I never thought there would be a “career and profession” category in any of my blogs. I left behind a career — by choice — when I became a mother.
Then, I gave up a promising second wind eight years later — again, by choice — because I wanted a career that would not keep me away from my daughters for long hours everyday.
Writing from the comfort of my own home, at my convenience, worked just fine for the past four years. But there are changes looming ahead.
I’m going to teach, part time, at the kids’ school. My friend, fellow lawyer, former U.P. College of Law batchmate, partner-in-crime in the school project that became HEdCen.Com and, now, fellow blogger Eric Santos, not the singer, and I will be teaching the senior class — an elective on Internet and Law. It’s been in the can for a couple of weeks now and it became official — and public — when the announcement was made at the Parents’ Orientation Seminar earlier today. Although it’s been months since Eric suggested that I mull over the idea of teaching, it still felt strange to hear it said publicly.
As usual, Speedy had foreseen this. When I started blogging, he always knew that the next step was the print media — a newspaper column — and, until two years ago, I thought that was very funny. He had broached the idea of teaching more than a year ago and I thought he was being funny again. Me, teach? Very funny. But, well…
I’m not the only one gearing up for some changes around here. Speedy‘s blogging. He always said he couldn’t write. In fact, I always helped him with office communication, including speech-writing. But he has posted two entries so far and I can’t believe that I fell for all that crap that he couldn’t write. I swear, from now on, he will do his writing by himself.
So… a toast to changes. May they create more wonderful memories.
