Teacher's Day: The Sequel

                     May 15th, Teacher's Day in both Mexico and South Korea. Although I'd written about this before, I'm giving myself the pleasure of writing about it again, because every year you get new experiences. Some you will love, others you will hate, but trust me, a good teacher will always work hard to get you forward. They have a lot to go through, like our inevitable stupidity. 

-Jimmy, why are you looking down at your crotch and smiling? 

                     Now, this year I've learned many things, but aside from the academics, teachers have shown me what hard work can get you. We should always have the utmost respect for any professor, because they're here to build our character, which will guide us through thick. 

They also show style, like professor badass.

                     If you have any teacher you know and love, give her some chocolates, a flower, I don't know, anything you want, something that will show them how much you appreciate them, because let's face it, if it weren't for teachers, most of us would be on the streets, shouting about, stealing candy from babies with smart parents. So yeah, thank you guys for everything you've taught me. 
School is for chumps! Leave it and someday you'll be like me!
                    Matter of fact, my mom's a teacher, and damn it if it isn't hard work. Trust me, it's not something that simply involves grading. It also means being somebody to be there for them, because if a kid can't rely on his/her parents, they go to their teachers or closest friends. Also, my mom's always giving tutoring in the afternoon, she has book clubs, so, yeah, it's a full time job. Seriously, happy teacher's day to each and every master out there.

Mother's Day (200th Post!)

                     So, today's a very special day, for all those women who gave us births, taught us to be who we are, kept pushing us to school, and did everything they could to make us feel special. Every single day, every day, these women work to help us move ahead in life, educating us, feeding us, giving us shelter, and loving us with all their hearts (that's cheesy, but it's Mother's Day). 

                    I still remember how my mother used to take me everywhere, school, classes, out with friends, and I can't thank her enough for everything that she's done for me. I can let her know I love her, though, and that's what this blogpost is about. Thank you, Mom, for all that you've given me, I know I can't pay it back, but I'll be damned if I don't raise my kids like you raised me. 

                     Now, for the rest of you, go, give your mother's a few big hugs, fill them with chocolates, give them flowers, sing them a song, whatever, it might be late but you could still pull it off tomorrow. Also, this is my blog's 200th post, so, for all of you that have read it all, congratufuckinglations, and I sure as hell won't stop on 200.
