How’s your feeling when it’s supposed to be an important day and everything’s already prepared, but suddenly your shoe heel broke? That’s a pretty moodkill yesterday. I had a group presentation and came to campus in my best appearance (with formal suits and black formal higheels), but everything crashed when the heel of my right shoe broke. God, I felt like crying at the moment. I glued the heel with wood glue just for temporary repairment because I didn’t have any time buying the new one. I think God must have pitied me because my presentation went so well and I got a small reward as the best speaker of the presentation. Only a Silverquint Chunkybar chocolate, and though I felt like a child recieving a thing like this I was undoubtely happy.
It’s been a while since I got something as reward from my lecturer. In high school I’d always get a reward from my teacher as the one of five top scorers, mostly were chocolates. I don’t know what is it about teachers and chocolates, but I’m grateful enough to recieve their rewards. I really appreciate it. I don’t mind about the chocolates though, but those have a special meaning for me. Maybe this time is the most special because what happened before the presentation. I thought I couldn’t do it, but then it happened smoothly, and finnaly I got a small reward for my efforts to give a best performance in presentation.
Actually, I find kinda amusing because I did once a similar thing to my course students. The first thing that appeared in my head at the moment was, “Now I’m the one who get a gift.” 😆 they were not showing much enthusiasms as I gave them their rewards. Me in the other hand had been grining like crazy and even let a goofy smile plastered on my face in journey to home. It seemed that I couldn’t handle my excitement as well as my former students.
First ‘actual’ reward for being the best after 2 years studying in college. Hahaha..
Even my black cat is grinning for me. 😉
