New Semester Resolutions

Career Peers

If you are like me, you make new semester resolutions at the start of every term. If you are like me, many of these resolutions are lofty, vague, and eventually unfulfilled. By setting SMART goals, can acheiving my goals actually be possible?

Dave's Diary: Stubborn or Persistent? A Stark Difference

Persistence

Like most things, persistence is something of a double-edged sword: it can be either a huge strength when applied in a constructive direction, or an outright flaw when clung to too tightly in situations that call for more flexibility. Like Ned Stark's honour, it can earn you respect and carry you to high places, but it can just as quickly get you into serious trouble.

Dave's Diary: Procrastination Problems? Maybe Not...

CSI Blog

If you're human, you'll admit to having procrastinated about something. If you're an honest human, you'll admit to having procrastinated about a lot of things.

(I just couldn't help it, sorry!) I had heard about other people getting weird looks and even nasty remarks about their moustaches before (you'll be glad to know I didn't get any nasty remarks, though of weird looks there were plenty). I had prepared myself for these things. However, it's what I didn't expect that I found to be most noteworthy.
