This afternoon I sat through a mandatory meeting for graduate students which consisted of two conservatory staff members rambling about their life experiences. Needless to say, I was less than thrilled.
The first guy that spoke to us talked primarily about how you never know where life will take you, or how your experiences will benefit you down the road. After he had been talking for about 20 minutes without really saying anything, he mentioned that he had originally planned to be a pastor.
Scott, a violist, leaned over and whispered, "That explains so much."
