Long time, no write as it has been extremely busy with work. I am working some important projects at school and have taken a second job at night.

In the last few months I have learned a few things. Politics and personal interaction are not easy, so as I navigate through the mine fields I have made a checklist of things that I feel are the keys to personal interaction. In the interest of sharing here is my list. Feel free to comment or use this list for yourself.

1. Don’t talk.
2. If you have to talk, say as little as possible.
3. You don’t have to be right.
4. You don’t have to have the last word.
5. Listening is preferred over talking.
