get inspired.

"I've never had a job. I've always had a passion. The fact of the matter is I have the same passion about business that I had when I started in 1968. And I think that's what it's about. If you can't get up in the morning and be excited about what you're doing then you better figure out something else. So, what's your passion? Stop and think about it."

Michael Gould, President & CEO of Bloomingdales

I think I failed my first exam at FIT...

I couldn't concentrate! I was so tired. I got through the multiple choice questions and towards the end where we had to write "short answer" essays, my eye-lids couldn't stay up. My brain seriously stopped working. I decided to put my head down for just a second... and guess what happened next. I fell asleep. Well, not completely... but you know when your eyes are closed, your mind is drifting away slowly and you feel like you're completely somewhere else? Well, I was already dreaming... dreaming I was up and out, anywhere but in that chair! I woke up after a student next to me got up to turn her test in. After looking around, I realize I only dozed off for about 10 minutes. By then, I was feeling what felt like the worst hangover in the world. I didn't want to stay to finish the test. I figured I would get them all wrong even if I tried. So I tiredly BS my way through the short answers, turned in my exam, and packed my things to go home. As I walked out of the building, I woke myself up a little more, regained my thoughts... and realized what I had just done. There I was walking out of my first big exam at FIT.... and now fully awake, all I could think was: F.M.L.
