Good blog post fitting-in (or not) in high school.
Honestly, I gotta say that, having gone to brand-name universities and working with people who many consider the best in their disciplines, I’ve found that the most successful, the most brilliant, the people who are admired by everyone–nearly all of them were thought ‘weird’ growing up. They spent less energy trying to fit in, and more time being themselves and doing what they thought was best.
Anyway, read the story. It’s good.
