1. If I do this for the rest of my life, how long would I live?
  2. Am I going to be one of those statistics of teachers who quit in the first 5 years?
  3. Am I becoming one of those old people with antiquated ideas who thinks all teenagers are ruining the world but it's really just my distance from reality and they'll all be fine?
  4. Why are so many of my students below a 6th grade reading level?
  5. Why do I have to now be the adult who contemplates all these things?
  6. Wow, my life is linear and I will never be young again and I am going to die some day.
