    We Made It!

    Yes! We made it for one week without being late! We live far from the school where I am teaching and where my daughter is attending school. The travel usually lasts for about 1.5 hours including the walking and the commuting. From the house to our terminal, that is about 500 meters to 800 meters depending if the shortcut is available for us. Then from the terminal, we travel for around 30 minutes down to the public market where the terminal to the barangay where the school is situated. That alone almost reaches around 45 minutes due to the consistent stopping of the multicab. So going to school alone takes…

    Thoughts on Time

    Since I decided to teach, I kept on thinking about how I should manage my time. As of the moment, aside from being a single mom to three children, I am also a teacher by daytime and a virtual assistant at night. And not to mention, I am currently the president of CDO Bloggers Network (that means I am also a blogger) and a part-time online entrepreneur. If I look at it, with the positions I hold, I think I don’t have the time anymore. I am fully-booked! BUT, there are some obligations that I need to fulfill without compromising my own goals and aspiration in life and also pursuing…
