'That won't be me'

‘30% of you are going to fail this course.’

‘Look to the person to your left and the person to your right.’

‘One of you isn’t going to pass.’

I looked to the left and to the right.

The people sitting next to me did the same.

‘That won’t be me,’ I thought.

It was me.

The professor wasn’t finished.

‘What you learn now will be different in 5-years.’

We were in a biology class.

7-years later a new textbook came out with a bunch of updates.

He was right. Twice.

Not only did I fail the course, I failed a course which (as of now) was teaching the wrong information.

If the beard is grey, trust what they say.

17-year-old me didn’t respect the grey beard.
