Second Time Around

Sometimes I wonder if this is only my feeling. Sometimes I wonder if I think too much of it. As I am quite observant, I enjoy looking at people. You can never know how funny one can be, how vulnerable one can be, how ignorant one can be, how important one can be, until the moment you 'see' how they are in the way you see them.

I am currently doing my practicum as an English teacher in a school. Little does one know that the very school I am in now, is the very same school that I used to walk and go to for five years, years ago. Yes, I studied there.

It has been three months now. So you can imagine how many people that I have been observing throughout this three-month time. Many. I have seen a variety of people with a variety of attitudes, and I have gathered a variety of accidental knowledge. Never you mind about those 'knowledge'.

But this is the best part, for me. I see the next generation of me. Of my friends. Of my classmates. Of my schoolmates.

I see a student who speaks exactly like how my friend did at school. I see students who walk exactly like those gangsters wannabe during my years. I see a girl who looks exactly like the girl that I used to flirt with at school. I see students who make themselves a nerd, exactly like my old classmates. And I see a boy who thinks and argues exactly like how I used to do in my class in those years. I see what I saw in those school years not so long ago, now.

So, is this some kind of a message, in which it tells us that the world and history are repeating themselves. It is totally weird in my feelings when I have to see how close and how exact they are to me and those who had been around me. I feel like I have somehow entered a new dimension that brings me back to the old days. I feel like I am there to go through my life for the second time.

I guess this is life. What had happened a long time ago, will eventually happen again.

Anyway, have you ever been in this kind of situations? That you see people around you doing things exactly like how you and your friends did years back. And some of them even look the same!

this reminds me of what my lecturer have said when i learned psycholinguistics. teenagers. emotions. self-reflects. it's good, it's fun as you see yourself in the students and sometimes you know that how pathetic your life can be in teenage life ^.^. i wish to see what u saw in my practicum, later on :)
