It’s been months since I updated this blog, frustrating my avid readers in the process (last time I checked, I got two of  them). I told myself that I won’t blog until I found a job, though laziness is the more likely reason for my inactivity.

Anyway. The fact that I posted something new today means I already have a job. Last week my high school alma mater offered me to teach research to their senior students, and consequently, english literature as well to the other years. Complications and issues later, it’s final: I am going to teach 4th grade science and Junior and Senior english literature.

Sounds fun.

Except for the fact that I haven’t got experience in teaching literature, let alone english literature. I am required to teach in english, something my younger self would be horrified to know. Well yeah, I know my subject-verb agreement, and perhaps written dozens of research papers, but speaking english has never been my proverbial cup of tea. I am tempted to blame The University, or even the environment where I was raised. But it wouldn’t change my circumstances. The only solution for now it seems is to accept the fact that shit happens. I’ll just have to deal with it.

On the positive light, accepting this job may mean that I’ll continue to study for the rest of the year, which is a very good way IMO in preparing myself for the research work for the Master’s.

Oh well, I’ll start tomorrow. Let’s hope things will be less horrendous than what I expect it to be.
