This is a letter I wrote to my high school friend who recently left her teaching position. I’m writing this letter to say thank you for the experience you gave me and for your time and dedication to my writing.
Well, the experience hasn’t been entirely positive. My friend did get the job, but in a position where she was constantly, and in all ways, being judged. She kept telling me that what I was doing was the “right” thing to do, it was normal, and I had no reason to worry because I was doing it for “the right” reason. I couldn’t imagine a better place to teach.
Well, that’s the thing. I don’t really believe in luck. We’re creatures of habit. We’re not supposed to change in order to be successful. We’re not supposed to become our best, most successful selves through some random miracle. It’s not supposed to be like that at all. It’s just how our brains work. It’s what’s going on in the moment, it’s not how our brains work, it’s what’s going on in the brain.
When I was in college I got a master’s degree in psychology, but I got only a minor in physics. Well, I didn’t get a PhD because I was not a physics major. I studied it a lot, so I thought maybe I would be able to do some more research and learn about physics.
In college I had a friend who had a very similar story. He was in his final year and was planning to go to medical school. His parents were very wealthy, but his dad was very sick and was constantly in and out of the hospital. He went to college and completed his degree, but his parents still wanted him to enter the medical field.
The science is definitely something that I’m not likely to be able to get into, but I do think that the real issue is that I think it’s a really, really big deal to get you into PhDs.
We all know that the idea of a doctor entering the medical field is one that is highly controversial, but it’s not as much of a big deal for the vast majority of people as it is for the few who are able to get into the doctorate programs.
I’m not sure we can ever really get everyone into the doctorate degree in the same way we can get a doctor with a master’s degree into the medical field, because our minds still need to be trained in different subjects. But getting someone into the doctorate is definitely something that will have a real impact on his life for a really long time.
This is probably the most controversial thing I hear about. I’ve seen some of the hardest to get into schools. The ones that require a certain number of GPA’s. And that there are a lot of people that just haven’t ever had as much practice to build that into their minds.
