It's amazing...

how any of us who were brought up in the last century ever succeeded at anything.  

We had to suffer through terrible things like - 

  • Following school rules or facing your parents when you got home
  • Following directions in class in order to complete your work
  • Learning to read by actually reading - if the material was too hard, you worked to rise to the occasion, often times with help from parents, instead of having the bar lowered for you

  • Learning math facts by rote and having to work out problems without a calculator 

  • Bringing your own materials to class
  • Being respectful and responsible

Oh yeah, that's right...
This is exactly why we were able to succeed!
