credited. you will learn that your new classmates aren't as amazing they seem now.


I guess thats true...

I could say: while a freshman I launched my own record label from my dorm and signed several successful artists, this represents my entrepreneurial spirit.

While the reality is: I tried launching one, filled out some legal forms, messaged some crappy bands on myspace, realized I had no idea what I was doing and immediately lost interest.

Just a hypothetical.... :oops:

Exactly. Don't get me wrong. I know some pretty impressive, accomplished people and I know some people that are in law because they failed at other stuff. Most people are normal.

You, sir, are indeed an impostor.
