    Thank you! You too! Read that you are doing yoga! I love yoga as well but haven't been attending my classes because I work in the evenings :-/

    Hi, Qimi! It's so nice to hear from you. And thanks for the wishes.

    The students are good and learning fast, but meetings with district officials kept me quite busy this year. We had to take lots of security measures for the safety of students. All the schools of KPK are on high alert after the massacre in Peshawar Army public school last month.

    Hope you're keeping well. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Qimi,
    I am well. Can't get over a cold, b/c the kids are always sick from daycare. The daycare worker is negligent when it comes to wiping noses and making them wash their hands. It's infuriating!

    Anyway, I hope you feel good and are enjoying work. Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you, Qimissung! It's so good to be here. Thank goodness for electronic tablets standing in for broken computers. I missed this. How have you been?

    I'm glad to see your friendly presence still around qimi

    My feelings about school are somewhat mixed. In general terms it's been a great experience, although at times I've felt disappointed by my not doing better at some courses, and at other times I feel bad for being downgraded when I know I deserve better. And then I had a bitter experience with a few classmates last year. You know, the sort of betrayal/mistreatment thing that causes a mixture of feelings as well. Bitter experiences have been few if I look at the big picture, but they tip the scales somewhat negatively all the same.

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout

by qimissung on 12-15-2012 at 02:13 AM
I live in the United States of America, and we had another school shooting today. With horror I listened to the news reports that a gunman had gone into an elementary school and killed 27 people, 20 of them “children between the ages of 5 and 10.” And I listened tiredly and wearily to the usual rhetoric of the newscast without end as they recounted the “worst school shooting in an elementary school.”
I guess they are doing the best they can, but you simply can’t put a qualifier or adjective

In Memoriam

by qimissung on 04-03-2012 at 11:05 PM
One of my former students-he graduated last year-was shot and killed last night around 10 o'clock.

He had just finished playing a game of basketball and was sitting in a car on a dark street, with his cousin. They were waiting for his cousin's ride when another car drove up. It was someone they knew and they argued over a girl his cousin had been seeing. The young man in the car pulled out a gun and shot them. Victor was shot two times in the back. He was treated at a nearby hospital,

The Anger and The Anguish

by qimissung on 01-04-2012 at 02:24 PM
I read several good books in 2011. I read "Candide," "The Crying of Lot 49", "Housekeeping," "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," and "The Dubliners." I read others, but these I read last fall and today it is of "The Dubliners" I speak.

I've been wanting to read something by Joyce. Eventually I hope to read "Ulysses." I think that might be akin to saying that someday I'd like to climb Mount Everest, for

The Bird's Nest

by qimissung on 12-27-2011 at 03:20 PM
looking at it I knew it was different
a bird's nest
full of hope and fear
and the cavalier fulsomeness of life
the blind ability to get up each day under the weight of it all
to go out every day believing you were one of the masses
dressed in the same uniform
believing the same things
that god is good
that love will find a way
believing or hoping to believe that
the others would not notice your vampiric differences

I acquire some books

by qimissung on 12-04-2011 at 08:13 PM
I got up yesterday morning, a Saturday, around 5:45. I washed my face and dressed and walked to my car in the dark. I stopped by my local Starbucks and treated myself to a tall mocha.

I then made my way down Midway to 635; from there to Central Expressway from which I exited at Northwest Highway. My destination was the Half-Price Books located there, or rather the warehouse that I knew was located near it.

Once I arrived I noticed, somewhat to my chagrin, that there
