Do we really have to slave for these institutions? Are they our last resort? Why colleges and not jobs? WTF?!

Thanks Paul Graham.
However, after his, "A LeBron Team is never desperate." I have to question my previous choices.
The lack of character demonstrated in that quote makes me upset.
You work with teammates, and as a leader you should be the first to fall and the last to rise.
I really can't admire someone who character isn't this way.

Moral of the Story: Be nice, even if people are assholes. If you are not, you could potentially lose some important positions, jobs, promotions, etc.
People choose who they like, not who necessarily does the best job.
By the way, if the entire organization is immersed in asshole structure just quit and do your own gig. It's not worth it having to deal with people of this sort.

However, this is not what I got.
He told me how he was a professional at taking orders and how all of a sudden I changed up on him and was screwing him over.
I got angry and thus I will not be ordering from King' ever again.
You could have told me there was a communication error. You could have apologized, and reminded me to speak a little more clearly the next time. If you were to be really good, you would have included a free soda.
But no, you call me an idiot.
Never imply this to your customers. Even if they might be. You have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

First, we are going to finish Lesson 23. Then we won't start another book, instead, we are going to review a lot.
Good news is that there won't be any major test. An even better news is that we will still have Ting1xie3 plus oral presentation. The oral presentation takes place of those exams and each of you will be expected to do at least 6 or 7 of it. The topics will cover pretty much everything we learned in fall and winter. What you are also going to do is to improve your handwriting. Don't expect to get a 4 or a higher grade if you can't even write your name in Chinese...
I will help you through some basic grammars.
There won't be too many new stuff to learn while I believe a better foundation is better than tons of new knowledge for you at this moment.
This is exactly what language programs in he USA need to teach. Strong overlearned foundations so that all the basic stuff sticks real well. When you travel to a foreign country, what you want to do is communicate in the most simple way. You do not need all those ridiculous subjunctive tenses. Trust me I speak Spanish. You only need to know what you would actually really want to say.

However don't say something without being able to back it up. If the lines at Stratton happened to be long, I would have been angry at them relative to other experiences.

There's always a possibility, disregarding it means you fall from great heights, possibly never come up again.
Always believe you can get back up on your feet. That's what it's all about.
There is always one game that counts. The last one. You can always get there like the Braves, however 10 years from their accomplishments many of us forget how good they were because the Yankees took the trophy home. To win, is to win the last one, not everything before that.
On another note, wagering on the Giants was an awesome idea with the odds stacked again. Especially when there's a 14 pt spread.

I asked myself the same question when I finally decided to post after having a page. Initially I had gotten a bug, "I had to learn CSS" and read on design, went through tutorials and in the end I never got on to posting.
Today I see myself forgetting my last moves, the struggles, successes and failures. I feel the need to actually embody my idles, instead of just reading their writings, in addition to record my progress and stop talking bs.
Sure, I have an SAT test tomorrow that I could be studying for, I could be reading up on Pride and Prejudice, I could be working on what people ask of me, however I don't see myself following orders in 20 years. I want to carve my path. So I will try to blog.
I begin this with the college application process in mind. I've been bugged with questions like where do I want to go? Do I need to go? Is this what's best for my life?
I hope I answer these questions through my writings, I hope you guys help me see the light. I don't know everything and this blog is most importantly for myself, a diary, that if I'm lucky will be good enough for other to read and enjoy and learn from.
So it begins.
