Outside of academics, I learned a lot of lessons from my friends, and various other advisers on campus. Some of the biggest lessons I learned were:
(1) The importance of prioritizing
(2) That sometimes it is okay (and necessary) to make yourself priority 1.
(3) The value of community.
(4) Just because you don't like someone, doesn't mean you can't get along with that person.
AND (5) You can tell a lot about a person's character, by how they treat you in a crisis situation, after you have been rude and/or mean to them in the past.
