Make Things Extra Special Through Doodling.
Blog Entry №.1
I can still remember the day that we thought the suspension of classes would only last for ten days, but it did not happen as expected. When our professor gave the reading to us, I was so nervous because I admit that I am not really into research since it requires a high critical level of thinking needed when you are going to pursue such. The readings about Stand Up Planet and the End Game has given to us amid the pandemic, and I am very much overwhelmed by many paper works to do. Sometimes at night, I question myself why and how I’ve gotten myself in this situation when all I just wanted when I enrolled in the university is to learn and graduate.
Honestly, I am not the type of person who can smoothly adapt to any sort-of learning environment. I learn best when an instructor or a teacher explains the lessons for the day, and distance learning is not really for me. For the first few days of the lockdown, I really cannot control myself personally, but to rant every time a new assignment notifies me on my phone because I still have many household chores to do. As things went by, I just accepted that this is our new reality already, and so, I don’t have a choice but to finish my research digest.
And the doodle above sums up my experience of doing such. Before I started doing it, I felt extra nervous, anxious, and afraid because I might fail our teacher and disappoint my family. However, after consulting some of my classmates about how they did it, I was relieved because they are also new to that activity so, I am not alone in my feelings. But I completed it neatly, and so the feelings inside me are leaping. I felt like I was on cloud-9.
Overall, the digest just reminded me that a step at a time could make a thousand miles.
