Preview advice from my life guru Apoorv

I just got back from a fro-yo date with Apoorv. I invited him to to talk about his life organization skills on the blog. He promises to think about my questions and answer them by this week. I'm holding him accountable. But first, we can't believe this is a year ago:
summerfammay11
He left me with much to think about (in addition to sugar cookies from the good old South Servery). He gave me his advice to freshman engineers: if you want to be an engineer, ask yourself why. "Because I want to solve problems" isn't good enough. Be specific and think about why you want that certain degree: what do you hope to achieve with that degree? "That way", he said, "even if it is difficult and different from what you expected, you will find motivation if nothing else."

Similarly, he urged me to find my passion instead of pursuing activities to fill my applications: “You’re in dental school anyway." Because even if I am crazy-busy and sleep-deprived, I'll be happy.

I eat up every piece of advice coming from Apoorv because he is one of those rare people who walk the walk.

This is also why he's my life guru (I am not just saying that because he is Indian- he actually grew up in Cyprus). Oh, and his Chemical Engineering team "CHBE Pandas" won the Rice University Engineering Design Competition last week (pronounced "Chubby Pandas" in Rice-talk). Seriously, nbd.

To this age, previously thought only to the foot wet and dry on level 3 schools find it not very long, but in fact it was 10 years ago.
