To coin a phrase, "AWESOME!" I'm not a bouncing baby 64-year-old girl, who is just now beginning to know my own passions and what I'd like to do for the rest of my life. Having passed every test imaginable in high school, I was accepted at UCSB and from there it was all catastrophic! Education itself, all the opportunities for learning the mass of information available at college, was by itself a passion. But I became caught up in a fishnet of not passing tests up to my expected caliber, labeled myself a failure, and in the beginning of my sophomore year dropped out of school to flounder, dabble in whatever could bring in some money and was of some interest, to a point where I'm now retired and looking for my future!
GREAT speech. Too short - but, right on, Bubba! Right On!
