Last week, I am thankful for..

Last week, I am thankful for a lot of things J

1)      Special shoutout to my superb collabs, who are always amazingly supportive and reminds me we're all in this together. A simple ''How are you?'' and ''Are you okay?'' means a lot. Teaching in two different sessions making it hard for us to bump into each other Vani. Last week, I am thankful for my sbm's advices and guidance in improvising my math lesson. Thanks Joseph for the reflections in class and conversation over lunch. I remember the look on the computer center's staff when you went into the cafĂ© (with teacher's nametag) checking out for your students. *snaps* for effort to get to know the community.

2)      I've been staying at school from 7am to 7pm. The previous week was a busy one. A lot of sports trainings in the evening. Got back home exhausted, sleep all the way 9pm to 430am. If maintaining my sanity means I have to sleep early and spend less time preparing fancy teaching aids, I'll do it. Next week's aim, make sure to have breakfast every single day.

3)      Grandfather just got out from the hospital today. Alhamdulillah. He had a fever since last week. A lot of relatives visiting and gather at my house. Since I have to juggle with my personal and professional life well, I do my best to balance the two. Sometimes I just prepare the drinks, serve them and chitchat for a while, the next minute I'm already in my room lesson planning. Glad everyone understands that I have to work ten times harder and be more efficient.
