In a bad place today, so I'll just say:

Thank you for sharing the insight. I'd love to continue some other time, if you're okay with it.

I gave this more thought.

"Would" would be the most appropriate. You were right on using "will" for direct continuity of events, but subjunctive mood is required for those events that are vague on happening.

I saw the dot-CA domain. I assumed. My bad.

I appreciate your concern, and I appreciate you speaking up about this.

I thought the phrase might sound as you say it does, but I've decided to leave it as is, with the following reasoning:

"Should" here does not indicate agreement, as you've well picked up from the rest of the message. "Should" here indicates that what's happening is within the order of things, given the circumstances. It's meant to imply that, should circumstances change, the object — the prominence of the pick-up culture — shall change accordingly with them. "Will" here would give a false sense of permanence to the derogative and inhumane culture, which I recognize to be an inaccurate description.

I know I'm no master of the English language, but I think studying its grammar to the letter has given me an insight into how it works enough to justify playing with the language on the same level as its native speakers as long as I can afford it. I appreciate an outside perspective, of course, and if you think I made a mistake, I would appreciate it if you — or anyone with an explanation — would correct me in the future.

What is it that you get nervous about before classes? When I think of failing my students, the reason is always being unable to convey the knowledge that I have; that I'd get flustered and wouldn't know how to say it so they'd understand. I know I'm good at using my knowledge. I feel like I can't be sure unless I give it shot whether I'm good at sharing it.

And, if you don't mind, I'll reply to your second comment here, as well. I'd like to get into teaching in a uni or a similar higher-education facility because I find it easier to work with more mature people, mentally. I'm not sure if my degree would allow for it, so I aim at high-school level.

Any advice on dealing with teenagers? The caveats, the ways to interest them?.. I know I'm getting that from the future courses, but I'd also like some experience from the field itself.

    but apparently this shit still hasn't died out yet.

Nor should it. It's built by men with no self-confidence for men with no self-confidence. As long as the Internet exists and some young horny men continue to want to get laid without giving the derogatively-called "target" any sort of respect a human being, regardless of gender, deserves, this shit is going to continue to live on.

It's easy to abandon the basic notions of humanity and respect when you feel so empty inside, no woman would want to stay around you unless you negg her into doing so.

I'm guessing "opposite" here does not mean "being opposed to".

Thanks!

What was it like to first enter the classroom? What was your first impression of your students? Did it change as you got to know them? What was it like to finish the first day of teaching?

I hear you. Performance is important, and so is team spirit.

Still. Soul is important. Maybe the higher-ups want a husk with skills in firearms, but I imagine that you want to be alive, not just living.

You a teacher, lm? Any advice for an aspirer?

You're in, uh... pardon my ignorance... military school? I would think the military would encourage camaraderie.

    Pubski is dope because it encourages you to put your thoughts into words, which helps your thoughts be better!

You learn about yourself because you have to transmit what's on your mind — an intangible — into tangible. It's the reason planning works: you get to see exactly what you're up against, which dispels fear of uncertainty.

Journaling would have the same effect. It also lets you talk to yourself about something you can only keep private.
