I am going to miss my college days.

Today is the last night of my last semester and now my college is officially over. I am BEd graduate now. I don’t know whether to smile or to feel sad…. But I choose to be happy :)…


It was great experience being here... four years... I got an opportunity to  learn many things. Now, when I look back I feel…the changes. Time and life keeps on moving without a pause… People come, people go… We laugh, we cry… Some slow learner, some intelligent. Life is so beautiful in its own way…

In my last four years of Degree I met many people… I was attached to many…And worked and enjoyed with everybody I came across… I discovered a different me… More self centered, bad and self indulge me… And I improved as well in terms of public speaking, organizing, presentation and so on…

All I can now recall is that first presentation when I was shivering with stage fear…. That first interview for organizing committee…those talks... bunking classes…running towards Rimpung  campus… Rehearsals… Practices…Improvements… Exams… And so on…. Life was always fun and exciting here…

I have learnt very good problem handling skills and stress management… How to meet deadlines ;)… by completing a week long assignment overnight… All those group tasks which compelled us to stay up all night with our talk on… All those frequent semester exams…uffs!!

These four years of my life were really good… I know what I have learnt… I can sense the changes in me… I met some really great people… I would not name all of them here but yes my chemistry tutor Jas Raj Sir had a great impact on me… I still miss his presence every time I achieve good marks in chemistry … :(

My teaching practice was like a turning point which gave me a very good exposure and learning experience and I really appreciate my mentor who was not just a mentor but also a strict teacher who taught me to inculcate values in students.

Apart from these two people…. I met many who contributed to my life in one or the other way… I was encouraged, appreciated, criticized and discouraged time to time… But it always added towards my learning and helped me to learn and become better with every step…


I would love to mention the names of people who were always there for me… whether we talk daily or not and those who were always there for me as a life supporting system… But I’ll not because I don’t want to hurt anybody my skipping their name by mistake, those who are special for me will know this and he/she will understand this…
Everybody expects from their family because they are the people sent by God for us… It’s very difficult to find people outside family from whom you can expect…. And I am one lucky person…. I met such people at every step of my life… :-) :-)
I feel that I am kind of detached soul… But still I miss people from my past… Places… time… memories… tears and smiles… I can relate to everything I left behind…. And touchwood I feel blessed because whenever I look back I find my people standing there for me… :)

Now, I am going to start with my professional life… I just wish all my friends and acquaintances all the best for their future endeavors… I hope to stay connected with you all… God Bless you…

And thank you God!

NELSON MANDELA

The World has lost a real Hero. NELSON MANDELA's life will inspire generations to come, to follow the noble ideals exemplified by him … He will always inspire people across the world to raise voices against injustice and exploitation, and to endeavor for a society based on equality ... 

RIP NELSON MANDELA ... 1918-2013 ... 

I am back :)

Hello my blogger friend and reader! How are you doing? I hope that this weekend has been a good one for all of us.
It has been quite a while since I last updated my blog. I don’t know if any of you missed it but, I did.  It is very therapeutic for me to write and share my feelings.  I have said this before but sometimes life just gets in the way of my writing.  I will try to do better but I am not going to make any promises. 


I don’t know where to start in trying to catch you up on what has been going on around here.  I guess I need to crow a little bit…

I just wanted to share you that I nailed my final exanimation of my life as a student on 29th of November. And I did the best chemistry exam ever. I love myself lol :P… That’s like an awesome feeling to complete exams anyway.
Right after my exam I went to visit my brother there at Punakha. I also visited my sister of Shari HSS and finally I covered every one of my cousins who lived here in Paro valley and conveyed my warm goodbye to all of them. And for this reasons, I was disconnected from blogging, though I had big plans to blog right after exam.
Now, I am attending three days orientation on scouting, organized by Ministry of Education. As soon as I am done with this, I will fly to countryside, and I will sit for the RCSE examination preparation. The stress has already arrived in my mind. I too feel the worry and panic as well, but I’m doing my best to keep calm and push on through, one day at a time. As much as I hate exams, I love the feeling of walking out an exam and having it behind me a sort of conquering feeling. 




Until next time…Rupa

Fare well Dinner...

