For me, blogging is very therapeutic.
There’s that sense of relief and liberation when I write about my feelings or the things I’m very passionate about.
People reading my blog and leaving positive comments is just an amazing bonus.
Working + studying at the same time is very exhausting–I’m in dire need of a blogging therapy now.
My heart and mind is just bursting with feelings that needs to be written down.
I guess I can say I’m back.. Again.
There are a lot of things going on in my mind right now and I don’t know how to start this–wait, I guess that should start it. LOLJK.
Good news! I’m not unemployed anymore. *throws confetti* Well, sort of, but I’m starting next week! *throws confetti again*
I’m hired as a Lower Primary Teacher and by next year, I will most likely handle and lead my own class already. Can’t freaking wait. I’ll miss my lazy days though, not gonna lie.
Currently, I’m still completing my requirements so I can hand it all in by Monday. I am exhausted but, we gotta do what we gotta do.
For my Masters, I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I’ll start this Saturday, 27th of October. No rest for me but I’m excited to meet new faces!
I do hope I can still continue with my other planned posts here. I’ll make this work. Hoping to post every Wednesday/Thursday the least. Ciao! ♡
Day 6 – What Are You Afraid Of
There are plenty of possible answers to the question, “What are you afraid of?”
There’s the usual fear of rats, dark alleys, and heights to name a few. However, if you’re going to ask me what I’m afraid of at this very moment, I’d like to answer the question a bit differently.
- To start it off, I’m afraid of disappointing my parents because their expectations of me are just too damn high. Mom, Dad, I’m sorry. I’m not THAT good, but I try to be. I’ll make you both proud, just hang in there.
- Here’s a funny one, I’m afraid that I can’t keep up with the ‘career change’ I made this year. What am I thinking? I got this!
- I’m also afraid of the future. Will I be successful? Do I get to own that car I always wanted? Do I get to spend the rest of my days with the love of my life? Do I even reach old age? I guess I just need to pull myself back to reality. Self, live in the now! Do not spoil the present with the uncertainty of tomorrow.
- Lastly, I’m afraid of exposing too much of myself here on the internet, hence, this delayed post ends here. Still getting the hang of this blogging thing, please bear with me.
Am I too serious? LOL. Anyway, I’m still and will always be afraid of rats, dark and empty streets, heights, being left alone with no money (I mean come on!), low battery, public speaking + a whole lot more that I can’t think of right now. I’ll just probably update this soon (says me who most likely will not be able to, love ya’ll tho).
Join the challenge! Check this post for the questions!
See you on Day 7 ♡
Hi there! As of writing, I am now officially unemployed.
I might start finding work in a few weeks time though–but for now, I’m just gonna chill for a bit and get my much needed rest.
With lots of free time on my hands, I decided to do this ‘challenge’ I saw on Pinterest. Although I don’t think I can post on a daily (Yes, I know that’s the challenge.. But I’m lazy), I’ll still try to post whenever I can or whenever I feel like it.
I’m just basically using this ’30 Day Blogging Challenge’ as my topic guide.
So, let’s start!
Day 1 – Your Blog’s Name
Steffi and Her Coffee
Just me and my coffee (I love coffee–if it’s not yet too obvious) + my spilled thoughts about anything.
This blog had a different name before, but I decided it’s time to change it soon to make it more.. Me.
I guess you can say that I was holding a cup of coffee the night I finally changed my url. LOL.
See you on Day 2 ♡
My new found friends in grad school, co-teachers and my students in my current job (which I will be leaving very soon–see here for more info) makes it really difficult to say goodbye once I’m done with that chapter in my life.
I’m already missing the moment while I’m still living it.
Truth is, we need to move forward for us to be better.
This is my way of finally embracing growth and the new adventures waiting for me–writing about it.
Adios.. For now.
I’m writing this blog post to remind myself that just a week ago, I courageously passed my resignation letter.
There are a latte (I just had to!) of reasons why people quit their jobs, probably from their toxic workmates down to their salary problems, you name it.
I’d rather not divulge the whole reason of my resignation for now, but a huge part of it involves my studies. Once I’m done with my Certification/Diploma in Teaching Professional Education this coming October 2018, I plan to take a step further and continue with my Masters.
Soon, after finishing the required 30 days of rendering work, I might update this blog again as to what my next move will be (work-related).
Just to keep me positive: I guess I don’t believe I am weak for quitting, I think people who recognize their weaknesses and is willing to take another risk is actually very brave.
Before I close this blog, I will leave this quote for me (or you, if you stumbled upon this post somehow) to remember..
“We must recognize our weakness to experience God’s strength.”
