A few months ago, my mother found a copy of my senior year report cards from high school. At the time, I was shocked to see that I did not get As in Soviet History and Culture. today I found the same cards sitting on my desk. I looked at them again. It turns out, the only As I got that year, and I got them both semesters, were in Drama and Journalism. I believe that explains a lot. At the time, naturally, I would have dismissed any potential I might have had in either field, as they were equally unhelpful skills for making money. I suppose you cannot outrun your fate.
