Vote Canvass

Election period is fast approaching. Every electoral candidates are making their move: doing some campaigns through political advertisement, ad posting, giving out fliers displaying their own backgrounds and experiences and of course their platforms.

Lately, I've been a volunteer in our place, counting those votes that are canvassed only for local candidates. Quite exhausting but since I have nothing to do with my present life status right now then I still enjoyed it. Well I can also say that I am doing good with this thing because I am trying to expose myself (not politically) preferably I want to term it as 'social involvement'. Not to mention who gets the big number of votes but as one of the concerned citizen in my country, I do hope that this incoming election with use of automated machines, that it would lessen the chance of cheating. I would like to call it as lessen because it's hard for me to say and or even use the word eliminate.

Let us vote wisely people. This is not only for individual interests but for our common good.

As an Enrollee in Social Work

During my first year in college, I am not originally enrolled as a social work student, since I gave myself a shot and took a business course. I have gotten enough grades with my subjects and passed all. Unfortunately, I got this feeling that if ever I would have to pursue this business study, I won't be that satisfied and happy. I got confused and even felt stressed thinking what should I needed to do and what course should I took. I asked for advices and even offered prayers for a divine intervention and hoped that things would be clear for me.
I scanned the course list of our school, then courses such nursing, education, and social work filled my tiny paper and I considered them as my choices. Looking through these courses, I felt I was neither in line with medical studies nor in education and became a teacher. Crashing out those two courses, social work was the only one left in my list.
Honestly, I did not have enough information about social work course and what kind of profession was that be. I just have that kind of urge and strong interest that I might be destined with this course.
When i finally made the decision to take social work, I never doubted to grab a copy of a shiftee form and worked on it and apply to another program which my school offers (the Social Work Program). There I started to have this feeling of excitement that I am in a new field and entering into in a one-of-a-kind course.
