The Voice of Reason chimes in on mediocrity

Since I was clearly being self-pitying yesterday re: grades, etc., I naturally reached out to former coworker The Voice of Reason for a little sympathy.

The Voice of Reason is notoriously skilled at bringing me back down to earth. Also, she, like me, finds incompetence hilarious, and seems to draw it like ants to honey. Here, her helpful words of advice on why we shouldn't go back to WorkHell, just because its easier than Con Law and we feel like we are mediocre at life:

I may look like an idiot friday, but StupidLyingCoworker wouldn't even get in the room. SHE is mediocre. We have moved on to bigger and better ways of embarassing ourselves. You left mediocrity in the dust along time ago.

Check and check. She has an excellent point.
