you know, about me and my future...
I've just left school...and I don't know what I want to do...I must have somehow have taken the drug... and landed up here. Jeanne: My name is Jeanne . . and let me tell you my story . .

perhaps we can help each other ...
I've got something here... lots of my friends smoke it...

Started he to work in his father's workshop and told everyone that he had decided to quit university.
In months he became a well-known master. Like father, like son.
But, out of sight, he kept studying . His professors appreciated him
once they knew about his circumstances and ignored his permanent absence.
