First time in my life

First time in my life

Every body has a first time in their life: first time to cry, first interview, first job… We cannot know the feeling until we really experience it.

Today I had the first time in my life to eat my words, though I was not willing to do that.

About 5 months ago I was invited to give an introductory lesson for a summer school at this month. I was (and I am) happy to do that because I love teaching, especially to talented youths. The organizer was very efficient: she sent me reminding emails two weeks before the session time, also she sent me participants’ name list, health condition… I also planned well for my lesson and was planning to impress my students (and I believed that I would!).

However early this morning, when I came to my office and had a last check with the session’s time and venue, I found that the time should be yesterday afternoon rather than today! What happened? On my diary it should be yesterday! I called the organizer and found that I have really missed the boat! My goodness! I am very upset about it. My principle of life is: if I have promised anything, I will try my best to do it. If I can’t make it, I will make an arrangement in advance. I would rather to upset myself rather than make others disappointed. But this time….

This is my first experience to eat my words. The feeling is …BAD!
