I didn't think about it, but now that you mention it I think being a lazy student would be one of my regrets, too. I did well and graduated with honors, but wonder what might have been if I had actually put effort into it.

I think a lot of kids feel like we float between groups rather than "fitting in" completely in one group or another.

I still feel that way, too, like I'm the bridge between the "youngsters" at work and the rest of the oldies.

Everything about you seems to be pretty abnormal.. hehe Not!
I love that you were in drama club. Somehow it prepares you for life in ways that can't even be fully pinned down. I think it's having to learn to act a part maybe? "All the world is a stage".... etc

George would love you! What's the matter with him. He should have been over by now! Dolt. oops did I say that?
