Sometimes First Thing is Best!

I just want to catch up on a couple of questionnaires before hopping in the shower!

What Your Back to School Personality Says About You
You are laid back and fairly dispassionate. Traditional concepts of success are not important to you. You are most likely to succeed if you simply do what you love. Doing things you find boring dooms you to failure. Your greatest skill is making something out of nothing. You don't need much to feel inspired. Your biggest stumbling block in life is worrying about what other people think of you. Their opinions matter even less than you think. You're not quite sure what you're thankful for in life, it doesn't seem like there's a lot to be thankful for these days.

My Thoughts
This was completely off. I am laid back to some degree, and I always succeed doing something I love. After that, it is all wrong. I am thankful for many, many things now and am in one of the happiest times of my life. Things are so good right now, and have been for some time, I want to pinch myself and make sure I'm not dreaming.

My point was I loathed school. People who feel nostalgic about high school are a cipher to me. I hated it. Going back meant time for a ten-month round of torture at the hands of the other students, some of the teachers and the "faculty" such as the guidance councelors (not unlike an unmarried marriage councelor...), who were all of the opinion that I was destined to work in a Walmart-type establishment for the rest of my working career. (Take that, losers! Had you bothered to talk to me for a moment instead of the teachers or others with no clue how to discern their lack of interest in teaching from what appeared to be scholastic apathy on mine, you might have learned something - like how to actually councel.)

Twenty-plus years later, I'm still a little bitter about school. Not the lesson I wanted to learn.
