding!!!! grabe! i’m so excited! he has this really, really, really amazing voice kasi (he’s part of 92 AD) and i wanted to ask him to sing na for the longest time pero nahiya ako. isa pa, he’s supposed to go back to the states in december so parang i could not impose on him to stay. but when i asked him again kanina about his estimated date of departure and he asked me why i was asking and i told him na i wanted to invite him to our wedding, he said na he’ll stay daw. yehey! and then he asked me kung kakanta raw siya! sobra akong na-excite! grabe! sabi pa nga niya kahit raw hindi ko na siya papuntahin sa reception eh basta pakantahin ko lang siya. hahaha!
i am so excited na tuloy. i’m going to contact him again soon to finalize things. saya! =)
