The title of this blog is more of an indication of what I plan to do instead of what I've been doing. Lately, I've been slacking all around and I know it. I also know that with the end of the year coming up, this is no time to be lazy. Finals are right around the corner, projects will be getting assigned, and the fact that I have to get home in a month is lingering in the back of my head.
I don't mind taking tests, as I've said in an earlier post. I've never been the type to sit down for hours and study until I'm sick. I learn it in class, look over my notes a little bit as a refresher, and take the test. So far it has worked out in my favor. Yes, I know that my grades could be a little better, but they could also be a lot worse.
I have a presentation coming up in my Humanities class over architecture. I do appreciate a good work of architecture especially after taking building construction classes for two years in high school. We studied some various types of architecture and now I'm getting more of a historical background. As a history buff this is right up my alley.
Brian Littrell once said, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." I look at this as though if I strive perfection, even if I don't reach it I'll achieve greatness. We all make mistakes. There isn't a single person out there that can honestly say they have never messed up at some point in their life. In order to make up for the mistake, we must learn from them. Don't let a mistake stop you from doing what you set out to do. Consider each mistake a lesson. Thomas Edison said, "I didn't fail 2000 times, I simply found 2000 ways to not make a lightbulb." Learn from this. Think about what life would be like if he had given up when he made a mistake. What would the world be like if we didn't have the lightbulb?
Never get yourself down. Always remember to shoot for the moon.
Thank you for stopping by.
