age is just a number. its overestimated. age can be a sickness, but also,
the older you are, the easier you will have to control us young people with your wisdom.
I am in 110% agreement that age is merely a number. I follow the teachings of the wise savant Satchel Paige. "How old would you be if you didnt know how old you are?"
Its funny that you say "control with my wisdom". I used to teach 4th and 5th grade before I moved to special education. Basically age 10 to 13. People asked me how I kept my sanity teaching that age group. I always told them that I was one of them at heart, while my classroom was a benevolent dictatorship that was a family for them all. Jeff Bezos is a poor man indeed the day one of my former students called me to tell me that they were the first of their family to graduate college and they had always remembered that I told them often, "... the courage to be great lies in each of us", from Dr. Martin Luther Kings "I have a dream" speech.
Sorry to go off on the tangent, but any chance I have to talk about my "kids" gets me going.
no dont worry, I was sort of joking in a bit "inappropriate" way about age. im just a bit over 20, so you are much older than me. hahaha.
but yeah, it seems like the things I said sort of applied well to you, since youve been a teacher.
I actually think the best teachers were the ones that were like you describe yourself, harsh, but in a fair way.
you describe it as a 'benevolent dictatorship' hehe, thats quite dark, but I can sense that you do it because you care about their results as students.
my father is actually a teacher, and he can be very harsh, but its because he cares about his students,
and he never says anything about it, but he is a really skillful and damn respected teacher
I hope you will enjoy it here on the forum, Im a slaanesh player, gonna get my first airbrush this tuesday after 10+ years in the game
