Lesson learned: write blog post every day to avoid rushing writing. Sorry for the lazy hurried post again. Went to record my script first in the uni. I wasn’t quite satisfied with the result because of my gasps and p’s so I hurried to the recording studio at GMALL to record again. But before that, i went to Cafe France for my merienda (pasta pomodoro and three croissants) .The voice quality of the recording’s good plus the service’s great. I love the way the old owner and the assistant attended to my needs. Plus, I received compliments which I didn’t from proud school heads. Yeah. Although ice creams are the worst enemy of Voice talents, I ended up having three scoops of Mango float flavor from Gelatea. Yummmy!!! You know what’s the greater blessing today? I was able to concoct a thesis proposal for two hours (weird, coz I’d been planning about it for ages) due the next day. And I know, it was the spirit who helped me. Thank you, triune God!!!
Finally, after half a month, the Death Row project’s letter containing my assigned death row inmate arrived at 8:00 a.m. I did not expect crying after reading “my new penpal’s” desperate plea for a letter mate. Who wouldn’t respond to that immediately eh? Since I still had pending postcards to send, I also decided to mail them to Russia and Germany along with the letter. By the way, my afternoon’s spent with ate Angie, watching “Maybe This Time”. #laidback wednesday, yes.
Today, I wrote my friend a letter for her birthday at 2:30 p.m while waiting for my 6:00 p.m. mass schedule. I also refocused my goals using Dr. Schwartz’ 10 Year Guide and his 30-day improvement plan. I believe the news I received from Ma’am Gladish about my exemplary evaluation from San Pedro College sparked my interest again in improving my teaching craft: A great news to thank for the day, and in focusing on what truly matters in life: giving back and loving.
went to Minlab Davao today for my laboratory. After, I decided to stay at Dunkin Donut’s just in front of the lab to read while Papa had his check-up with a neurologist. It’s great to have capped the day off by leaving a note to Gee and Anne for being so accommodating. 😉
“1,000 Notes from Heaven” is one of my works of mercy. I promise myself to write a thank you letter, give a gratitude note or send an appreciation message through email or other social media to at least 1, 000 people. I believe this is one of the best ways to be a blessing to my neighbors and to fulfill the will of Jesus for me. This activity leaves me looking forward to each day. You should try it! I just want to inform you beforehand, however, that this activity is addicting. Yep, at first, I was a little hesitant and shy to write a thank you or praise note to random people (usually in restaurants) and even to individuals I know but believing that this simple act of kindness will make them see the world in a better light pushed me. Now, I extremely love doing it without a tinge of reluctance.
