Orientation Day


This is really a great day.

I have met a lot of new faces today, from Indonesia and Malaysia, and of course different teachers.
Well technically, I wonder why university officials don't get to know each other even if they're working in the same school. Maybe because their school is just so big.
Anyway,I guess I'm really having fun here. Most especially that I already love the company of my co-grantees from the Philippines. Mel,Angel, JP,Mik, Mark and Steph are really awesome people and they're really nice people to talk to. I could just share my experience to them in everything because we are of the same background. Just for that going into another country and trying to introduce your culture on them is another challenge that we should take.

It's already 2 AM when I am writing this. Actually, the idea of being in the United States still didn't sink in my mind. I think staying here in Muncie for weeks doesn't change my thinking because it's a suburban place in the US,so it's not the thing that we basically see on tv with those black cars chasing each other in big highways or thieves running their ways across the window panes of skycrapers. I guess Muncie is just ideal for living. The way it is is just the thing I wanna be when I retire.

You know what, there was this thing that almost all of us were confused of. By the way, it's great that American teachers don't get that boring. I mean they're really great in terms of blurting out the humor out of a concept. And they have very good technology that they could be very resourceful in trying to figure out the best way to transmit the learning to their students. I like the American classroom and the teachers are plainly awesome.

For now,I'll try to sleep again and wait 'till the sun show its hands on me, now I meant the rays. Oh, by the way, I remember Suzy say "Oh,I'm such a smarty pants". I remembered something when she said that. Either way, I'm learning so much from all of them.

So that's it for now.

SUSI Day 1


This day really started amazing because my family is so busy preparing for my nephew's birthday. You know that child really makes me happy because I have this feeling of being able to forget my problems when I look at his face.
It seems like he is so happy and innocent.
Well, if only all people would be like a child, this world could have been a lot more peaceful than how it could get today.

It's so cool because I've just had the coolest plane ride ever. The adrenaline shits are extracting all the creepiness out of my system and I could hear other people screaming in the plane. It's quite horrible at first, but then it's fun. You just don't have to look outside the window because you'll definitely feel how the storm would evenly want to swallow the plane itself.

Either way, I am very thankful that we made it through the weather leech and walked around the MOA (like I think the nth time already). And finally, I'm finding myself in front of the laptop, technically leeching net somewhere else, and enjoying the lux out of what SUSI could bring me.

Gotta tell you more later.

It's a start of a journey!

I've been contemplating badly these recent days.
I think a lot. I do it as a hobby.
But now, I'm thinking if being able to care less.

Precisely, I'm leaving for US this Sunday.
I have these kinds of petty fears like "Will I ever find myself in US?",
or will there be problems that I would encounter along the way?
Well, apparently, I'm having all the creepiness of it now.
Problems on laptop, on homestay gifts...
Oh, I remember JC telling me hours before this post that this program is exclusive to rich people only.
Because it already secludes people who have access, ability to buy suits, or even cash on hand for other stuff that may cross along the way.
Then I told him, not necessarily.
You always have the option.
Especially that the program is so generous and they provided us everything, maybe it would work to at least return even a bit by doing your best.

I have a bit of preparations. at least for the coats because I really love the black suits that my sister bought me.
With regards to my travel papers, Angel is going to the Immigration tomorrow to get my travel order. I am just very thankful that I have a helpful friend. I have never mistaken in asking help from her.She's the best.

By the way, I'll be missing a lot here in Philippines. Technically, not with Philippines national issues because I'm fed up with it.
By the way, I remember that when I went to Japan last year for 10 days, I've missed so many national news in the Philippines when I got back.
So I wanna be surprised again. haha.

I'll be missing a lot of classes. And that means it's an ACADEMIC SUICIDE...
But I just hope I'll be a lot sane when I get back. You know the real me.
The person who could sacrifice the whimsical times for studying. I will.I will.

But at the same time, I'll be missing a lot of people. I always miss my family. Even if I am in the Philippines. I just feel like I've spent less of my time for them recently.I wanna do more especially that they're the reason for my everything. Like everything. I'm gonna miss people.gf.bestfriends.close friends.

[senti ka dong. wa pa gani nadayun. futuristic ra. haha]
