    First of all, congrats.

    Second, being a high school drop out says nothing about your intelligence - only your will (we don't know your reasons for not finishing it, so it may not be that simple). We all knew you're a smart man, and a talented writer - I'm just glad you got the recognition you needed to start believing it! <3 We're all very proud of you J, so keep on working hard!







    btw. when will I finally read what happened to Atlean in that zombie-werewolf apocalyptic story of yours?

    True. It was a complicated ordeal.

    First draft is done. I keep putting off the rewrite.

    I reckon you have better things to do, but I hope it will see the light of the day soon

    Another drop out huh? Motivating is the hardest part of teaching, and they were useless at it in my school, for me anyway. I guess that like me you have now found your personal motivation, it is amazing what it can enable you to do. Congratulations.

    I echo all of that. In a way I was a high achieving educational drop-out, despite very good grades in my specialist subjects at school, as I had no ambition to go to university, even though a place at Cambridge would have been pretty much a sure thing for me if I'd applied. In those days one could attend university on a grant, so there was no financial argument against doing it either, but I had no ambitions and at the back of my mind I suspected that I could learn anything that I really felt the need to when it came to it. I've never been wrong about that and my most prominent skills have been self-taught. What one can achieve is as much about motivation as it is about ability. Having support from the right people contributes to that as well.

    Long story short, they screwed me out of credits and said I would need to repeat my senior year. I told them I had proof that they were wrong but nobody cared. So I told them to shove it and went and got my GED instead.

    I think motivation is the key. That ordeal hurt my confidence and made me feel like there was no justice in the world. The lesson learned was that life hands you lemons but it's how you take hits and keep getting back on your feet that counts. My motivation these days is to do well for myself despite what others throw at me.
