Back for 10 mins!

I hereby plead guilty for ignoring my blog and for not even bothering to think about what to blog. 

It has been such an arduous term 3, this year's being one of the toughest with my added workload. Not that I am not enjoying my work. On a sadistic note, I am enjoying what I have been doing but it has been really tiring and draining that I have almost zero energy left by the time it's time for dinner.

It doesn't help that it is the holy month of Ramadhan whereby I should be levelling up my number of deeds. It saddens me to think that we have already passed the mid-month mark of the fasting month yet, I do not feel that I have done enough. Time passes by too quickly that it scares me.

The recent week has been pretty crazy. I have no idea what made the school management decide on this arrangement but we had the EL paper for 'N' Level prelims, common tests for Sec 1 -3 and mock exams for Sec 4E/5NA all on the same day! It was never like this used to be a lil more spread out so that teachers do not get overwhelmed by the huge loads of markings to be done -  all at one go.

I have not been spared , of course.... so this is where I spent the whole of this weekend at...

My messy table

I know, you can hardly see the top of my table . This is just the one at home, mind you ..I have yet to show you my cubicle in the staff room. As you can see, I am doing my marking while surfing the Net as well. I have to do that if I want to get my markings done.

I use the laptop as a motivation. Mark five scripts, go to one website/check facebook/ read a blog for about 5 - 10 minutes. After that , back to the markings ...and I try to increase the number of scripts for each interval. That is the only way to keep me from falling asleep.

I have just finished one pile of 'N' Level essays. I wish it stops there but that's just wishful thinking on my part.

In that bag, there are 2 stacks of Mock Exam papers to be marked and in that folder, are the class testimonials that I have to edit by tonight. Everything else has been left in school because I did not want to be unrealistic by bringing everything back .

Even now, I very much doubt that I can finish whatever I brought home . So much for trying to be realistic!


Alright , my ten minutes is up. Back to work with my best friends for the weekend!

Buddies for the moment :P
