New semester, new aspirations?

This coming Monday will be the start of a new semester. More specifically, it will my third year in university pursuing my studies in chemistry.

Throughout the two years in university, I have learned many things, both good, bad and things that are supposed to shape your thoughts on reality. The start of a new semester may just be another facet of life that I will go through and hopefully, learn things the less painful and bitter way.

Last semester, I realised that as much as we want to be the best in what we do, there is a limit to how much we can achieve, given the imperfections of human body, be it in mind, soul or spirit. There's only as much as we can do. (Well, if you watched LUCY, starring Scarlett Johansson, that, I believe, is a mere hoax).

My aspirations are simple. Work hard, be nice to others and just live life in a fruitful way. And in every way, never back down on my own principles just to please others. Lastly, to endure every obstacle, knowing that at the end of the tunnel, I have my reward waiting for me.

How about you?
