My freshman year of highschool; and I was in my first ever AP course. I was taking AP Human Geography taught by Mr. Johnson. I first enjoyed the class and then my effort diminished as the year went on; all he wanted me to do was my homework. Don’t get mistaken me, he was a great teacher, but his methods were foreign to me. Also, I was rarely allowed to go to the bathroom. Although he was a rough teacher, I thought of it more as a fun competition to prove who is better.

In a book we read called Our Twisted Hero by Yi Munyol. The narrator talks about how Om is harsh to the boys, but he gets the best results in the school. This fits into the definition because Om has a brutal process, but in the end he produces excellent results. In this quote Om says, “It won’t do, there are stains there still. Clean them again” (Munyol 65). Sokdae also says, “That’s fly shit there, isn’t it? Clean them again and clean the dust in this corner” (Munyol 66). Here we see that Om is pushing a boy, named Han, until he receives the results that won’t hurt his
