I really can't help but come up with a post for this particular day of the year. It is the day when, after 2 months of waiting, secondary school grads step into the JC which they are posted to as a student.
Man, this really brings back memories from 2 years ago, specifically on 1st Feb 2009. Not that i remembered much about the Admin Days themselves, since recollections from Orientation Fortitude is totally overwhelming, but the simple journey taken at 6.30am (yeah, i was damn afraid that i would be late. The 40-odd other freshies that were on 81 with me probably had the same worry) from my house's bus stop to MJC is like my first milestone in Meridian Junior College.
One of my first few thoughts for Admin Day 1 was, "damn, these people are long-winded". That was thanks to sitting on the hall floor for somewhere around 3 hours listening to the various HODs and Principals give their speech. I was totally grateful that the first thing Ms Lai did when the mic was passed to her was to tell us to get up to stretch our legs. Score one for respect to her. Hahaha. xD
Apparently, i heard that my batch was the last batch they conducted demo lectures for. Seriously, how could they scrap demo lectures?! That's like so important! Mind you if there weren't any demo lectures for me i might have ended up taking Econs instead of Geog and 4 H2's of BCME instead. Imagine the horror.. o.0
On hindsight, i finally understood why they did not offer BCMG as a 4 H2 combi. The amount of things to memorise would be too much to take. Its a good thing Jansen and i pulled out of the appeal for that combi during course counselling with the Geog dept. If i had stuck on, that class would have been opened and i seriously doubt that my results would have been any rosier. I wonder how the 10S121 people with that combi are coping now..
Darn i'm already feeling kinda nostalgic right now.. =.=

Feb 9th is drawing closer and closer. I don't want to go into army, especially not when there are so many things and more importantly, people, that i have to leave behind. 3 weeks sounds awfully long all of a sudden. I don't think i will like army very much. =.=

The last post felt as if it was done ages ago, even if it was a mere difference of 12 days. The only explanation that i can think of is that work has made me lose track of the days. I swear its worse than school.
In school, the time table for each day is different and there are tutorials to look forward to (well yes, i actually look forward to my tutorials). At work, everyday is the same routine over and over again in that tiny meeting room. In school, there are PE lessons to burn my fats and make my muscles bigger (yes, that's right, bigger, meaning that they are already present in the first place). At work, i get bored easily and get fat when i eat to occupy myself. In fact, i was so bored, i went to the library to borrow a book on chemistry to read on the job so my neurons wont start degenerating from the lack of use.. =.=
I guess these are just one of the few reasons why i won't ever want to get stuck behind a desk in an office job. I'll just get fat and get bored to tears (not literally of course, but yeah, you get my point). A job that requires something thinking would be good, and teaching fits the bill perfectly. A different mental challenge everyday will prevent my brain from getting dusty. Sounds good, no?
Then again, all this is idealistic speculation. Who knows, i might even get bored of teaching soon after joining the force. Well, i guess that's life. People hardly get to do what they like, and those who manage to are the blessed minority. Hopefully one day, i can find my myself in that group. Only time will tell.. Damn that's corny. =.=
