I don't remember if I worried about school. Yes, I think I did. I missed the first day of seventh grade with a migraine. I couldn't move my head. I remember being up half the night before eighth grade. Before and after those years I have no idea. I remember the terror of going to my first college class. It was "The City." It was boring even that first day.
I came to love college -- both times -- and if I could do it all again I would in a heartbeat. I don't think education is ever a waste of time.
Except when you're a fifth grade boy.
