    If you could give your 24 year old self a piece of advice what would it be?  Why?  (ideas to consider: dating/relationships, career, service/community engagement, religion, education, etc.)

    The world may not owe you anything but you owe yourself the world!

      I like it.  Thank you, dashingscorpio!  It's funny how most people seem to get your first statement backwards, "The world owes you everything and you don't owe anyone, yourself included, anything!"

      I like how you put that, Thanks!

    The most difficult degree to conquer is the Bachelors (undergraduate), the easiest is the Masters and the next easiest is the Doctorate. The graduate degrees will earn you a higher salary and you will have to work less hours to receive the greater salary.

      Working smart and working hard are clearly not the same thing.  Good point!  I'm glad to hear that in August I'll have finished the hardest degree!  :-)

    finish your degree, get a stable job, buy your own car, buy your own house, then you can start looking for a gold fish.

      I graduate in August, so it looks like I've got one down!  Sounds like self-sufficiency is a quality you would recommend developing?
