Sometimes, when I’ve been having a bad work week, I imagine an alternate universe where I have a totally different job. A job that is basically the exact opposite of the job I have now.
In an alternate universe, I am highly educated, make a ton of money, and don’t have to care about hurting people’s feelings. In an alternate universe, I get a bonus for doing my job well, I’m respected, and I wear really expensive suits. In an alternate universe, I have a huge office and a huger loft on the Upper West Side. In an alternate universe, no one is complaining about homework, no one is demanding an explanation for a failing grade, and no one is forcing some new and totally senseless differentiated learning strategy on me.
In an alternate universe, I’m a corporate lawyer.
What do you do in your alternate universe?
