Yesterday was our 2012 “This is it!!!” day, because it signaled the beginning of our annual two-month nerve-wracking, fatigue-inducing, weight-losing, yet fun-filled summer, a.k.a., the start of our annual UPCAT Review!
Before I divulge what I wore on that momentous (momentous daw o!) day, I’ll let you in on a secret. See, I want my students’s first impression of me to be mala-Cruella DeVille. I want to appear fabulous, fierce and fearsome all at the same time. This way, I will automatically command respect from my students. And when I already establish that “Don’t you dare!!!” impression, the real Ma’am Dew is unraveled: more fabulous, fiercer, yet not THAT fearsome. Hehe.
So, OK, let’s get back on track.
Since it was a cold day yesterday and because I wanted to appear fearsome, I wore a black jumpsuit that my sister-in-law Ruth once described as “pangkontrabida”.
So just how much of a villainness did I look like? Here:
Do you think I successfully instilled fear into my students when they first saw me yesterday? I sure hope I did!