Hello friends and family! This won’t be a very long post as I cannot be in front of the computer for too long. Focusing more in front of the computer gives more irritation to my eyes. Umm I am little concerned about my eyes lol.

sel roti with alu dam :P
Whatsoever, I am writing this blog post just to pay my token of gratitude to our junior ladies of PCE. Today, we had a fare well dinner by junior ladies to the entire boarder outgoing final year students. The program started with the well come speech by women’s provost, and we were served with sel roti (bread).Ma’am highlighted the importance of sel roti to be served first. The main purpose why we were served with sel roti was that after years of departure, we have to walk on the ring of sel roti and again come back together with lots of motivating thoughts. She said, “We have to meet again in future.”


kkk
:)
We had fun time with our provost; 
she is jolly, strict and compassionate with kind and loving heart. We had yummy dinner together. She also awarded the khaddar to all the hardworking councilors. Finally we had photo session, we hugged, wrote the message in the piece of cloths and fare welled everyone present in the crowd.


Thank you all for your ceremonial dinner. We final year students really enjoyed everything that you all prepare for us.

Morning reflection ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

I quote Robert Louis Stevenson, "That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much."  Mr. Stevenson quotes inspired me this morning. We don't always have to measure success by how much money we make or what career we have; there is a much more valuable currency and that is a smile. I think I
Keep smiling!!!
measure success in life by how much happiness one has and for some people money is happiness, but that's not true of everyone. If I had slightly less money but was doing what I liked then I’d be perfectly content. Also, it's very hard for me to understand those people who are "too busy" to have love. Love is the best and worst emotion rolled up into one not so neat package and who wouldn't want to experience that? I sure do. And of course laughter is extremely importan
t for lifting spirits. I love to laugh and just enjoy life, something I’ve been trying to do more of lately.

 Enjoy young adulthood because it's momentary and you'll never get it back. Enjoy you're youth while you have it and stop obsessing about the future (something I am entirely guilty of). Look at the sunset and put on some sad music. Take a long walk through nature. Smile at someone. Do random acts of kindness. Get a coffee with friends and just chill. Go hiking. Take a road trip. Visit your friends, miscall your parents daily; if you are students, if not make a call every day, they did lot to you. Parents are and were heroes in your life. Do not forget to wish your best friend birthday; if u failed then he/she will be hurt. Talk to a stranger, Live like a goddess. Read comics and eat chocolate ice cream. YOYO... Jump around. Laugh. Love. Live life to the fullest. 
HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

Keep Jing!!!

Last class... ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

3 Noon on Nov 18th  2013 was technically my last class in college life!! I have truly enjoyed life to the fullest here and I am now in a transition period between College and Corporate life. And to add more zing to the whole thing are the 8th semester exams which willheldon 29th of Nov!! What can I say … This too will pass???LOL
Well well,  Life is full of memories; pleasant and unpleasant. Some of the memories are forgotten easily. But, there are some memories that go a long way in life. They are ever green in mind. We can recall them anytime, anywhere. First day entering inside the class in the college and the last day out off the class in college were always counted and remembered in one’s life.
          My first day in college were still green in my mind. I will never forget it. It is important for many known and unknown reasons. It was a wonderful day indeed. I entered the class with loads of embarrassment and total blush, in front of unknown friends and unfamiliar tutor. However, as the time passed by everyone became friends and everything became unfamiliar to familiar. It’s truly heartbreaking to leave our beautiful college campus, the loved one, knowledgeable tutors and the most attached persons in ones life. However, as someone truly stated that, “meeting and departing are the part of life.”
 Everything looked strange to me today, though very familiar. I had strange feelings these days. It was going to be my last day in college very soon. RIP!!

 Today we had last class with ma’am Hari, she made a speech. She inspired us with her experiences. She aslo expressed good wishes for all of us.
In the mean time listening to my tutor, I was sadden and my heart became heavy. This memory will remain green in my heart forever. I won’t be able to scrape these memories from my mind. However, still there will be last meeting on Wednesday because we are planning to give tea party to our entire tutor who imparted us with their wisdom.
our class with ma'amhari... <3

National seminar…

Today, two days National seminar on Multi grade teaching and learning came to an end, which is organized jointly by the Paro College of education and Department Of Curriculum and Research Development; funded by UNICEF. The theme of the seminar was, “To promote quality education in our country.”  General director of ministry of education Tsewang Tashi was the chief guest on first day and His Excellency honorable Education minister Mingbo Dykpa was the chief guest on second day, accompanied by the representatives from UNICEF, education specialist, Curriculum specialist, Director of DCRD (co-host), members from DCRD, DEO’s, ADEO’s, principals and teachers from different schools, faculty members of Paro College, NFE instructor, students from multi grade schools and graduating students-teacher of Paro college of education attended the two days ever national seminar.
In simple term, multi grade means, teaching two or more grades of students in one class.
The main goal of multi grade teaching in our country is to achieve the goal of education for all.

