The joys of teaching

I spent two hours in my office at the University this afternoon answering questions from students, only to get home and find another 32 super urgent messages in my Inbox...

I really love what I do, but I admit that it tests my patience when students expect me to do their research for them. Or when I have to explain why it isn't okay to beat up their little brother in public to observe how people react to abuse. Plus, I want to scream when they tell me that in an academic research library they couldn't find anything on gender socialisation. Not to mention that it doesn't seem to occur to them to ask a librarian.

All I want to do tonight is eat the coconut rice and dumplings that are steaming, and enjoy being alone in the house...
