And it only seemed like yesterday when I had a tiny meltdown upon entering 2010.
'Coz it was my last semester ever after 6 years studying (I had to reiterate the period of my course every time, huh?), I was gonna enter class for the first fucking time and oh my god, what if I screw something up (or get screwed really bad - if you catch my drift) that I COULD NOT GRADUATE ON TIME?!
CAN YOU BELIEVE I GOT THROUGH ALL THAT?!
Or, to be less self-centered, CAN YOU BELIEVE YOU GOT THROUGH WHATEVER SHIT THAT CAME YOUR WAY THIS YEAR?!
It's amazing how things work out in the end.
Did I keep to my resolutions and achieve what I sought?
Well, I didn't exactly have new year resolutions nor goals to achieved...
But I did enter class as a fucking teacher for the first time.
I graduated without scabs, broken/paralysed legs or bumps (if you catch my drift).
And I got a job - I became a real teacher.
There were bumps along the way like, how I almost got kicked out of the programme (okay, I may be a little bit dramatic) for having parents of students (which are not mine, thank you very much) making direct complains to the headmistress for having a "seditious blog", facing unruly students whistling like wolves at me like I was walking in my undies when I first got posted (and it continued still till the end of the semester), and of course throwing out students and sadistically ripping their papers in front of them.
But I made it till the end of the year.
I made the overwhelming mindfuck of a transition from student to teacher.
So to quote John Lennon:
So, this is Chrismas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
What have you done/achieved?
