    Who even factors in traveling to work? Parents evening is a social event IMO.

    If I was a teacher, I'd probably make decent money on the side doing private tutoring. I'm sure after a while, you'll get creative enough to save time on lesson plans and marking homework and ****.
    I believe my mum used to do that. There's always middle class parents wanting help for their kids with 11 plus etc.

    Thoughts on Often by The Weeknd
    Was lit when it came out like 2 years ago. Videos is decent too. I find I'm a fiend with music though, I'm always searching for a new hit, cuz the old one just doesn't do it the same way anymore.

    Don't think that is accurate. I know a couple of teachers both pulling in above 50k p/a, I know another pulling much more than that as a locum head teacher. When you consider the holiday they get too, it a good salary. How many other jobs are there where you get 13 weeks of holiday and take home above 50k. None of them are actual classroom teachers though, all work in senior management roles.
    Headteachers earn a fortune but it's such a specialist job that few people who ever enter the profession can ever hope to do it, and that's implying that most of them do, which I don't think is the case when you consider there are headteacher shortages everywhere. Imagine being in charge of some *****y comprehensive in London that's in special measures. The stress would kill you.

    It would also be a fake Marilyn Monroe quote used by these basic female dogs too.

    if your talented and can hack it, its an opportunity that's there for 'young' people tbh.

    My mother is the deputy head of one of the largest colleges in the country.. also one of the worst. They have been failing ofsteds and in dire financial problems for the past 5 years. In that time they have gone through head after head, and now the new head is 37. That is shockingly young for someone to hold one of the highest jobs in secondary/college education. All his senior team below him are in their 50s-60s, as were all his predecessors. But as you said, there is a shortage of those willing to take the absolute ****-storm type posts in crumbling schools and colleges, and that opens up the door for younger candidates who can show a bit of originality in their approach to solving the schools problems, and stick through the hard times.

    Ooh feisty. Growl.

    Politics is good if you are in a course at a top RG uni (i am not counting the run of the mill RG's). The likes of Oxbridge, LSE, UCL, Durham... they would look good on the CV. Otherwise, you're just a pretender really and no one in academic circles would take what you say seriously.

    Starting to think that my life plan for the next 10 years should be: Life in England + Money in china.

    Even though I am much much less negative about brexit then most people my age, the whole picture in the UK right now, and even before the vote, is looking dire.

    China is by no means perfect.. and things do seem to be settling down here after the huge growth we have have seen in the last 20+ years.. but I still trust china to out-perform the UK substantially over the next 10 years. I also have a lot more faith in the competency of the Chinese government, over what seems to be an increasingly dodgy set of affairs back home. I don't agree with all the decisions over here, but one thing that cant be denied is that they are ruthlessly efficient at doing what is needed to be done for the sake of the country as a whole.

    But, I cant live here. And I don't want my family/near-future kids to grow up here. So the life has to be in England. Which makes things a bit more complicated. I want my business to remain in China, and all my wealth to be created here.. But I want to utilize that wealth back in England to give my family a really decent quality of life that is less effected by the ups and downs of an unstable UK.

    I think that every business/work related decision for the next few years needs to be based around that principle: does it fit with the idea of: Life=england, Money=china.

    But this is the double standard

    If a white artists says something, it transcends culture, but if a black artist says something, it's just a part of black culture.
