Just like the million others who is living under the same sky, I'm just trying to find that significant one to write my own fairy tale stories...

Another 2 weeks had past before i have the chance to sit down and blog about my life. Or what is left of my life.

School has been reopened for a month and yet i don't even know what i have been doing. All i realised is that i have been staying late for endless meetings and meetings and school events and meeting endless deadline for.... for what? I can't even remember what i was busy about. But more importantly, it is taking my time away from the preparation of my lessons. I dun want to be a OHT/PPT teacher. Brrr....

I have been thinking about the word responsibility recently. It is such a heavy word. I want to be a responsible teacher but i want to be a responsible daughter, a responsible friend too. I felt sorry for the single teachers in my school. I mean, if you are single by choice, i would salute these people. Independence is great. But if you are single by work, then i really think that it is pathetic. I do not want to be so busy with work that i have no time for dating. I wanna get married eventually and have kids and a great family life.

I do not want to be constantly reminded by others and myself that i'm guilty of not working because i spent a saturaday afternoon on movies or hang around with my friends. Is it a crime not wanting to work for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Who am i? Am i the teacher who have to work very very hard, giving up on all other activities because that is my responsibilities or am i the C**** who wishes to have a life outside work? I don't want to be so consume by students. I felt like i'm drowning in it and i'm barely able to keep myself afloat.

The workload is crazy, the heads are not helping. Just tell me what could be worse...

All right, thinking on the positive side. The only good thing right now is that i have a new boss and she is much better than the old one. If only i could change some other people.. Hmmm..

The Untitled

A month after my last entry, i finally had the time to sit down and post this new one. There are so many things that i wanna talk about. I wanna talk about the food poisoning incident which occurs during my trip (that leads to a drastic weight loss). I wanna talk about my new year resolutions and the first week of school.

But you know, sometimes when you drag too much, you tend to get lazy and doesn't wish to write anymore.

All right, i shall try.

Food poisoning

My trip was actually pretty good, except that on the last few days, i was down with food poisoning. The vomitting part wasn't fun at all and that totally spoilt the trip for me. Imagine being in Hong Kong (the food city!) and not able to eat anything at all. My only memory of Hong Kong is the hotel (which i spent two full days!) that i stay in and the hospital that i had visited. Honestly, i thought i was dying when my friends sent me to the hospital. 2 whole days without food nor water.. That was a horrible experience.

New Year Resolutions

This year, i wanna
  1. get my driving license! I know i have been saying it for many years but i swear i will get the license this year.
  2. save money! I think i have just spend way too much last year..
  3. be a better teacher.
  4. take care of my health. After the incident during my trip, i came to realise that health is indeed very important. I don't like the feeling of staying in bed and restraining from food..

First week of school

The first week of school was C.R.A.Z.Y!!!!! Every single day was packed to the max during lesson time and after school there was more work to do. All the teachers had to stay in school till it closes for the 1st two days and on Friday itself, all of us went home at a record time of 10pm. That was not to mention that we are all supposed to arrive in school the next day at 8am. It was no wonder that MC rate this week was extremely bad.

Now that the second weekend is coming, all i want to do is to have a good sleep. But i'm due to join my department for farewell dinner later. Sigh.. When can i have my sleep?

P/S: I nearly forgot.. There is one good thing about the food poisoning incident. That is i have lost lot of weight. So much so that i can parade in my skinny tight jeans to those who had laughed at my weight during the contact time last Dec. Let's just say, revenge is really sweet!
