    Current mood: bored

    What a great beginning to a new school year. The first couple of days of school have been great.

    The kids have been somewhat respectful for me as my first day of teaching. I know kids expected not to have any homework on the first week of school, but guess what? I gave them an unexpected assignment. A very good one, in fact. It was an essay on what moment in history had affected them the most. One of the outstanding papers I had read was by Talia Monroe. Her paper stood out from the rest of the class because she had actually taken time to write her paper and use detail and whatnot. Very impressing for second day of school work, especially after being on summer vacation. One thing that stood out on her paper was that her friend had died during the attack and it had changed her perspective on life completely. That's what I liked about the paper. It seems as if she had matured after the incident; more or less opened her eyes to gain a new perspective on life if you would call it.

    -- Eyes looked over at the paper next to him at the " A+ " making with a circle around it. --

    But other than that, the kids have been really good. Some girl even came up to me and asked me if I was a new kid. I don't think I look that young now, do I? Of course not. Anyways, it's been a long day and I think I'm going out to this new club that opened up two nights ago and get drunk. Good night Dover.
