Getting it down on `paper`

Lessons from High School – Yes, It’s Still Relevant

In high school, when I wasn’t pleased with a class schedule or teacher, I would write some melodrama story about how I was being prevented from reaching my full potential if I didn’t switch my schedule around to be in so-and-so’s classroom.  I would do my homework to arrange the schedule such that nobody could say no, since the change was both academically challenging and technically valid.

Why the fuck don’t I do the same thing in my career? If I’m being held back from reaching my full potential, or — screw it — if I’m not happy in my “course selection,” then why don’t I “report to the dean” with a viable alternative?

I’m hiding.

PS: What inspired this? Oh… Teachers of Reddit, who was your favorite student?
