Superhero

Monday... I've never been busier than ever. I brought my lunch with me, rather than the usual routine of going back to my apartment for lunch. If I go back, it would take me an hour, for me to go back, eat, and return to my office. Thus, I brought my lunch, and simply reheated it in the department microwave. Thus, I was able to eat lunch in fifteen minutes.

I had people meet me during the mornings and afternoons. C'mon, I am just a student, not a full-fledged professor. But then, what can I do? My students are submitting their homework this coming Thursday, and they need help. So here I am again, ready to the rescue. Yeah, LIW the superhero.

I had a couple of people see me regarding their homework. And the good thing is, they change their amount of knowledge before and after they see me. Of course, it's not that after they see me, their knowledge depreciates, no, they often tell me that they understand better now that they have talked to me. I guess that is the role that teachers should always do. Let the students understand the lesson, and not confuse them more. I once had a professor that made me confused, rather than be helped, whenever I saw him. So I sought help from other professors, which solved the problem.

Speaking of consulting with professors, I also consulted my professor for my paper. And basically, everything went well. I hope I am on schedule. I had ideas and according to him, it was good. I am using the coming Thanksgiving weekend for a vacation, yeah right, no, for writing this discourse coherence paper, and I am using LaTeX for this.

Speaking of LaTeX, I have so far figured out much of the things that I needed to know in order to make a paper. The next thing I need to figure out is how to make a bibliography file automatically. Because I am making it manually, and people are saying that it is very easy to make one automatically. So I'll ask the people around the department and ask for tutoring.

Well, that's it for today. I have a homework that I want to do tonight, so I'll have that cleared for the rest of the week.

  1. When you're done with your graduate studies, would you still come back to Pinas? This country needs dedicated educators like you. More power!
