HOW TO STAY IN LOVE

Seven ways to nurture love and relationships.

According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer and the Discovery Weekend Program, the following are the tips on how to stay in
love
more.

1. Have a shared spirituality.

2. Be each other’s best friend.

3. Weekly dates are a must. Find time to be together.

4. Focus on feelings, not on issues and judgments, because feelings are neither right nor wrong.

5. Be affectionate and affirm each other daily. Embrace, kiss often, hold hands, and flirt with each other.

6. If married, have your own home, no matter how small. No parents, no in-laws, no siblings, and no relatives.

7. Never involve other people, especially friends and family, in a quarrel. Instead, see a counselor or someone who can “referee” for the two of you.

WHY DID I BECOME A TEACHER?

According to Dr William Arthur Ward, an author, educator, and motivational speaker, “The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” Speaking of great teachers, I had had many, but of being a teacher, I never planned or dreamed of becoming one. I was inspired to become a teacher after my high school graduation.

Over the years, I was blessed to have great teachers who inspired me to learn better and to fly higher toward my ambition. They made teaching and learning processes inside the
classroom fun, cool, and exciting. Because of them, I was inspired to become a teacher—engaging myself in a unique discipline that has passion to help children—wanting to make a difference in young people’s lives and to inspire them to make their local and academic communities and even their global village a better place to live and to learn.

Two months after I took the very first Licensure Examination for Teachers administered by the Professional Regulation Commission, the Makati Science High
School, the seat of secondary education not only in the City of Makati but also in the National Capital Region, invited me to teach Elective English subjects, i. e., Creative Writing, Technical Writing, and Journalism and Print Media, and to establish The Makati Science Vision, the official student publication of the Makati Science High School, which will become, later, as one of the best school papers in the country.

At first, I was daunted and petrified. I was extremely nervous about my intellectual and professional capability to tackle the job, teaching an academic subject that I did not
study in college, except that I was a campus journalist since my high school days. However, in God’s grace, I quickly learned the tricks of the trade by reading books and periodicals, attending seminars and conferences, undergoing professional development courses, and most importantly, pursuing my master’s degree in the University of the Philippines. Later, I enjoyed teaching my students and working with my editorial staff.

Despite the low pay, the many paper works, and the weary emotional pressure, I found fulfillment in teaching especially when my students perform and participate better in classroom activities and examinations and when they give me little notes and tokens of love, gratitude, and appreciation. And though teaching entails much passion, dedication, and compassion, I found enough motivation everyday by knowing in my mind and my heart that I was once a grade school pupil and high school student and that I know how and what my students feel and think inside and outside of the classroom.

In my 12 years of classroom teaching, I found enough joys of teaching: sharing tears and laughter with my students and celebrating their triumphs and successes in life; molding and affecting my students’ future and inspiring them to develop their fullest potentials and to help them actualize their dreams and aspirations; and learning life skills while teaching them, enjoying a tenured job and happy summer vacations, living a fruitful and conducive family and professional life, providing creative and energized
learning and teaching environment, and working with intelligent students, helpful and friendly faculty, and beautiful and fully-equipped school. All of these give me an exhilarating high that makes me continue teaching.

THE BEST MEDIA AUTOBIOGRAPHY

MY MEDIA AUTOBIOGRAPHY
UNEDITED SAMPLE FEATURE ARTICLE

By Marian Denise Glipo Basallote
IV-Madame Marie Curie


I have always wanted stories to have happy endings. I have always dreamed of having my own
story end the way I want it to, or better yet, the way fairy tales do.

My fairy tale came into existence on February 4, 1993. Fortunately, I do not have a life like Cinderella’s for I belong to a complete family and I am never maltreated in any means by my parents. Unlike her, I do not need a fairy godmother for the pursuit of my ambitious wishes. My strong faith in God is more than enough to help me make it through and succeed.

During my younger years, I was so captivated by the strange magic of fairy tales. I read fairy tales most of the time because of their attractive illustrations and exciting plots, along with the usual children’s books. I also loved watching cartoons in the Cartoon Network Channel. However, as I grew up, my fondness of cartoons eventually vanished. On the other hand, my love for reading deepened, became stronger and gradually developed into a passion. During my elementary years, I usually visited our library at San Beda College Alabang to borrow pocketbooks, such as Sweet Valley High and Nancy Drew or sometimes, informational books. In our Reading class, we were well-provided with SRA materials that, I believe, greatly contributed to the enhancement of my reading skills and abilities.

As a child, the television, aside from books, served as my companion during those times when boredom was filling the entire atmosphere at home. However, we followed stringent house rules such that we had only limited time for watching. I understood that it was my parents’ means of instilling discipline into our minds and hearts. I never complained or fought back. Instead, I focused on my studies and worked even harder. I loved watching shows in ABS-CBN. “Rosalinda,” with Thalia starring in the lead role, was one of those programs that left an indelible mark in my memory. One would find it queer if he/she knew that I was a wrestling fanatic back then. Believe it or not, I enjoyed watching that kind of show together with my younger brother. We were amazed by how the wrestlers did all sorts of risky stunts and moves, but little by little, I started losing interest in the world of wrestling.

As a grown-up now, I still spend a lot of my time reading books, but unlike before, the inspirational kind of books greatly sparks my interest. Paulo Coelho’s “By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept,” “The Devil and Miss Prym” and “Like the Flowing River” are my all-time favorite books. I admire Mitch Albom for his heartfelt books, such as “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven.” “Messenger” by Lois Lowry is also one of the soul-enriching books I enjoyed reading. I feel a different kind of tranquility and fulfillment whenever I finish reading such books.

