Take Notes, Son.
I hate being wrong.
Yes, I know. You don't either. No one wants to be wrong, which is weird that the idea has evolved into an aphorism, even as aphorisms go. It's so obvious that it doesn't even deserve to be a cliche.
But really tho, it does suck. Being wrong.
All through high school and college, I did the least that I needed to do, failing to actualize potential in lots of areas. Not because I didn't want to be a success. It was because I didn't want to be a failure.
