In the Beginning:
So, hunting and fishing were a source of recreation for the next five years, while I toiled as a clerk in the small general store that belonged to our family. Fortunately, business and my social life weren’t too demanding and I had lots of opportunity to read and study eleventh and twelfth grade texts at night, and sometimes in my spare time during the day. It took five years, eventually I passed all the examinations I needed to matriculate.
