Academe: A Dream in Progress

     Not so long ago, I dreamed of entering the academe. It was not a good choice for the majority. But for me, it was one of the nicest and selfless decisions I had made. One thing that convinced me to enter the academic world was my belief that teaching is my simple share towards nation-building. It was such a noble belief I had there, which made me desire more to become an academician.

     Now, my simple dream has finally became a reality. I am now an academician and I teach architecture. I started this career last June of 2013 and since then, I became a much better person. It was a blessing, indeed, to finally see myself in a whole new perspective wherein I work not just for my own good, but for the common good of everyone. And even though there are a lot of sacrifices to take, I still am grateful for this career.  

     As of the moment, my journey as an academician is still in progress. And I don't see any reason to stop because I still need to pursue effectiveness. Being a teacher without the value of being effective is useless at all. And for me to become effective, all I need to do is to hone aspiring architects. 
     I need to exert a lot of effort and patience in molding my students into warriors. I need to prepare them for their battle as they face life's challenges and surprises. I do need to inculcate in their hearts the value of becoming selfless. And lastly, I need to reshape their perspective for them to know what they are capable of. I need to do all of these simply because... I have a dream. I am dreaming of developing great architects, young achievers, and new generation of nation-builders.

I am an academician... and this is my dream.
