Galaxy quest

J: Hey Zach I've just had a letter from your school
Z: Really? What does it say?
J: It says 'your child Zach has been identified as a highly intelligent student who should be expecting the most exacting standards from himself and should be thinking, even at this early stage, of progressing to the most advanced levels of education. In year 9 Zach will be invited to join our Galaxy Group enrichment programme, which is exclusively for students who have exceptionally high potential. This programme is intended to extend their portfolio of experience, hence making them more attractive to the more prestigious universities'
Z (looking at me blankly): I have no idea what that means...
J: I think it means they got you mixed up with some other kid!

Destiny's child...

Destiny looked me in the eye
Now tell me true and don’t you lie
Is that a tear upon your face?
Wild longings can your soul misplace!
If you don't hold your passions tight
You'll lose your way some starless night.

What dreams are these that make you cry?
Such dreams are sent to help you fly!
You weren't meant to sit and weep
For things you lose or things you keep
You were born for joy and love and laughter
And for life to be forever happy after
