Why Are You Here?

Warning : If you are caught using my writing as a basis for your Pernyataan Hasrat, don’t blame me if you don’t get into the course. Get a valid reason or else drop the idea of being a teacher at all!
Why are you here? why did you join up? why do you want to be a teacher?
Those are among the questions that will be asked during the interview and later on by your lecturers. Trust me when I say that the interviewers are much more forgiving when it comes to you giving stupid answers as they are just going to fail you with a smile (yes the interviewers usually smile all the way through the interview which is unnerving.)
The lecturers on the other hand are not as forgiving, cut the crap of serving your nation (berkhidmat utk bangsa agama dan negara). Most of them will smile and afterward bang u real hard for trying to lie to them. Don’t tell them u really believe in serving, they know you are actually lying and it is actually because of the perks a teacher will get. Just tell them the truth and u might get out of it unscathed.

Test What Test?

Yeah I took a test, some of you might know what it is. Anyway it was the MTeST. The test is for those who wants to do KPLI. 2 and a half hour of sweating. Saw some frustrated ppl after the test. Seriously, the questions were a bit tough. Even had some analytical questions, equivalent to IQ tests. Thankfully I managed to pull through. I don’t think I’ll even get near to a 100 for it though (azya jgn berlagak Razz ).
Anyhow, I only got to know that there was a textbook for it the day before the test. And it was by chance… My mom was chatting with a relative over the phone and the topic of me going to go for the test came up and he responded by saying that his son got a copy of the textbook as he is also sitting for the test. So we went over to have a look at the sample questions and textbooks. (5 of em!) Perghhh the question was very tricky… thankfully the real one wasn’t that tricky. But I couldn’t get a copy of the textbook as it was friday and all the shops are closed (note: This is Kelantan not KL) and he was still reading the books.
And yes, I am serious about making teaching my career. Why not, it’s a noble profession. And I like working with people, beats the crap outta my stagefright. (yes I used to have stagefright). And it’s fun! ehehehe
After the test, I went to KB to buy a new UPS. Now I’m not worried about blackouts anymore. Previously my house had problems with multiple blackouts in a week, and I was worried that my Hard-disks might get fried because of it. Problem solved… I hope.
