Heard: Some Know Their Place

I am a proud Washingtonian who recently started an internship at a Smithsonian museum. During orientation this week, I overheard a conversation between two other interns, a short yet sweet quip that succinctly portrays the typical intern mentality of constant academic comparison: "Yeah, I go to Yale. But don't worry, I, like, never know what I'm talking about." At least this intern was cognizant of the 'importance' of their place of education.
