day 852 – student appreciation

image

students showing me some love bringing me an early christmas gift. these are constant reminders of why i continue to teach and coach even when i am outright exhausted. seeing my students work hard, improve and achieve is the greatest reward an instructor can have. i do take pride in seeing all that happen before my eyes. there will be times when i will rant about teaching, but sometimes i feel like i am too attached to let go of it

the whole holiday season crept up on me faster than i can keep track, it has yet to sink in that its already christmas day. received my present from my parents that could go towards something really big, something i have been eyeing for quite a while. many thanks to all the gifts, cards and blessings in christmas 2013

day 146 – season of giving

a pleasant surprise to receive a christmas card and little gift from a good old friend i have known for years. even though we don’t see each other as regularly as before, i am so glad we continue to keep in contact. as he said, let’s keep it going and create many more memories in the new year!

day 140 – christmas card

image

spent the night hanging out with a close one who was ever so supportive and would never think twice about making time for me. received a christmas card from him enclosed with very meaningful message. truly cherish the time we spent together, the chances we took, the feelings and small talks we had and most importantly grateful for the memories we have created and shared. it’s been one hell of a ride i wouldn’t have it any other way
