Do not allow your teachers at your institutes let you feel as though you are not intelligent through the feedback they provide you, with regards to your work. Remember that they are following a set criteria which your inquisitive mind wanders beyond. Some minds were not made to be contained in a four walled room, limited with specific information and particular objectives. Your intellect never has and never shall be defined by the grades which you may receive. Sadly, the educational system attempts to mould the malleable mind. It stops it running free. Do not question the manner in which you articulate and express yourself because it may not be met with agreement by those who are put in positions, by man, to pass judgment on your style. You are a unique artist. Do not limit the places your mind is able to reach. Do not hinder it or halt it.
