i think youre generalizing community college students... they are really no different from uni students in the first two years either, unless youre teaching at an ivy league, overachiever school, you will always come across the lazy kids that dont wanna work. also, you teach english, am i correct? english isnt exactly loved by all... its a requirement and most people dont look forward to required classes. perhaps you can take a different approach in class and get the kids involved? ive always believed that the students and teachers really do play off each other moods, and its hard to exactly place the blame entirely on the students or the teacher since they bounce off each other, dyou know what im saying? the enthusiasm of a teacher can really change the atmosphere of the classroom... maybe present the material in a way that is exciting and new to the students. or maybe you should just follow your heart, write during the day and still teach at night for a lil extra money. night classes usually have an older and more serious crowd at them.
really thou, whats the point of life if you cant enjoy yourself?
you should always follow your heart...
You cannot kickstart a dead horse
....This is fucked up, fucked up....
This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me
I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
