the guy in the second row

I've always wondered what was up with the
guy in the second row, the person in any class that seems to hold a personal conversation with the professor. God, those people were both impressive and annoying.

God has a sense of humor. To my horror, I've found that I've become one of those people.

Sometimes I wonder if it would have been better to go with the meek and shy persona in class. Oh well. Jay Parini wrote in The Art of Teaching that a successful teacher is a stage performer, that they have no choice but to adopt a persona to become a successful teacher. I suppose that goes for students as well.
