If you could confront the worst teacher you've ever had, what would you tell him or her?
"I wish you believed in me more, so I would've stayed motivated. Instead, I'm failing chemistry now and I have to take an extra year of school.
It was my dream to travel for a year after I've graduated, in 2012. Now it will probably take a year longer before I can make my dream come true. A lot can happen in a year. In 2013, I might not be able anymore to travel to remote places like I've always wanted. My body is becoming weaker and weaker because of my illness. The risks would be too great. With every year passing, things I do will get riskier, more painful, and eventually impossible.
You know this, but you never listened to me when I told you about it. To you, I'm a shallow, ignorant girl that needs discipline, but I don't think you ever tried to get to know your students.
I hope you'll see your future students as humans with emotions instead of spoiled brats you have to scold all the time, because your harsh words didn't teach me to listen to you, like you wanted. It teached me not to trust or respect adults if they haven't proven themselves first."

If your parents were transformed into their true animal spirits, what animals would they be?
My mom is a very chaotic person. She would be like a small critter, perhaps a squirrel. Always running around, hiding secret stashes of nuts because hey, the world is an awfully inpredictable place and you HAVE to be prepared for everything, otherwise you'll never make it..
My dad is more like an owl. He's a bit eccentric, perhaps, but most of the time wise and he thinks before he says something. This can make him quiet sometimes, but he's smart and efficient.
