Today is supposed to be the wordless day. But for some reasons, I feel like writing. You know when some people – sometimes for no reason – feel like not doing anything, feel like eating something sweet, and so on. It’s the mood, no?
So I’ll just write. This post is so random, that even when typing this, I still have no idea on what to talk about. Let see if some ideas will eventually come out of nowhere.
I’m not gonna take long time to write this. I have to do some reports, planning, reading and editing afterwards.
Recently, my weekends were so packed with classes. On Sundays for example, I had 4 two-hour lessons in a row. Well that’s not including the travelling hours. There were days where I had to be outside from 11.00 a.m to 11.00 p.m. Wait. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I love my job. I love teaching.
Sometimes I’m so tired that I don’t feel like meeting any friends, texting and stuffs. When I’m home, I usually spend my time playing with my cats, doing some house chores and reading – I have loads of books to be read.
Sometimes I wonder, am I living a normal life?
Oh ya. About my Japanese study, I’m thinking to go to another school. Some of the reasons are;
- To change the learning environment. – I’ve been learning at the same school for almost 3 years!
- The tuition fee at the new school is slightly cheaper. – Location wise, they are almost the same.
- The new school offers more conversation practices rather than grammatical theory and writing. – I need to practice speaking and delivering my ideas in Japanese.
I haven’t told my current sensei about quitting the school. I think I’ll do it in this week.
Frankly, it’s not that easy to change – well I don’t know if I can get well into the new school with new sensei and classmates – but sometimes we just need to get out of our comfort zones.
Unless you try to do something beyond you have already mastered, you will never grow. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
They say, every new level of your life will demand a different you. Probably this is the time.
Oh, I miss Miyatake Sensei.
Okayyy. Looks like I have taken more than 15 minutes to write this. So I’ll stop here.
Saw this on twitter:
Ramadan leads people who never prayed to pray. Don’t laugh about someone who might find his turning point in these blessed days.
Just because you’ve never made a mistake before, doesn’t mean you’ll never ever make one.
Al-iman yazid wa yanqus.
We are human being, with so many flaws. We make mistakes in life ー so many of them to the extend that sometimes we don’t even realise we’re making one.
May Allah leads our way, whenever and wherever we are.
Ramadan kareem, people.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
– Chinese proverb
The only way to permanently install a new habit is to direct so much energy toward it that the old one slips away like an unwelcome house guest.
ーThe Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, Robin Sharma (p. 104)
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.
Though the road has never been easier or clearer, let’s just have some faith, hopes and dreams. Because these, can somehow keep you moving and stay strong no matter how hard is your situation.
The secret of happiness is simple: find out what you truly love to do and then direct all of your energy towards doing it.
ーRobin Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari (p.66)
There is everything you know and there is everything that happens. When the two do not line up, you make a choice.
