What's it all good for, if you can't apply it?!
My one grudge with the education system is, it doesn't care too much about experience. And yet, this is where all comes to life. Whenever a chance presented itself, I urged myself to get into it. So,...training recruits on life firearms? Did that! Traveling through Central-Europe to finish off logistic jobs? Jipp! Going on a research trip to India? Done! Facilitating a class? Did that too - many! Doing volunteer work in Ireland? Thank you, my Sister! Figuring out how to create a business-facing website? Also done! What can I say? In general: I love busy mondays at the Institute, when everything is humming like a beehive and there's stuff to do people care about.
