Today was another one of those test days. It didn’t start out so well, because I woke up later than I had planned, and I had to rush out the door in order to make sure that I was going to catch my bus. Being late for a test is anything but cool.
I made it in time, and as my friend and I were chatting before we were allowed to look at the exam, we hear our prof saying that this test will be hard. There I am, feeling quite nervous about the exam, and then he says that. Well, thank you too!
Not that I have anything against hard exams. I mean, sure, it would be great if I could just get a super easy one, get a high mark, and feel great about myself. But that wouldn’t be all that fair. However, being told that this exam will be hard just as I was about to begin it…I don’t know, but there’s something that doesn’t seem right to me.
The test was actually quite decent, and I felt I had a good enough grasp of the material.
Later on that day, as I was relaxing after the rather stressful experience, I started thinking to myself about the important things in life. What is it that we value? Obviously, I put quite a lot of value into this education I was getting, or else I wouldn’t have felt so stressed about the test. But this isn’t the only thing that’s important.
The funny thing is that as I started to think about it, I realized that even small things, that we don’t consider all that big, are still important. I mean, take cleaning your house for instance. Most people don’t think of that as a huge priority, but it is, nevertheless, important.
I hope you enjoyed the mind map I made for important things in life. I think this is more of a standard one, and each person has their own version of it. Mine would definitely have writing somewhere in there. What about yours?
