Notice: Hiatus to focus on A levels

I’ll be sitting for the AS’ level exams soon. It starts on the third of May and ends on seventh of June. I don’t like to cram before an exam, so I’ll just read condensed notes and key points.

On a different note, Happy Labour day in advance.

Google Forms

I do apologize most profusely to the readers of this blog for not being active as of late. I’ve been under the weather for the past few days. Sadly, that doesn’t excuse me from school tests and I have a lot to catch up on for the second quarter, not to mention that my half yearly exams are due in a week. Fortunately, exams are when emotions run high so I’ll be more active next month thanks to the inevitable surplus of emotion that is likely to result from the exams. Maybe it’ll add to my writing? I hope so!

Oh, and I was just experimenting with google forms, pretty useful website if I may say so.

Have a good day, and take good care of your health lest you end up like me. Not that it’s too uncommon to have a cold during the cold month of November.

~Peace

edit: Do not attempt to fill out the survey as it is just a demo :p

Teacher’s Day Speech

Honourable Principle, Senior vice Principle (Academic Affairs), Senior Vice Principle (Student Affairs),

Academic Supervisors, School management, and my fellow students,

I stand before you humbled.

It is a great honor for me to be given the opportunity to speak on such an auspicious day.

Teaching is a noble profession which has been around for time immemorial. Centuries ago Alexander the great praised his mentor Aristotle by articulating,”I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.”

I am certain that I speak for my fellow students when I say that we owe our teachers a debt of gratitude.

It is because of their life’s work that so many of us are capable of being active contributors in our respective fields.

My teachers have taught me that being a good student takes much more than just academic excellence.

It comes hand in hand with punctuality, grit, time management, and a positive attitude towards failure.

I learned that the roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet, something Aristotle himself has taught.

That there can be joy in the struggle.

There can be a sense of achievement in facing the struggle of overcoming who we were only yesterday so as to create a better today and envision an even better tomorrow.

Self-effacing, whole-heartedly dedicated, patient, thoughtful, these are but to name a few of the adjectives which come to mind when reflecting about the daunting routine our teachers go through every day to ensure that we students are on the right track.

It goes without saying that, none of our greatest achievements would have been possible to accomplish had it not been for our teachers.

They nurtured the latent talent they saw in us at a time we ourselves were incapable of seeing it laying dormant within us.

If not for the counsel and criticism of our teachers, we would not be able to enjoy the same quality of life as we do currently.

Student’s look to their teachers for academic assistance as well as moral support. Encouragement can go a long way and motivate students to display goal-oriented behavior.

Our teachers lead by example and it is through them that we pick up the trifecta of good qualities:

Curiosity, Passion and Resilience.

Under the tutelage of a teacher a pupil may begin to discover them self in a new, albeit positive light.

Learning is a lifelong journey and our teachers prepare us for the upcoming trials and tribulations which are to come.

With that being said, teachers shape our outlook on life and make it possible to face whatever may come. I have come to learn that happiness is to feel good by doing good.

It is only fair that we reciprocate the effort our teachers put into making better people of us all and also take a moment to appreciate all they have done for us.

I would like to end my speech on a high note by quoting the Great Teacher Onizuka who said,

“A good teacher can help you get into a good college, a great teacher can give you a childhood you will never forget which will be more of an asset.”

Some fictional teachers worth noting:

  1. Snape
  2. Onizuka
  3. Zetsubou Sensei
  4. John Keating
  5. Dewey Finn
  6. Dan Dunne

Editorial: Declaration of Principles

For those of us who have had the opportunity to watch the Classic ‘Citizen Kane’, the declaration of principles will be a familiar subject. Also notice how the paper is now only ‘2 cents’ … the meaning of that has not been lost on me.

Much in the same way, in the Harry Potter universe the marauder’s map has the following pledge…

The first pledge is a declaration of good will, whereas the second is an oath to use the map for delinquency.

However, ironically it was Charles Foster Kane who used his paper ‘The New York Inquirer’ for his own ends instead of furthering the public interest while Harry Potter attempted to use the marauder’s map as a force for good.

A tool is neither good nor bad, such traits of morality should not be applied to it. It is either effective or ineffective. The way it is used is up to its user.

Having said all that,

here is a pledge of our own:

Here at Inkuisitive Mind we realize that it is highly unnecessary to have an opinion about everything. From hence forth it will be our policy not to take everything seriously and in a literal sense but to focus on esoteric knowledge nuggets instead of rants lacking constructive criticism which can be found in en masse in most social media comment sections.

Amen.
