small words, big points

cinco de mayo:
third... kenneth and his wife came over last night–no, yesterday afternoon. we talked. ate burnt-corn and fried groundnuts [both burnt and fried here refer to roasting]. corn and legumes are a great combo in any combo! we played scrabble. they beat me badly... not sure about their counting technique. still, they're good. small words, big points.

don't know why it didn't occur to me to ask about hours at GBSS [govt bilingual secondary school] before. turns out they have only 2 bio teachers there. Mrs. Galaga and Tita Alex. more than 18 hours each. and, if i decide to help, i could have forms 1 & 2 bio. why didn't i ask before? anywho... next year or beyond. insha'Allah.

  1. i should explain that part of the reason i was interested in more hours teaching biology at GBSS was b/c i had such few teaching hours at GTTC. this would especially be the case in my second year... when the number of students per class/year at GTTC would plummet.

    more on all this later...
