Advice to young people on education


One of the enriching quotes from my favorite book, The Delany Sisters:

Finish school. A diploma may seem just a piece of paper, but it’s worth a whole lot more than any paper money in the whole world. No matter what happens in your life – if you lose your savings, if you lose your home – an education will help you start over. It is the one thing that no one can ever take away from you.

If you are looking for a better boarding house you may consider the following tips:

  1. Quality of the structure – the structure of the house should be safe and secured
  2. Fire safety – must have fire exits and fire extinguishers
  3. Distance and location – must be a few minutes away from the school
  4. Boardmates –ask around about the people living in the boarding house
  5. Landlords – observe their behavior if they are good-natured
  6. Amenities –depending on your budget you may choose to have an ample cabinet with drawer slide for your personal belongings
