April tc challenge
Day 6: Have you ever noticed any small habits that they have? If so, what comes to mind first?
Yes, i do... I notice that when she is thinking then she is playing with her keys in her hands. It looks cute and once i was really happy when i saw it, because she was playing with keychain from me which she has there. 😍🥺
this man is literally every thought i think and every breath i breathe
secrets i’ll never tell my teacher crush:
• i can’t sleep unless i’m imagining some sort of scenario with you
• i only make an effort in my appearance for school because i know i’ll see you there
• i stare at that one photo of you more times than i probably should
• simply just seeing you around school comforts me and makes me feel safe
• i’ve never wanted to hug anyone more than i want to hug you
• i’ve fantasised multiple times about how it would feel to have you wipe my tears away and comfort me
• i truly don’t know how i’m going to live in a world without you
(inspired by @sweet-but-stoned-tcc 🥰)
I wore this really fancy dress and he was staring me up and down SO hard and asking me all these questions about it.
he also gave me a book sooo that’s cool, it gives me an excuse to talk to him later this week 😉
June TC Challenge
1. Do you and your TC have any hobbies or interests in common? If so, do you talk about them together often?
Not really, I guess we have a shared interest in poetry? And we sometimes talk about it when he's helping with my writing during his afterschool activity.
2. Does your TC ever talk about their childhood/teenage years? If yes, what were they like and what sort of childhood did they have?
Yeahh T likes to include his own experiences while teaching and it's super cute. He wasn't that good of a student (which was surprising), with strict but loving parents and a lot of siblings.
3. If you could choose one from the following from your TC, what would you choose? An hour alone with them to chat about what you want, a hug, a present, a handwritten note or then complimenting you in front of the class?
An hour to chat, ending in a hug 🥺
4. Do you think you’ll buy them a leaving gift? If so, what are you thinking of getting them?
Definitely, but I still have no idea what to get and I'm running out of time!!! Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
5. When and where did you first meet them?
It must have been somewhere in school when he first came a few years ago, but I really can't remember.
6. What was your first impression of them?
Can't remember :/
7. Do they give out much homework in their classes? What type of homework do they commonly give out?
He doesn't give a lot, usually it would be like reading a few pages and making notes, or written tasks like mini-essays or essay plans. Anything that involves writing (or speaking 💀) I would take literal decades to complete because I want to impress him so badly.
8. Do they talk a lot in their classes or do they do more activities?
Depending on what's being taught, T usually lectures during the lessons. We rarely have activities that take longer than half the lesson, which is great for me because I get to hear him teach more.
9. What’s their funniest moment this far?
Oh this is very hard, I think most of us would say it's when he performed last week, that was both amazing and hilarious at the same time, but he has so many more extremely funny moments.
10. What’s their cutest moment so far?
I'm not sure what counts as cute? It's adorable when he can't get technology to work or when he's bad at maths, and when he makes a mistake and quietly reprimands himself. His genuine laughs are super cute as well.
11. Have you gone on a field trip with them yet? If so, to where?
That was how our story started - I won't say where to but he took us on a trip to another country for an event, it was so long ago but I still treasure the memories.
12. Have you got any selfies with them? If yes, where were they taken?
Unfortunately not, and I will probably never get one.
13. Do you usually prefer older people or is your TC an exception?
I definitely don't prefer old older people (no offence to anyone here at all), but T is closer to the higher end of the age range of the TCs I've had. And yes, I've preferred people who are 10-20 years older than me for quite long now, T is not an exception.
14. Are you and your TC close? Do you talk to them often?
I mean I would say we are quite close, at least by the standards of how he usually interacts with students (definitely not as close as many people here are with their TCs teach me your ways). He recognises that I am a good student and I have involved myself with him so much - being in his afterschool activity, writing the essay he's mentoring me on, etc. I am always looking for reasons to talk to him.
15. Do they have any pets?
Yes, they have a dog, I've seen her in real life twice and she's adorable.
16. Is there anything about them you wish you could change?
I do wish he was a bit closer to students (i.e. me), we get to spend so much more time with some of our other teachers and talk to them, then maybe I could have had a bit more with T before he left.
17. Is there a particular song that reminds you of them?
Crazy in Love and Hypochondriac.
18. Do you have dreams about them? If so, what is the best dream you’ve had about them so far?
I dream about T all the time, the most intimate was of him and I sitting side by side on a table, his arm around my waist and me leaning into him. I have also dreamt of holding his hand and spending time with him at school events.
19. What sort of girlfriend/boyfriend/partner do you think they’ll be?
I often imagine his dynamic with S and he just seems like an ideal partner - the few details they have each separately disclosed support it. He must be so loving and gentle and romantic (but not in a grand way, in the smaller details).
20. What’s their sense of humour like? Can they make you laugh?
It's hard to describe but I really love his humour, it's not deliberate but funny on a personal level if that makes sense. T isn't like the typical 'funny teachers' we have and his jokes are more subtle, yet it always makes us laugh in lessons.
21. Are they usually your ‘type?’ If not, what attracted you to them?
It has been too long that I can't tell if he fits my type or if I fit my type to him, but academic intelligence, good looks, humour, care for others, and generally upright morals do generally appeal to me.
