Looking back... and Forth...

Looking back, it's been 2 years since my last post.

Funnily enough, that's been the approximate amount of time that I've started my bond at my posted school.

When I started this blog way back in NIE, my naive self never thought of a few things that would affect the postings to this blog. I never anticipated:

1) That my work would take up so much of my time and energy that at the end of it, I wouldn't really want to do something as mentally taxing as blogging. [Other than the other after-curriculum activities that take up more of my time and less of my energy that is]

2) That I would have to live in apprehension of having this blog found out by my current employers and, ever since a certain incident concerning another teacher, face the fear of disciplinary action or even legal action.

3) That, er, work is often so boring and routine that there wouldn't be that much to blog about anyway. [How much commentary can one make on revision papers and exams?]

So after all these combined, I have to rethink the idea behind this whole blog. Often, there are things happening that I just wish I could blog, but knew that if I did so, I would get into very real trouble with people. In order to get past all these, I have to rethink the whole direction I have taken with this blog and where I want it to go from here.

So sadly, I have to officially declare a hiatus on this blog. I don't want to completely shut it down, because I think the concept is a real help to some groups of people out there. [Those who sent me mail, thanks] I'm just going to take a break and take the time to redo this blog.

Thanks for the support I've received! And finest wishes to all the other fellow educators and educators-to-be out there!
