While there’s still time.

Salam everybody :)   It takes a tremendous effort to put my thoughts into words. Indeed, it has been awhile since I posted my last entry. It is not that I have not had ideas; I’m now minding my words that I wish to share in public. Knowing the fact that our life in this … Continue reading

There is no place like home

Hi everyone :) As all teachers are concerned, May is a month of examination. As I looked through the question paper consisting five questions in Continuous Writing section, I thought “Yeah, why don’t I give it a try?” and so I hurriedly grabbed a blue pen in my all-in-one blue handbag that shares similar functions … Continue reading

Monotony

Salam, I bid to those who still find my blog readable (I wouldn’t say appealing because  I know it will never be). I am aware of the huge time gap between the last post and this very post but I needed some quiet time to recharge my spiritual battery. AND it has been worthwhile. The sore … Continue reading

Thinking in binary.

Good evening. I took quite a long time thinking about my lesson plan. Finally, I decided to make the students write a journal entry. That can’t be too difficult for their level, can it? Plus, it ought to be interesting, because they’ll be writing about themselves, right? …Unless, they truly cannot produce their own opinions … Continue reading

A HEARTy supplement

Hi everyone. Life has been a bit hectic lately as teachers have a lot to plan and execute before the next term of school begins. Luckily, I am in no mood to write about the tasks that I’m assigned to. Why be unhappy and miserable narrating self-tormenting thoughts? Thus, let’s ponder over this running commentary … Continue reading
