Once I got to college, I began to love school. The feeling of working hard and then┬áthe instant gratification from all that hard work was awesome! One professor told me I’d be a professional student forever.

Of course in the real world, you can work as hard as you want and still feel like you haven’t quite made it. And it’s not just your career, but that gnawing, frustrating feeling could also apply to friendships and romantic relationships too.

I realized that the formulas that seem to work in school, working hard = A’s, just didn’t have a place in real life. Sometimes you could drive yourself crazy trying to force pieces of a puzzle that just didn’t go together.
