i have been teaching in college from 2000 to present.. seems like forever.. at first, i really enjoyed teaching. i loved the people i worked with! yeah, i really do! then, there were so many changes.. suddenly, the most of the people i work with are gone. others went to other departments, while the others, resigned and moved on. and the rest... well, i hope they were not fired. i don't know but when the environment in our office suddenly changed, i don't feel that happy anymore. i mean, i am happy when i am in the class because i am with the people that i truly care for--my students. but i am no longer comfortable in our office. i have been thinking about leaving my work for quite some time now and i have finally made up my mind.. i will be starting a new life after this semester! i am not leaving teaching for good but i will no longer teach full time. i plan to relocate. i have always wanted to leave near the beach and that's what i am going to do. start a new life, take care of my grandmother while she's in the philippines and establish additional businesses. this will mean that i have to leave my parents here in the city, coz my younger sister is still in elementary but it's okay coz we won't really be very far away from each other. this will also mean that i will not be seeing some of my friends for quite some time but again, it's okay coz they could always visit me and we could still party. besides, they would love the idea that they could go to the beach without having to rent an expensive cottage! there are so many things that i have to sacrifice but i believe this is for the best. i don't think that i will ever leave teaching because it's something that i really love doing. i can always do that in one way or another. the world will never run out of schools right? but i just think it's about time for me to be in a not-so-new but better environment.
i think that is how people are... constantly searching for what will make them truly happy.
After a long dry spell, I am truly happy that it's been raining for the past few days!
The dry spell has brought a host of problems such as the low water levels at dams, power outages due to the reduced generating capacity of hydroelectric plants, cutback in the amount of water supplied to farms in Central Luzon and households in Metro Manila, and a series of fires in the metropolis. Eight municipalities of the province of La Union were declared under a state of calamity sometime last week and just recently, Ilocos Norte, Isabela and Cagayan were also placed under a state of calamity.
On August 1, Manila Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales yesterday urged the public to pray for rain to avert the crisis a protracted drought would bring.Rosales has issued an Oratio Imperata Ad Petendam Pluviam or Obligatory Prayer to Request for Rain and Intercessory Prayers for Rain to be prayed in all masses in the Archdiocese of Manila that started in August 3, a First Friday, which is the day devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.In a circular to all parish priests, shrine rectors, chaplains and school directors, the Cardinal said that the crisis of lack of rain in what is already the rainy season calls for divine intervention. The Catholic dictionary says that an oratio imperata is “an ordered prayer for a special intention besides the ones prescribed by ritual that the Pope or the bishop of a diocese may require to be said at Mass.”
Not for anything else but I sincerely hope that the rain lasts for a few more days to quench the thirst of the entire country especially the northern part of Luzon.
