Photo Journal #53: July1, 2014 (Tuesday)

Enrolled in the following courses today: (1) Foundations of Virtual Education by University of California, Irvine (2) Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills by University of Melbourne (3) Functions of Bevahior in the K-12 classroom by University of Houston system (4) Leaders of Learning by Harvard University. Since I’ve not yet started with my thesis, I decided to filly my resume with online courses related to Education. To tell you, honestly, this day’s rough. Not only because I veered toward the negative me again but because I failed to keep my anger in a leash that resulted to a flush of insults to a particular student. Although we talked after the class, the negativity kicked in even more. Thanks to, a blog maintained by Cel Chua. These are the takeaways from some of her posts: Only focus on what you can control, be the best that you can be to attract your soulmate and identify where your real anger stems from to correct it. Yes, she’s right. And what are the things I can control now? 1. My sleeping pattern 2. My eating habit 3. my exercise routine 4. My emotional responses 5. My anger 6. My habits which all have effects on my overall goals. And so, instead of fretting over lost projects and my life in a rut, I should focus on improving these areas , enjoy the present moment, work hard on my online courses, devote my time on my two research projects and help people as much as I can. Plus, I can never go wrong with this decision.

Hi everyone! I’m kayla. This is my first attempt to share my thoughts through blogging. Got lots of exploring to do. Don’t even know where to start and what to say. To start the ball rolling, allow me to share with you some of the fallacies about Kayla Marie Sarte. 1. Writing is just not my line. Although most considered me as a creative writer, I doubt I have that knack. I’m direct to the point. My essays are straight. As long as I get the message across then that’s fair enough for me. 2.I’m not a walking encyclopedia, got that? How funny it is to be asked by some bunch of kiddos bout tons of stuffs I don’t know or even have heard. Worse? They expect me to answer their queries in a snap. Good thing, I can always find the usual “busy” excuse to elude their endless questions. 3. You just don’t know how pain in the ass reading is to me. I always record the days I spend reading and do my best to keep the pace. Yeah, I’m a literature major but it’s uhmm, …. Except for required readings in my literature classes in the class, I haven’t truly deal with literary works personally. Good heavens, I found John Grisham and Dean Koontz – my all time faves. (In my later posts, I’ll be sharing my thoughts bout their books.) 4. One thing I found truly bleak about me is my loved for movies. I don’t like cinematography or even crave like Glenn Ortiz to be the Steven Spielberg of this race. I just enjoy watching movies on the big screen. That’s all. So, it’s a fallacy that I like cinematography… just the movies. 5. Call me braggart, arrogant. Many think so because of the achievements I gained in the past aching yet meaningful 15 education years of my life. What they don’t know is how negative and perturbed, covered with worries, stressed I am most of the time. No matter how great the laurel I get, I always look back at the failurs I’ve been through in the past. So, that goes to mean, I don’t think highly of myself or consider my awards that much. Top 3 things about me: 1. A Theophile 2. A Xenophile 3. Just Kayla Marie B. Sarte That’s all for now. You’ll get to know more about me soon and about the project 2012 that led me to explore blogging. J One thing is certain for me though, I love who I am for I am fashioned the way I fit exactly in a large mosaic we are all in. Be happy. Live life according to God’s will. – Kayla Sarte
