Gain more knowledge. Grow your mental ability. Read, read, read. Don’t just watch TV and movies. Virtually all highly successful people do some form of daily educational reading. Regardless of what they read, they make sure it contains useful and meaningful information from which they can benefit from in the long run. Statistics show that the average person reads less than 1 book per year. If you could read 1 book per week, that would mean about 52 books per year. Now imagine what an advantage that will give you over everyone else.
Forcing myself back onto the grind :/// life science notes because I want to do very well on the final (which is coming super soon omg). Went to a physics lecture today, this lecture hall is how every lecture hall should be modeled after!!!!!!
You know, when I was in high school in Korea, there was this one month I was forced to attended an SAT prep class by my mother, and the instructor was this American, and I’ll never forget him saying, “I mean sure, 2200′s a decent score. I guess you could get into, well, Cornell. But if you want to get into Harvard–”
I would laugh, but it breaks my heart to know how many students - in the world, not just in Korea - cling to this idea of brand name colleges. How damaging. How many youths grow up thinking that there’s only one way to be successful, one way to be happy?
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PARENTS THESE DAYS. DON’T PRESSURE YOUR CHILD AND HAVE THEM FUCKING CRYING BECAUSE OF YOUR DAMN PRESSURE OF HAVING A GOOD FUTURE. YOU ARE SLOWLY KILLING THEM FROM THE INSIDE. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN WITH.
