DailyDirt: Graduation Advice To Remember

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Maybe you remember your graduation. Maybe you don't. If you were lucky, you graduated college and knew exactly what you wanted to do. You had a job all lined up, and when asked about your plans, you could avoid saying anything along the lines of:
I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.
Here are just a few more pithy words for recent graduates. (PS. Congratulations!) If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    If you were to figure it out, I would recommend making the decision well before college graduation, by which I mean when you either decide not to go to college or when you choose your majors.

    "The truth is, most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive. At that time, we turn around and say, yes, this is obviously where I was going all along. It's a good idea to try to enjoy the scenery on the detours, because you'll probably take a few."

    Spoken like a true Ohioan :-) Bill also carried this philosophy throughout C&H :-)
