Feels so great to be back on the mat.

Lately, I have been waking up at 2am for no apparent reason. My body clock is just screwed up. I pass out at random hours during the day or the afternoon or the evening. And at 2:00am, I sure do wake up.

And then recently, I haven't been functioning well, mentally. I feel so bored. I feel like all I do is study English grammar lessons, Spanish grammar lessons, and I haven't even started reading on Computerized Based Assessments, of which I have to do soon because I have a presentation this month about it.

I felt that I was so bored and people whom I talk to are boring me. August is a ghost month for all, but seems like this "ghosting" is starting to get into me. I'm so bored. I'm boring. I'm annoying the hell out of people because of my boredom.

My yoga studio is no longer as easily accessible to me now. But I really want to get back to my yoga. I know the benefits of me practicing it and other perks. But I just don't think I will be able to sustain the practice if I enrol back to my old studio. So I decided to search for YouTube yoga videos that could be an alternative for my yoga classes and just do yoga at home!

I found this!

It's really a perfect playlist. It's meant for home practice I believe. Some videos they have like, other yogis in it. And even the app I tried downloading on my iPad months ago, wasn't very motivating.

I started my morning with a 30-minute session (then fell asleep on the mat) and then another 30-minute session after waking up. I feel good inside. I don't feel 100% well yet, but I feel better. =) 

It shows that I really need yoga part of my life! 

Helps lessen worries, the stress, the anxiety, and a perfect way to kill boredom!




As for the rest of the day I'm going to do:
1) English Grammar Classes
2) Computerized-Based Assements
3) Spanish Grammar Lessons

Transcend: Lasallian Scholar's Society

 This was me during the scholar's event. I did the welcoming remarks for them. =) I love them!

 


The Lasallian Scholars Society is a student organization composed of students benefiting from student financial aid. This organization was established during my time as the financial aid officer of my university. I have resigned as an officer but these scholars have a way to capture my heart.

Theme for 2015 Transcend
This year's theme
I did the welcoming speech for this year's year-end celebration. As opposed to last year where they suprised me with a going away gift!

(Seriously guys) I also remember they surprised me with a birthday cake a day after my birthday.

I mean seriously? Thank you for adding brightness to my life.

This makes being in the education industry all super worth it!

Thoughts at four thirty in the morning...

I woke up at 1:30am and couldn't go back to sleep ...It's been weird how I've been waking up too early recently. I have not been a morning person for a long time.

Things in my life recently has been pretty much doing okay. Yesterday, I barely ate because of a lack in appetite. I think it's because my mind was just thinking about too many things that it barely had room to think about food. I hope today is a different day and I hope I get to have some appetite.

 I've been thinking too much about a lot of things but they're all positive things so far. Every day I am truly grateful of my life.

My sacrifices when I was in my early 20's were truly somehow worth it. I am probably not there yet in a life that I want to achieve but I definitely know I've gone far from where I was. And I am truly comfortable and happy!

 I am looking forward and curious to things the lies ahead. It is truly exciting.

Each day is different from the next. I am growing everyday and each month is always different from each other. I'm graduating on October and I'm truly excited with what's next in my life.

Command and Conquer! Let's go comrades!

My male highschool friends were commenting on a photo of our other friend. It was a photo of the Grand Canyon in Arizona and my other friends were throwing photo comments.

I just couldn't help but join the fun. They were photos of the classic Red Alert video game of the Command and Conquer series.

Classic childhood.








This made me realize what the hell am I doing all these online courses and books and not much video games nowadays.

Who says that games are only for children ???

Well then, call me a child.


Just recently, I had a chat with a new friend and we were talking about the video games that we used to play (or still playing).

It then also made me realize that playing these games can actually help you connect with people! 

It's been a LONG TIME since I had a light conversation just about games! For so long I've been talking about nerd stuff and languages and culture and politics.



I like games.



We need to play games.




It is part of living a balanced life.

Hustle.

So this month I'm gonna participate in a research for an impact evaluation of an e-learning product that rolled out in our public school. I need to hustle. 


And this week I'm also submitting my CD's to the department and office of university registrar. Well here they are!!!! I nailed those sticker labels!!!! 


Presenting your first ever thesis graduate for the program of Master in Learning and Teaching. It still sucks that I don't have the "arts" in my program. People might think I didn't have thesis. And that's something I should be proud of becuase it was hella struggle for real. 

APPLICATION TO GRADUATE (requirements)

Let's just get this over with. Buy sticker paper. Buy CDs. Go home tonight. Burn thesis in CD's. Print labels. Then I literally wouldn't have to think about thesis anymore. WOOHOOOOOOOO ... The legend begins. I am the first to graduate in THESIS track. 




Why is this task so easy yet hard to finish. Oh yeah because there are other things I need to do. Let's just get this over with! #thesisChronicles

I have no words.

I don't know what just happened today.

Physically speaking I had a tour at the School of Design and Arts building of College of Saint Benilde. I am so happy I got to visit that campus before I graduated. (Last month, I was also able to visit DLSU-STC in Laguna with my former colleague giving me a tour because he transferred there already.)


Also happened today: I met our University Registrar and had a quick chat and update with him. Change is indeed here. A lot of things are changing in our University. Positive changes, that's what I see it though!

So today, I also had this wonderful opportunity being slammed in front of my face. As usual, I was hesitant at first but I opened my mind and tried entertaining the idea. The day is ending with me, slowly trying to get sold with the idea.

I am really not sure what God has in store for me. It feels so crazy right now inside my head. Am I ready for a new experience? Am I ready for an additional responsibility? I should really be happy right now right? Things are not being constant... always changing... Which is good right?

Anyway.. let us see!!! :) St. John Baptist de La Salle, what is your mission for me????!!
