Something inspirational...

Randy Pausch, most recently known for his Last Lecture, died a few months ago. If you haven't watched his lecture, I highly recommend it. It's a little long, but if you have an hour to watch it, it's definitely worth it. I just found it on somebody's blog.

I loved these lines:
-Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
-Brick walls are there for a reason: They let us prove how badly we want things.
-Wait, and people will surprise and impress you.-Respect authority while questioning it.
-I don't know how to not have fun.
-When you do the right thing, good stuff has a way of happening…
-Get a feedback loop, and listen to it.When people give you feedback, cherish it, and use it…
