Chris,

So glad you liked the documentary. As far as the whole college thing, my teachers taught me that the best way to get into college would be by exploring things that interested me and doing things that I was passionate about rather than what I thought would earn me an acceptance letter to a prestigious college -- at the end of the day (and as actual conversations with admissions officers have revealed), admissions can see through the activities done for the purpose of a resume and what makes someone stand out is the love of learning/intellectual curiosity/exploration of interests that teachers have been trying to promote all along.  As far as being reminded of all the things we were once passionate about, what I've learned in college is to try anything and everything (I walked on to the varsity fencing team last year after never having fenced in my life) and just to see what sticks.
