My Education Was Not Wasted

"Sayang yung pinag-aralan, ang agang nabuntis"

"Sayang siya, kung sana ginamit niya yung utak niya, di sana nakapagtapos siya ng pag-aaral"

These are just a few words I heard from other people when I get pregnant at a young age.

They would say that my education was put to waste because when I get pregnant, I won't use it anymore. If I get pregnant, those learnings will just be buried and never be put to use.

I get affected by those words they spoke. I became shy to face other people, in short, those words they speak out makes me lose my self-confidence to face others.

But after many times of hearing them, I get used to it. I learn to ignore them and just focus on myself and my baby.


Did my education put to waste?

It's a big no, in fact up to now, I am still using it. I am applying it in my daily life.

When I was in high school, I studied in a private institution where it was managed by nuns. We are molded with many values such as Godliness, Cleanliness, Self-Discipline, etc.

In terms of studies, every year level, we are taught different vocational courses like dressmaking, using the manual sewing machine, and high-speed sewing machine. We are taught to make our uniforms too.

Though I don't excel in those areas, those things that I learned are used today. Whenever there are ripped clothes/jeans, I sew them so they will still be useful. Sometimes those clothes that I haven't used are converted by making short pants for my kids.

Bookkeeping?

We are taught about this for three months only. Those lessons are still fresh on my mind. Whenever I am computing our daily expenses, making a budget, and doing inventory on where our money goes, I feel like I was back on those times when our teacher let us do the balance sheets.

Culinary?

Way back when I was still on my third-year level, we were taught baking some cakes but so sad I wasn't interested that time. It's now that I realize how important it is to be attentive to the teacher but even if I didn't learn many things, I still am grateful that I got little knowledge about baking. I also learned how to cook pancakes.

In my fourth year, we were told to choose what vocational course we would focus on. I chose consumer electronics. We were taught how to repair cellphones and do some wiring in some appliances. Those cellphones that we repair were just the old Nokia phones.

Last 2018, the speaker on my phone got damaged. I can't play music so I tried disassembling it and tried to check what was wrong. After disassembling it, I saw that one of the wires that were connected to the speaker was separated. I immediately get the soldering iron and connect it again.

Last 2019, our rice cooker was damaged, it suddenly doesn't function at all. After checking it, I now knew what was wrong, it's the fuse. Buying a fuse is another expense for me, so I searched a video on YouTube for an alternative way so I won't spend a penny. A saw a video where I just need to put a wire in both ends of the fuse. After watching that's what I did and viola, the rice cooker is now okay.

There are still many things that I have done that I thought I can't but because I am willing to apply all those that I learned, I let myself explore and applied all those knowledge that I acquired.


That's all for now! Thanks for reading up here!

You don't need to listen or give attention to negative opinion of people about you because no matter how good you are some people will still not like you so just do your thing and make sure everything you do is what makes you happy. Positive energy brings out positive results.

Some people really love to judge and they think that pregnancy is the end of education, when in fact it's a continuous process. They didn't know that what we learned in school can be applied in real life and it will never be wasted even if time passed by. Don't mind them nalang po. Their karma will come, soon...

It's good that you didn't let the comments of other people get to you. One thing I believe is that no knowledge is a waste, and our education can always be applied to everything we do everyday. Your education is not a waste, you're clearly applying it be fixing broken appliances in your home which a lot of people won't be able to do

Don't mind those people that blabbing around you they just want to boost their self cause they know someone made a mistake in the past. It's normal in society, the most important thing is do not fight them back, show them that they are wrong and prove to them that you can succeed in life. Anyway I don't know anything about technical vocational but i know something about seeing and of course cooking cause in the chef here at house.
