Back in the saddle again

I've been away from school for a week, attending a course. Today I'm back --- to waking at 6 am, not wearing jeans all the livelong day, and being engulfed by uniform-clad teenagers. At 7:30 am, the humidity had already thickened to a skin-crawling miasma and the rest of the day yawned impossibly long.

I murdered my way through two classes of comprehension assignments over the weekend, but this morning realised that there were two other sets of assignments that I'd completely forgotten about. So despite my diligence, I still have five more classes of assignments to grade within the next week or so. This is the part about being a teacher that nobody likes.

If anyone would like to entertain me at Starbucks over the next few evenings, SMS or email me. It's gonna be a long push till next weekend...

hmm. i bet your weekend wasn't that entertaining with all the scripts. mine wasn't.

yep, the heat was amazing. even my kids couldn't take the mid-morning heat by the time recess came.

amusing to see the most boisterous the most subdued.

gecko --- Heat is bad enough. Heat and marking? Jia lat.

stellou --- It's Starbucks because it's near where I live. Very leh cheh to go all the way to town for either Toast or Blood Cafe during the week lah ... Btw, Blood Cafe is apparently finally opening the full restaurant they promised us late last year, so hopefully it'll be open by the time you're back in town.

wanderer --- Hee hee hee.
