It scares me sometimes, just how much importance is placed on academics. If you get good marks, it's assumed that you'll do well in the workplace. Presumably the converse is also true. Given the number of people I know with learning disabilities, I have serious issues with this. (I have issues with it for other reasons, but I digress).

I, personally, am disturbed by the number of people who think that because I am in ENGINEERINGzomg, I must be SMART.

I beg to differ. In reality, I'm too dumb to know when to quit. Which oddly usually works to my advantage.

And now I'm going to go shower and remove the layer of dust from my skin.

Good point! I forgot about that one.
