I am ringing in this year with open arms but not attaching any string. I reckon every year is little better than the last. So, I'm pretty much sure this year is gonna be better too. I will go with the flow with out looking at past. Living one day at a time. Just want this year to be filled with peace, prosperity and love. Keeping it real. That is it.
Also, not gonna make any hard core resolution because I never keep them. I forget or what, I don't know. That is why there is no point of making resolution if I can not keep them.
Back to work after winter break. So good to see my tiny miny adorable 34 students once again. In my early days I was dreading each and everything :The class.The kids. They were so outta my control. At first, I ain't that commanding like my co-worker, Mrs K.She is Montessori trained and have some 12 year experience with such small children. She do magic when she teaches.
She also trained me how to control them. I am copying her style and tone since last three months. Have been succeed some how. "Miss..... Miss, he hit me." "Miss, she peed in her uniform." "Miss....Miss, she is no more my friend." " Miss...Miss, he wants to marry, Shela." "Miss, he called me potty."
Shelly is every boys darling. Teri meri prem kahani is class anthem. If one starts humming it, then all 34 will sing it together in chorus.
All day their voices echo in my ear. Don't ask what happen in lunch time. Class is a mess. Before I just wanted to slap them but now very patiently I do listen them.You peeps have now idea how hard is to teach in pre -school. It need oodles of patience and tolerance.
This job has taught me a lot, in many ways. It is definitely not what I wanted to do. But no complains. Something is better than nothing. Also trying to tap in university. Lets see. Hoping for best. With the passage of time I am getting mix into. Now I love them. Despite all that their talks are so innocent. Their friendship is so unconditional. Kids are angel.
I am no more using bus. I reckon Chingchi rickshaw is better option. School is not that far and buss takes some 20 minutes. Its route is pretty long. While in Chingchi rickshaw, it is pretty straight and I also get chance to do some walk. OK, see, if I go by bus, it will take some 20 minutes, 5 minutes in road crossing and just 5 minutes walk. So total timing 30 minutes.
If I take Chingchi rickshaw. It will drop me at Chawrangi in 5 minutes and from there some 10 minutes walk. Total timing 15 minutes. Another option is Auto rickshaw, which is outta my league. Just in September, its fare was 30 PKR now it has reached up to 60 PKR I ain't that nut who pay 60 bucks for not that long distance. Buss fare 10 and Chingchi rickshaw also 10, and I don't want to wait for Buss in cold either. So in retrospect Chingchi rickshaw rocks.
How do you reach to your work place, school, or any destination ?
