I must say, summer is really over in the Philippines. After worrying whether our department chair would give me teaching loads or not, now I can really heave a sigh of relief. And it happened too early. Having a full load is not new to me, and honestly, it’s a challenge again to face my students and to deal with their diverse personalities. I’m also thankful that I’ll be back to teach Philippine literature and creative writing. I got one load for art appreciation. but it’s okay though. It would also be my first time to teach grammar. I know it sucks, but yeah, I have to teach grammar whether I like it or not.
Generally, this semester is kinda exciting. I have a lot of things to look forward to. And besides, we have a new university president. I wonder what changes would unfold during his term. My tenure perhaps? LOL. And I’m planning to pursue my M.A this time. I’m returning to my alma mater.
Wish me luck!
