Thanks a lot for the kind words from those who left some comments yesterday and Tuesday. I appreciate it so much. Right now, I've got clearer picture of what's happening. All I can say is I have to be patient for few months and find about what's the best next step for me. I know that it's not the end of the world and I have the tendency to freak out even before I sit and think about the solution for any problems. Insyallah, I believe there'll be a bright light at the end of the tunnel.
On another note, my students asked me about which is the label for somebody who like to butter up another person who is superior than him. They have heard about "ass kisser" and wonder if they can use it. There was a very intelligent student of mine said "apple polisher" is more polite to be used. YES! the second label is actually more polite because "ass kisser" is used in the teenagers slang.
