I had the oddest sensation tonight. Due to freezing temps, I took the subway home in lieu of walking. While ascending the stairs at my stop, I was enjoying a great mix on my iPod courtesy of Genius (pretty nifty tool). Then "More Than This" by Roxy Music began playing, and next thing I knew: I felt like I was back in London emerging from a tube station (Piccadilly Circus? Leicester Square??). The feeling was so strong, and I did a double-take to verify my actual whereabouts.
I know it's common to hear a song that takes you back, but in this case, I felt like I was actually reliving an experience from nearly 20 years ago.
In other news, a student bit me today. Intentionally. He had been writing on the walls, and I gave him three warnings to stop. After the third one, it was time to remove him from the classroom, though he had no intention of leaving willingly. As I did my best to maneuver him out of the room gently but firmly, he bit my hand which, at the time, was holding his arm. At least he didn't break the skin.
