It’s always a good thing to realize and appreciate the hard work behind great products. I guess we’re all still learning anyone going through hardship and struggle through school or the like, well this is a lesson for you, your efforts will not go unnoticed, keep working hard all the best in life to all who read this Peace!

'11 says: January 28, 2012 at 10:33 am the best mit blog I’ve read in the last 2 years. happy to see it’s already flagged as byob ps. if you don’t want to grow up yet, go to grad/professional school it only sucks to be the only one not having any income when you go out to dinners now with friends from college also, i feel like my life is not too dissimilar from mit life. i go out to dinners more, spend more time at coffee shops, and is much less hosed. kind of miss mit sometimes though…enjoy it while you’re there Chris S. '11 says: January 28, 2012 at 10:43 am botb* not byob. this is what post-grad life does to you -______- Gill says: January 29, 2012 at 3:47 am People like you because you Connect, in your own gooberish way. Don’t ever loose that Elizabeth :’) Marilyn Decker says: February 1, 2012 at 9:41 am Embrace the routine sweetie! Yet keep learning……..then balance with fun along the way ! YES, no one is perfect, and the important thing is that you are on the right road. When you have your health you got just about everything, so don’t neglect it while keeping up with the demands of life. I PRAY and can’t wait to hear if my son is accepted to MIT. It will be a dream come true for all of us. m says: February 8, 2012 at 12:20 pm awesome entry! xD i love your blogging style!
