After five years of college, I feel that I've learned a lot, retained about half of it (at least) and am finding out that only experience reeducates and solidifies those learned theories. I think it's called applied knowledge.
There's always a difference between book smarts and street smarts, but both deal with integrity and passion. Something that I've come to understand in the past months writing and interviewing, and talking to old friends about their careers-- moving in opposite directions.
Today I received two fortune cookies with my lunch. The first one said: "With integrity and consistency, your credits are piling up." A very uplifting fortune, but probably as real as the "death cat" on House M.D. last night-- positive nonetheless.
Still, I forgo my usual weekly blog this week to say that I have written something to post, hopefully, later this week. It's something I took great thought and time for both who I have written it for and who will be reading it. It is definitely something that I think will spark discussion if posted.
I await approval from one end, and await reaction on the other. If things persist negatively, then maybe the second cookie's fortune will come true: "You will soon be changing your present line of work."
