First day at school - My masteral degree

Hello, there! You might be wondering where am I right now, well...after I had my last day at work, I've been enjoying every minute of being jobless again...Actually, today's my first day at school...for those of you who didn't know it yet...I am now taking up my master in Psychology. Anyways, as what I’ve told you, its my first day at school. Unfortunately, their had been some faculty meeting going on right now, so I spent some hours in an internet cafe nearby...Sucks! Why does it have to be on my first day of school! It was not really a good day for me since yesterday...There are some things going on in my mind right now and all this situation are not helping...some people are not helping as well...I read this story a while ago...from one of my girlfriends...Hope someone out there might realize a thing...Read On...

There was a little boy with a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, to hammer a nail in the back fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Then it gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there. A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us. Show your friends how much you care.
