    Wah... un-motivated staff... if you don't like the job then don't do lor.. hehe. You sound as if you are really under-paid. In the current situation outside, jobs are hard to find. Just stick with it and maybe it can help you past time and maybe buy you a few more rows of provia 400... hehehhe...

    btw, remember to ask for the terms I've posted earlier.. it's important. If they agree, I think ur motivation will increase 100000 times

    Lessons got to plan and conduct,Have to learn new software which i never learnt before and teach them.
    furthermore im study my part time degree soon, if i learn all these software i dun think i can have time to study for my degree course.
    dun think im cut out to teach.sigh...feels so lonely stuck in the lab all day....work early leave late. talkabout what bull the 44hrs a week manpower law or what not.
    i even mailed my so called "manager" telling him i feel im not cut out for this job.

    sorry if u guys had to read this....just feel kinda stressed out, lonely and frustrated..

    I'm sorry to hear that; is this your first job? If yes, welcome to the working world!

    Although I do not have alot of working experience; what I've learnt so far is that there's never a perfect job where everything falls into place; neither is a certain job more 'relaxing' or less stressful that the one we have. Every job has its challenges and difficulties which are unique in nature thus it's pretty pointless to compare apples with oranges.

    As for teaching, well I'm glad that I was kind of 'prepared' for teaching life as I knew before when I was posted to my school, most of the 'learning' occured on the job, thus we learn on the job. I'm still learning!

    Dig in and hang in there eadwine; it's fine to grumble (I do that pretty often) but don't let it consume you! For me, despite my (usual) rants, I do remind myself that I need to be thankful that I do have a job and a steady source of income as compared to some who are struggling to hold on to one or still hunting for one!

    Believe me, it's part of our 'growing up' process!

    Adam, you should try teaching in a neighbourhood secondary school. It is very different from primary school.

    Eadwine, take everything in your stride. Work is never easy and it must be completed one way or another. Nonetheless, we should never let work affect us emotionally. Follow the Nike motto, just do it. Don't think about it when you reach home. Complain to your gf to vent your frustrations.

    I agree with Adam that every job has its difficulties, so just hang it in there. If you are clear about your direction in life, do what you need to do. Quit if appropriate. After all, you are not making a career out of this one, and you do not need to bring home the bacon, so you have more freedom than most to explore around.

    Take care and good luck.

    actually this wasn't wat i wanted.
    I wanted a job i might like, someone to teach and guide me even though when i work, i gain experience, they can pay me little little lah but dun exploit me till like everyday work late and all.

    i guess here got no such jobs...
