Don’t worry too much about having everything figured out, because the dirty little secret of life, that older people never tell you, is that no one actually has anything figured out! We’re all just getting by, trying to find happiness and purpose. So don’t worry too much, you’ll find your calling one day, I’m still trying to find mine! You can be successful in many different areas of work, not just medicine and law. Success, especially financial, is great, but don’t make yourself unhappy by doing something solely for the money. You need to care about what you do, in some way, even some small way, to make the money and all the hours worth it. Financial security is important, but remember that all those hours you work, to make all that money, is time you will never get back. Time, in my opinion, is even greater than money, because it’s all so intangible. Time never stops for anyone, and you can never really do anything to get more of it. You only get the time you have, so don’t squander it doing something that makes you miserable. Remember all the things, all the stuff, that money can buy? You can’t take it with you when you’re gone. Money is important for the necessary things in life, like healthcare, a place to live, food, etc. And I understand the need for stability, I want that as well. But remember, use your money on things you will remember, and never forget, like seeing your favorite band, or traveling, or whatever you’re passionate about. Money, for me, should be used to buy moments, or memories, if it is used for something.
I always imagine myself at the end of my life, looking back, at all the moments and memories. And I already know some of the stuff I’ll be thinking of in those last moments, and none of them are material, like my clothes or purse or shoes, or anything. I will see myself standing by that lighthouse in Howth, Ireland, staring out at the Irish sea, as I watched the seagulls fly and the crystal clear sky, and smelled the water. I’ll see myself sitting in Hyde Park, in London, on that sunny autumn day, and remember how incredibly at peace I was. Standing on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.I remember being places, with people I love, and experiencing things. Those are the things that money can buy, that are worth every penny. So, when you are looking for a job, a career path, just remember, that all the time you spend working, is time you’ll never get back. Time that could be spent doing something you love. So make sure your job is something you don’t mind spending all that time at, so that in the end, you don’t wind up with too many regrets about the time you spent at work. Find the intersection of your passion and making money, and pursue it relentlessly. That way, you can have the best of both worlds :)
I hope this helps!
Helpful life advice.
I wrote 6000 words in one night, and then edited some (in a span of about 5 and a half hours). This isn’t unusual for me as this is how I’ve always worked. I had previously done this a year ago when I wrote and edited a whole graphic novel (the graphics were provided by a graphic designer of course; the distribution of text and graphics was equivalent) in a day. Am I displaying symptoms of Hypergraphia? Robert Louis Stevenson was said to have written The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a 6000-word book in six days. I have Bipolar Disorder and I’ve heard it’s a symptom. The internet hasn’t provided comprehensive information. Does anyone have any information to share? If not, please reblog so that this post reaches people who can identify with it.
Just a few months ago, the kidnapping of nearly 300 Nigerian girls by the terrorist group Boko Haram was a cause célèbre: There was the ubiquitous hashtag (#BringBackOurGirls), celebrity supporters (some misguided) and political pressure from the international community. And then, just like every other viral movement, it faded from public view.
Much like the #Kony2012 campaign, #BringBackOurGirls seemed to highlight the worst of hashtag activism: People’s tendency to jump on a viral bandwagon until the next media-ready cause rolls into town.
Preparing for the 4-D Printing Revolution
just as the world is beginning to grasp the implications of the 3-D revolution, researchers are proposing an upgrade. Their work suggests that the true promise of digital fabrication lies with a fourth dimension — in printing objects programmed to change over time. Whereas 3-D objects are static and require human control, 4-D objects can react to their environment autonomously, assembling, repairing, or transforming themselves. Advances in this realm will rely less on printing technology than on materials themselves. At MIT, the architect Skylar Tibbitscombined a 3-D printer with a novel combination of materials to create a wirelike object that when dropped in water changed its shape to form the letters “MIT.” It was the pairing of a water-absorbing polymer material with a basic plastic that made the effect possible.
