we had a guest lecture today in my business class, and he was awesome. he was really down to earth, funny, and laid back. he did the whole lecture from a chair on the front row. the room is shaped like a semi-circle, so everyone could see him and stuff, so he was just chillin in his chair and talking to us. apparently he teaches the same class as the one im in, and i almost wish i had been in his class! he was a riot! although i am learning a lot right now, but i digress...
the guest lecturer said something that i really liked, and ive been thinking about ever since. he said: "youre only young once! live your life, and get more Cs in college! everyone needs to mellow out, this is not the real world!" i think it was sort of meant to be because i have been stressing myself out with school. i went to bed last night at 3am, and then woke up at 7:30 to run up to my 8am class. i over obsess about everything school-related, as in im not good enough and then stress out. your life is made of experiences, so have some!
he also made fun of this girl that was asking all these questions at the start of class (and then later left). he goes, "good grief, did you see that poor girl obsessing about an assignment in a pass/fail class!? its pass/fail! all these nerds at byu need to calm down!"
anyways, it was just refreshing to hear, especially at such a prestigious school like BYU. he was saying how jumping through all these hoops and doing busy work is a waste, and that is not the real world. so live your life and get more C's!
