What happens when you're stuck at home staring at the screen too much.

Songs like these begin to make perfect sense. (Runs off and dances with shiny razors)

At least inanimate objects can never break your heart.

Hope things are taking a turn for the better. Went back to DJ today to start relief teaching and walked into a moral class after not touching the moral subject for two years. And I think I will never get what civics class will ever be about. Am I supposed to just come in and tell my students that they should love their families and be patriotic? When it comes to character building, I still believe that attempting to build character through pedantic, classroom means is really a waste of time. I definitely do not see any ideals and values passed on to the students after copying down class exercises. Nevertheless, I will try to make my lessons more discussion oriented and so we will talk about the issues that matter at the very least.

Being a teacher is not easy, but I'll try to do my best!
