A perfectly-normal Ramadhan@sch.
Today marked the first day after a semester break. I woke up at 4.20a.m n drank a glass of plain water an hour later.
Mokcik manusia biasa. Kecintaan kepada katil adakalanya sukar dikawal kata ko.
I recited Quran until 6.15a.m n re-mark few paper for 15 minutes, before bersiap nak gi kerja. Yes, waktu pagi mokcik sangat berkira walaupun seminit dua. Jadi jangan nak sentap if I did not pick up ur call in d morning. Heh?
On my way to work, I stopped at Mastan&Sons to pick up the newspaper for my colleagues. Kerja amal yang mokcik buat dengan harapan Allah mudahkan urusan mokcik di sana nanti.
I was greeted by Mr Az with d request which should be next week.
"Boleh je..." mokcik menjawab dengan tenang padahal kepala ligat fikir, duh!
I went to see Mr A, asking about the batch I asked him to print two weeks ago. I hope it complete, so that I can send another batch. Mr A said he will try, n I trust him will.
Sementara tu kepala ligat fikir kat mana nak cekau payment for the first batch. 😭.
Terus mokcik menonong pergi dan tak toleh kiri kanan dah. Serabut.
I saw d boss, I shud see him about d Reading Clinic paperwork as d sponsor had called during the break. But I have more urgent matters.
Last November, 11 Girls helped me with Explorace project. I promised to give them a token. Cuma thn lepas mokcik outstation ke sana kemari, expenses mengalahkan anak seploh, ended up hidup mokcik pun ditaja juga adanya.... I saw d book I like in big Bad Wolf Sale tapi mokcik memang x berduit waima nak beli, tu pun Baby yg bagi loan. I was waiting for BBW box sale, tapi Unfortunately buku tu dah takder...
Jadi I bought something else n gave them this morning. Yang ni lagi penting daripada jumpa Boss kot. I couldnt thank them enough!!!
Tapi sebab dah 7 bulan berlalu, I m afraid saya tercicir satu nama. Haishhh..
Then, I prepared for materials.
The first class I went, the lead actor forgot his lines. Not good
The second class, I waited for 10 minutes before they appeared.
Then I went to d staffroom to do some task. A friend came and initiated small talk. I like. It is just that I had so many pending task.
Few minutes later Nurin n Nazihah came, "Teacher ada minyak tak?" she asked.
Mokcik suruh dia lie down in d musalah while I rummaging d table for d ointment. I did!
I left d friend n looked for d Girls. Dia demam n having cramps. Mokcik kasi minyak je, mereka sapu sendiri. Meanwhile, mokcik pun mengambil kesempatan merebahkan badan dan memejamkan mata...
It wasnt long.
few mins later I had another class. They had Play too but today they r not in d mood. Hahahahha
Mokcik ikut je kata mereka...
So we had essay writing instead.
Gigih pula, so mokcik terlewat keluar 15 minit.
While waiting for d next class I had Dhuha n lie down again. Kepala mokcik spinning dek pending task dan masalah negara katanya...
At 1.15p.m mokcik intai, my next class is still lock up. They went down to other room. At 1.45P.m it was still lock up. I saw their shoes were arranged neatly in front of that room, 15 mins left, I dont think they will come up. So I performed Zuhur prayer at 1.50P.m.
After prayer mokcik intai lagi kelas tu. Ehhh dah ada orang.
"Teacher, kitaorang dah naik sejak pukul 1.40 lagi", mereka cakap dengan garang.
" Tapi I saw it was still locked up at 1.45P.m", mokcik jawab, equally garang...
Further check, sebenarnya jam kelas derang tu lambat seploh minit.
Habis tu takkanlah sorang pun takder jam tangan kot?.
Stress mokcik bila kena marah ngan anak murid.
At 2p.m it was time for them to go solat. We bid goodbye n promised to meet up tomorrow morning.
Mokcik terus menonong ke staffroom dan marking. Not much.
Then I re-do the paperwork. Kadang2 saya tak faham. D meeting was on April 10, I submitted on April 15th, then on May 2, d sponsor send template suruh ikut.
Konfem saya x mo buat kerja dua kali.
Tapi Allah sebaik2 perancang. Rupanya saya lupa nak e-mail paperwork tu.
Saya cuma bagi pd boss n tabled pd rakan sekerja saya je...
" say, u did not send in to us yet, d u mind to follow d template" d sponsor asked, last week. Gilerrr... Mestilah saya cakap boleh.
At 4P.m d paperwork was ready. Submitted to d boss n emailed to d sponsors.
Then, there is a certain event I had to attend on this Saturday. I printed out d documents to be submitted to d boss too.
In between, Yuni came n told about d not-so-nice request from my fellow clubmates.
"Do not entertain", saya cakap sambil tersenyum. Of course saya kasi reasons.
Kenapalah ada orang yang sangat inconsiderate? Saya fikir, kepala saya dah berserabut dengan itu ini, lagi mereka ni buat sikap berbagai2...
Tapi inilah part n parcel of being Ketua Darjah.
Kepala spinning macam gasing pun kita senyum je, macam dalam bank ada seploh juta. Ermmm....
"Tak nak balik lagi?" mereka tegur on their way out.
"Tak bolehlah... Ada events nak kena prepare", mokcik jawab senang.
"Hamboiii macam retisss", Len kata sambil menunjukkan beskut raya dan rendang yang dia baru beli. Mokcik pau rendang dia, baik hati Len.
At 4.50p.m barulah mokcik boleh tutup kipas dan kunci pintu. I was d only one left.
Extremely exhausted. Drained.
I stopped at #18. Talked to mommy for a while before dashed off home.
Switched on d phone n there, a message
"Nak tak berbuka kat istana?".
I know yang bertanya meant well.
Tapi yang saya betul2 nak hari ni ialah, lie down on my pinkish bed, sapu minyak kat dahi n doze off..
Every cloud has silver linings kata deme😘
