Without taking risks and breaking your plan, you won't experience chance. Sometimes the best things happen when they are unplanned or unexpected.
I hope we get to a point where we will start paying more attention to raw, natural skill set and experience rather than a letter grade because that letter does not matter AT ALL in the real world.
We rush to work, eat our lunch; we rush conversations, our breaks, sleep, and much more. There seems to be this constant need to overachieve in what we do, weather that be school or work, I feel like all this leads to is burnout and unrealistic expectations.