22. Are they more of an introvert or an extrovert?
For the most part, I would say extrovert. Especially this year, with his homeroom class and us being based closer to his classroom, I see him alone a lot less. He complained of online learning and told us how much he missed seeing his friends and colleagues and interacting with students. Whereas he also eats lunch behind the closed doors of his classroom every day, alone, and I never really know why.
23. What is their classroom like? Do they put a lot of pictures up?
T's classroom has - or, rather, had - a few posters on the walls with quotes, but mostly it's revision work his students have done for the books they were studying. Our class decorated almost an entire wall after our first year with him.
24. Has anyone in your life caught on to your crush for them?
I have only told a few of my closest friends and some of them were not that surprised to find out. One or two other people I knew had also occasionally hinted at the possibility, which scared me to death.
25. What caused you to realise that you have a crush on them?
He took us on a school trip abroad and was with us during one of the events, I suddenly realised that I was constantly looking his way and admiring his beautiful face, which was when I knew.
26. How long have you had a crush on them now?
That would have been nearly three years ago. Big sigh.
27. What is their body type?
T is very fit but not overtly muscular, his shoulders are wide and he has a sturdy back, forming an inverted triangle down to his slender waist.
28. Do they have any school events they especially enjoy? How about ones they don’t like?
Unsurprisingly, he was usually pretty invested in the sport events (mainly for S I assume), but whenever there were compulsory whole-school House events he would also contribute. I guess teachers are just not given as much liberty to show their dislike for any events.
29. How long have they been teaching for?
Around ten years, give or take. T cited this number with me when he told me that he had only ever taught one other student as good as I was in English in his ten years of teaching.
30. Are they younger (20s-30s) or older (40+)?
Younger, which I am grateful for.
how I started crushing on my TC
It was orientation day at school. I don’t remember much from orientation but I do remember us being directed towards which classrooms to go to. There we met with our teachers for a bit.
Eventually I met my english teacher (my now teacher crush) I remember it being very chill, and me being at the desk right in front of him. We ended up having a small interaction. He was asking people for what class they had next and soon he got to me.
I didn’t know what class I had, and worried about taking too long to respond. I tried quickly finding it on my crumpled schedule sheet. He made a joke saying “don’t worry it’s not a test!” and that calmed me down, even made me giggle. As the first week continued, he quickly earned the favorite teacher ranking.
“His class is super fun! He is an amazing teacher, with a great personality!” was my reasoning for him becoming my favorite teacher so quickly.
As you can see this is where the oblivious attraction starts...
Then I started to feel super happy in class, but nervous, and jealous at times.
Nervousness was reasonable, I commonly get nervous around men and those I am not super familiar with, but I felt excitement along with it.
I was also confused to why my jealousy surrounded him not paying attention to me. And why I wanted him to pay attention to me so much? I would always try and do the homework super well, and bring as much as I could into class discussion. I loved the attention and validation he gave when I spoke.
And the happiness I got, I thought I felt that way because it was my favorite class, but there was more to it... but what was it?
Then his eyes.... oh his eyes. It was the first physical traits that grabbed my attention. I was sitting in class watching him teach and they just stood out so much... Other physical traits would soon be noticed...
Then one day after we had a great class, I was walking through the hallway and I saw him, so I said hi. He noticed me and said "Hi (insert my name here lol)!" and he smiled. He was happy by seeing me?? My heart couldn’t take it, I exploded into excitement. Then in my next class, math class, I realized.
I have a crush on him....
I have a crush on my teacher....
march tc challenge ; 13-16
day 13: have you ever made each other angry or upset? if so, how did you reconcile?
you can read about it if you scroll down my blog, but there was this one incident last year where f said something really unnecessary/inappropriate in class and i confronted him about it afterwards because it made me upset. thankfully, he apologized to both myself and my classmates and we haven't brought it up since. i was genuinely scared that it would ruin our relationship, but i think it strengthened our trust and i can tell that he's trying harder to be more considerate. ✨character development✨
as for the other way around, there have been a couple of times where i've teased him a little too hard or lost my cool around him, but he never actually got annoyed (i did apologize, though). i can't imagine us having some huge argument or anything.
day 14: do you ever find yourself imitating them, either consciously or unconsciously?
i'm constantly tempted to buy copies of his clothes or clothes that are similar to his, which is completely conscious. on top of that, i do end up imitating some of his expressions and mannerisms, which he may or may not have noticed at this point. there are some quirks he has that i've adopted just to feel closer to him.
day 15: what do you think their love language is? what's yours?
funnily enough, i don't think i've ever really thought about my love language (pov: you're single). after doing a bit of research, i think it's probably words of affirmation, as i feel the happiest when people validate/support me haha. as for f, i literally have no idea. i could possibly see it being acts of service? i guess i should start helping him out a bit more 😭 /j
day 16: have they taught you anything that isn't school-related? valuable life lessons, insights on how you feel about yourself, etc?
some of our conversations end up becoming kind of a therapy session lmaoo so yeah, definitely. we've talked about quite a few deeper subjects before and they've led me to make analogies that i can apply to, well, what's going on in my own perception. less seriously, being around him has made me realize that i seriously have daddy issues like i can't even deny it at this point 💀
