It is in my nature to get into troubles.
Okay, I lied, there were times of REAALLL troubles that solving them require the assistance from various authoritative figures.
Let’s look at some troubles that I was trapped in and how I ran out of them:
1. Lavatory doom
Living a funky dorm life means sharing bathrooms and toilets with thirty other girls that inhabited that floor. A chapter in my university life revealed, “Once upon a stormy tummy day, I rushed into the toilet to do the errr … bowel evacuation. Several seconds later, I realised something *gasp *, an absence of toilet paper !!!!”
What a smart girl to do? ^^
I put on my radar ears and listened to every footstep.
I opened the door slightly and my eyes did a quick scan, up then down, left and right.
Assured that there were definitely no other people within 5-meter radius, I tiptoed to the next cubicle.
Woohoo ! This cubicle had a new roll of toilet paper !
2. The Inverter
I stayed up late one night (not because of partying!) and woke up drowsy the morning after. Alas, I had to meet a friend that day, so in a rush, I quickly performed all of my morning rituals in 10 minutes and off I went!
Once I got to the rendezvous, I greeted my friend with a brighter-than-neon -light smile, trying to hide the lack of sleep.
She pointed at my shirt and asked, “Are you wearing your shirt inside-out? Kok kayak kebalik?”.
I spotted a mirror nearby and quickly glanced at it to check.
Kekekeke luckily I got a brilliant tactic *light bulb*,
“ It’s intentional ! Emang modelnya gini! I thought it looks funkier this way!”.
Hueheheh … luckily she believed it ^^. In fact, many people did fall into believing that the shirt was meant to look ‘that’ way!
Moral of the story: If this ever happen to you, sok pe-de aja.
3. Quickie Quizzy
One thing led to another and I ended up with a teaching job. Workload and stress sometimes made me forgot to flip through my daily planner.
One sunny afternoon, I stepped into a classroom full of pale, panicked students,
Student: “Miss, we’re not ready for the quiz !”
Me : (puzzled)
(thinking, “Noooss !! I promised a quiz and forgotten about it !)
(trying to calm down)
( ting ! another light bulb moment )
“ Not ready eh ? How could you ? I’ve announced this since last week ! ^^”
Student: “We got lots of assignments and other quizzes this week”
Me : (hey, same here…)
“ Okay, I’ll give 15 minutes to prepare for the quiz”
I quickly ran upstairs, did a super quick search of the last term’s quiz questions, change the date and print them for the whole class ! Forget about photocopying, the photocopier is too far!
After 15 minutes , I was back at the classroom.
Me : “Alrighty, let’s start the quiz ^^”
Mind you, this only ever happened ONCE! (or maybe twice …)
4. Caught blog-handed
When I began “Butterfly Effects”, I wanted to be anonymous, a mysterious secret blogger by the name
of Arion. Months after “Butterfly Effects” first debuted, trails of students were found from time to time.
This blog was designed to be a venue for my rapacious daily rants, hence initially, I was a bit worried
Student : “Miss Ariooonnn !!!”
Me : “ Huh ? Orion ?”
Student: “Hehehe , that’s Miss Nebula”
Me : ( It’s nebulous not nebula, mate !) “Err ? What’s a nebula ?”
These days though, I don’t see this as a trouble, in fact hmm … I might use this blog for teaching aid ^^!
Okay students, don’t close your browser just yetttt ….
