Pursuing Latin? I want to be a Latin teacher! 

HOW TO BE A LATIN TEACHER?

I saw a guide online and I am leaving it here on my blog so I can get back to it easily. 

The feeling has passed, but 3 days ago, I finally checked my grades and I got MY VERY FIRST UNO in my entire 6-year stay in UP so far. 


The feeling has passed due to the fact that the truth about me being unable to remember most of what I studied has sunk. I might have gotten a 1 but will I remember all that I’ve learned?

Today in my interviews, I was asked about my career plans. We only have one person in the Latin department of our school and I would like to be the next Latin teacher. Of course this means graduating–which I should. 

Anyway, I am keen on this whole Latin retention and I will definitely finish our book and learn the classics slowly. 

Hello, 2017


Spent my new year with TV5’s #GameTayoSa2017 New Year Countdown. As an introvert, a concert ground–moshpit would probably be the last place you’d see me but I went there for Offroad (A Korean boygroup). It was really tiring but it was worth seeing them that close, and seeing them happy to see Oasis.


(My eyes were glued on Daewon though).

I spent the first day of 2017 with my friend, then my relatives. 

Day 2 was productive–I studied Norwegian for a bit and bonded with my cousins. 


Day 3 was a sudden family day. Skated for the first time in almost a year, I think. Last night, I learned the difference between a lose shoe and tight laces. I thought it was slippery due to the water  but it wasn’t at all with my blades perpendicular to the ice. My legs are still tired from all the tension due to my fear of falling.

 After that, we ate at this Japanese restaurant which mom suggested. 

For today, I should review or study and be productive to ward off any possible anxiety. 

2017 is a year of change. I’m letting go of almost everything from 2016 and the years prior to it.

Guess who was studying too many languages all at once.

I went home today and boy, I’m so restless. I didn’t get to study Spanish yesterday but I did get to review some Turkish, a bit of persian, a bit of arabic alphabet (which I already know but have to go through) and a bit of vietnamese alphabet.

Today I started studying 2 Chinese songs which will probably take a while to study, I got distracted by Welsh so I reviewed a bit of it (Greetings 1, 2 and Days @duolingo).

…I’m still restless but I guess I should sleep…

Or not.

I found out that my almost-crush is a Salmon (Capricorn Horse).
It means we’re 94% compatible—or so the site says.

 

Merry…25th.

I do not really observe Christmas but I decided to not fight with people on its origins and Christ’s actual date of birth… and greet everyone who greeted me.

Oddly drew something after months of not doing so.

 

It was supposed to be @habinnny (IG) of the Korean group, Offroad but I can’t draw so nvm. 

Saturn returned to Taurus last December 19. It’s said to help Tauruses follow through plans…I could feel it. 

Well, I’m determined more than ever mainly because I’ve “wasted” 7 years in college and 4 from highschool. It would all be a waste if I stop now… but I won’t be young forever. 
Anyway at the moment, I am listening to a russian somg while studying spanish. I’m stuck with adjectives…

one of the examples were:

“el mal problema”

but is there even a “buen problema”?!  

I hope my brain permits me to finish studying adjectives tonight. Wish me luck! 

Uncertainty + Latin Grades

Hey guys! Latin 10 Class grades just came out and I got a 2.5! In the Philippines, 1 is the highest with 3 as the passing grade.

I actually missed a lot of class which is why my professor said he’d expect a 3 from me although I might get a 4 (there is a need to retake the test or class). I studied so hard for the exam even if it was all pointless given the university would be kicking me out anyway… 

I actually got the 2nd highest score in the final exam which makes me REALLY HAPPY and accomplished. The person who got a higher score than me took 2 years of Latin yet I was just 6 points behind him hehe. 

Nevertheless, I’m 95% certain that the school won’t let me continue to stay in the university… I’d have to transfer and start all over again and spending 11 years in college is… such an exhausting experience.

Moreover, my dad might not be able to support me until graduation–it might be better to just work. Afterall I’ve already spent 6 years in college. 

Uncertainty aside, I’ve been studying Cliffs Quick Review for Spanish I. I just finished reading til Chapter 6.

My life seems to be going nowhere but I’d feel more lost without doing anything.
