Graduation Gift & Spanish Classes

It's funny that my last post was about me stressing out on my planned travel.

It's been a month already since I left the Philippines and been moving around different states of America. It's been fun. I'm not gonna talk much about it but just probably upload photos in another post.

Hopefully next time I leave the country, I won't be as stressed as I was when I was planning this trip.

Relax. Tranquillo.

In the mean time, I want to share an update that I've purchased a year subscription on Babbel for Spanish Classes. I've met a lot of Spanish speaking individuals during this trip and I barely remember my Spanish lessons. I'm going to take it seriously this time so I can prepare myself the next time I go back here.

Here's my first certificate for finishing Beginner's Course 1.

Leaving in a few days...

I'm so stressed. 

I'm travelling in a few days. 

Stress levels are high. 

I'm panicking.

So many errands to do.

So many things in my things to do list. 

So many things. To buy. To fix. To purchase.

Once I was a twenty year years old...

Once I was twenty years old, my story got told I was writing about everything I saw before me Once I was twenty years old Soon we'll be thirty years old, our songs have been sold We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming Soon we'll be thirty years old. - 7 years by Lukas Graham

I've waited for a long time to do this: Some people throw their graduation caps... but I prefer to throw my entire thesis. Not everyone will understand the pain of a MALT-THESIS student. In the process, I learned more about life and less about my academic program. #HiddenCurriculum

Of all the days I leave my calling card at home...


Always bring a few calling cards in your wallet.

I'm so excited about my university offering a masters in educational technology program. Glad we are finally adapting to the trend.. (Finally) ...
