Less than 7 days, we will celebrating Eid. Alhamdulillah, the fasting month has gone by so swiftly. I think going to work really helps in waiting for the time to pass. The students had their school holidays earlier in May, but the teachers still have 3 weeks before going for a 1 month Eid holiday. So coming to work when the kids are no longer in school, is so so relaxing. The working hours is also flexible, no need to come early in the morning and we get to go back early! So the remaining 3 week we had to make a curriculum plan for the upcoming academic year. Something new for me, but can be done inshaAllah. It was a lot of meetings and discussions from morning till Zuhur, and then after that productivity slowly decreases, which leads to ZZZ. Haha coming from me, that is so not surprising. Who knew just sitting there for hours discussing on this and that would require lots of thinking and brainstorming, in the end your thinking capacity reaches negative zero lol. But alhamdulillah, we had to set the goals and target on things that should be done before the long holiday, most of it was done yesterday. So I still have today and tomorrow before setting off for Eid.
This was after the Term Theme Night, the highlight of my department in SSI. It was a successful night, hamdan lillah.
Staff room clan.
Before coming into this school, I promised myself to keep the circle of friends small, mainly because of past experiences I had with people. I was quite scared of the history repeating itself once again. But these faces had made it quite difficult. Each and everyone of them is so special and I feel that this is one of the blessings Allah is giving me working in SSI. I couldn't be more grateful in meeting them. They make my time in school to be very worthwhile. With all the stress and workload, these faces make the staff room to be very merry and lively, each of them with their own wits and cheeks. You know its a blessing when Allah sends good people to you and giving the chance for you to be a better person. Within these 3 months, I think I've improved a lot, maybe on a personal level I would say so. I think after months of battling things internally, I finally had the chance to talk and share my feelings with someone. Someone who happens to be inflicted with the same situation I was in. It really helps, inshaAllah. Because they say, the signs of people growing up is they tend to lose friends. Responsibilities and commitments changed, so they can no longer attend to your needs. But I know this is definitely the part of growing up. The only way to handle this is to move on. Alhamdulillah, I'm slowly building the courage to trust people again and giving another shot. Hopefully this stays.
Spending the last days of Ramadhan in speeding things up. Currently at Juzu' 23, please pray that I'll be in time to khatam before Eid arrives lol. Still a few more days for tarawih and qiyam, inshaAllah hopefully I'll be able to maximize everything. If not, tak mampu buat semua, jangan tinggalkan semua right?
Right at the time.
