did i hear that right?

It’s time to bitch about the lil beasties again aka my students.
I’d run out of the feedback forms that they fill out after the mock interview sessions.
I’d told the bunch to meet me in a while to pick up the papers.
The interaction with one particularly bright person went like this-

STUDENT-MA’AM, WHAT IS THIS FORM FOR? 
ME-THAT’S THE FEEDBACK FORM FOR THE INTERVIEW…WAIT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!!
STUDENT-YOU SAID IT’S THE FEEDBACK FORM SO I WAS FILLING IT UP.
ME-WITHOUT APPEARING FOR THE INTERVIEW? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO CRITIQUE?
S-WHAT’S THAT MA’AM?
M-NEVERMIND….ONCE YOU ARE DONE WITH THE INTERVIEW, ASSESS HOW IT WENT AND WRITE ABOUT IT ON THE FEEDBACK FORM.
S-MA’AM IF I RATE IT THEN WHAT WILL MR.******** (interviewer) DO?
M-HE’LL ASSESS YOU AND GIVE YOU MARKS *which you don’t deserve, you single-celled organism* AND THE OTHER FORM IS FOR YOU TO RATE THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW MODULE, RATE IT AND OFFER YOUR COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS, IF ANY. THEN DROP IT OFF IN THE FACULTY MAIL BOX ON THE 1ST FLOOR.
S-SHOULD I DO THAT NOW BEFORE I GO FOR THE INTERVIEW?
M
YES! PLEASE SUBMIT THE FORM WITHOUT WRITING ANYTHING ON IT. GOOD IDEA. EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO JUMP OUT THE WINDOW!!!

I’m going to keep a track of this guy and find out where he lands a job and send anonymous mails to his boss about his superior intellect.
Anyone order a brain freeze here folks?!

inching towards peace of mind

The last two months have been stressful and thought-provoking to say the least. It’s also been one about making choices, small and large and it’s been about implementing the same.
Last night I finally got the ball rolling. Let’s see how far it goes and whether it rolls over some people in the process.
But despite the kind of indecision and uncertainty that still prevails now, I got one of the few GOOD, SOLID nights sleep last night; it’s been evading me for a while now…
Sheesh, the kind of turmoil that takes place before things finally settle down is EXHAUSTING!
And I am due for a BREAK!!!
