Stress Level Up...




‎"What you start is often not what you want but it will definitely be worth your try." E.L.

I agree with you, Donk. So not going to whack you around with words. On a totally different topic, the month of May is the month of first semester exam. After so many years of teaching experience, I have to say that this year, I'm all stressed up due to a few reasons.Firstly, the students depend on me too much because they never pay attention in school. I expect them to pay attention in school and come to me to brush up what's still blunt. But then again, I'm usually faster than the school but now schools speed up so fast and if I go any faster, they learn nothing. So I have to go slow, go through tough questions and by the time I go through with so many things in the list, I'm 2 chapters behind. I'm as tired as the students. If given a choice, I would rather sit for their exam on their behalf, that will make things much more easier.Secondly, there are so many things to read up on. They have to read the Malay literature, English literature, History, Geography, some even with Chinese Language. Then, they need time to waste on Facebook, talk crap over the chatting network. I, on the other hand, have so many notes and answer sheets to prepare. I barely have time for anything. I need to breathe. I just wish the students will be more hardworking and not waiting to be spoon-fed. They become lazier as the years go by... or should I say as the minutes go by?Well... I think I should just sit back and relax. I prefer curling on my bed and reading instead of thinking whether they're going to survive the exams or not. *sigh* I place importance on them achieving good grades, flying colours if possible. But they don't seem to bother.... *double sigh* All the exams kill the joy of learning... I guess the school teachers worry whether the students will survive or not as well. That's why they're giving tips on what's gonna come out for the coming exam. Even the secondary school students are given exam tips...


In conclusion, they sit for exam while I sweat like a cow...
