Re: L's Journal

Yes, I do wonder why JMG is so Trump fixated. I've found with a lot of blogs that I get obsessed for a while and read the whole back catalogue but then you start to feel as if you were covering the same ground with slightly different topics. I went through the same cycle with the ERE blog. You do st...

Re: L's Journal

I didn't stumble across that whole vein of thinking until post-university. I think part of the reason why I've just bumbled on from one thing to another is that most of my energies have been absorbed in revising my world view and working out what I actually want out of life. Have you kept up with JM...

Re: L's Journal

BookloverL: I have read the rest of the journal now and my Holmesian powers of detection did suggest that you might be a another one that the teaching profession has chewed up and spat out! I managed the PGCE, mainly because I was fortunate to have a sympathetic mentor/ head of department. I found t...

Re: L's Journal

Hello, Sorry I admit I've only just stumbled on your journal and I haven't read all of it so I apologise if I go over ground already covered. I'm in a similar sort of situation to you- mid-twenties and living with parents in the UK to save money, only doing a full time boring office job instead of p...

Re: "Hi" from Arizona

@PhilosopherSarah yeah I've got some classes that prove the point about learning/ not learning under compulsion. They've been doing German for five years, mostly taught by people rightly considered competent (until they got me that is :D). 'Du bist', 'ich moechte' and 'ich bin gefahren' have all dra...

Re: "Hi" from Arizona

@PhilosopherSarah I teach German, ages 11-16 (in the UK- not sure what grades that equates to). That sounds like an excellent idea. Dealing with kids in that kind of situation is great. Dealing with groups of 25-30 whose interest/ aptitude varies enormously and whose lives revolve mainly around X-bo...

Re: "Hi" from Arizona

Hi Sarah! I've always half-wanted to be an academic due to a love of sitting in the library all day, but I know it's not really like that! I've ended up as a school teacher, which I'm not really enjoying either. What do you dislike about the university system? Good luck with the building! I'm fairly...

Re: ERE UK

@MDFIRE2024 thanks! I've read the posts off and on. I haven't posted before though. @chenda ah no, I meant arts in the sense of arts/ humanities. I did German actually, which is what I'm now teaching (or trying to). I'm in the East Midlands, not that far from London but the rents aren't too bad. It'...

ERE UK

Hello all! I am 25 and live in England. I came across ERE a couple of years ago, basically did nothing but read the blog for the next few days and then read the book. I'm an INTP, and basically just want to live the life of a gentleman scholar, not kowtowing to a load of morons. Having said that, I ...
