I really thought this January would be more relaxing as it’s the end of semester. Unfortunately, I had nearly forgotten that I have to conduct a public course and it’s going to take 7 of my Saturdays. After discussing with the organizer, I’m going to start my first class on this coming Saturday. To be honest, I’m a bit nervous. This is my first time teaching a public course and it’s going to be a full day on every Saturday. My students would be different from my usual ones too because this public course is catered to working adults. The course itself is nothing new to me as I have taught it before, yet I’m still nervous thinking about conducting this course. Anyway, I’m telling myself a good preparation will definitely ease my anxiety and boast my confidence.
Problem now is I need to find time to do preparation in the midst of my marking workload and invigilating duties.
These piles are keeping me busy on weekdays and also last weekend, although I’m trying to minimize any work during my Sunday. I deserve a good day off, right? Since I’m going to work on Saturdays, my Sundays are becoming more precious now. These are only half of the total piles. I still have more coming this week.
Good thing is my dateline is this Thursday to submit all these markings, then next week I will be off to a conference for a few weekdays. Definitely something to look forward to. However, I just couldn’t believe my January is so full of activities and it is coming to an end soon. Can time pass a bit slower, please? Hehe!
