@DragoonKain1687: I understand where you're coming from. Use the time to get something done that you wouldn't be able to otherwise. Start a project of some sort, keep active and busy with something to keep your mind occupied. It'll be healthy for you to have some independent time. I've been where you're at.

This nails it. Most of these people would never have the guts to pull the stuff they do on the internet in real life. Socially awkward people who don't know how to interact with others can act without consequences online.
I'm sorry to hear this. I'm glad that this teacher had a positive affect on you. Those relationships are special and not everyone can identify a teacher who made such a deep impact. It's memories like this that motivated me to get in to teaching. I hope that he responds positively to treatment.
Going well off-topic here, but legendary NHL tough guy Bob Probert passed away suddenly yesterday while boating with his family. Probert ruled the NHL from 1985-86 to 2001-02 as the toughest dude in the league. He was a rare combination of enforcer and goal scoring ability, putting up an impressive 29 goals in 1987-88.
Even if you’re not a hockey fan, you should enjoy these clips of some of Probie’s most famous scraps. Fighting is a fairly divisive issue in the hockey community, but there’s no arguing that Probert was as good at it as anybody ever.
