x is it legal or correct to refer to your creation process as birth? If so, it lessens all of us as a whole.

Pretty much all the chem labs & a whole bunch of math/physics assignments.

Perhaps a better question would be - "what projects/assignments were you actually proud to hand in?"

my thesis project in college was a piece of crap.
75% was due to factors outside of my cotrol, 25% was my own lack of effort.

Either way, I gave it a facelift and presented it at my current job as a presentation during my interview process, and it got me the job. It still doesn't appear in my portfolio anywhere, and never will!

Standardized union buster tests. I didn't realize until middle school that I could simply refuse to do them. I wish I had known that sooner.
