I’ve said this before, but I’m not going to repeat myself. We’re all sexual beings. We have the same wants and needs. Having a small space to do your life’s mission is a necessity for everyone to have peace and quiet. Our homes and our lives are meant to be, but sometimes, we have to fight a bit.
The issue is that when we live in small spaces, we often feel like we have a bit of a lot. Small spaces make us feel insecure, like we don’t have enough to do. And when we feel insecure, we’re less likely to listen to our intuition and get outside ourselves, which is another problem. In reality, when you live in a little space, you have lots of space.
To us, it may seem like there is little there, but if we look at it from a few different perspectives, it’s a lot. If you’ve got a room big enough to fit your entire family in, that means there is a lot of space to do stuff. If there’s a closet that fills the entire left wall, that means there is space to sleep. If there’s a desk that fits your whole desk, that means there is space to work.
Our perspective, though, is that we are so used to living in big, crowded spaces; that even our own little spaces feel smaller than they actually are, like they are crammed together to fit into a tiny little compartment. In fact, a study done by the University of Sydney’s School of Education found that students had the tendency to be more organized in their small living spaces than in their big, crowded schools.
It’s not that students just need more space to be more organized, but that they need more space to have more time to organize themselves. It’s one thing to be overly productive, but it’s another to be overloaded.
It’s true that students need more room. But it’s not that they need more room to be more productive. It’s that more space means more time to think. And in most classrooms, this is not the case. Most students just end up spending their time in the same place.
This is a difficult point to make, but I think it’s a bit overstated. The average student spends about an hour a day on their desk. In an overcrowded teacher’s schedule, that time could be spent doing the least amount of work possible. In many school districts though, its even less easy to find an empty space. If you’re a teacher, you’re probably spending more time in class than you’re giving your students.
Its funny though, the school board is so busy making sure that every student gets every lecture and exam that they fail to notice the effects that they have on their students. So while the school board is busy meeting with their own administrators to figure out how to cut the number of students in half, the teachers are still spending every minute they can find with their students.
This is a common theme and one that you can definitely see at work in the new Deathloop trailer. A lot is made of how teachers are spending time with their students and how they are not only spending their time with the students but giving them the freedom to go out and enjoy themselves. You can see that the teachers are spending a lot of time with their students and that they are very intentional about their free time, making sure that their students are spending the time they are able to.
Again, there is an intentional aspect to this. Teachers are spending time with their students and taking advantage of their freedom. They are not just spending time with their students and being in their presence so that they can become friends. They are also spending time with their students and allowing them to go out and have fun. Teachers are not just spending time with their students and being in their presence and then disappearing without a word.