  •  Educating for GNH( Gross National Hapiness).GNH addresses that if the child in the school are happy in learning, then that's GNH.(Karma Jurmy, lecturer Samtse College)

  •       Multi grade schools will also support and allow the over aged students to move in the higher grade.
  •   If there are less than 25 students; then only we can apply the multi grade class.
First day seminar started with the marchang ceremony and followed by the welcome speech by the director general Tubten Jamtsho, Paro college of Education. The day was beautified by the paper presenters from nook and cranny of the country. They presented the over view of the multi grade teaching in Bhutan, their experiences teaching in the multi grade classes, challenges they faced and views from the multi grade students. We also entertained with the delicious lunch. That’s the shortest over view of the first day seminar.
  Similarly second day, crammed with presentations from different multi grades specialist and question answer session, till lunch.
 After lunch, we received the chief guest His Excellency the Sherig Lyenpo. After that we had the merchang ceremony, followed by the welcome address by the director DCRD (co-host of the seminar). We the student-teachers are inspired by the speech given by the education minister. "A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others." This quote by an unknown author embodies every aspect of what every teachers at all School level do for each of their students.
We the teachers, plays a pivotal role, where the life of students will be revolving around. We are trained for four years in the college to become a good teacher. We are trained in different mode to handle students in different situation. Thus, Teaching has always been a big part of my life. Today I am ready to go to any kind of schools; be it high school or multi grade school, I  am sure that I  can handle it and I  am ready to teach them. I have always known that teaching could be a career where I can influence the lives of others.
When I look at each individual teacher, I try and think of  what has inspired them to become a teacher? It seems like each one has a different reason but it always comes back to the same concept. It's because they love what they are doing. They love to inspire and impact students. They have that true passion for their subject area, the school, and most of all their students.
To conclude, these knowledegeble seminar not only taught us about the multi grades teaching and learning, however, seminar also imparted us with the values needed in the live of teachers.
I  will upload the photoes later. So, keep visiting dear readers!!! :)

I don't wanna be Jack :P

Hello friends, I have neglected my poor little space for a while right...so shoot me lol. My life for the past week has been too academic… I seriously need some fun! (Inspired by the cliche: 'all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy) I don't wanna be Jack lol... I definitely gonna watch movie tonight. I am ready to watch Krish3. YAY! It's winter. Even though I have a lot to do this winter I will try to relax. I promise to be chill this winter guys. There are so many things I want to do, like preparing for RCSE(Royal civil service examination), take a trip with my friends and Learn dzongkha.

cold weather makes me happy :)
 Anyways, I just wanted to comment on the cold weather and why it makes me happy. The reasons are:
1. I like looking fashionable in nice pink scarf.
2. I actually like the formal uniform and for some reason winter feel like an appropriate time to wear it every day.
3. I get opportunity to wear fashionable coats.
4. The crispy air makes me feel awake and lively.
5. View of snow on the mountain top.
6. Sitting in front of heater with snacks.

Winter is the best season that I love the most. Hey winter reminds something, this winter will be unusual for me as I will do away with my studies and get into real field. Surely it will be a bitter sweet moment for me.
Bitter because; as the year comes to a close I've been thinking about my senior year and then going off from college. I finally realized what this will mean for my friendships. Most of my friends will be leaving college. 
With my bestie Yangsoo..
They say, FRIENDS of schooling days are those who you can never forget… If Life was good at Dagana, you were one of the leading reasons behind it… If life was beautiful at Damphu you were the biggest reason to me. If life was fun here at Paro College you were the main reason behind it.  I know I haven’t nurtured our friendship enough..but U are an irreplaceable part of my life.. from running away from the hostel during lunch break, to sharing every little pocket money we had, eating chillis,  talking late nights , making fun of others (haha I remember Compound eye and chara”)by locking the room, do you remember how fan we are to
watch the action movies of Jet Li? We used to run from hostel and watch the movies. Eating marie biscuits without chewing during study hours. Dancing to our little secrets… too small to all the mischievous things we did , haha and those horlicks during exam times, nothing hidden between us.. I won’t say time changed, nor u or me… Maybe those moments were to be remembered like I did today and smile at every moment we lived life was so much fun being with u… As I look back now, those two girls sitting on the first bench..have lost within us… I would never really thank you for what u have given me in my life.. you are part of my heart.. Love u loads...I wish I could go back in time and live those moments again…
 I will miss you terribly and I can't help but to think with dread that our close-knit relationships will disintegrate and I really don't want that to happen. I understand that we might grow a part a little; it's only natural when people don't see each other for a while their relationships aren't quite as close. However, I'm definitely not ready to give up my family in the form of friends. So, a shout out to my friend...I love you and we have to keep in touch!
