I have mentioned it so many times that my new school has been keeping me so busy. Honestly, I have never worked as hard as this before…again I have to say I am not complaining because I enjoy working there…but the fact remains, I hardly have time to blog read and watch movie/tvshows.
SO…I decided to move out!
NOT move out school but move out of the house I have been living together with my brother and his wife and my father…AND I will move in to my school’s property.
My school has a mess on third floor, by living there I will safe so many time and can rest properly again. School starts at 7.30 AM and I have to leave home at 6.20 AM. Going to school is not the time problem here, my problem with time comes from my journey home. School ends at 4 pm, and if I go home straight away, it’ll only take about an hour ride (I am taking bus not my own vehicle)…but if I have things to do before I go home and leave the school around 5 pm, I will arrive at 7 pm (sometime more than 7 pm). This journey home and dealing with traffic jam is my number one time problem!! When I get home, I already feel so tired and all I want to do is doing nothing but being on my bed.
My time management becomes all screw up and I have things I haven’t done just because of the journey home. I can’t deal with that problem any longer.
And then there’s another important reason.
You know how I love my baby turtles. The other reasons why I need to move out is because of them. Before I work at this school, I have a couple of day off. I used those days to put my turtles outside and enjoy the sun…sunlight is good for turtle. Since I work here, I have no time to take them out 😦
My dear baby turtles are losing their quality time with the healthy sunlight. I feel so bad. I want them to be strong and healthy and happy. If I live near the school, I can let them enjoy the morning sun before I leave them to go to school.
So…the plan was to either find a room for rent near the school or find hoping there’s an empty room in school’s mess. I know that the school has mess for teacher but the last time I’ve heard it was full. One of the teachers told me she was going to cancel her ‘reservation’ and gave it to me. I was so thrilled BUT things weren’t as simple as it seemed.
I asked the person in charge with the mess whether I can take my pets or not. There was a bit of tough discussion because there are babies in the mess. I told her that my turtles will be in their tank and I only let them out in my room and outside the building. The only problem any baby can get from turtles is when the baby touches the turtles and then put the hand inside her mouth. YES turtles have salmonella that can cause stomach problem BUT it only happens when one digests it. I am not going to let any baby (except for my nephew because it seems that he has the same antibody as I am) touching my turtles for the baby’s own sake.
In short, I told her that it’s okay if the turtles aren’t allowed, I can find a room for rent. NO MATTER WHAT, I AM NOT GOING TO LEAVE MY DEAR KROTEN, PAPOE AND KUROME.
Long story short, she said that I and my dear turtles can live in the mess \(^_^)/
We will move there this Sunday 🙂
The good thing about this moving out of the house and moving in to the mess are:
I can have more free time to do things I like and finish school’s works
I won’t deal with the painful traffic jam again
…and my babies can enjoy the sun again 🙂
The plan for Kroten, Kurome and Papoe are
To let them enjoy the sun between 6 am to 7.25 am (walking from mess on the third floor to teacher’s office on first floor doesn’t even take 5 minutes 😉 on the roof. I have checked the roof and the sun is lovely and warm there.
To let them walk around school’s garden on Saturday morning. Kroten can finally enjoy grass under her feet again and Kurome and Papoe will enjoy it for the first time. This house I am living now has cemented front yard not grassy at all 😦
My turtles will be put under the windows and the blazing afternoon sun 🙂
