Here’s a bit of basic Wisdom.

I have spent the past few weeks marking scripts and marking time. Come this day 2 months from now, I will be working on something new and I have no idea what it will be. So let’s talk about the more definite parts of my life. I will start with the good news/bad news combination.

The good news? I have finished marking every test script I have on hand, short 4 absentees from 1 class who will take it during recess tomorrow. The bad news? Tomorrow I am going to be giving the same old lecture on studying, cheating and integrity to 124 gentlemen, less a handful. A pitiful handful.

Here are the list of complaints:
1. Fail to read carefully.
2. Fail to understand that cheating is NOT ok.
3. Fail to cheat properly and copy wrong answers.

4. Fail to submit homework.
Homework is never for the teacher’s benefit, it’s for the student’s. I will have more free time to do my stuff if I did not spend those hours marking homework, and I sure as hell am not gaining any benefit from using my red ink.
5. Fail to understand that if you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.

And honestly, a lot of people are going to fail at this rate if they don’t wake up.
