Daily Prompt: ORDERLY

In response to today’s one-word prompt: Orderly

I registered to do my undergraduate course at Holy Cross College, at seventeen I wasn’t nervous to be taught by nuns, I already had enough experience in Presentation Convent school, where we were taught by Irish nuns.

I think they are the most efficient teachers I ever had, they were strict, liked things to be orderly, we completely understood what we were expected to do. They were dedicated teachers, who made sure their students were performing up to their potential, sometimes they encouraged us to go beyond, they believed it never hurts to try to not just work up to our capability but go beyond.”Do not give up was their motto.”

It helps when we learn to be organized I strongly believe the educational institutions, should follow the example of the nuns. These days I find kids are not very organized, not just studies, but also how they look after their personal things, their clothes, their room, I mean the overall things, it teaches responsibility. I’ve had a tough time instilling this quality in my near and dear ones.

We watch on TV hoarding, messy bedrooms, clothes thrown around the bedroom and beyond. We were strictly instructed   to  stop leaving our clothes on the bed, floor, or anywhere else. If anyone in our residence did something like this, a meeting was called and the importance of orderliness was emphasized, sometimes the teacher did not hesitate to point out the culprit.

The term ‘Independence,’ is impressive, it has its drawbacks, it leads to problematic behavior. Young minds have to learn to be orderly to keep their life from falling apart.
