Education is not a spectator sport.

Dearest Professor Waters,

Thank you once again for imparting your wisdom and wit to our class with so much patience. It has truly been an honor, and I have never been more proud to be able to proclaim to the rest of the world that I was once taught by you, a sage who loves fishing, bats, and his daily headstands.

I only just read your mail on waseda net-portal about my score for my legal studies paper, and even though it is already 330hr in the morning, I am jumping with joy in my tiny room!

I told my mum yesterday that you said that I should go to law school, and that is by far, the biggest compliment I have ever received in my 35 years of existence. There is no higher accolade.

I will definitely visit Yale Law School someday. To savor the yummy ice cream that you were raving about today, to immerse myself in the beauty of the law, and last but not least, in homage to you, I will steal a plate from the school cafeteria.

Yours sincerely,
Sharon Au

PS. I am now motivated to start reading up on bats, and how they are a gem to our environment.

I will not let you down.
