Who on earth says Cable TV is good? I so want to bash up ur face.
Argh….!!! Stupid laptop.. I almost fought with it last night la.. Suddenly error in saving. Wa, I almost jumped up and wanted to wrestle with it la…..
Den this morning have to edit the test paper and project handout like for 2straight hours! I didn’t even hear the bell la. And normally I’ll be hungry around 930am. But I was so busy and frustrated in the editing that I’m not hungry, even til now la. AH!!!
But I’m really glad tt my two CTs are really helpful and good in helping me out. AND, there’s absolutely no sarcasm here. They do for both students and me. Haiz.. N they’ve given me lots of tips (not the $$$ kind) and suggestions for me to improve on. Which is good. Cos I’ve improved quite a lot from my messy teaching to my more confident and more organised teaching. During school experience, even though I get to teach a class by myself, technically speaking though, I’ve never been alone like by myself in a class, teaching. Here, I get to do so. Here, I get to face students and situations by myself. Hahaha… I think I’ll miss teaching alone when the Observation Month (aka, April) starts. Now, this is what I call real teaching.
Haiz…. Why NIE give us crappy courses that we dun really get to use instead of teaching us how to do formatting of worksheets and test papers. Most importantly, there’s no stand alone courses to SET WORKSHEETS AND TEST PAPERS!!!! And the language courses sux too. Not helpful at all la. Shit u. Hmmph.
Have finished the terrible weekend and Monday morning. YEAH!!!! Shall treat myself tmr… Hehehehe……
Eh, surprised tt the title doesnt match the content? Haha, this is the so-called irrelevancy lor.
But honestly, Cable Tv is so ostinato and repetitive. And the shows i wan to watch are like so late or early in the morning la. How to watch? I've got school lez. Haiz.
Waiting for lunch time.......... Sushi, here I come!

Title: Petition for TXL to change her spectacles.
Reason: Because she is wearing the spectacles that the spirit of Darren Sim was wearing whose soul has been sucked into endless vacuum era. TXL may think that this is not a very good reason. But for the NAFA/MOE girls oh dear fellow classmates and friends, I’m sure you would agree with me that having a pair of Darren Sim’s spectacles is an unfortunate thing and is the biggest reason why she must change it! Come on, who wish to be like the spirit who is sucked into the endless vacuum era with no soul???
So please, help me with this petition for TXL to change her spectacles. For less than 150 bucks or so, you can get a cheap yet fashionable pair of spectacles. If TXL you are still very stubborn, I shall have no choice but to buy you a pair for your 21st birthday. And your original birthday prezzie of novel 千万买主 shall be confiscated and not given to you forever. Muahahahahhahahahaha……………

PLEASE VOTE!!! Title: Bridge Vs Pass
Have you ever heard of the phrase, “I’m just too lazy to go home”? This is the phrase that suddenly appeared in my brain. The sad and scary thing is, it is still lingering inside my head. Argh….. Why am I too lazy to go home? Actually, it’s more of a drag.
Cos I have to cross the overhead bridge to the bus-stop.
Fact: I absolutely detest (and loathe) climbing the stupid bridge. The coming down part is worse. There’s so many steps to get down to ground. I keep having fears of losing my step and fall flat and malu myself in front of the so many top students in Singapore! Oh! The shame of it should this happen!
Allow me to do silent screaming for a few minutes.
Ok, back to the topic. Honestly. I dun see the need for overhead bridges. Why cant they do the underground pass instead? So much easier!
1) No need to fight gravity. Can save some energy for poor teachers (aka, Moi) for their teaching in schools. Students can spend more effort on their sports rather den climbing the stupid flight of stairs in the hot, burning and shinning afternoon flame.
2) For those who carries lots of heavy stuffs like books, instruments etc, going through the underpass is definitely so much better than going up stairs!
4) After a long day of lesson, and all you wanna do is just go home and take a shower then a quick nap. Under the hot, blaring sun, you look up at the enormous flight of steps. Sigh. All I can think of is… Sianz…………………………………
3) People (like me again) who can’t wake up early in the morning and are held back by the stupid heavy traffic that occurs every morning can get to school faster. How? Well, running through a straight path is way faster and less strain for legs right? Imagine this. You are running late and you realise that you have to waste 5 minutes to climb the overhead bridge before making it through the school gate. But with the underground pass, you might just need less than a minute to zoom past and get into the school on time! See the BIG difference???!!!!
4) Overhead bridges are so dangerous! Anything can drop and hit someone.
5) In an underground pass, you can wait inside for your friend cos the place is not as obvious as an overhead bridge where you’ll block ppl. (the space at overhead bridges are just so horrifying small don’t you think?) Next, should it rain, where’s the best place for temporary shelter until the rain stops? Is the overhead bridge or underground pass? (DRUM ROLL) Of Course it’s the underground pass! You’ll still get hit by raindrops if you use the bridge cos the only place nor exposed to rain is the HEAD. Underground pass gives so much security.
Come on! What are you waiting for? Vote to change all overhead bridges to underground passes now!!!

