I am back in Greenville and I had quite an experience this morning that I wanted to share with you guys!
So I stayed with a friend last night who works in the hospital so she had to leave her house at 5:30 this morning. Since I was already awake and couldn’t go back to sleep I thought I would go and get some breakfast. Turns out, the only thing open at 5:30 on a Saturday morning is McDonalds. I stayed healthy though and got a parfait rather than a biscuit! (Remember, where ever you go, you can find a healthy option)!!
Anyways, I pulled my computer out to work on my website and a man approached me asking about my MacBook and how I liked it. I thought he may have worked for apple customer service or wrote reviews or something along those lines. Turns out he just loves apple products!
He showed me all types of neat things I can do with my computer! We got to talking and it turns out he has 5 degrees, WOW! Bachelors, two masters, and two doctorate degrees! He is now a writer and reviews student’s dissertations. I also found out that he was an educator for over 30 years and was a principle at the high school I attended. How crazy!
He gave me his business card in case I ever needed any assistance in my undergraduate degree. He was so sweet and you could just tell how wise he was just by a small conversation!
My advice to you would be to always take the time to talk to people. Honestly he made my brain hurt when he was trying to put certain things into a language that I could understand. As college students, we think we have life figured out, but we have so much more to learn!
He was kind enough to offer his contact information to me, but you should never be afraid to ask for it, you never know when someone you met coincidentally could be helpful to you in the future. I don’t plan to get my Ph.D where I would need my dissertation reviewed, but I know friends who might! I like to think that I am wiser having met him!
I also got a great workout in today, I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 5 miles cycling. I only planned to do 3, but the gym in Greenville has a movie room and they were playing cast away! I couldn’t resist watching until the end!
Thanks for reading!! If you have questions or have a topic you want me to write about, leave a comment!
