Sorting through some old papers the other day, I came across a whole load of stuff I couldn’t even remember writing.
One piece of A4 paper had 17 thoughts/ideas written down from my Fresher year. I’m guessing they’re my own thoughts. I haven’t credited another source, but I don’t know why I wrote this and what it was for.
Nevertheless, I felt it would be fun to put this up on TheUniversityBlog, since these were clearly important to me at the time as a new student. Some of it reads a bit strangely now, although I’m sure it seemed amazing at the time. 🙂
If you recognise these points from somewhere else, please let me know. For now, I’ll take it that these thoughts came from my mind!
So here you are. Here’s my 17-point masterpiece, unedited, for all to see. What do you think?
17 Fresher Thoughts
- Return to a piece of writing/art that you have previously experienced and note the differences and additional feelings that you notice in this return journey.
- Fact and fiction collide and make no sense of each other. That is the perfect fusion.
- There’s a lot to be said about Feng Shui. If all components are in place, the focus can run for longer. With enough stamina, it may be possible to fly.
- Embrace change. People who don’t change eventually start to smell.
- There is no ‘perfect’ moment. Pool your skills together, work as hard as possible, and hope for enough luck to fuse it all together.
- Simply thinking it isn’t enough. Think it and respond!
- Influence and inspiration are more powerful than you’ll ever imagine. Find yours and you will find yourself.
- The smallest of things could be the start of something big. The biggest of things could be the gateway to a billion small things. Start collecting!
- Five senses, infinite possibility.
- If you can’t find the time to do it, you’re not busy enough.
- Opinion alone is boring. Explore, learn, and understand.
- Feel your best and you will do your best.
- There is no point in being too stubborn. It will just bring out your negativity.
- Working alone has its benefits. Teamwork has its benefits. Make both your priority and start making a difference.
- Find your natural speed. Feel the adrenalin pumping and see how your natural speed is your own unique optimum speed. Any faster is slower. So start cruising!
- Don’t automatically ridicule what you do not appreciate, relate to, or understand. Open yourself up to it instead.
- All this opening up can be productive, but remember to keep your guard up. A guard is better than a block or a total breakdown in communication. Remember, you are guarding, not stopping.
I haven’t a clue who these were aimed at. Myself? Another person? Nobody in particular?
Whatever the case, I was happy to find the piece of A4 paper with these 17 thoughts on. A positive find.
