I’ve been subbing for a few months now. The last few months of subbing have shown me some surprising repetition among the students. No, these students don’t all come from the same cut cloth, or clique, or whatever generalization you’d like to make. These kids are the full spectrum of personality and background. Within that kaleidoscopic spectrum, I found some common themes that may shock you.
What if I told you that there was a girl who, through the tumultuous love affair of despair and hope, transformed into an enigmatic treasure trove of a woman? Who inspired ceaselessly, who stunned gracefully, and whose gravitational pull was so strong, people would find themselves lost in the light she radiated. That light would pull them in by the hand as if to guide a friend to a new adventure that would forever be imprinted in their memory.
