When everyone wishes for their October to start great, I never hope for mine to be. But it is given to me anyway.
Yesterday was Friday, the last day of the week, is often when students are motivated to go to school, because the next day will be the weekend; but that’s not the case for me. I am motivated because today is the day when the RCians celebrate Teachers’ Day!
You might ask, what’s exciting about this celebration? Only teachers get to have their day-off. But hey, as students, we should celebrate too, because this celebration means there are still teachers existing and sacrificing just for young people, like us, to be educated.
Not only that, there are also student teachers who will take the place of their chosen subject teacher. A well-rounded experience for those who applied to be one, I might add. They get to meet students with different personalities and traits and also experience what it’s like to be an educator for a day.
Teachers for me are our greatest heroes, because (1) being a teacher has other sub-roles like being a sibling, a friend, and a parent. (2) They also don’t just teach, they educate. They don’t just pinpoint facts, they let us understand how and why it happened. I salute teachers because (3) they have patience and understanding, something that is difficult to possess in one’s character.
On the same day, my closest friends came to visit us. Hi Denevie, CJ and Dex! Hey Mitchell and Alea!! *waves* At first honestly, I was kind of busy doing our project, but when I finally greeted them, I became overwhelmed!
They are not just my closest friends. With them, I feel comfortable and free. We talk about everything, we play games, we tease each other, we shared laughter and sadness, we agree on almost everything!
Seeing them, which felt like the first time again, and hugging them (especially Mitchell) is a great relief because it shows that our friendship never fades away. It is an amazing feeling, the greatest comfort I ever felt in years.
Is this too cheesy? I am about to cry. Without our teachers and without our friends, what would our life be like?
