    vera, naulit lang yung map parts, nasa geography and life sana yung gusto ko pang isama lessons about jars of ancient greece. if you are interested, you can check it out. ecai, if you have your own computer, you probably already saved geography of egypt kaya yun yung automatic na nag-oopen. i re-checked the post, geopgraphy of greece naman talaga yung nandit. try saving the file under another filename or another folder, if you have your own pc. im glad that you liked the part about the parthenon. it is always part of more or less traditional lectures about ancienct architecture. it is really fun teaching art to your studeents like you, especially if you are really interested. so now, im trying to post gods and goddesses and the parthenon. im here at burger king enjoying jr whopper, fries, coke and sundae. hahaha. the gods and goddesses are already uploaded, the problem is the parthenon. it still wont post. im crossing my fingers here. 🙂

    madami talagang stories about ancient greece. actually, every culture, if you would look at them closer, there is always something interesting to find out. all you need to do is look closer and pay attention. art is in every aspect our life, as long as we take the time to appreciate it 🙂

    @jeza, sana ok naman exam nyo kahit mejo nahirapan ata ang mga bs psych this time. though if i may say, nadalian naman ang mga customs… lets wait for the results shall we?

    @jean camille flattered naman ako. i have to admit i am having so much fun teaching you guys. humanities subject is really fun to teach but the students are the ones that really makes the class special. though there are some problematic students, the mere presence of really motivated students makes the job of a teacher so gratifying. i hope i will have the opportunity to teach you guys again. sana may subject pa kayo na matuturo ko ng ok… if there are any concerns at all please to let me know…

#gamerchef took this photo a while ago. Far from any glamour, such is parenthood. Leia turned 3 months yesterday, and with it, the signal of my time as a full-time mom coming to an end. As short as it is, it still feels like an end of an era. We're enjoying this incredibly challenging time together, as much as we possibly can. Along with the preparation of my syllabus comes the preparation of Leia's routines, as well as breastmilk that we've started freezing bit by bit since she was a month old. There are things that must be adjusted, some must be given up. But that is the story of life I suppose. We make our choices, we move forward, and hope that more doors will open when the time is right. Pikachu is here to help us. Lol. #babynarratives
Our precious little Leia is 3 months old today. She's definitely not an easy baby, but she will smile her most adorable smile and it will all be worth it. I think. (Lol.) She likes grabbing things now and putting them in her mouth. She's attempting to roll but can only manage a side roll. She loves to talk and make a lot of noise. You can definitely tell if she's happy or upset, she will let you know. Right now, she can't sleep, so I am her bed. I just hope I don't drop her. Goodnight little one, I hope you get some sleep tonight. We missed #mtg Nationals 2018 and Antoni's first birthday celebration, but we'll make it up to them soon enough. #babynarratives
Is it bed weather again? Unfortunately for Leia, bed weathers are challenging. She does not like the sound of rain. She's a spring/summer child. #babynarratives Photo by Picture Company
This was Leia at 2 months. Finally managed to bring her to a photo studio. I wanted a newborn photoshoot but it didn't quite work out like I wanted. She did not cooperate much during the photoshoot actually, but they did manage to get some cute shots regardless. Maybe we'll get another shoot when she can manage to sit. I think our little one would like to explore space while fighting the dark side. Lol. #babynarratives
Our little one is 12 weeks old, I can hardly believe it. Her hands and fingers fascinate her, and she recently discovered her feet. She also likes feeling our pillows and looking at the patterns of the pillowcases. She's our adorable one and she's growing too fast. Yet, she still cries when Daddy is away. #babynarratives
Took this a few days ago... Once you get over the fact that a crying baby is stressful, it becomes really funny. Look at that face. Lol. She does smile, but its easier to photograph the crying. Smiles disappear after a second, cries usually last a while. #babynarratives
