I have a graduate degree from Penn State. I studied at Penn State under a noted Hemingway scholar, Philip Young.

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
By the way, intelligence to me isn't just being book-smart or having a college degree; it's trusting your gut instincts, being intuitive, thinking outside the box, and sometimes just realizing that things need to change and being smart enough to change it.
