Default I do believe I have a bright future.

As some of you may or may not know, I am currently enrolled in a 4 year automotive program. Now we were unexpectedly scheduled to take a compressed diesel course. Neither of the teachers in my program are diesel certified so we got an outside teacher who was and both the teachers in my program also took the class so they could get diesel certification. The diesel teacher warned us that this was the most difficult course among the automotive courses. We went a greuling pace, starting earlier and ending much later than our normal classes and we still didn't get through all the lessons. The day of the final came, every single person in my class was stressed and nervous, now I have never studied for a test in my life and I have never worried about one before, but I did slightly wish that I had applied myself more during classtime. We start the final, as I am breezing through the questions I think to myself "Is this all the big deal was about?" In 15 minutes I was done, ahead of everyone including both of my normal teachers. I went over to the hands-on segment of the final, the diagnosis seemed almost to be childsplay. In the end with the grades all tallied up, I had 100%, and my teachers got 96% and 94%, now I am not normally very boastful, but my teachers aren't dumb, they're both smart and experienced, so doing better than either of them is a noteable accomplishment, and without the full application of my abilities, I guess I just have a talent for this stuff, now I just gotta graduate and apply my superpowers to the real world.

GO DIESEL! The market for diesel engines is going to start to go up due to Willie'* BioDiesel. Everyone will want a car or truck with a diesel in it. More engines requires more mechanincs. I just wish I was able to goto the school your in.

How did your teachers handle getting schooled by a student?

Congrats though! Sounds like you'll do well!
