Physics

In my senior year of high school, I won the Physics prize, competing against students who went on to study not just at N.C. State but at MIT.

How did I so excel in a subject in which, to put it charitably, my natural talents did not lie? Then and now, other than the fact that I paid rapt attention to our teacher because she was a walking, talking, jiggling illustration of the concept of simple harmonic motion, I have absolutely no idea. To this day, physics remains, to me, both baffling and utterly fascinating, even if my concentration has veered from simple harmonic motion to ballistics.
