Feeling a little reluctant, I joined my church mates to catch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The reluctance came from the tiredness I would experience after the movie because later at night I have choir practice. Still, I went ahead anyway

It was, I think, the best movie in 2016. Perhaps on par with Civil war hehe. but man, this movie was so so good. Since the 7th installment of Harry potter ended eons ago, I've stored the harry potter jargon and its characters way back in my memory space. But this movie, they throw the jargon in their speech like *snap* *snap* so fast. And i found myself gasping and uttering, "ooooh so she's related to bellatrix lestrange", and "oooo that's (a) squib/auror/Grindelwald". love it. These references made a tiny electric jolt in my system. Ahhh i will always love Harry potter. The best trilogy i've read in my lifetime. 

And the feels in this movie!! I can't even. I shed a tear or two :'(  So so sad because I have a soft spot for the misfits because I was one of em too (surprise surprise) in my own way. Now looking back, why did I even bother fitting myself, a square peg in a freakin round hole? cant square pegs just stand out on our own and be ourselves? Why should people shun/mock us for being different? And whose standards are we measuring ourselves to? The round holes? But, who appointed them to be the "standards" anyway? Why should square pegs seek approval from round holes? Who're the round holes to call the shots? ... meh. 

All in all, this movie is worth watching. You won't regret it, trust me. Great plot twist at the end. I was like, "Huh?? Wow! no way!" :D enjoy!

going against the current

Hear me out, judge me not.

The more I immerse myself in the system, the more I see its flaws and question certain actions done by certain people. 

When passing by students, why do teachers ignore students' greetings i.e. good mornings/good evenings? To show who is more superior/inferior? but students deserve a reply and they deserve to be respected too. there are many more instances of teachers' actions that I question but i can't think of any now. but when those happened, I just felt off and questioned why did that teacher act that way. I found no logical explanation that supported how that teacher acted, although it may be the norm among teachers to do so.

Although I'm just a novice in the system, I believe I have the right to question and not take in things at face value. And believe me when I say this; I'm a rebel when it comes to doing things that are not founded on a solid ground of logical explanations. I believe in my own beliefs and I'm not afraid to rebel against the norm, with a condition that the norm is deploying actions that doesn't make sense. 

Why? Because I realized that it is time to question things and use my logical reasoning instead of blindly following the herd. Sigh. just my two sense. dont get me started on the whole umbrella of a system that is just so, so twisted. 

But imma stick it out and be the agent of change amidst complacency where my goal is to teach students and help them see they are worth it.
