Third Time a Charm



After some grueling reviews, sleepless nights, and  tears shed, I finally passed on the third  time of taking the Licensure Exam for Teachers.  The first and second time, I reviewed very hard and was disappointed that I did not pass.  After that, I was done, I doubted my abilities of becoming a teacher but my sister told me to keep trying and  to give it a try one more time.  Before deciding to go to Manila, I  took the exam again but this time, I did not  study and wasn't expecting anything and  what a great surprise, I passed!  Third time is a charm I guess, thanks be to God and to those who believe in me.  I am finally a licensed teacher.

After some temporary jobs that I got in Bicol  after graduation, I decided to  go to Manila  to see if there's some good opportunities there for me.  It is so hard to find a job here in my country.  Even though you are qualified for a position, there is no available job to apply for.  My sister Rossel told me  that her husband might help me out because he works in TESDA that's why I went here.  So far, I have applied for two companies and still waiting  for their decision.

For now, I am  spending some quality time with my nieces and nephews while I am still waiting for  the  companies I applied for to call me back.  I actually interviewed for one and got accepted but  it was like a networking job so I did not forgo with it.  

If only job opportunities  is good here in the Philippines, it wouldn't be  so hard.  No wonder a lot of people are going out of the country to work abroad.  I am actually thinking of applying  abroad but I don't know yet.

I went home in the province with my sister Rossel and visited Mama one more time  while I don't have a job yet.  I have been encouraging Mama to go with me but so far, she doesn't want to leave our place.  I love the simplicity of living in the province but I feel depressed when I go there.  There's nothing there productively.  It is not just a place for me.  My sister Rose really inspired me to  spread my wings and take chances.  

I want to   thank my  brother-in-law John and my sister Rose for not giving up on me, for their  continued support and encouragement. Without them, I couldn't have gone to college on my own.  They are my biggest support system not just financially but emotionally as well, so thanks you very much Ate and Kuya, I love you both!
