Lessons from this semester

Lessons from this semester: (or at least I hope they are lessons and I don’t repeat the same things over again)

  1. Getting what you ask for and getting what you want are not the same thing.
  2. To figure out what you like, you need to experience what you don’t like.
  3. Some things in life are scary. They are often the most rewarding things. Don’t be a pussy.
  4. Failing = Learning (and if life is about learning, then failure is success)
  5. There is a time and a place for everything.
  6. Follow your heart and you intuition. If something feels like a bad idea, it probably is… don’t be stupid (but if you fail see #4).
  7. Don’t walk in the mud with nice shoes. Metaphorically and literally.
  8. DIPLOMACY is an amazing skill to have. (Must. Work. On. This.)
  9. 720p and 1080p are NOT the same quality. (see #2).
  10. Positivity and gratitude are always the answer.
  11. When other people disappoint you, it is an opportunity for you to not disappoint others. (see #2).
  12. Criticism is awesome, it helps you learn. (however see #5).
  13. When challenges come up: recognize them (do not dismiss or ignore them), accept them, find the opportunity they present, and practice gratitude.

That is all. For now.

Oh! and don’t forget to dance! : )
