Stress makes your brain wanna explode.
And boredom drives you nuts.
I've been a teacher for a month, and I dare to say that I can get pretty bored when I'm not teaching. Since one of my classes is taken by a practical teacher, I have a lot of time to spare. Even after marking worksheets and updating files, I'm still left with a lot of time to spare. To the point I'm counting every hour till punch out.
And it drives me nuts.
I know I should feel blessed 'coz a lot of teachers out there are burned out by the end of the day.
Maybe I got used to being a zombie during my teaching practice that now I'm a real teacher doing what real teachers actually do (e.g. gossip, marketing, bargaining, browsing catalogs - in which I don't do) I feel...empty.
But still, I'm not complaining. I have books to keep me company. And perhaps a PSP when the moolah rolls in.
So would I rather be stressed or bored?
I'd choose stress.
At least my brain is working. Hard.
If I'm bored, my brain suffers from inactivity.
This guy is the testimony of what boredom could do to you.
AFTER 55 DAYS IN QUARANTINE -
I was eventually let out of hospital on the 2nd Jan, but then brought back in on the 18th Jan and diagnosed with a more serious form of TB... As a result, I have been back in quarantine since the 18th Jan, and all up now I have spent 55 days on the inside of a single room in hospital... This is starting to take it's toll on my mental stability, and this song is about the impact (or lack thereof) it has had so far.
Ironically, he makes being bored fun though.
