I recently dug up some of my old writing from college
to look for some samples for a position. I actually
found a paper that I had done during high school and
handed in during college. I know, plagiarism, but I
wanted to see how my high school writing compared to
my college writing skills. I received an A and the
comments "Once again, one of the best papers in the
class."

After reading through dozens of research papers and
other forms of academic writing, I realized that there
was not much change in my writing over the years. I
started having the feeling "What did I get out of my
education?" Then, I realized that I've always had that
gift/knack/talent and getting the degree was one of
those necessary steps to have those two letters after
your name to land that first job.
