when i was small, when anyone asked my what I wanna be when I grow up. My straight forward answer will be 'I want to be a teacher when I grow up'. now holding a degree in this field, I haven't started teaching yet. I’ve somehow diverted myself to experience something else apart from teaching. While waiting to get stamped and posted to teach at some place that God knows where (oh god, cepatla posting), I’ve started working elsewhere in a company doing accounts and office work. Although it's only a part time job but still I have to wake up early and deal with the morning traffic everyday. The best thing that led me towards working at this place was because the pay was good. $$. yes, i get lots of money. More than the permanent employees as they have to pay loans and etc while I don’t. kakakaaa..

On my first day at work I was a bit scared as I wasn’t sure about the working environment and all. Then everyone there seems to be so nice and friendly, plus there wasn’t much work to do. At first I thought that I’ll receive tons of work to do (you know how some companies treats new employees) but it turns out to be I’ve practically no work at all. From my first day until now, it seems like more than 2 months and still I haven't got much to do.. my daily routine would be like: wake up early in the morning, go to work, make sure the boss sees me everymorning, sit at my desk, switch on the computer, surf online (act as if I’m busy), arrange the files and stuff on my table, key in data (once a week), when it’s about time slowly find the exit door and go home. Hehee..

It's not like I like being useless. It’s just that I have no work to do. I’ve not been given anything complete. Working in these departments is so not challenging as being a teacher. I get so bored just sitting there at my desk. When I get bored, I go and make myself a cup of coffee (to avoid myself from sleeping). This working experience makes me wonder whether to continue working here and make lots of money or teach, with less income but doing the thing I like. A teacher's work it is very challenging as compared to this one. There's no 'hard work' put into this job. Everything is like easy peasy.. so while i was lazing around at the office, I was wondering why jobs like these get lots of money than teachers? It’s just not fair. I think teachers should be paid more. They have to stand all the time in class meanwhile people at the office sits a lot. Office mates often wastes their time and saliva gossiping and talking while teachers spend their time appropriately teaching students. I think teachers should be paid more as being a teacher is difficult and tiring. All I can say that teaching is far more challenging than this occupation. At least your teaching style varies, not like office work where you’re doing the same thing over and over again. accounts. accounts. accounts.. arrgghh.. it's unchallenging and so boring...

i think that I’m suffering from a symptom of knowledge deficit as I’m kinda getting some sort of bored by each passing day. I should get back to teaching so that my iq and knowledge increases again. If you want to make your life more interesting, test yourself in different level of difficulties and try being a teacher with 26 period a week. this will certainly make your brain functioning well.
I'm not complaining, I just miss teaching.
