If I had stayed at home no one would of ever noticed my unique talents, just my failures. People often judge us by our failure rather then our successes. Failures are more noticeable and can stick out like a sore thumb if it interferes with others lives. But our talents are often not seen because there is no situations to bring them out, or no one around us who is in-tune with or looking for those talents. If we are digging ditches there is little opportunity to display our art talents, but if we are artists we may not show our talents and strength at digging ditches. At college in the department you want to excel in there are always people looking for your talents in that subject and ignoring other failures and talents. Going to college is like asking others to help you shape up your passions in the direction you want to go.
I could not believe my ears when on of my professors suggested I go on to get my Ph.D. Me? You got to be kidding. Surely that was beyond my reach. No, the prof had to be out of line. So I applied to prove to myself that I could not even be accepted much less go through with it.
