Don’t expect from me…

no good news small

Slavoj Žižek, one of my favourite thinkers. I especially enjoy his sense of humour:

“Humanity is okay, but 99% of people are boring idiots.” 

And he can be suprisingly inspiring:

“I’m a pessimist in the sense that we are approaching dangerous times. But I’m an optimist for exactly the same reason. Pessimism means things are getting messy. Optimism means these are precisely the times when change is possible.”

…I can’t focus, I’m sorry…

I am far more freaked out about this week’s upcoming exams than my students seem to be. The irony is not lost on me, oh no, I am painfully aware that I wasn’t even nearly this stressed (or prepared!) for my own exams. Shit, I hope they’ve studied!
