It Is true that when you actually re-read your writing after a while, you’d sometimes doubt whether you were really saying what you meant, or you question if it was objective or not.

I Fail

(aftermath of OSK results)

This is not a good day at all. I felt like i am the worst teacher at best, a citizen in despair at best.

But I guess its gonna be a long shot for us. Sorry.
