I think my guidance counselor said I should be a janitor. I probably would have been happier being one. Unfortunately no one wants to hire an accountant janitor.

Not true. My guess is there are jobs galore for these combined talents as long as the companies can average the pay scales of each and then pay you accordingly. I see a bright future.

How would anyone know? Teachers in my school didn't have conversations with students outside of class. They didn't share that stuff, if they had any opinion at all. In HS many students didn't show particularly outstanding talents, yet, and teachers didn't have any idea how a student in their class performed in other classes, so they had no way to evaluate students, anyway, except by their performance in the one subject the teacher taught.

Also, some students had rich lives outside of school, where they may have demonstrated leadership qualities or gifts that teachers knew nothing about. Teachers in my school had no idea one of the students was a fashion model with a lucrative career already (she looked quite average), or that another student was raised multi-lingual, due to her ethnic heritage, which they also knew nothing about, or that another student was a community leader and activist, or that yet another was a gifted musician, playing in a city youth orchestra.

One told my mother that I showed enough talent to become a writer.

Another one thought I'd become an artist.

Neither happened.
