What I really learnt at University

Those that go to University do so to extend their knowledge in a particular field but inevitably also learn a lot in a variety of others. Depending on whether your course sustains your interest those life lessons might be more important than your diploma. I found out half way through my degree that it wasn’t for me, I persevered none-the-less and along with a feast of boring Comp Sci edu-ma-cation I learnt that following that I think are just as important:

  1. Speaking your mind is better than putting it in text.
  2. You learn a helluva more from accomplishing something difficult on your own than being taught how to do it.
    • It also takes longer.
  3. Aslong as your room is clean and tidy you don’t feel so bad about the rest of the house.
  4. Everyone is a small fish, most just don’t know the size the pond.
  5. Nothing stays free forever.
  6. They mock you for being prepared but they love it when it pays off.
  7. Girls are frequently cold.
  8. One girl is a good investment of your time; otherwise have caution.
  9. Grammar is your friend.
  10. Exceed expectations/achieve your best as often as possible.
  11. Appreciate what you’ve got, and keep it if you can.
