The Latest



I ended October on a positive note. I was grateful for many reasons. We were safe from the strong typhoon. My cousins joined me in celebrating Kuya's birthday. I received donations from my book sponsorship project. (Thank you for the support, it means so much to me.)  I was given the opportunity to present in a crowd of Catholic educators with my superiors. I miss real lecture in a classroom but I realized, I had two humble public speaking engagements this year.

Truth to be told, I don't have intentions of taking mammogram and breast ultrasound anytime this year. I'm more concerned with my cholesterol issues. There were two reasons why I decided to undergo these tests. My recent meet up with the Cath Kidston Sisterhood (Hello Leah and Mother E), where I learned some health related concerns I should monitor. The Gender and Development activities I'm spearheading at the workplace also forced me to avail of these tests. I can't be a good leader unless I'm an advocate of the process. We have partnered with Gift2Life Inc., a foundation headed by a breast surgeon, Dr. Cristina Santos for this project. If you wish to create breast cancer awareness activities in your respective workplaces, I highly recommend Gift2life Inc.

Years ago, I associate September as the start of the Christmas season. It also marked as my workversary. I became an official member of the labor force on September many years ago. Last year changed everything. September would always remind me of the day when me, Dad and Kuya started to rebuild our lives without her. 

Surprises of September

Slipping Through My Fingers - It was only this year when I realized that this song, originally released by ABBA, depicts a mother-daughter relationship. I watched Mama Mia and listened to ABBA's songs because of my mother. It was her all time favorite musical group. Everything in the lyrics reminded of my mother. She was my constant companion on every first day at school. We always have breakfast together. She helps me pack and unpack my things on the rare times I travel.  We have designated mall dates; Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, her birthday, All Souls Day, before Christmas and New Year's eve. Everything changed during the pandemic. She was so careful, yet COVID still hit our home. Her lone and longest hospital confinement eventually led to her death. Time flies, it has been a year since we lost her.

While some teachers might be more than happy to remain in the same classroom for decades, others might crave a bigger challenge, a fresher environment, and a new routine.

If you have completed every goal in your current role, you might feel ready to embrace a new career in the same field.

Everything still feels like yesterday. It was this time last year when my parents both tested positive for COVID. While most families were savoring the long weekend, me and my cousins were exhausting all means to search for a hospital that would admit my mother. I thought that elusive hospital bed will be our savior. It turned out to be the last place where I could see my mother alive. She was taken by the ambulance and that was the last time my Dad saw her. I went home with her ashes and the next days were nothing, but the most painful memories. I would not have made it today without the people who continuously supported me.

The more I tried, the more I fail. 


This has been life over the past weeks. I still can't get over the sadness and silent crying episodes. It always starts on those days I long for my mom's presence. I will cry about my mother and eventually, all the other things that messed up my life.
