school romance

it's an old recurring issue but like an old record, it keeps on playing and playing. yes, students have confided in me that they were jilted by their girlfriends and have now sort of in a very depressing mood and no more interested in studies. they have almost given up on life and are hanging in there just because they are still young and know that deep in their heart, they will survive and have new romances or love. the thing is school romances rarely last because as one grows older, you'll meet new acquaintances, new people, new interests, new outlook and new perception of what makes a good life partner... so, students, i would advise you all to hold your love.. do not commit yourself until after you have started working... it's never too late or too old... love can wait.. your studies and career won't... so, muck up and concentrate on your studies....

the reading culture

do students or children nowadays read a lot? when i say 'read' i mean story books and novels and not just your textbooks, reference books, comics, magazines and newspapers. what books or novels have you read lately? do you agree that books are often better than the movie versions? it's a bit surprising that some students don't seem to have read fairy tales or children's stories like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Puss in the Boots, Alice in WOnderland ( the classic book version not the movie ) etc.....
