Ok so I noticed I haven't been blogging as much as I do, but I'm a serial spammer in Instagram, so please follow me @amandachristinewong!
Anyway, yesterday was the last day of school for the year. Part of me goes "HALLELUJAAH", and another part of me goes, "WHAT JUST HAPPENED?" I'm sure most of you can't believe that the year is ending. It's already November, whaat? But my birth month is here! Kindly note that 27th November is my birthday. I know you love me so thanks in advance.
So yesterday my class threw a farewell party, and I was not disappointed.
This class is my second batch kids (as a class a teacher), and honestly, they aren't the brightest, well-disciplined kids, or even the richest, unlike my previous kids. They have never given me awesome gifts like shoes, clothes and bags (also, like my previous kids), but can only afford to get me cheap lame picture frames. They are a melting pot of the quiet and the noisy, the hardworking and the lazy, the diligent and the truant, the honest and the cheaters, the pious and the sluts. They give me headache and heart attack with their god awful essays.
But they managed to melt this cold bitch heart with their unexpected love for me.
I expelled this kid for horrible school attendance, but I urged him to write a letter to the school to be accepted back and here he is now, at the finishing line of the school term, in which I didn't think he'd make it.
Like in my previous class, I popped some sparkling juice for them to make toasts, but wasn't able to make each of them speak because the other invited teachers were already eyeing on the food, wondering when they were finally able to eat.
Then they presented us with a farewell song, and some of the girls started bawling.
Another batch done, another batch of new youth going out to the world. Though they are not potential high-flyers, I do hope that someday they will be able to fly high, in whatever path they choose.
I just hope I did something right.
Happy holidays, teachers!
May our lives be filled with happiness before another new set of nightmare waltz in next year.
