Thank You

Hulyo 8, 2012

I went to church early this morning and I asked a little favor from our parish priest.

I went up to him, and bluntly told him my dilemma.

“Father, I need help.”

To which our youthful minister replied: “What is it my son? Anything I can do for you.”

“I need to have myself baptized, Father.”

“Have you not received that sacrament when you were a baby?”, he inquired.

“I did. But I have to do it again. This time, to change my name.”

“But why would you want to do that?”

I reached for his head, pulled him closer and whispered something in his ear. (<—- this part doesn’t sound right…  hmmm)

And just like that, I got myself a new name. Now I shall be called FLATTERED.

Listen World, I’M FLATTERED.

and here ends my corny introduction and my FAIL (sorry grammar nazis, I want FAIL to function like an adjective here) ATTEMPT (and i’m fifty percent sure ATTEMPT here functions as a noun) at story writing. Why am I flattered you may ask?

themathteacheralsoreads has been nominated/awarded The Versatile Blogger Award! And for this, I have to thank the awesome Kristel of The Quarter-Life Experiment (free plugging of your blog here… hehehehe) for nominating/awarding me. Thank you!

I really am flattered. You see, I literally had nothing in mind when I finally decided to start my blog about books just a few months ago (that was my original intention when I started this until all of a sudden it turned out to be a “chop-suey” blog functioning as cache to the “randomest” things my mind can muster) so it never really occurred to me that people would be interested with my endless rants and blabbering. I truly am surprised and flattered. As proven by the second time I used the word flattered in the same paragraph! Whoah!

Again, thank you Kristel!

Okay. So part of the rule in receiving the VBA is to nominate 15 other blogs whom I think are also worthy of recognition and to mention 7 random facts about me! Here’s my 15:

And the 7 random things about me:

1. I secretly dream of going back to high school so I can repackage myself as a cool nerd who play the guitar. (But I don’t know how to play the guitar)

2. I am a Math teacher, but the only time I competed for a contest in Math was in 2nd year high school where I was an alternate.

3. I sing in the shower. Everyday. Every single day.

4. I used to be part of the debate team of our college.

5. I dream to study writing and to publish a compilation of my poems someday.

6. Drawing/Sketching is one of my first loves.

7. I’m a huge fan of OPM songs from the 90’s.

the end. thank you.

    congrats teacher 🙂 your blogs sometimes convey the feeling that you are tired of the world of numbers, formulas and equations, and you recharge by visiting the world of literature. I like your book choices, more power!
