What Happened To You?

When a person graduates high school as one of the top students, all sorts of grand predictions are made for the person's future. But how many of them end up doing the things predicted of them?

What makes a good teacher or professor? Is this teacher really reckless or is it a legit demonstration that benefits students?

More and more women are looking to expend their sexual energy in a manner that they perceive to be safe and committment-free. Why didn't this happen when I was in high school?
