MARIKINA, June 2, 2014 — It is our first day in school. We just walked and did not take a ride since we live here in our scholasticate, the Marist Asia-Pacific Center (MAPAC). On Mondays, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, we have subjects about the bible, the New and Old Testament.
Feelings? Does does it feel to become a student again?
It feels different.
During the diagnostic tests, I felt relaxed and it is okay for me to just commit mistakes by leaving blank answers to those I do not know. No pretensions or straining myself to try to answer what I do not know. I can learn later anyway. That is one purpose of learning — to know the things that we do not know. Reinforcement, that is.
I am quite familiar with our professors, our very own staff Brothers in MAPAC community and lay mission partners. To be honest, I am more excited to know our new classmates from different religious institutes here especially the sisters.
Lessons will come later. First, let us mingle and have some clean fun.
