If any of my working friends comment that I am so lucky to be paid while studying at NIE, I will seriously hit him/her on the head with my readings and assignments, if I am able to swing the whole stack of them of course.

These few days, I seem to be doing one of the following at any time:
1) Photocopy readings
2) Do the readings
3) Print out more readings
4) Print out tutorials and assignments
5) Do the tutorials and assignments
6) Thinking of Pupil Experience
7) Having group meetings to discuss the Pupil Experience
8) Have the first session of Pupil Experience
9) Compile class list (again and again and again!)

I am so dead. I woke up at 7 yesterday and 5.30 a.m. today. Pupil Experience was quite ok, for a first session. My students were quite slow at first but we gradually warmed up. Looking forward to the next session BUT I have to plan half the lesson by tomorrow.

Anyway I have been eating so much lately I look increasingly like a pig. On Thursday, I met B and we walked around NTU Matric Fair for two hours, eating at the food fair etc. Had pa-tai and yogurt. On Friday, I met up with L, and repeated what I did on Thur, except L and I ate so much I am ashamed to list all the items here. Suffice it to say that we patronised almost all the stalls hee. Anyway I had a great time catching up with them.

During tuition with my cousins today, I had coleslaw, some fries and durian. Durian. Durian. sigh. Then my uncle drove all of us to Bukit Merah Food Centre and had roast duck, omelette, clams, vegetables, frogs' legs, soup and free flow rice and porridge. I am surprised my uncle's new car didn't sag under our weight.

Got a lift back. Now I have to print out next week's worth of readings and tutorials. I hate to say this but I don't think I will want to meet up with any of my friends outside my school hours, because there aren't many of such hours anyway.
