Never Stop Learning Because Life Never Stops Teaching

"Never stop learning because life never stops teaching"

Perhaps, the above-quote is really the reason why I had to engage myself in a post-graduate study. In every beginning of each class that I got in to, my teacher would ask us to introduce our selves and state the reason why we've enrolled in a post-grad studies class. And my honest answer would always be "for professional  growth" in which my classmates may have doubt about if not disagree since most of them are there for one common reason - promotion. That is always the case when one is teaching in a government school here in the country.

The government school pays better than the private schools but regardless, I opt to stay where I am simply because it is where I want to be. Others may find my decision unrealistic but what I do and where I am makes me happy and I that's what matters to me.

It's been over a year since I got myself into post-graduate studies and now that I'm half way through it, I'm still holding to that same reason.

Earlier this morning we've had our presentation for our final output in Creative Writing - my final academic class for the year. Funny how it felt like I'm a regular student again.:D

In less than a month, I'll be taking the comprehensive examination. It's a crucial stage for me because it is only when I can pass all four subjects that I can proceed to enrolling the thesis proposal, direction and the writing. Until I can accomplish all those, it'll remain a dream for me to become a full-fledged Master of Education with English Language Teaching specialization next year.
