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...

What exactly is the correct and proper way to dress for work?

How should I start?

The incidents that happened yesterday and this morning helps me made up my mind about leaving the service after my bond is up. I still have passion for the job but the other areas of the job are driving me crazy. That shouldn’t be the way to work. I want to be me, not a rat running aimless in a rat race.

Sometimes, it can be so disheartening although the kids do help to perk me up. But it just isn’t enough. I do not mind being busy but it has to be justifiable. If one person is doing most of the job while the rest are going home early, then that is NOT justifiable. The ironic thing is, at the end of the day, the rats that are leaving early everyday get the honour while the working ants remain unseen. It would be a blessing if the working ant doesn’t get the blame. I HATE the workplace. I don’t think I have ever felt so miserable in a workplace before. I kept trying to find ways to like the environment and yet everyday, there will be new things to pop up and frustrates me.

I want to work in a place where the heads are concern towards their subordinates, not being indifference. A simple statement like “This is your personal problem so I cannot help you” tells a lot about how much they care for us. What is so personal about my workload that they cannot help me with? What is the use of having a RO when that RO doesn’t even care if you are dying from overwork or your health is failing because you can’t even get proper rest from sickness? I really pity my colleague who had just lost her baby. People are more concern about when is she coming back for work, than her emotional status. I feel like shouting “HELLO! We are living things with EMOTIONS! Can you people stop treating us like we are equipments that have to work non-stop despite having mechanical problems?”

ARRGH!!! This is so frustrating. What a way to start my 14th of Feb. Now I will probably end up showing a black face to my date tonight.

Allow me to complain a little bit more.

I was told that my attire was too causal today. So I asked a few colleagues which part of my attire is causal and they were stunned. So it is ok to dress sexily but it is not ok to wear sleeveless top. So I can come to work the next time with a mini-skirt but I cannot come to work in my green top. It is not that I want to wear this top but they wanted us to wear green top and that is my only green top! If I don’t wear green, they will say that I’m anti-social, and when I do now, it is my fault too. So I’m supposed to buy a brand new green top for today? What about some others who always wear like they are going clubbing? So that is ok?

Just because that person looks good in her sexily clothes so no one is telling her off? Since when it is ok for us to wear mini-skirt to school to teach? Since when it is ok for us to wear super tight clothing to show off our figure? Are we teaching or are we modeling to the students? Why is it that no one is telling her off but they are picking on everyone else?

Stupid double standard.

    Has been following your blog for quite sometime. Seems like you are complaining too much. You are in the education line,which makes you stand out from the rest. You job is to nuture the next generation and the sad thing is, you chose this line. It is just a sleeveless top, you got better thing to do, right.

    If you think i'm complaining too much, you can DON'T read it. No one is forcing you right? Just like i have the right to write anything in MY blog.

    If you can open your eyes bigger and read it, i was saying that why no one bothers to correct the other teacher who was wearing a mini-skirt to school as if that was the correct and proper attire.

    So yes, it is only a sleeveless top and i honestly don't know what is your problem.
