One of those days

Teaching is one of my passions and interests. I am trying to build a career that is related to teaching or to training. I am glad to have landed in jobs in the past that gave me opportunities to teach or do training. I pursued graduate studies and post-graduate courses to enhance my craft. I also did some consulting jobs that involved training.

In one of my recent consulting jobs where I did training, I felt that the objectives of the training has hardly been achieved. I really felt bad because it is my responsibility to help achieve those objectives. I was the resource person. There are a lot of factors that have affected this, but the bottomline is I was not able to prepare well enough, and that I feel that I lacked a lot of competencies of being a good trainer. I feel I have shortchanged the participants and the organizers. I feel that I am not fit for the job.

I hope that I will really, truly learn from this experience if I am to become serious in becoming a good, or even an excellent trainer.

New Beginnings First Month

Doy and I have been married for more than a month already. There have been some adjustments of course, but I guess having dated Doy for close to 9 years have helped a lot. I know that Doy had to adjust with having me around the house, since he was used to living alone. I for my part had to adjust with doing the things that were usually done for me before, such as preparing food to eat, washing the dishes, laundry, etc. Although already known to us, we also had to adjust to each other's sleeping habits. I'd like to think that we are discoverers, discovering more on our relationship, of each other, and of ourselves.
