30 years old and a first year college student.
June 16, classes start…
While on my way to school I didn’t feel anything, not even anticipation, I’m even more concerned about the outcome of NBA Finals than what will happen to me in school. and so it goes, nothing exciting.. though I was elected as ED1B Section President, I think I was elected because of the mind set by my classmates than my capacity, they thought because of my age I’d be the best choice. I should have declined but I thought what the hell? might as well do it, I’m sure I can.
The most interesting part was meeting my instructors, the teacher that really interests me was my English Instructor, she’s fun, easy to understand, very welcoming and I thought I’d be like her. The others were the usual, strict, trying hard to be funny, to communicate with their students’ teachers. But they all seem eager to teach and with that I am determined to learn from them.
It’s amazing how I’ve changed from destructed, restless student then to what I am now, I now have the enthusiasm, the drive to become a teacher, maybe it comes with the age, though at times I thought I’d lost it already.
Observing other students are also interesting, there are those who’re confused, those going through family problems, those determined and confident, students who goes with the flow, the loud ones – they are the typical high school students who doesn’t know yet what tertiary means.
Though I lost my cool at home, all in all, my Introduction to LCC is a nice one. and now I can say,
“My journey begins with them.”
