The Heartache

Oh... the pain...
when the aesthetics you bring were not appreciated.
Like colours to a black and white canvas, beautiful yet hard to understand.
Like religion, from one to another.
Like music, composed but not heard.
Like a story, penned but not read.
Oh... the pain...
when the wall between them and what you see is a thin veil,
sewn with threads of complexity yet soft to the touch.
When they heartily laugh at what you think should inspire them,
and stare you in the face, blank and unfazed.
How do you break down a wall, when all you have is a cloth and nothing more?
I start wiping, but to when will the wall crumble, only time can tell...

my pace

for once, got my pace right!
sacrificed a lil time off my schedule... plan n re-plan my sleeping time, which just kept being postponed.
But guess what?! I got work done and the postponing of my sleep time should be worthwhile!
Now just need a pace for marking papers n books.

On the edge

from falling into the valley of death...
Or perhaps am already falling?
There is so many spaces for improvement, I don't even know where to begin!!
I am weak in many aspects, especially time management.
I have a schedule, but not fully committing to it. @_@
My kids need me and I am not being responsible enough...
My teenage irresponsible self is back to haunt me and she is taking over!
M.u.s.t. f.i.g.h.t. b.a.c.k.!

My kids fuel me!!!

Non-academic analysis. I like to think of this as a refilling of "fuel" for what I am now doing.
I am starting this "on-book" conversations with my kids now. It is also a nice way to help me keep my kids occupied when they finish their practices quick.  They write how they feel about getting their answers correct during guided practice. These are some of those who wrote to me. I shall reply them as I mark their assessments in their books. How cool is that?! A conversation with the teacher, in their books! And the teacher replies!
It's like Tom-Riddle's diary in Harry Potter!! In a good way of course...
They got it now, hopefully they really show mastery in their assessment too!

This is what drives me! Knowing they actually understood what I taught and like Maths because they now know that they can master it. Because of them, I shall strive more. For they will be the one running the world soon and the world should be a better place, for you and for me...

Simple pleasures in life IX

46. Sunsets - Love the hue in the sky during this time of the day. The last glow of light before nighttime comes along.
Sunset captured from SMK Juasseh

Sunset in Puchong, Selangor
47. The moon. Elegant yet powerful.
48. Looking at a starry starry night sky.
49. Knowing you are prep for the next day, whatever comes.
50. A comforting conversation with family or friends.
