My experience being zip-tie would best be described as… limiting but liberating.

When I woke up today, I had no idea I would be zip-tied to a desk in my fourth period class but sometimes… life just throws you a curveball. You’re probably wondering how this whole situation transpired. Well, it all started when I waltzed into my newspaper class. I casually chose an empty desk and pulled out my laptop to write my very punctual web story. Suddenly, I felt a strange sensation on my wrist. I looked over only to find Max Jimenez zip-tying my wrist to the side of the desk. Just like that, I was completely immobilized. That pretty much catches you up to my current situation. As you can see by the picture, I am currently writing this web story while zip-tied. Honestly, it’s not as bad as you would think, plus, It is effectively forcing me to write this web story.

 

Here are some pros and cons of being zip-tied to a desk:

Pro: It’s kind of a rush.

Con: You can’t move.

Pro: It serves as an accurate metaphor for how the modern school system has confined student’s creative desires to the structured and somewhat outdated curriculum.

Con: You cannot go to the bathroom.

Pro: You get a lot of attention which I desperately crave.

Con: My hand is slowly losing feeling.

Pro: I receive the punishment I deserve for my sub-par editing.

Con: I look like an idiot.

Pro: I have an excuse to go to the bathroom while sitting in a desk.

 

As you can see, the positives and negatives are relatively balanced. I was liberated by a yellow pair of scissors after I felt that anymore confinement would cause emotional scarring. I had never experienced such an intense appreciation for such an ordinary tool.  Overall, being zip-tied is both an exciting and frightening experience that I am glad I tried.