My weekends are never complete unless I see my father reading a newspaper at a corner. He loves reading “Philippine Daily Inquirer” and I wonder what makes him do so. Apparently, I do not pay much attention to news, but sometimes, I am compelled to. At around 7 o’clock in the evening, we are obliged to tune in the television to ABS-CBN for “TV Patrol World.” Whenever my father brings me to school in the morning and fetches me in the afternoon, I cannot help but listen to the news for the radio in our car is constantly tuned in to DZMM. He really wants to keep himself updated on the happenings around the country every now and then. He has an insatiable appetite for news. It is one of the many reasons why I look up to him as my father.

Watching television is one of my ways to release stress and pressure coming from all the school works we are assigned to. Having a hectic schedule at Makati Science High School, I am blessed enough to be given resting hours. During my spare time, mostly on weekends, I get the chance to watch my favorite shows, such as “America’s Next Top Model” on ETC, “American Idol” on Star World, which recently concluded, “M.I.T. 20” on MYX and “The Playlist” on MTV. I also watch a lot of ABS-CBN shows, especially those aired at night, such as “The Singing Bee” and “Pinoy Dream Academy.” I really enjoy watching reality shows, as well as, korean or taiwanese series. I used to be addicted to the korean drama, “My Girl,” which starred Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae. “Princess Hours” and “It Started With a Kiss” are also both romantic-comedy series that I watched out for.

Watching movies in cinemas is one of our family’s bonding moments, especially during special occasions. We watched the “Harry Potter” series in theaters, as well as, “Spiderman 1-3”, “Narnia” and “Enchanted.” The last movie we saw was “The Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” I found it thrilling and out of the ordinary. “Just Like Heaven,” “Just Friends” and “13 Going on 30” are my favorite Hollywood films ever. They made me laugh, but at the same time, they deeply touched my heart.

Almost everyday, I am able to surf the net. With the tons of assignments we are given, access to the internet is such an advantage. I can search the information that I am looking for in an instant. I can converse and coordinate with my classmates by means of yahoo messenger, in case of a group work. There is so much to be benefited from it. I have my own blogspot account and it serves as the outlet for my suppressed emotions and ideas. Whenever frustrations and doubts bother my mind and I feel like crying out, I resort to blog posting and write down everything I need to say.

I am proud to say that my parents never deprived me of the privileges anyone could enjoy from mass media. They have always supported me in all my endeavors and even encouraged me to maximize my potential through the aid of mass media. They have always wanted me to gain life-changing experiences from it for their only desire is to give my life a happy ending, just like in fairy tales.

Sprinkle
By Don Michael A De Leon


START HERE

I do not know where you are right now. Maybe you are just around the corner, perhaps down the concrete road, or possibly in the grassy backyard. It is very difficult to think of you, knowing that I would be hurt repeatedly, and to think that you have been so unfair to leave me all alone in spite of everything we have gone through. Thinking of you makes me dispirited.

I could never forget the first time our eyes set mark on each other. The very moment my eyes met yours, a powerful attraction enveloped us, and I knew that my life would never be the same again. As I tickled your body, clutched your stiff tail, nudged your moist nose, and caressed your shiny brown coat, you moved uncontrollably, jumped and knocked me down, and licked my face. That sudden and unfavorable response awakened my animalistic spirit. I grabbed you by the neck and wrestled with you in the backyard. After a grueling exhibition of courage, strength, dominance, and some tattered clothes, I declared myself the glorious champion, while you, the big loser, went out cold, defeated by the invincible warrior.


I cared for you very well, and I completely made sure that you would grow strong and healthy. I remember that when we went to the veterinarian for the anti-rabies vaccine that you had to take, the doctor had a hard time injecting the substance because you were whining like a wimp. A weakling, the doctor might have described you, but I knew that you were very brave like me, and you would not easily groan just because of a very tiny wound.


We always walked around together, and every time we played and got splattered with dirt, we would run back home and secretly clean ourselves. Sometimes, we would pretend to be detectives trotting stealthily along the sidewalk, searching for footprints of robbers and their intimidating bloodhounds, which would turn to be out our own tread marks. Although I always got tired of our adventures, I was very happy because I shared happy memories with you. And even if you always bit my notebooks and scratched my legs, there has never been a time when I got mad at you, because whenever you would tend to anger me, all I had to do was carry you in my arms, and all the anger in my heart would simply fade away.


But, everything has a season – a time to live and a time to die. Until now, I still could not understand why all the good things on earth last for a short while and then be gone forever. I just woke up that morning, and as my mother told me what happened, it seemed that everything we had been through was just a lie. She told me that the gate was left open, and as you ran out, you got hit by a tricycle. It seems, she added, that it was meant to be, because instead of cries of pain and agony, you passed away just as though you were sleeping. I did not know what to believe. I felt deprived of the chance to see you just for the last time. I cried because I never thought that after all the joys and the adventures that we have shared together, I would, in the end, be all alone again.

As time passed, I realized how important you were to me. I came to love you not just as a master loves his pet, but as a brother I never had. I still feel sad when I think of you, but I become stronger when I remember all the experiences we had shared. In you, I found the love a brother could give to his own. I found courage to be brave for every endeavor I have to face, and because of you, I learned to find great happiness in simple things I have everyday.


Thank you, Sprinkle for the life and happiness we had shared.
