Peace be upon you, friends.
I think my aura is back! My blogging aura, to be exact. To write more than three posts in a month is a big achievement, at least for me. So aura, please you, do not leave me again! You make me feel like this is my first time blogging when I’m so excited to write lots and lots of stories. I love this moment. Yeay!
Let’s start this fifth post for January now! I had my Literature for Children and Young Adults class yesterday, and we were discussing about the world of adolescent, I would say. Mdm Nori gave us five questions and we were asked to share the answers with our friends. I love the questions, seriously! It brings me back to the environment of a younger Mohd Azim Bin Saidon. Oh, I just realized, I’m 24 years old! 24? Muda lagi! :P
O.K, back to the questions. The questions asked were:
1. The definition of adolescent.
We agreed that adolescent is individuals who are between 13 to 19 years old.
2. Five wonderful things that happened during your adolescent period.
i. I got a pair of roller blades for my birthday! I still have it now!
ii. My handwriting is beautiful and neat, according to my teachers and friends la
iii. I was chosen as the best ‘pemantun’ when I was in Form 3. Feewit!
iv. After years, I finally managed to reach Genting Highlands! I went there with my Chinese friends. Yes, I started to apply 1 Malaysia spirit a long time ago. Kudos to me J
v. Had crisis with friends. Trust me, you had this one to! Tak kawan for few days, then finally sent letter to apologize and there you go; now you are friends back. Yeah, these are the things that make us smile when we reminisce our sweet remembrance, kan?!
3. Three ‘horror’ things/events that you have experienced. I like this part!
i. This incident happened when I was doing my morning business. (You know what it is!) While I was concentrating doing my business, a spider, I would say a quite-big spider, no; it was a BIG spider, crawled happily behind my back. Which part? You tell me.
ii. My lung or heart was swollen and I had difficulties each time I wanted to breathe. It was super painful and I could not sleep! This was because I used a heavy ball when I played bowling in the morning. Well, that was my first time playing bowling, so, I just took the ball and had fun. Hehe. Oh, kumpul duit sekolah ok pergi main kat Batu Pahat!
iii. This is the best part. My friends and I were caned by Ustaz Harun because we were playing and laughing in the surau. It happened when I was in Form 1. Yeah, I deserve it! Sekarang dah tak buat tau!
4. Four books you have read during your adolescent period.
i. Singapore Ghost Stories. ( I read it at my school library)
ii. Diari Bonda (My sister’s novel)
iii. Saka (My sister’s novel)
iv. Of course, our literature component! (Hak Kerajaan)
5. Two people that you knew that have influenced you.
The first one would be Mr Donald Trump. I really adore his persona in dealing with people and problems. He is such a strong individual. I love to watch The Apprentice and sometimes, yes, I put myself in the boardroom and defending myself to become the apprentice. Boleh?
The second person who has influenced me is an Indonesian writer, Mr Habiburrahman El-Shirazy. His writings are spectacular and I have it all! J To fall in love and to be loved based on Islamic perspective. It’s just beautiful!
Then, we move on to our next topic; my students
Students!!! Sir Azim misses you so much. Two of my students asked me questions and I promised them to answer in this post. So, the first one comes from Haris who has asked me 5 questions. So Haris, I present you, my answers. Hehe
My sweet memories
Well, I would say my sweet memories are my trip to Jakarta and being called Pak Jojo when I was in SMKKK1. Hehe. When you are called “Pak” or “Jo” in school, you are celebriteacher. Hehe. A new word by me. It was not easy to be in front of the class and teach. You need some sort of aura to make the students stare and focus on you. Well, in this case, Pak Jojo had helped me, I would say. Hehe. I thanked Andrew Andika for helping me to gain confidence when I was doing my practicum. Yes! You wanna see the evidence? Taraa:
See students? He says hye to you. Though he could not add me, at least he is glad to have helped me in my teaching. Alhamdulilah.
How do I feel about SMKKK1
How do I feel? I love this school so much. The teachers and students are super duper cool. I am grateful to be sent to this school for my practicum. I love my table in teachers’ room. Seriously I miss this school!
My ex-students’ behaviour
Hehe. The cepucemas one! It’s normal for a teacher to face lots of different attitudes. In my case, Alhamdullillah, 2 Bestari and 2 Adil are super duper cool and you people respect me so much. We laughed a lot, didn’t we? Hehe.
You people know how much I love to read your essay? I once was in your place. My essays were marked and this time, I marked your essay. I would say you people can write good essays and yeah, make writing essay as part of your hobby ok!
Now, Suraya Khairuddin.
She loves to watch Glee, and he asks me about Glee. We do love Glee rite Suraya?! Yes, i’m still following the latest season of Glee and in fact, I put some songs performed by the casts in my mp3. Yeay! The must one is Don’t Stop Believing.
I think that's all for now. Yes, the aura is still here and I have lots more exposure to be shared. Wow, exposure katanya. Till then. 11:48 AM. Friday, January 28, 2011.
