      I'm a student in college, and I'd been turning in these papers that always got poor grades.  I'm a good writer, too, so I didn't get it.  A friend of mine told me that I always spoke in riddles in metaphors.  That's how I think, too.  I read something...

    I think metaphors are one of the best ways to
