  1. On Role Models

    by , Yesterday at 12:36 AM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Growing up I realized learning need not be from oneself alone. There are practically so many things to learn. It would take a lifetime to learn them all. I was advised that in order to do this one must have three sets of friends: an older one to gain wisdom from, one with the same age to exchange wisdom with, and a younger one to impart wisdom to.

    There was always somebody I looked up to when I want to achieve something. Someone I place on a pedestal for such and such character. I ...
  2. Fearless Initiation

    by , 04-14-2014 at 11:58 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Next year, I will be celebrating ten years (that's one decade) of my teaching career. I know I don't measure up to most teachers who have spent more years than I did. I'm also fully aware that there are still many chalkboards I need to erase, more test papers that require my red marks, more compositions that need dissecting, more parents to talk to about their children's problems or achievements, more competitions to win or lose, more crying nights trying to figure out what it takes to be a better ...

  3. Wired

    If I could just digitally illustrate the neurotic make up of a person's brain, I would have definitely figured out what each of my student's would be when they grow up. I could reengineer it to the point that my perception about them would be aligned. Miss So is good in drawing, she should take Fine Arts. Mr. So and So is well not doing good, he could be a bum. So on and so forth.

    Of course, I'm only joking. This only happens in the movies.

    That's the whole point isn't ...
  4. Leap of Faith

    by , 04-14-2014 at 10:16 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    My Christian views are unorthodox, probably brought by my exposure to religious sects other than what I was raised up to be. There are things that I have slowly decided not to practice (but continue to respect) because I have found them to be "unnecessary" given that I had come to realize that you need not do something in order to believe.

    You just need to leap.

    Leap with faith, that is. I might be speaking metaphorically but I know (and am sure that you are nodding ...
  5. Three Sides

    by , 02-02-2014 at 11:28 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Many women may have fancied him with his swagger and sexy moves on the dance floor. Housewives and househelps alike may have quit household chores just to see him dance or act in his noontime show. Small wonder he gets all this support from his audience.

    I was aghast when I first learned about what happened to him just last week. First it came as a hearsay, something that wafts through busy streets on a rather ordinary day. It was juicy and I couldn't wait to take a first bite. His ...
  6. Dear Adam

    by , 02-02-2014 at 09:28 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Dear Adam,

    I know we're both not the type who would profess our love for each other out in the forums. Don't worry I would take this note with utmost anonymity. I just wanted to express how much meeting you has enriched me not only as a woman but as a person.

    For starters I have been way too selfish for having preconceived notions about men --- that they are a bunch of cheaters and liars. I have already explained how you have been an unworthy victim of this preconceived ...

  7. Got to Believe

    My favorite poet once said that "Love is like a wildflower in the deepest parts of a forest. You'll never know there's so much beauty that existed but when you meet one, you'll be amazed" (rephrased).

    With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I'm all psyched up about sharing all those "wonderful yet bizarre" love story beginnings from people I know and thought they might be worth sharing since we're in the season of love.

    1. The closer you look, ...
