Invigilation

Invigilation is a slow game of Pacman. There are, however, no winners;

Just teachers entrenched in those aisle

Picking up dropped pencils and adjusting facedown student cards- bored out of their minds

Knowing fully well that their only escape is a quiet classroom and a pile waiting for that red tick- Or red cross.

Students, stuck in their seats filling pages and pages with dates and sums and reasons in hopes that they will will be rewarded. Sometimes merely waiting for the declaration: “Pens down!”

Indeed, this game of Pacman holds us all hostage!

An Ode to the Little Things

Bob Marley: a true poet in my books. A man who never held on too tightly to the things of the world and thus lost very little. My eyes are about to feast on words of wisdom and soak up like a sponge the beauty of living.

My cellphone rings; my unlikely friend on the other side, “how about some coffee and a hang out? I’ll bring!” I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but the gesture often means more than its contents.

There are certain people in our worlds that you cross paths with mostly on social media – digital friends, if you like. Once in a blue moon,though, you colide with such friends organically and not only do they sparkle in real life as brightly as they do on your newsfeed, but they also ignite a flame which was lying dormant inside.

Moral of the day? For every setback we experience in a day, there are three blessings to compensate!
