Year 2008 had been a good year for me... (I guess so)..
a lot had happened. (new things actually.)
I resigned. Applied for a new job. Yeah, had a NEW JOB. Adjusting in the new environment. (I tell you, that was tough! but see... I'm still here.) I started writing in my blog(s). (and actually enjoying it! especially with the people I met or knew through blogging)
It's really a tough year since I'm no longer in SFDM Parochial School and I missed them so much! (can't remember how many times I told that to myself!) All I have with me are photographs and memories of them.. well, I can actually visit them once in a while but that's different. Do you see my point? (sigh)
Still... a lot had happened. (cannot write it all here) but the point is we are still here.. standing. Yeah, we may say goodbye to 2008 but we shall say hello to this new year ahead of us. :)
Goodluck then! Year 2009.... welcome! :)

And I am also so busy for these past few days because our Teachers' Day is getting nearer and nearer and we are practicing everyday for the presentation. And guess what?... I am going to dance. (ewww!) I can't imagine myself on stage while dancing my head off! The celebration would be on Tuesday, December 2, and we are so excited. Since, we are just new in this field (I mean.. public school), I've noticed that the teachers' day is a big deal for my co- teachers! It is THE DAY. It is really very important to them. Well, now I know how they feel. And I think I understand. (I hope so...) :)

Anyway, the above photos are my entries for this week's Skywatch Friday.

It's been a while since I posted something here. I've been so busy for the past few days. Well, the school started again after a one week semestral break. And also during that time, I've been computing the grades of my pupils and getting ready for the PTC (Parent-Teacher Conference).
Yesterday, our school had the Investiture for the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts and an overnight camping immediately followed. I was so sleepy today because I only have a two-hour sleep (blame it to the late night scouting program and those stubborn boy scouts who stay awoke until 2 in the morning, and we have to get up at 4 or 5 AM). Me and my co-teacher, who were assigned to guide and keep an eye to a certain group, find it hard to sleep because of so many reasons, the uncomfortable space, unfamiliar environment and of course, the mosquitoes! (hate it! lolz!)
Having a 2-hour sleep and feeling tired and dizzy, I still managed to go home at 6AM to prepare myself for my MA (Masteral Degree) class. I have to travel all the way from Cavite to Manila to attend to my class. (wheew!) Well, I steal some sleep inside the bus on my way to Manila and also, going back home to Cavite. :)
The above photo is my entry for this week's Skywatch Friday.

It was on the 17th of January year 1983, I was born in a small apartment in Rosario, Cavite. My parents, Victor and Vergie decided to named me Vicky, which came after my father. Then after a month, we moved to my father's hometown., General Trias. After five years, my brother Vergel was born and I was already in kindergarten at that time. I actually forced my mother to send me to school because I was so excited and wondered how it feels like to be in school since all my cousins and playmates were already in school.
I stopped school after I graduated in kindergarten because the teacher in grade one did not allow me for I am too young to be in grade one. Then after a year, they finally admitted me although they're still undecided because I'm only 6 years old. It's just so happened that my birthday falls on January, the start of a new year and its hard hen you're the only pupil who was born in the year 1983 and all of them in the 1982. You're always to be considered as the youngest and my teacher even called me as “saling-pusa” and for that, I have to exert effort to be good in my class. Lucky enough, I became the class first honor. My elementary years had been an exciting and meaningful one. I graduated Salutatorian in elementary.
I went to Governor Ferrer Memorial National High School, the main campus of the only public high school in our municipality. I landed on the section one until my fourth year. After high school, like most of my classmates, I also went to college. I took up BS Industrial Education in Cavite College of Arts and Trades but after one semester, I stopped. I stopped because it wasn't really my desired course and school for that matter. I really dreamed of studying in Manila but our financial situation hinders my dream. And so, I opted to study in Cavite and get a course that I'm not really into.
After two and a half years of stagnation, I'm lucky enough to be given another chance to go back to college. My cousin Joanne actually gave me the idea of taking my chance in Philippine Normal University. Luckily, i passed the exams and so do the interview.
My parents supported me financially and morally. I stayed in Normal Hall Dormitory since first year college. I also take up the course that I want and one of the reason why I went to PNU in the first place. Now, I'm in my fourth year in college and still have months left before the graduation and a couple of requirements to be submitted. And yet, I'm looking forward to graduate, get a job and help my family. Now, I'm getting ready to face the real world.
*I made this during College.. (one of our requirements before graduation!) Hayz... ganun pala ako magsulat... look at the grammar... lolz! :)

This photo was taken last September 18 during the District Meet of General Trias 2. It just so happened that SFDMPS also joined (for the first time) the said event. I, together with Ms. Bird were so excited when we first found about the news! And it also happened that Santiago Elem. School (the school where me and Bird are currently teaching) followed after the SFDMPS in the line (we are just beside them! haha!) Of course, we made kumustahan and all. It's as if, we're still with them. (hehe..) I really missed them.. so much! I hope we can have the time to visit again the school.. so that I can see all of them!!! :)
I captured this unusual rock formation in Pansol, Laguna (where we had, together with my co-teachers in SFDMPS, our night swimming). I was quite amazed with it and I felt a little bit mystical about it. It looks like a head of a horse or tikbalang (a mystical figure according to Philppine myth, having a head of a horse and a body of a man) or somewhat ahedres (chess).
