do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world

Anna Sullivan – January 29th, 2018

You may have defects, be anxious and sometimes live irritated, but do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world. Only you can prevent it from going into decadence. There are many that need you, admire you and love you.

I would like to remind you that being happy is not having a sky without storms, or roads without accidents, or work without fatigue, or relationships without disappointments.

Do I Need an Internship or Not?

UVA Career Center – February 22nd, 2017

University students are eager to find opportunities either due to genuine interests or peer pressure. Finding internships is one of the lingering topics among students, and students who secure internships will be asked frequently by peers of how they find those internships. Doing internships almost becomes a default that students have to do some time during college years. While one needs working experience to build the resume, it has more long-term effects to think about what internships could do for you than only focusing on the quantity of things you do.
