Too much, too young, too fast

So much work, so little time.

Thanks to these administrative jobs I'm 'offered' 24 hours is no longer enough. On a normal day, I go to school around 10a.m and return home at 7, rest for a couple of hours and then back to school until 11p.m at the earliest. Overtime has simply become routine.

And the best part is that most of the so called 'work' I do doesn't even involve teaching. I barely have time to really sit and think how to teach in my next lessons. It really makes me rethink my line of profession. Am I a teacher, or am I a clerk? Maybe a teaching clerk??

Oh,I think the best answer is a zombie.

*Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast is a song that, if memory serves, performed by The Airborne. It's kind of messy but its alright. 3 stars

suefin: my prob is i have to do a lot of stuff which requires me to type in their names and it is a royal pain to do it again and again. abt ur ss, teach them to sing like zombies!

soya: hrm...kat tioman pun xde la bes mana, tp at least mungkin xde la awk jatuh2 motor dah. kesian =( nama 3 huruf je! mmg lebih senang. pastu masa daftar jgn letak bin atau binti. yosh!

ahseng: than the 4th will be seng. thts 4 letters so a perfect fit. haha. i wish i could just burn all these paperworks, but i'd just get burned doing so, so id rather not. sigh...

i feel u najibu. I have the same problem too here.

sometimes, I just ignore the unnecessary things like "can't use liquid paper if you write the names wrongly in the register"... hell yeah, i just type it once in my laptop, print it out, paste it. now I'd never use liquid paper, would i? i know the GPK will surely roll his eyes if he ever check my register, but I just don'y give a damn anymore haha.

and oh, it solves the long malay names as well ( u know by changing the font to size 9) haha.

Sounds like you're quite busy with teaching, and now I understand why you're in zombie mode. What subject do you teach by the way?

najibu said...

nozi: the prob isn't the about space, its the length of the names that is.

bem: i'm teaching English. 'quite busy' is putting it lightly.. and whoever says that teachers have it easy has no idea what they're talking about..
