Photo Journak #127: September 13, 2014 (Saturday)/Metacognition, Answers, Eureka, Calling

Just realized how different people can be even in finding their way through a flush of seemingly disconnected information. How I search for sources differ from how Glyd or ate Juliet cull their references and I can’t help wonder how hard it can be in their part. I always thought people search info the way I do. And I was all wrong. I learned much from this. Metacognition. It’s actually not the bits of info that we memorize in the class but it’s how we find ourselves through… Hmmm. Also, while at lunch, the three of us had a hearty conversation. They even pointed out how indecisive I am- I don’t know where to go. yes, I agree but it’s because I just don’t want another important area of my life to be totally left out. Painfully dreaming to put an end to this dabbling. For the past few days, I started already forming an image of myself 10 years from now. And quite opposite to what I was dreaming, I slowly picture myself as having many adopted children or raising orphans in my own orphanage while attending to my prison and suicide projects. Of course, I see myself also as an accomplished teacher, published researcher, and a voice studio owner and literary coach. Tsk!!! I really want to fall in love!!! But I just can’t. What’s with me??? At 5 pm, I started rating/judging the oratorical pieces and stories for this wednesday’s literary competition at UIC. Now, somehow, I feel very certain of my calling. As I shared last Tuesday, I was really depressed and it was then, in morning of the next day when God whispered my inner calling: to help the depressed, the sick, the imprisoned, the orphans and the strayed. On my own, I will fail but because I know God’s with me, I will achieve this calling. Thank you, God.

About kaylathetheoxenophile

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
