The Window
Staring out the window
Staring at the window
Staring through the window
The world staring back
The glares
The stares
The people unawares
The world rushing past
Just another face
Just another place
See the world
See the rush

Evanescence Concert
I went with my fiance to see Evanescence in concert at the NEC in Birmingham last night. It was amazing. Amy Lee has such energy and I've never heard such an impressive vocal range. I don't think she missed a note all night, and she was bouncing all over the stage. Add to that 'Glitterati' and 'Seether' as support bands then throw in a piano that appears as if from nowhere, and you've got a good night out.
Apart from getting a little crushed and stomped on I enjoyed it.

Comments Sorted
Decided I didn't like the blogger comments so I'm back on Haloscan. The change around did provide me with the opportunity to put track back on so it wasn't a total waste of time.
I passed my other assignment this week which I'm fantastically happy about, perhaps it's not all bad after all.

Blog Changes
So Blogger have changed their site and I'm having a difficult time working out the changes. I must be getting old. I'm working out how to use their comments system at the minute, but don't worry normal service will be resumed shortly.

Teaching week
I feel quite tired out after my week of teaching. Wouldn't be so bad if I had time to prepare and I was teaching what I thought. It's really chaotic; perhaps I need a holiday. Hmm!

Why Bother?
Why bother to do anything nice for anyone?
I can't think why I should.
I held some students back at the end of a psychology lesson I was teaching as they had refused to work. I reminded them that they were playing with their futures and that they needed to take a more mature attitude towards their education.
One of them got very angry, shouted at me, shouted some more and when I asked him to leave as I had another class arriving, he went for me. I'm lucky his friends dragged him away.
I was really shaken. I really don't feel safe any more. Everyone's quick to notice if a teacher looses their temper, but who is there to prevent students from being aggressive towards a teacher?
I don't get danger money, in fact as I'm a student, I don't even get paid. Why should I bother trying to help anyone.

Books I've read this month - April
This month I read three books:

The Bell Jar
The first is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
This book is a largely autobiographical view of Sylvia Plath's life. Detailing the mental breakdown of a talented young woman. Similar in content to Girl Interrupted and Prozac Nation, this book sets the bar very high for all those who are to follow.

Blood and Gold
The next book is Blood and Gold from 'The Vampire Chronicles' written by Anne Rice.
Anne Rice is one of my favourite authors as I find her writing completely consuming. Her details in both description and history are astounding. Blood and Gold is no exception to her talent. The book describes the life of Marius the Vampire, one of the oldest remaining vampires, throughout the centuries he has lived and slept. Epic stuff!

Hey Nostradamus
The final book I read this month was Hey Nostradamus by Douglas Coupland.
I was drawn to this book in the shop by it's unusual cover. It is an account of a high school shooting told from the point of view of four people affected by the massacre. It's a fantastic mix of harrowing images intertwined with black comedy. Its unapologetically look at the hypocrisy in Christianity makes it worth the read on it's own.
God is now here.
God is no where.

Rolling, rolling, rolling... along nicely
Not only is it bank holiday Monday, which means a day off, but my lovely fiance has finished helping me work on the new look for my blog. Things seem to be going in my favour, it's great.
I've also got paid work as an exam invigilator for the next couple of months. *Big sigh of relief resounds from the poor student*
As if that's not enough I'm about to get a coffee. I could just lie down and die now - life doesn't get any more perfect, does it?
