    Indeed I don’t think I have ever really disagreed with a teacher. That can’t be true. But I definitely wasn’t vocal with teachers. Were you?

    I had classmates in high school and college who would argue with teachers, full on empassioned arguments. That wasn’t me.

    Am I sheep? Maybe. I’m not a genius like Monet. Maybe some sort of arguing with teachers and authority is a pre-requisite for geniosity. The billionaires and artists and makers and doers of the world are non-conformist. They break the rules and disagree and maybe that leads to success.

    I hope that isn’t the case. It’s bad news for us non-non-conformists. Maybe we just need to push the limits and bust out of the mold a little bit more.

    We can start by improving our French in a new way.

    Mais Monet ne reste pas longtemps dans cet atelier car il n’est pas d’accord avec son professeur. En effet, pour son professeur, la peinture doit être une représentation idéale de la réalité et surtout pas une représentation exacte de la réalité.

    Monet, lui, préfère peindre les choses comme il les voit.

    But Monet does not stay long in this workshop because he does not agree with his teacher. Indeed, for his teacher, painting must be an ideal representation of reality and above all not an exact representation of reality.

    Monet prefers to paint things as he sees them.
