They simply are. Especially for you, the Student Teacher. You can't nominate yourself for PAK (whatever the hell PAK is), you can't give detailed feedback on any issue. You just sit there, trying not to yawn or look glazed over or murderous at the injustice of it all.
Apart from this observation, however, it was a good day. There are three new students, just starting school. They're all boys and currently lovely. I got hugged, twice. I really need to find a way to stop the students doing that. No-one else ever wants to bloody hug me, especially not men, so what's with the young ones, eh? Aww, it is sweet, but I don't want that kind of liability.
It's sick I even have to worry about it, really.
