Well, yesterday was the first day of school around these parts. As usual, the day was replete with seating charts, syllabi, and sorrow.
Teachers tend to feel much the same as students on this day, and I was no exception. Throughout the early morning hours I found myself contemplating my career choice with no small level of anxiety. However, as the wide-eyed, frightened 12 year-olds began streaming into my homeroom, I felt something begin to build inside me. Slowly and unstoppably, a overwhelming strength began to surge through my veins, and I once again felt at one with my role in the universe.
My insatiable power over these 7th graders built as I began to shout frenzied and arbitrary commands at them, thus disorienting their command structure and rendering their defenses useless. Like Emperor Palpatine in Revenge of the Sith, I raised my arms in glorious victory and howled in an unearthly voice, “UNLIMITED POWAAAAAHHHH!!!”
Also, I proctored a study hall.
