Things I Learned Today

It is always important to remember that no matter what your profession is, no matter how old you are, no matter how smart you think you are... you are always, always, always a student.

In light of that, here are some things I learned today:

1)If you have high blood pressure... pour yourself a glass of whiskey and add chestnut blossoms - miracle cure?
2)Wine is like... arm floaties... it's fine when you're five, but at a certain point, people are going to stop taking you seriously.
3)When you ask a Ukrainian student to write what his/her school will look like in the year 2500, don't expect space ships and the moon... you will still read 'teacher gives no hometask' and 'there will be no uniforms'. The future is irrelevant, they will still want the same things!

and finally,

4)Don't expect too much of yourself... if you are always on time, always prepared and always happy... people will start to expect that... and expectations are never good!

That's all the wisdom I have to offer you today! Have a great evening!
