Jeepney Kids

While on a jeepney ride going home, I sat beside two families. The family farthest from me had a little girl who was out of control. She would switch from one side of the vehicle to the other, deaf to the scolding of her mother and father. On the other hand, the family sitting just next to me had a behaved little boy. He was just curiously looking at the little girl who was already throwing a tantrum.

With an exasperated voice, the mother of the little girl said, “Look at the baby boy. He’s so behaved.”

Just then, a smile spread through the faces of the little boy’s parents, clearly, because of pride.

I didn’t know what to think. It was one of two things: feel happy for the parents who had the behaved little boy or feel sorry for the parents who had a gremlin for a baby girl.

I can’t wait to have kids.

Maling Akala

Natatandaan ko pa na nag-post ako ng mga "coming soon" dito sa blog ko. Sabi ko, makakapag-post na ako ng marami pag-dating ng summer term ng mga American students ko pero hindi pala. Since na-promote ako, marami pang ibang nangyari sa pag-unlad ng career ko.

Una, nag-rerecruit na rin ako for the writing consultant post. Dahil 50 ang kailangan kong makuha, araw-araw, busy ako sa pagtetest, pag-iinterview, at pag-papasa ng mga applicant.

Pangalawa, malapit na akong mag-birthday kaya ayan, medyo depressed mode na naman ako. Lagi naman eh. Just before I have my birthday, I feel depressed.

Pangatlo, nagamot ata ng pagiging workaholic ko ang pagiging insomniac ko. Ayan, wala tuloy akong time para mag-blog. Kahit nga Sunday, hindi ako nakapag-online -- ngayon lang.

I hope to make it up to myself and my readers in the coming days. Ewan ko lang kung kailan yon.
