I look at my University Apple in a different light- I never saw it as a merit 
badge, but as a nice reminder that I actually taught someone else something... 
it's actually the cookie I'm most proud of, because it took a lot to overcome 
an immense shyness to get up in front of folks to teach.  It still scares me, 
frankly, but I just think teaching is so important.  These days though I try 
to teach things one on one....
