From College to Knowledge: Finding Your Passion

After watching the Olympics, I couldn’t help but feel inspired. I felt inspired to finish school and enter the workforce with a sense of purpose. I felt inspired to make a difference.

Everyone remembers that all-nighter back in college — that final exam you spent the preceding eight hours cramming for. But that final exam was planned. You knew when the date was, and were given sufficient time to prepare. Syllabi are a huge part of college. Each semester is laid out in its entirety, and you can plan for all your assignments accordingly. If you don’t complete an assignment on time, you can even ask for an extension.
