Ideas in our heads are easy to think of. But useful or not is actually a question. How to carry it out and publish or sell the idea to the audience is not that easy. People have great ideas all the time. However, not a lot of people actually commit and bring it to life. I am, honestly speaking, is one of those people. Tell me to think of an idea? Awesome possem. Not that hard. But actually doing it? Hmmmm….I’ve got to think about that. First of all, as a student, I am not that creative. Second of all, no experience in life or even know how to do some simple things correctly, let alone creating an innovative item? You’ve got to be kidding me. Well, bad or not, I still have to do it. So why not try right? My English teacher says I could fail, because that’s how I will be able to learn new things. Sure…I don’t think failing and getting a grade I don’t want is a specifically good thing. Who is going to let me try again huh? Definitely not my transcripts nor the colleges. Anyways, enough ranting. Let’s get to work now.
This brawler thing is FANTASTIC! Fun debates and awesome arguments from every group. This is such a new thing that I have never done nor tried before. There are great moments as well as not so great. Before the Brawl, each group has to submit at least from two to three questions that we have to come up with on our own from reading the book. Then, the teacher will select the ones that every one is going to do and prepare for. After that, ten questions were given out to the whole class and here we are, starting the journey of finding answers. Time were given in class to work on it with our group all together. It was kind of difficult to provide the best answers or solutions to a lot of questions like that. Because we could not focus on just one thing. Also, we did not know which question will be picked for us, so that’s nerve-wracking, too. What if he pick the one that our answers weren’t the best? The question crossed my mind. But, what else could we do? What comes will come. Right? So no point in worrying too much. Therefore, I just go for the best of them all.
Well, let me start with the beginning. Okay so, this is the first year EVER that I do something like this. Blogging instead of reading stories in the textbooks, answering questions, and then take the tests or quizzes? AWESOME POSSEM! 😀
There are so MANY FAILURES about this new experience, I have got to say my friends. Not a lot of traffic on my viewers. But that’s OKAY. Because guess what? Failure is the Mother of Success. 😉 However, part of it was my fault, too. I did not really try to like invite more traffic, more people/viewers. Use more attention grabbers and stuff like that, you know. In other words, I didn’t really care. I don’t know. I’m just not that into popularity. Haha…No. But overall, this year in English was a good and definitely exciting year. Though my English teacher always tells us students that it is Okay to Fail. But the thing is..we can’t really take risks and fail that freely. Easier said than done. We don’t get a chance to, that’s all. Because if we do, the grades are going to the transcripts and blah blah blah…You know what I mean. However, I really do appreciate this class and this opportunity of having a chance to explore new things while learning English like this. Gave ways for more entertainment and also the strategies to learn new things at the same time. This is what we call, “A Chance to Live Baby! YOLO!” (I made that up by the way). So yeah, this blogging thing is wonderful. I really enjoy being able to express my personality and putting my thoughts out there to raise awareness to some specific problems that I want to bring to light. Thank you for all the supports. Also, sometimes the due date and stuff like that are kind of annoying, because sometimes I fall asleep too early and forgot to do it. But thanks to the teacher that he did not put us down as late! Thank you Teacher, for being understandable! Love ya! ❤
