A) Read the Desiderata
- Remember specifically: “Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.”
B) When joining a sports team or going to dinner in a residential hall that looks like it is out of Harry Potter (maybe because it is actually in a 400-year-old building), smile a lot.
- This will help you make friends even more than beating them in a race will.
C) Take fruit whenever it is offered.
- If you don’t want the fruit you have, however, take it to a bar with you and offer it to drunken people or hungry people.
- Or make banana bread.
