First Day At Work

By Rahman Pauzi

And it started rather weirdly, if you have read my last few entries you would know that the principal actually wanted me to start next month (July). But instead I got a call this morning, around 7 am from my uncle he said that I have to start work today. I was going hah? hah? then ok ok
I already missed my bus that is supposed to be at 7am. Had to take a cab, only arrived at school around 8. the case of the late teacher ehhehe. It was lucky that sunday is the “hari perhimpunan” so me being late wasn’t really noticed. First day maaa.. give me some slack…
Was lepaking half the day without doing anything, first of all because I have no schedules yet, and afterward after being given the schedules I saw that I already missed a class. Only managed to get to 2 classes today. Did the necessary intro. Short intro though, I wasn’t really in the mood to talk and the students didn’t really warmed up to me. So I gave them time off today. With the promise of some heavy learning tomorrow, as if :p Nota apa tarak ni weiii, need to get myself some textbooks quick. Guess I’ll have to do some vocab building exercises.. or something… if I don’t get it tomorrow.
A senior teacher requested that I be extra strict this time around, because they had a good time under the last teacher. No homework for 2 months.. good for them 😀 So I donned my garang look today. Managed to quiet down the class easily that way. Oh well they’ll see eventually I’m not of the garang type. Just another crazy old fella. :devil:
Oh well I need to get some shut eye….
