OK, by now I am sure you are wondering, what does this have to do with bikinis? When you highlight, you should only cover the essentials. A one piece suit covers things that don’t neccessarily matter. A cover-up covers even more, a lot of which is not needed. A big beach towel can be wrapped around and covers everything.
That’s the middle of the three paragraphs. Good for students and it catches their attention. I think I’ll use it.
Thanks for the simile.
It requires three steps:
1. Choose a mixture of courses that all seem interesting to you. No more than half of these courses should be in a subject that you already know something about. (This will keep things novel.)
2. Calculate the number of hours per week you will need to handle the workload for these courses.
3. Double this total. Keep this number of hours free in your schedule. This probably means you wonâ€™t have many activities going on. This also means the course load you choose in (1) must be reasonable.
This advice is so simplistic as to border on facetious. But itâ€™s the truth. The students who make great mental leaps, and really become more sophisticated thinkers, are those who have more than enough time to think about, work on, grapple with, and revel in their coursework.
Again from the middle. The set up is a student from Princeton asking advice. Good stuff.
