Sharing a thought provoking read by Cass Sunstein: “Evolution favors the most cooperative — and the friendliest.” What if the ones that survive and thrive are not the fittest - but the ones who learn to be friendly, cooperative and see past the silly (societal some would say) divisions? I love reading his books and his articles and had the opportunity to attend his classes that have been just as exciting!
How to pick a grad school for studying abroad? Naturally, one of the first steps should be checking the international academic rankings. A great idea for the second step is to do some research and see which ones of your most followed researchers work at which university.

The night before the final day I cried, threw tantrums, questioned the meaning of art classes and school in general, and eventually gave up. I was ready to go back to school with nothing and get 0 points (which would eventually ruin my grades).
And then something happened. I decided to give it another try and build a simple, tiny temple, only this time not for the art teacher but for me. I wanted to make something that I really liked and enjoy the process. And I did.
The next morning I took it with me to school. I knew I would get at least 1 point (for the effort) and that was better than nothing. Not only did I get the highest number of points, but the art teacher decided to exhibit it in the school entry hall for two months.
I knew I had learned a life lesson back then. Took me a few years though to understand what really went on and what did the magic
