If you are my Facebook friend, Twitter follower, Tumblr follower, estranged acquaintance, classmate, former/current professor, and/or random lurker–do not get confused with the content of Cole Walks–you have come to the right place.
I have been talking about pursuing my graduate degree online, and the cool thing about it? One of the requirements is to maintain a learning blog. Since I have already invested in Cole Walks’ domain for another year (and my travel stats are plummeting by the minute), I have decided to make use of this space, and hopefully, would be able to share something more apart from travel and culture.
If you are a regular reader, do not be surprised if you stumble upon posts about Development, Social Mobilization, Social Marketing, or any topic that has something to do with social change–that means you have met my alter ego. I am down to my last two semesters with the University of the Philippines Open University under their distance learning program, and my days are filled with intellectual discourses, readings and write-ups that I may or may not be able to survive. But I will try.
On the other hand, if you are of esteemed academic relation, please do not get turned off with my personal posts/adventures/or topics of, or relating to my travel writing days (for example, the Nightlife in some territory). You can skip the gory details of my traveling side, as it is on hiatus, but if you want to know more about Laos, and the rest of Southeast Asia, a little about the Netherlands, about Project Digital Natives With A Cause(?), about confessions of a twenty-something, feel free to browse the dates located on your right-hand side–just in case you get bored with Facebook, or you are killing time while waiting for a classmate’s reply in the Discussion Boards of MOODLE.
This is just a friendly signposting as to how Cole Walks is moving this year. It still is the same old Cole Walks though, I still love telling stories. Enjoy reading!
