Day 42, 06.05.19. Monday.
Found a small tic-nymph on my abdomen on the left side last evening. It's been there for at least 12 hours as far as I know, checked it out several times today and there's no red ring around the bite yet. Still I feel a bit exhausted, could be several things, the tic included. Could be that I've frozen the last 4 nights and been eating a bit less, could also be vitamin deficiency. So I bought some eggs which will give me all the amino-acids I need, and some fish oil called tran. Gonna eat eggs and drink tran for a few days and see if my shape gets better. Most likely A, D or E vitamin that I'm lacking, or maybe some minerals like sinc, iron or magnesium. Today it's about a week until my best friend is finished with his master degree in nordic language and are coming to visit, it turns out that the weather forecast for next week is relatively ok. A bit cloudy but still warmer than this and last week. And that's a good thing, I need this soon...the warmth and the sun.
Earlier today I visited the
library again, use to take a trip two or three times a week to charge my laptop-battery, eat a bit and have a talk with the librarians. I wasn't aware of it, but today a whole class from the school came. They had some sort of book-renting day and I was fine with that, even with the noise, heard later that it was the noisiest class in the whole school. Didn't bother me much, I like children and I say let kids be kids. Children are noisy, if you can't handle that then you shouldn't have anything to do with kids...that's my philosophy anyway. I would like to raise children of my own one day, but so far I haven't met anyone that I consider stable enough to have children with.
I got so caught offguard when I heard one of the teachers started screaming at the kids, I noticed she was really annoyed to begin with and that's fine occationally, but after a few minutes she started yelling really loud, like not acceptably loud! And the reason, two boys hadn't taken off their bike-helmets and was running a bit around the library. The hell? They're kids! They need
the playtime more than they need school! I looked at the librarians, who looked surprised as well about her behavior and also gave me a look I idenitfied as; "should we do something?" I almost got up to grab the teachers arm and tell her to calm down, that's how bad I felt she was acting around the children.
Some people have serious issues with control, I got a flashback from an interview with a norwegian author, Jens Bjørneboe, who was a teacher himself and very concerned by what he identified as social problems. He in an interview in the 60's or 70's told the interviewer about the people in the school system, he called them weak people. As weak people they have little or no influence over adults, and thus are able to have this narcissistic need for domination and control over other people in their interaction with children. Bjørneboe expressed this was a big problem at that time, maybe it still is? I talked a bit with a couple of the kids that was left after the class had left and asked them about this teacher, I told them that it could be that she had a
very bad day today, but their answer was that she wasn't like this all the time, "...but she's having a bad day very often", one of them said. They also told me they sometimes could hear her across the rooms in the school. I asked if they were scared of her sometimes, they were not. I was still a bit worried, children are very sensitive to negativity and could cause long-term psychological issues that could manifest as pathologic tendencies as adults.
I've heard about what school was like in the 50's and 60's, but this is 2019!
I mean, you can easily google parenting and how to handle situations with children so they actually listen when you speak without you needing to be manipulative or strict. That teacher should in my opinion be sent to some behavioral-cource and learn how to interact with children properly, it's not very hard if you're willing to learn...and I'm not saying that making mistakes is not allowed, we're only humans, and making mistakes is part of being human. But limiting the mistakes we do should be what we should strive for to become better persons, when we are able to identify anything
as mistakes that is.
