I’ve been so remiss in working on my blogs (and even on those commissioned articles that I so love doing :() mainly because of this thing called a THESIS. Sigh. I love being in the academe and I swear I do not wanna give it up for anything but this is such a challenge that sometimes I just think of throwing in the towel and (not that their job is any easier, mind you, it’s just the fact that a graduate or doctorate degree is not expected!) becoming a nanny abroad, going into the call center industry, or being a full-time blogger. Sigh. Like I said, I know their jobs post their own difficulties and challenges, and so I know it won’t be a walk in the park. But at least there’s no need to read those journal articles. Haha.
Yes, this is Teacher Ria attempting to release some of the pressure from writing the thesis. Teehee. I will get it done, though. Like I said, much as I never expected to fall into the academe, I love it to bits. When I first set off into college, I had wanted to either become a writer or get one of those Healthcare Aides Jobs (no, I didn’t want to be a doctor, but a nurse, or a midwife or a nursing aide! I wanted the caring part of the job and not the “difficult” serious job of healing) and so when I fell into teaching, I found that it was a merger of the things I liked best.
Until I met THESIS! ARRRRGHHH!!! Okay, talking in circles now. Back to thesis-ing. Wish me luck. Home stretch….it’s due on Monday. Haha.
