Forum: Do Expectations Sometimes Ruin A Day/Event?
Hi priddyb98,

First of all, congrats for your daughter experiencing new things and moving up in the world! I actually did not attend my junior or senior prom, so that's great that young students like to participate in that!

Before I share my thoughts on your question, I'd like to share a quote from Tyra Banks that I actually try to follow. "I’m a perfectionist. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it’s ok if there are flaws here and there".This is important to remember because, in life, we are so inundated with random crap like memory cards (hope that's ok to say) that we need to always almost relentlessly remember to move forward despite setbacks, failures, or distractions. I think life is all about cultivating virtue, learning from mistakes, and simply moving forward no matter what obstacle or expectation!

Now, to answer your forum question directly, I always have trouble dealing with my study habits and goals. Especially math and stats courses, I could plan on completing an assignment due, lets say Wednesday! It could be Monday morning when I begin the project and then Tuesday night comes along at about 12a and you're still on #2. It's a vicious cycle and I need to learn to let go of simple mistakes that can be reviewed later and at least finish the task to move on to more important courses such as Organic chem or Physics in my to do list!

Hope that helps,

Peter

Forum: Would you want to start a business?
Hi everyone,

I hope everybody is pumped up, caffeinated, and willing to dominate this upcoming week! For most of us, the semester is almost over! Let's go for it!

I've actually been toying with the idea of becoming an entrepreneur. Not that I have much money for investment purposes, but it could happen if Apple was started up in a garage.

My central question to you all is, if you were to start up a company, what would the company be centered around and how would you go about it, or would you even go for it?

Please reply and share your thoughts!

Peter

Hey Benjamin!

First of all, I think most people on here are to honestly seek out scholarships. So, the very first thing any of us would probably do is pay off all of our bills and expenses for school! I don't know about you guys, but that's the first thing that propagated my mind when I read your post.

But the second or more interesting first action I'd take is pay off my family's debt as well and hope they can retire early! I'm gunning to become a doctor and I'd like them to live long enough to see me through comfortably.

In terms of what I'd do with the money, I'd defintely start up a business in my field of occupation. I've been cultivating ideas for a while now and I think the money would allow me to invest into it!

Of course, we all would save a little bit for selfish reasons. (High price gadgets, gym memberships, food, valentine's day, Birthdays...etc)

Have a rocking week of productivity,

Happy Sunday Rivika84,

That is actually a very tough line of questioning! There's a lot of edible things out there that are way up there on my list of "have to have's".

In terms of caffeinated beverages, I've been lucky enough to not require daily shots of it! However, as a medical major, caffeine is the only way to learn organic chemistry now-a-days and I'd definitely be in the trenches if it weren't for my maybe once a week hit of start bucks double shot! Very specific product and I won't drink anything else. It's got protein and coffee. The two secret weapons to learn the ways of the force in University.

However, if that were to disappear, I'd be groggy around every Wednesday, but I can't function without black beans! This food is essential to my success. Chipotle offers it and that's when I got hooked. Now, I keep at least 5 cans at a time in my pantry at all times and even a back up bag of dry ones for emergencies.

Hope that answers your question!

Sincerely,

pgittens
