My husband came up and said we had to meet my son in the emergency room of the closest hospital. Our son had severe chest and back pains. They were an hour away and we were terrified. We jumped in our clothes and headed out. I left the front door unlocked for the lady in charge of the dinner, as I had the food for the dinner in my refrigerator. I called her and told her the situation. I asked her to please call the prayer chain and that we would let them know as soon as we knew something.
Produce. Go into the fields and pick your own fruits and vegetables at farms and orchards. Mom and dad did this and we loved it. The alternative is farmers markets. You will get better, fresher produce that will last longer at home. You will spend time with the kids having fun and save a bundle of money. It’s even more fun to get the kids to help with canning the produce.
As much fun as everything else is in college, the homework and the classes could be considered boring, or a waste of time. If you feel this way, look up the definition of “college.” It’s about the education you get just as much as it is about personal growth and fun. Plus, what you do in your classes will have a profound effect on your post-undergraduate options. And, believe it or not, if you picked the right major, it can sometimes be satisfying to go to class. Regardless, that’s what you came to school for, and you need not forget that. Work hard.
Also, realize that for real news and to be taken seriously stop reading the tabloids and tabloid magazines as your main news source. Read some trade papers like the The World Street Journal and learn about international news by reading the New york Times. This is another great way to keep track of trends in any industry you choose as a career.
Despite my expertise and the care I took, I remember looking back at resumes I sent at the early part of my search and remarking (to myself), “WHAT was I thinking?” Now, mind you, these resumes were solid – well done. I even got interviews from several of them – including some that I wasn’t technically qualified to do (but I digress). The point – even though I knew what I was doing, actually updating my own resume and resending it over and over made me a much better applicant. Practice (and waiting) paid off in the job I landed – heading up the career center at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.
Cleanthi Peters sued Universal Studios in florida for mental anguish and emotional distress. Why? It seems that their Halloween Horror Nights haunted house was too scary.
Look for the study areas of your dorm first thing. Every dorm has quiet areas and study corners. Get to know where they are, and the vibe in each one. Yes, all of them must be silent, but there can be varying amounts of people in each that may be just as disturbing to focused studying.
