Today (16 May) is the day my day job is celebrated. Thanks for all the text messages, and also the personal wishes coming in. I appreciate it. Frankly speaking, I don’t anticipate anything for this day. Not even a wish from anyone because I know how crappy and terrible I am at my day job.
I also know I am not that experience in what I do, and despite giving my best, I still find myself very much flawed and sometimes lost or lack in information. There are moments I feel that those whom are under me know more than they should, leaving me very much wondering why am I standing in front of them, teaching them something they already know. It’s an awkward feeling, but I deal with it by empowering myself with more knowledge.
Anyway, the text messages and personal wishes coming in made me realize that what I am doing is so much worth it. At the point where I feel that my day job actually sucks because it throttles my social life, I get a new life line of why am I actually doing it for a living. In fact, I could be doing so much other things, but I choose this job, and there are in fact moments which I could really describe as ‘sweet’.
So, thanks for all the wishes, and encouragement. Indeed, I know I am not perfect at my day job. I am not actually a role model when it comes to my day job’s requirements, but I believe that somehow, and somewhere, I have managed to make a positive difference in someones life, and to me, that is the best part of my day job…
Happy teacher’s day bro! Sama-sama kita memartabatkan profesion keguruan! Let’s make a difference!
You got that right my friend!!
selamat hari guru! people like you makes the world a better place 🙂
Happy Teacher’s Day…. 🙂
Selamat Hari Guru!
You too cikgu!!
I do think that your job is very respectable, it may not seem superbly “high” in status but hey, if a person really fit himself into the shoes of your profession, it would be one of the most challenging task he has ever encountered.
At the end of the day, I also believe that it is the most fulfilling. Leaving a mark, aiding so many lives towards their future/success, what more can the world demand from a man?
Hence Cyril, Selamat Hari Guru !!
Thanks you man.. your words are nothing short of inspiring, but the word ‘respectable’ sometimes is really a burden.
i know i’m kinda late now but….
SELAMAT HARI GURU!!!!!
Happy teachers’ day man! Happy for you and thanks to you for educating our children.
Hey Cyril, you seem like you are not confident of being a teacher. Once upon a time I was a bit something like you. If you are on it you have to enjoy it. Many are yet to come. Experience will make you learn. Don’t fret! Teaching is a noble job. Forget about what others say about teachers but just get along with it. Way to go man…
Thanks bro!! Frankly, I am very much surprised to see you here 😛
Hahaha, you’re a teacher?!! The other day my coursemates found your post on BTN and posted in on facebook. Hahah. But I never thought you’re a teacher. Thought you’re just another civil servant. 😛
Why is it so surprising that I am a teacher? 😛 wuahaha….
Happy belated Teacher’s day
