1. Despite believing that I had magic powers of verbosity, I did significantly better on the math section of every standardized test I ever took.
2. When I started college, my declared major was journalism. Then I switched to pre-med. Then I flunked out! But they let me back in after some summer schooling. And I finished with degrees in Psychology and Public Health.
3. I have no compulsion to pursue an advanced degree, despite coming from two PhD parentals. The idea of volunteering for years of *homework* makes me shudder and phbbbt.
