Well, this is my life! And day by day I've learnt to accept this for the past 5 years I joined this field. It was hard and still is. If only my career is not made complicated with the 'additional' tasks by the admin side, I am sure still gonna have the passion every single day I enter the classrooms that are flooded by empty faces of my students.
I did talk to the boss and requested (well, begged actually) to let me go of the admin responsibilities that are put on my shoulders. The answer that I got was for me to select 'other' responsibilities that are bound to be filled by me. So in other words, I gotta choose to leave a door of mountain-high extra duties yet to enter 'another' door of the exactly same weight of tasks. I begged to be JUST an educator. A normal teacher. The answer was obviously, a NO.
So, this is my life! In God's name, I may accept all the (extra) tasks in my hand. And surely, I've to get more red pens to play my part well in this part of my life.
PS: Happy 25th National Days to all Bruneians. I am not exactly a patriot but I'm sure glad I'm a Bruneian :) Cheers!
