It's been a very long while since I wrote here. I have so many things in my mind that I need to get it out some. I need the fun of writing.
Last June was my school holiday and I spent it with.........almost heart broken.. ^^ but I can get over it and when July started it's like I have a completely new life here. I move to the new place for my job. I teach at the place that I longing for to be with since years ago. I teach at Tzu Chi School now. Last three years, when it has just started, I have tried to apply here. I did the 1st interview. It was still at ITC. But, when they called for the 2nd interview, I had signed my new contract t the previous school. I didn't really bother actually at that time. Then, last year, I didn't try to apply since I didn't really want to try new place but I did wanna quit from the previous school last year until they offered me a new position as the Head of Teacher and it challenged me so I took the job. Soon, I regretted it. Then, this year I took the chance to apply again from internet and I got called. It was after the flood disaster I did my first interview. Then, one came to another. The most interesting part for me was the interview with the BOD. There were 5 of them that asked me questions but I didn't feel like it was an interview and I did it in 3 languages, Chinese, English, Hokkian. They might forget about me already but I still remember that moment. Then, here I am a new teacher at this school. I started at July 1st 2013 and since that day, seems like I lose myself. I feel like I am having a new me.. hufff.... I have no time to read, which is I did a lot before. I can't have tuition anymore. I can't really feel my body as normal as before coz what I feel is only pain here and there. I barely like a zombie every weekdays especially in the morning. The working loads are like crazy. I teach Math and Science for 24 periods/ week, have 5 classes to teach plus a form teacher. At the beginning, I barely just home for sleep. I can't really feel my food and on weekend it was like......heaven. HAhaha.. sounds too much! but that's what I feel. Buuuuuuttttttttt....so far I never feel like I'm regret to join here. I still enjoy the work, start and already love my students. They are angels but also the demons.. :) Everyday my students are challenging to me. They just can turn my day upside down. However, I just hope I really can give the best I can here. I can give the students something in their life. Though they are still at the very young age and soon they'll forget about me but I hope I can plant a good seed in their mind and heart so they can pass it on one day. :)
Never ever crossed in my mind that at this time I can be a teacher before. I was not a good student before.Personally, I am not the type of a meticulous person, not a very patience one, I'm careless and sometimes lazy to start something but in this job, I just like trying to be a better me as a teacher, but when I'm back to my own private life, I am just the enjoy being Me.. However, I still need to find my own rhythm in my life so I won't be like this anymore.. I need few more months to adjust myself. Wish me LUCK!
