This week has been exhausting because of the preliminary examination of my students. Though I'm given a week of rest from teaching, the paperwork doubles on examination weeks. I have to check 80+ examination papers and prepare a summary of my students' deficiencies. I do this additional task because I want to practice transparency in my classes. I open my class records to ensure that all their scores are encoded accurately. In addition, I also want to give my students an idea of how much effort they need to exert to pass my subject. So as you can see, the real job of a teacher doesn't only evolve on providing instruction. A lot of people don't realize that the job of a teacher extends to maintaining organized records, monitoring students' performance and later on motivating them to study harder. (Harder for the students and hardest for the teachers too.)
So much talk about my work, I hope I didn't bore all of you. ;-) I wanted to give myself a break so I engaged in my usual stress busting activity.. shopping! I promised myself not to shop until December.. but sorry I just can't. Perhaps if all shopping malls around me are tore down to pieces then I might stop. hahaha! This week I caused these damaging pieces of happiness to my wallet

I don't know what is happening to my hormones and brain cells who are responsible for my appetite. For this week, I got addicted to this

Have a sweet and relaxing weekend to everyone! :)
