No Ben Franklin for me

"Most likely to succeed." At what? I often wonder 14 years later. Pages of girl-boy pairs voted most or best. Our "most" nomination was uninspired: valedictorian, me; salutatorian, him. Post-vote, I overheard a classmate comment, "I don't think getting good grades means you'll be successful."

My friends now assure me, "Success is relative." Of course, to each individual. I know what I mean...

That leaves three years to transform into the confident, fulfilled, successful person I wish to be by 35. But as the weeks wear on with little change, I wonder if she'll ever reside here. I guess she's waiting for me to move out first.
