Ouch!

As for a lot of first year students all over the country, last week must have been an eventful time.

I was soo excited to welcome our new first years. Those eager to learn faces. Hmmm soon to be jaded by the hardship of a very trying course. :)

My excitement changed to wonder and then to disappointment. Do not get me wrong. I do feel passionate about teaching these young adults. However there are a few of those who are a bit Duh! "Oh no not this type of students" I sighed to myself. Why so "Skima wan?" (also known as Kiasu attitude or overenthusiastic). Ouch.

Ha ha ha ha. It brought me back to memories of myself. Maybe I was that student as well. I pause to search of memories of me. Ouch again. I was exactly that type of student. ROFL. No wonder Dr. Eevil called me a geek. Oh well. The whole process of going through a degree will soon smooth that one out. Like it did your's truly. Sigh again.

My excitement is back. Wish I did not have to have 2 months maternity leave (I have my own little one soon to care for). I would love to see these young adults grow. Glad to be here for them now.
