Several teachers have caused me to bat my eyes and work extra hard in their classes over the years. There was a certain biology teacher that really made me giddy when I was younger. Then there was my English teacher that taught me to love journaling and writing in general and I could have really crushed on him. I would never had acted on these crushes.
Today I am a little older and wiser but I still appreciate an intelligent man and my oh my there is this certain Australian that is a teacher that just makes me want to jump through hoops to please him. Not literally but I bat my eyes every opportunity that I get.
Then there is my other guy friend that was/is working toward another graduate degree. When he finishes he will return to be a college history professor. This is right up my alley as I have this college professor fantasy that he would fit the part perfectly.
