Life is moving fast, you've gotta learn, you've gotta do what you have to do; and you've gotta stand up when you fall. Stay focus, be challenging, be the challenge, most importantly stay positive.
You either learn it the hard way or if you're lucky enough you might have the appropriate classes to go through. Like having time to learn, to practice, to execute with time permit.
And it is moving so fast that at times you should slow down and enjoying the journey or you might miss the moment.
Today is not just another day, today is a new day that you can always start doing things you like, allow yourself to learn and explore. Good thing or bad thing is depend on your perspective.
p.s. I've just notice the view from my friend's balcony after being here so many times. It's indeed some view that could be quite spectacular.
