Using parallelism, rewrite the following story starter:
Studying long hours, giving up fun-filled time with friends, and lots of coffee to drink were my habits when I was in school. My favorite classes were ancient Greek, quantum physics, advanced chemistry, and I also liked microbiology. At that time in my life, reading compelling subject matter was more important to me than to play cards with the rest of the gang. I wanted to get good grades, to retain my scholarship, and be working part-time at a job that would help my future career. I wanted to not only impress my instructors, I wanted to impress my boss. Because of this, I worked industriously and studied with diligence. I was constantly worried that my scholarship money would evaporate, that I'd lose my job, and that my future career would be hampered by one of my coworkers.
