Self-Honesty: My Anniversary Post

One year of writing. One year in WordPress. One year of having fun.

Time passed so fast and in unnoticeable rate. I started writing online last year because of Bubblews and, along with that, because of money, and also because of that, believing it would increase my traffic as well as earnings, I created blog here in WordPress aiming to post my articles that I had posted in my Bubblews account. I was hoping the number of cents in my bank would increase. Unfortunately, that was not effective. So, I stopped that strategy which caused me to stop posting articles here in WordPress also.

I roamed around in the colossal vastness of World Wide Web. Searching ways to earn dimes. Finding spot to establish my connection in virtual world. I was frustrated. Suddenly, I realized I should stop writing for money and I should be serious in writing, and because of that, I revived my blog here changing its tagline into “Blogging For Fun” and the first article since I started to write for fun was “5 Reason You Should Stop Blogging For Money”. A realization post. From that time, I was having fun in what I am writing. Unlike before, I was just forced to write because of quantity. A quantity without quality.

Well, enough for that. Let’s celebrate my anniversary here. Wine floods. Foods are bountiful. So help yourself. Don’t be shy. It’s my treat.

And as I commemorate my special day here, let’s go to a more serious part. This time and in this post, I want to talk about self-honesty. I don’t know if there is such a word because I did not search for the meaning of this when I am writing my anniversary post. But I guess, the word explains itself which tells being honest to yourself.

Partial Taste Of Teaching: My Reflection On My Practice Teaching Experience

Job of teachers is undeniably exhausting. There are lesson plans to make. Instruction to implement. Assessment to administer. Evaluation to conduct and many other teaching-learning related works. Exhaustion is not only evident on the actual field but also in the field of training. As a teacher-education student, I cannot deny that fact. I will say it in not too exaggerated way that I am also bombarded and stressed   by the continuous piling up of tasks. We have a lot of reflections to meditate with and I feel that I was already drained of thoughts and ideas by unending making of reflections. That is the funny thing about rushing. Students are pouting about the deadlines. But the fact is many days before the deadlines, the common expression of the students “Later…” reigns. I could relate with that situation because I am one of the students who do that. Anyway, that is one of the things I learned in the subject assessment of learning the benefits of reflection to the process of learning. In one of the modes of assessment, the portfolio assessment, the most distinctive feature of it is having the element what we call reflection. This is one way to view the students’ learning. This is also one of the effective interventions to involve the students in the learning process on their own pace. This will trigger the students to activate self-assessment within them. This will give them idea about their progress. Continue reading “Partial Taste Of Teaching: My Reflection On My Practice Teaching Experience”
