Fresher Thoughts

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

  1. 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.
  2. Fact and fiction collide and make no sense of each other.  That is the perfect fusion.
  3. 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.
  4. Embrace change.  People who don’t change eventually start to smell.
  5. There is no ‘perfect’ moment. Pool your skills together, work as hard as possible, and hope for enough luck to fuse it all together.
  6. Simply thinking it isn’t enough.  Think it and respond!
  7. Influence and inspiration are more powerful than you’ll ever imagine.  Find yours and you will find yourself.
  8. 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!
  9. Five senses, infinite possibility.
  10. If you can’t find the time to do it, you’re not busy enough.
  11. Opinion alone is boring.  Explore, learn, and understand.
  12. Feel your best and you will do your best.
  13. There is no point in being too stubborn.  It will just bring out your negativity.
  14. Working alone has its benefits.  Teamwork has its benefits.  Make both your priority and start making a difference.
  15. 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!
  16. Don’t automatically ridicule what you do not appreciate, relate to, or understand.  Open yourself up to it instead.
  17. 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.
