I don’t know if it’s strange, but when I began to whole-heartedly embrace my career, all I wanted to happen in life is to become a wise old man someday.

Wanna cry? Wanna laugh? Watch this beautiful series.
Wanna find your life’s meaning through something? Binge-watch this one of the greatest things that ever happened in TV history. And you wouldn’t mind if this becomes a result of staying at home for the whole weekend like what we just experienced.

It’s hard to not know a serious problem that one of the students is having when every person counts on you and looks up to you since you are the helper and empowerer of the institution, but it’s as difficult as knowing everything and trying your best to act on it professionally and humanely, even if your job and license are both on the line.
Jay Asher, the writer of 13 Reasons Why, said it best. “You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own.

When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything affects everything.”
