I've been driving Mrs T to and from work this past week (and taking her on any errands she needs) because of her broken toe.

Technically, it is only a hairline fracture and with her 'boot' she got from the doctor she could drive (though with a bit of discomfort), but I'd rather she not drive till it's healed.
If she had to hard brake or something, even a dull ache of a hairline fracture would smart like hell.

Besides, it gives us more time to see each other in the morning and afternoon. :hug:

I did a lot today! Held the door open for a blind man who was training his new seeing eye dog. Then I helped a old woman get on the subway.
And I decided to share my spare time with you guys! See how thoughtful I am! LOL

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM!!! He will only benefit from it in the future. You are not doing him any favors by letting it slide.

Constructive criticism is overrated. These teens don't give a frak about doing better :P

I did add a big letter with my feedback to let him know what I'd do better next time.
Im sure he whipped his bum with it cause he passed the test.
University students these days are lazy

Having gone to University as a student with people half my age, I can tell you that while some
are very lazy and don't give a frak about anything except partying all the time, the majority
are suffering from low self-esteems because they have never either been able to figure out how
to do better or no one has ever given a crap about helping them do better. I know for a fact
that you are that person to inspire those who need it and want it. So don't be so pessimistic
and maybe survey your students and ask them do you want my help so you can do better at
the University and in life. I am willing to bet you will get more people saying YES than those
saying NO. I know in one way it is not your job to do this, but you are an academic role model
for these kids and sometimes all they need is a little inspiration to gain the confidence that
they are otherwise lacking. Try it! See what happens. Remember, if you don't give a frak, why
should they?

Well I gave too much fraks in previous years and only got taken advantage off.
You have to understand that University in NL isn't as much a privilege as it is on other countries.
You have to be smart enough, but it is not more expensive than other types of education. Meaning they take forever to finish their degrees.
When I went to uni things were still a bit different. Most people cared. Students now or basically teenagers now are just a bit more... *sshole-isch.
I have 9 students under my wing again starting januari for their bachelor thesis. We'll see what happens but lastyear during the psychobiology rotation I was so dissapointed. I was so excited (first years teacher) and most of the class was like 'if I pass ... ill be fine'. No motivation in this group seriously. Which is fine because they won't get a job like mine with their gradelist :P

I always thought your students treated you like a hero. They pat you on the back and have a huge feast in your honor.

Not just university students - there's a young girl I work with who told me her math result. I was genuinely shocked at how bad it was and how at ease with this she seemed. And often times our students (wrestling) are ridiculously laid back, yet get irritated when someone who puts in a lot of effort gets results.

Irritates me :(
