I do loads of blog crunching mostly in the weekend time to stay ahead in my shallow learning curve. “Something isn’t right with you and why do you have to refer back to MIT every time, when you are stuck here?” You asked.
Well, I have always had a dream to study at MIT, since I long I had been accessing ftp servers at project Athena to get offline newsgroups with ftpmail. I think it was the year of 1996!
Yesterday I accidentally stumbled across Shannon’s blog. She just got in to MIT last December. Her profile writing skill is fabulous; I simply love her witty titles! And, the best part? Let me copy that for you …
Consequently, this makes me new here. But in the time that I’ve been at MIT, I have managed to learn two very important things:
1. There are many things you can let go of in life, but NEVER let go of the tiller.
2. Life is much funnier if you’re laughing at it.
Beyond those two lessons, I’m not sure how much else I could possibly have to learn here…
Looking back the years, there were plenty possibilities I let go of in life just to make others happy.
You might say that in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
