Shannon: I don’t know why, but I can never get enough. I’m always looking for the next thing that I haven’t acquired yet. I suppose it’s not a good habit. I want to stop and just appreciate what I do have but I don’t know how. I’m always chasing something new, and it feels like I need to.

Mrs. Morens is know by the students of Golden Sierra Secondary as being the strictest art teacher in existence. Her students rarely receive A’s with flying colors. If anything, they barely pass the requirement. And that’s if they really try.
Finn was new to her class. He watched everyone working on their paintings. He then started up on his. After class, some people were surprised at how calm he was with Mrs. Morens looking over his shoulder.
“Dude, I don’t know how she’s a high school teacher,” one student states, “it’s like she’s an art critic.”
Finn hears this, and keeps it in mind.
The next morning, he knocks on Mrs. Morens room. “May I work on my project?” He asks.
Finn offers a quick thanks, then gets out his materials. He works until the bell, then scrambles to homeroom without putting everything away. Mrs. Morens realizes this and sighs to herself. She walks over, considering scolding Finn later and fail him right here for being so careless.
But then she sees his work in progress.
A student in her class might get straight A’s after all.
