You should be having more fun in high school, exploring things because you want to explore them and learning because you love learning-not worrying about competition.
I loved school. I studied like crazy. I was a Class A nerd.
I really enjoyed hanging out with some of the teachers. This one chemistry teacher, she liked hanging out. I liked making explosives. We would stay after school and blow things up.
My grandfather, on my father's side, helped to draft one of the first constitutions of China. He was a fairly well-known scholar.
It terrified me to have an idea that was solely mine to be no longer a part of my mind, but totally public.
The only thing that mattered was what you were to do in life, and it wasn't about money. It was about teaching, or learning.
