[ #Day238 - minimalismo ]
Estou tentando ter menos, começando pelo meu guarda roupa. Você sabe quantas roupas você tem? Eu não sabia, mas achava que não eram muitas (me achava o simplão). Aí comprei 30 cabides para pendurar todas as minhas camisas, camisetas, blusas e afins, achava que dava com folga, faltou cabide. Decidi então doar tudo que não estava nos cabides, foi um processo de alguns meses de desapego. Mas, no final de tudo, não sinto falta de nada. Então por que eu tinha tanto, pra começo de conversa?
Day 238: Missing my Lecturing Days
Teaching 👨🏻🏫 and working in a corporate environment 👨🏻💼 is very different.
As a teacher, you can be creative and inventive with your approaches and how you deliver the syllabus. It has this satisfying feeling when you see your students makes a break through in learning, or suddenly 'gets it'. Seeing a student taking that extra effort in class because they enjoy your teaching, is truly an amazing feeling. Although any social interactions are really limited to the students, parents and school. All your free time are chewed up by marking homework, grading, researching, and your own personal life.
Working in an office environment requires minimal amount of self-determination. You are adhering to strict processes and orders with little opportunity to express your own creative side. You are usually focused on making money for other people or saving costs for large organisation. The job can be satisfying if you can do it well. However that really depends on your boss and colleagues. At times it can be frustrating and emotionally draining. One plus side of working in office is the social life, as you are mixing with a wide range of adults, from post room to the board room.
Each as their pros and cons.
Been a teaching for more than 8 years, I was happy to make a change to working in an office. Now I am 6 years into my desk-job, I am now looking back at my teaching life and comparing which one I liked more 🤔!
Honestly to say, I still like my teaching career more! To me it is more meaningful and mentally satisfying. Plus I get more respect from people around me.
Have you ever reconsider getting your old job back?
Sometimes amongst the plethora of questions swimming within you, a casual read in one corner of a 22 page newspaper seems to help ease you out....(even if temporarily).
It helps reinforce that everything happens for a reason.
#gratitude for such casual brushes...
Since my write ups are always accompanied by a picture clicked by the self...
This burning ghat at #manikarnika - #kashi explains the ephemeral nature of life in general... much in the same way as inner churnings happen to be- short lived!
The words of Antoine de Saint-Exupery ( and no he ain’t a saint... in fact a very prolific writer with an interesting life) that I came across today were,
“ To Become,
surely a man needs a closed place wherein he may strike root and, like the seed, become.
But also he needs the Milky Way above him and the vast sea spaces,though neither stars nor ocean serve his daily needs”. .

A message that finds its way to you!
🎶On any Friday here you’ll see, trying to work out the harmony... one day all our trials (rehearsals) will cease, and we will be released (to perform, Nov 7-11)..🎶
I’ll be honest, I’m happy to not have 🎹 1 or 2 this time, plus all the vocals. But definitely have the words running through my head 😝 🕺👟#aliphotos#music#day238

This egg looks wooden, eggtualy, I’m questioning whether it is wood. It’s got eggstremely wood associated features for “spots”, I like it eggtually, the glare and lighting also work really well, so does the background. I’m fw the shape too, in-feggt this may be almost perfeggt, this is definitely a 9.67807129983110024/10 #egg#dailyeggpic#succ#suckanegg#fortnite#wood#yolkporn#eggslut#eggporn , also cumcell got banned again, so if y’all could drop @cumcel a follow that would be good.
