“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs

Indeed, follow your heart and intuition… but what if they are wrong? No, there is no “right” or “wrong”… life has no definite answers. I sincerely believe in that.

Not sure how that fits but I think that’s like the opposite of honeymoon… is it? Continue reading

So yeah, project submission dates, science reports, mini essays and so on. Aside from the project like work, we have the usual subject specific worksheets and so on. Oh and of course the term tests are approaching real soon. Continue reading
