It's Almost The Middle of August?!!

Wow. Time does fly very fast when you are older... Like wishing us to kick the bucket quicker so the younger people can take over. That's how I think anyway, though I prefer to live forever. From the movies; vampires, immortals who lived a very very long life were depicted to have very very boring lives too. They may travel, experiencing a lot, or just stuck inside caves for thousands of years... (I found travelling to be boring. That's why I don't like travelling far).
What the heck am I rambling about?

My pink netbook and my red wireless mouse. I can open my blog at school because we have a decent wifi in the staff room. Of course the wifi is filtered so we cannot open any other social media platform like Facebook or Instagram. Which is ok with me because my smartphone has a humongous amount of data to waste on FB and Youtube. I actually d prefer to read an actual book if I want to kill hours of my time. The smartphone isn't large enough to read comfortably. 
Why not get a tablet you say? I already have an IPad at home and I don't like to lug it around. 

This was taken on the last day of co-curriculum activity this year. The sun was shining bright and hot, and the students were required to sit in their respective clubs / societies to get their attendance. I do wished these people can move a lot faster. I am quite particular about time, and I have this tendency to look down upon tardy people.
But yesterday I heard somebody famous (and dead) quoted on tv; "Punctuality is the thief of time". 
I think its Oscar Wilde. Please rot in hell, that man.

And this is my car blocking the way to the front of the hostels before the rush.... Why? Because I just feel like it. By blocking the way, the parents had no other choice, and they will drop off their children faster, the goodbyes shorter because of the accumulating traffic behind.
(And the students never dared to ask me move my car at their parents behest)
A science teacher looks for easier ways in life.

It's exam time once again! And I am dreading to mark all that Science papers. All 88 copies, each 32 pages, by students of varied intelligence. Science and Maths... the two dreaded papers of lower secondary school. These papers are more difficult than most and to get As... it's a f**king miracle! (And that's coming from me who teaches Science!)

I'm a qualified art teacher, but never taught, but when I was doing teaching practice I loved marking the kids work, but I have to say, that would have been much easier than marking science exam papers. Good luck with that.

Just to let you know I am following you, but for some reason my avatar doesn't show up in your followers list!

:) Marking art is rather easy. And i will categorize it as pretty, mediocre and utterly hideous, hahaha!

Ramzu Zahini said...

Thank you. Will follow you too.
I am surprised you have time to manage 3 blogs :P

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Hahahahaha, you and your car, you little devil! Have fun marking all those exams, ugh.

Abby said...

88 32-page exams! Pace yourself. In my work as a teacher, grading is one of my least favorite activities. Math and science work is pretty straightforward, but how to tell them, "this essay is horrible!"
HaHa! Love your obnoxious car!

I didn't like grading papers when I was teaching. Especially ones that were subjective. I can't imagine having to grade 88 32-page exams!
Love that you thought to do that with your car. I needed a little bit of you in me while I was teaching. :)

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

HAHA! I had a good laugh with your car story. Okay, you finally convinced me that you are truly evil :)

Ramzu Zahini said...

Dear Debra;
Marking the tons of papers is no fun at all. But the evil in me always find an easier way...

Ramzu Zahini said...

Dear Abby;
Teaching is fun, grading paper is not so. But when i don't like a page or so, i'd cross a huge X on the paper to show my discontent on that domain.

Ramzu Zahini said...

Dear ShadowRun300;
I demand respect from all my students. I even disowned a few when they went against me (fortunately very few).
A vengeful teacher, now that's a new take in school life.

Ramzu Zahini said...

Dear Martha;
I bent the rules a lot. And I did many unexpected things. This amused some, and the rest are a bit fearful.
Now you can label me as fascinatingly evil.

As a fellow teacher, I empathize with you!

Hello, I always enjoy seeing your students at school. Do you see me smiling to them?
The exam photo makes me remember that I was never good at science at high school.