Tuesday.. My first lesson (finally!)
BAD NEWS!! TERRIBLE NEWS!!! HORRIBLE NEWS!!!!!!!
My laptop spoiled. How? Y? I oso dunno. Bought it on thurs. Spoil on Sat. And my grandpa desktop not working. So cant do anything at all.. Sianz... Sigh.. Worse part is, I dun even noe wat went wrong! Lesson learnt. Even though some things look very troublesome, bear with it. Dun go all itchy hand and do things on ur own, if not,you'll be left with even bigger problems. Haiz..... Heartache plus bleeding....
Just had my first lesson of the practicum. Yeah! Finally...... But then.... Here comes the bad news. I'm only teaching today. Cos the school has test from wed onwards for this wk. So, I only have lesson today for this week. Sianz... Now, I have to start planning for next week. Sigh. This practicum sux. Nothing to do at all. I envy the rest. At least they're busy. Not like me. Well, I seriously thought that I would be busy. But reality check comes in: I'm not!
Seriously. My fear is that when I start the real teaching, I'd be busy and I won't be able to adapt to it coz I havent had much experience in handling lots of work. But on the other hand, if I am going to be busy in years to come, maybe it wont be so bad to relax a bit now. Sigh.
Heard of the term in direct translation: have fun den do work (xian tian hou ku aka, sweet first den bitter) and the vice versa do work den haf fun (xian ku hou tian aka Bitter taste first den sweetness)? Which one would you prefer?
Honestly,I'd prefer to taste sweetness and haf fun. Who cares about work and tastebuds? All fun and no work makes Yi Fan a happy gal =)
Today's first and only lesson is fun. Haha. The girls were doing soundscape and they had to depict a theme that they have in mind and perform it. The rest of the class had to guess what the group's theme was. There were lots of funny moments. But my favorite one was the one about a Kitchen. None of the class knew what they were trying to depict. Actually, for most of the groups, none knew what was going on. But after the explanation, everything sounded logical, and very creative. Hahahahaha.
The most funny and imaginative was in the Kitchen group. The running notes on the xylo meant boiling water. Okay... Accepted. But a girl played G-F-E-D-C on the xylophone. Guess what did that represent? It meant adding oil. Lol.. Then there were other sounds from different claves. Every click meant that the gal mus hit the xylo again to add oil and so on and so forth. Hahahaha... Completely lost that one. So imaginative rite?
There was another one who was playing the tamborine. And she shook so hard that her face was so red that I thought she was going to explode!!! Hhahaa. And she shook harder and harder until the leader called it an end. Hahahahaha...
While the girls were very engrossed and enthu on hands-on activites, most of them preferred listening exercises. Why? Cos heard a few of them say "Yeah, can listen." Haha. So interesting. Hmmm... Maybe can invest in listening exercises or games.....
1339. An hour more and I can go off for piano lesson. 20min b4 going to auditorium and sleep while students listen.
Shall stop blabbling.............

Bad day again
Haha. Have been almost 2 weeks since I last updated. Today is the last day of term 1. Wohooo!!! But dun know what to celebrate for. Cos I havent been really hardworking anyways. Hahaha. Just hang around, hog on to the internet and watch video. Eh... What else? hmmm. Tt's about it. Hahahaha..
But I definitely know that I'll be busy from term 2 onwards. Yipee!
Sec 2 lifeskills camp just over. Sianz.. First time feel so sianz during a camp. Wish I can be around with the girls to build up rapport. But den... Lots of reasons that just couldnt work things out. Sigh.. I hate to think that since I'm only here for 10 weeks, it's ok la or that since I wont be posted here premanently why bother. It's a really pessimistic way of thinking. And I seriously want to change my past bad habits. These 2 weeks of no teaching got me no way.
Wish for term 2: 1. Start teaching!!! Even though I've got only 5 classes, (Raj have to teach all 13 classes! Gulp!) I hope to do my best in all of them. And especially since I've got only 5 classes, I MUST do my best!!!!!!!!
2. Get more in touch with my 3 CTs. Havent been talking much to them, cos I'm still not really used to the surrounding yet. Eh.. Last time took 2 weeks to settle in. This week doesnt count cos of camp (lame excuse). So, I hope to un-shy myself and be more daring to ask more questions.
3. Be more active in school! Mix around more I guess. Regarding this point, hmmm. Shall develop in-depth.
4. Should I have to teach HMP and O'level classes, I hope I can smoothly get it done. I dun wanna do destructive teaching that my 2 CS CTs have to undo whatever I have done. (cross fingers)
5. Survive 4 sessions of Taichi!!! All teaching staffs have to attend a morning exercise of some sort. I've chosen Taichi cos it seems like no need to sweat too much. I hope it rains all 4 sessions! (evil thoughts)
I've got actually like a lot of stuffs to write. Some of them quite funny, but, I've forgotten them and I'm too lazy to write now. Hehe. So, for now, I'll just go back to watching videos.
PS: It's good to have 2 CTs. Got 2 ppl to check my lesson plan. More fool-prove. But the scary thing is that they would be using my lesson plan too! Gulp. Got the stress when I think of this. SO, have to really think through before writing and make sure that the lesson plan will at least 80% usable. Wa!!! Stress ar!!!!!! Doing alone has its own pros and cons. Pros, can do whatever you like. Cons, not consistent enough. Very hard to keep track. Do for the department, pros, can work out the lesson together. After all, 2 heads are better den one. Zhu Ge liang did not lose to three uneducated ppl for nothing. Strength and numbers does help you know? Haha.. Cons, stressful. All the no-good stuffs when doing group work. But luckily, my 2 CTs are really nice. Trust me and leave me to planning. No restrictions. (yet) Haha. I'm lucky to have them. Educated, not bossy, friendly and patient. Haha. And very effective too. They were actually going through my lesson plan during the drama performance so that I dun haf to wait too long and can go home earlier. So good rite? Hahaha
PPS: Opps, my PS is too long. CYA!!!
