-When people annoy you, I find it is best to try and remember something that makes you laugh. Like today someone annoyed me to the point where I wanted to lamp the bugger. So, I casually remembered that when my Nani gets pissed with one of us for talking during her StarPlus time slot, she waves her cane in our face and says “ae bhai, shush.” She looks and sounds so comical, its hard not to laugh.
– ’tis the season to be jolly fra la la la la la la la la… ’tis also the season of finding out you are your students’ least fave teacher lol. During Christmas kids give gifts to their fave teacher. I went from being one of the most ‘gifted’ members of staff to the least in 5 years. Trust me, I am happy about this transition mostly coz kids either raid their mum’s jewellery box for gifts or buy you expired chocolates from the corner shop owned by the uncle who never re-stocks anything. I would much rather they make me a card.
-BUT I find it fascinating when its the kids I reprimand the most who buy me gifts. I don’t even know why or how. We clash and bicker but its always the ones that give me grief who give me gifts and I kind of love that. I said to one, “you got me something? I thought you hated me *awkward laugh* ” She told me it was because I spent 5 minutes of my own lunch asking her if she was okay one day when she looked really upset even though I was in a terrible mood myself lol. I barely remember this incident but I love little bonds that are formed without you realising it…
-Always be kind ya’ll – you never know who’s life you are impacting. It’s the little things. I aim to be kind in all situations. Doesn’t always work coz humans… but the key is to try, na?
-I have decided to semi document my upcoming trip to turkistan on my insta stories. I dont want everyone to have access to it though because… reasons. Luckily Insta does this close friends thing now which is a story you can share with a select few folk only. So yeah. That is what I shall be doing – mood depending innit. Not sure I will be documenting it on whatsapp stories tbh too many unwanted eyes on there so if you wanna watch me drink tea in another location to where I normally do, dm me and I shall add thee to the secret society. If you have better things to do with your time then please proceed.
-I really should sleep. Work won’t screw itself up tomorrow will it. Sigh. Night ya’ll x
