Pieces of Me
If there’s one thing I have trouble writing about, it’s myself. People are jigsaw puzzles, and maybe this is hard for me because I haven’t found all my pieces yet. The ones I have right now, well, some don’t fit each other because those that connect them are missing. …

ACTIVITY 1: To ensure the smooth flow of our vacation, I thought of the ASDAL methods to be applied in planning based on the mind map and the checklist that I made in my previous post. ACTIVITY 2: I then shared the ASDAL methods with my classmate, Phoeboa, and we discussed it further.
