A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Phinally… :P


The end of school year, for this year 2011 is here. Never have been more glad to have a vacation, than now, this year, this day, this moment. I am overdoing it, na? But that is way it is! Can’t wait for 1530 hours, or thereabouts, when we can all depart to our homes, away from it all!!!

So why do I feel this way? Sometimes it’s like that, sometimes the pressure builds up, the vents are shut down, the spirit is willing, but by God! the flesh takes no note of it!

There have been moments when I gave up, almost. Did not though, else I would not still be around, ranting and raving at the system, and all that I want to do with it :P! You give all of yourself, in the knowledge that the others will do the same. What naivete, what innocence!! At almost 50, I should know better, right? Well they  I whipped off my rose-tinted specs quite fast! My perceptions remain the same, though. Thankfully!

I have to thank Shail, for making today special, with an Award conferred 🙂 Shall write more on her, and it, in a while 🙂

And, today I feel good too, because I’ve got 52+ cards to give my class, the VIII ‘A’. Pssst… don’t tell them ok? It’s a surprise 🙂 Can’t wait to see their faces, when they see ME, of all the people giving it! Will share the beautiful cards I received, hand made, in another post 🙂 They are the darlingest, the most mischievous though they be, the kids! And that is the only reason I’m there!

Have a great day, all! Will be back laters 🙂 🙂

Merry Christmas too! May Santa come calling, (though I just saw this on FB, shared by a Ken Hess!) 😆

  6. 52 cards? Amazing! You are such a special teacher, Usha…
    “There have been moments when I gave up, almost… You give all of yourself, in the knowledge that the others will do the same..”.- these words mean a lot to me.
    Congrats! Enjoy the break! Wish you a great 2012!
    And the note – hahaha :))
