Hanging on

5 more hours to deadline for results entry. 3 consecutive sleepless nights tend to mess up one’s perceptions and senses. Well was listening to Dido’s song ‘White Flag’ in my itunes, letting it run over and over, especially liked the part on “…I will go down with this ship I won’t put my hands up and surrender…”

Suddenly felt that the song applies to teaching as well (strange association, going to blame it to lack of sleep). You cannot please everyone, given circumstances, limitations and at the end of the day I think I am going to stay in and give it another shot. One more chance and see if things are better next year.

“White Flag” Dido

I know you think that I shouldn’t still love you

I’ll tell you that

But if I didn’t say it

Well, I’d still have felt it

Where’s the sense in that?

I promise I’m not trying to make your life harder

Or return to where we were

Well I will go down with this ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I’m in love and always will be

I know I left too much mess

And destruction to come back again

And I caused but nothing but trouble

I understand if you can’t talk to me again

And if you live by the rules of ‘It’s over’

Then I’m sure that that makes sense

Well I will go down with this ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I’m in love and always will be

And when we meet

As I’m sure we will

All that was then

Will be there still

I’ll let it pass

And hold my tongue

And you will think

That I’ve moved on

Well I will go down with this ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I’m in love and always will be

Well I will go down with this ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I’m in love and always will be

I will go down with this ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag above my door

I’m in love and always will be
