Almost is Never Enough

Ariana Grande said that in her song. Tonight I am writing while listening to the song. Beautiful, I love it. It’s been sticking in my head all day long.

Di ONC Februari lalu, saya diberi empat kelas. Semuanya kelas children. Sampai sekarang saya masih shock setiap hari. Saya belum menemukan jurus terjitu menaklukkan anak-anak yang cuma tau main dan bilang “Maam, can I go home now?”

Padahal orangtuanya sudah bayar mahal buat mereka belajar English.

Mr. Rahman once asked me. “Do you enjoy your class?” and I directly replied, “So so. Sometimes I enjoyed it. Sometimes it felt like hell”. He experienced the same thing.

I just never thought that teaching would be like this.

Would be like there are many people paid attention to you. The way you dress, the way you speak, your expression, your emotion, even your voice.

You have to handle yourself first! You can’t be mad at students. You have to teach them patiently with many creative methods.

Padahal kemarin-kemarin saya sempat niat daftar jadi Pengajar Muda. Sekarang saya merenung apakah mengajar memang pasti akan seperti ini?

But let’s see until a year or two.
Goodnight!
