That was always my experience-a poor boy in a rich town; a poor boy in a rich boy's school; a poor boy in a rich man's club at Princeton .... However, I have never been able to forgive the rich for being rich, and it has colored my entire life and works.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The very first proper play I did was 'Godspell,' and I played the guitar for it, and I had a small part in a high school play. And before that, in sixth grade, I wrote a musical about Noah's ark.
I was in high school. A couple of my friends and I decided we had to be in a class together where we could fool around, and drama was it because we'd do improvs, beating each other up. They left a year later, and I stayed in and got a knack for it, and enjoyed the whole process.
I was a little confused as a kid because I grew up with my mom, and my mom is black. So, I was cultured in a very 'black' way. But when I go to school, I'm getting called 'white.' They would look at me, and they would curse me out. I didn't understand. I just knew I saw people of all different shades, and I was light. Now, I'm in a much bigger world.
The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.
I promised my mom that if, after a year of putting 150 percent into my career it didn't work out, I would go back to school. I never did go back.
I certainly witnessed bullying as a teen in both a small and a big school setting. I feel like it is a universal topic.
Design, to me, is part psychology, part sociology, and part magic. A good decorator should know what's going on in someone's marriage and how their kids are doing in school.
I grew up in Lewisville, there was like 2,200 people at the time. My mother and dad grew up there, went to the same high school I did. Back then, we didn't specialize in any sport. You played football, then basketball, then baseball and ran track. It was great. We had a high school rodeo team. Why I got interested, I don't know. My uncle had a farm. Used to ride calves and horses. It was just kind of natural. Anybody that could ride, entered the rodeos.
When I was a kid, I read many of my mom's books. Sometimes, there were mysteries, but there were no delineations, and my mother never talked about book genres. Nor did we differentiate genres in school.

Life is a school of probability.
My mother used to ask me to stay home from school and keep her company. I'd fake I was sick, and she'd fake believing me.
