Passion and Tyranny

Here’s something I’ve been meaning to get done during the weekend, but didn’t find the time for until now. A little disclaimer is in order, though, to not give the wrong impression. I generally have the utmost respect for teachers. I believe it is among the most underappreciated and often thankless professions there are (is? Not sure what the correct word here is). Of course, there are exceptions to everything.

Some teachers use their position and influence to share their knowledge and expertise in a manner which is passionate and inspirational. During each of my stages of education I have had quite a few of these of which I have fond memories. Others choose to be arrogant tyrants, expecting everyone to be their obedient little subjects. If you’re among the latter, the respect I might have had for you has dropped tremendously. And if you’re among the latter and negatively affect people I care about because of it, you have just made an enemy out of me.

Now, no need to worry. I’m far too law-abiding to go and rashly do anything criminal, getting myself and possibly others into a whole heap of trouble. Thankfully, we writers have our own weapons, our own ways of venting our anger and frustration. This here is only a simple little example. It’s not going to bring about any big changes, if any changes at all and the ‘target’ is probably never even going to see it. Still, I don’t think it’s that bad an idea to channel my anger in a way that keeps my creativity going. At the very least it’ll make me feel better than when I leave things hanging around in my head. Plus, I doubt this little limerick will be the last I’ve seen of her here. Yeah… I’m. Not. Done…

One teacher most vile and malicious
Whose treatment of students was vicious
She seemed without soul
As their freedom she stole
It truly would make one seditious

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
