"The world belongs however, to those can who look at the glass and say: "What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was bigger!"
- Terry Pratchett, The Truth'
Laughing in homeroom, crying in third period, pondering at lunchtime. It's nothing serious — just part of the act for a brooding artist. Whether it's acting, painting, writing, or interpretive dance, your channels of expression might have made you a little "different" in high school. But today it's these differences that separate your talent from all those wannabe creative types out there.
Lots of us felt sorry for the kid who sat alone in the corner — when we weren't picking on them, that is. Little did we know it was the best seat in the house for observing the absurdity of high school. The same insight that you had back then just might help make you famous someday (if it hasn't already). Just be careful when you're cleaning out the garage. With your talents, those old notebook doodles might end up being worth a fortune.
