How to climb a mountain?
I used to give up things easily when they are too hard. But what are the hardest things when I did not even try them. The most difficult is the initiative to do something.
I want to share a story which I told a group during Eilden trip last year. We had an Indigenous Australian art session outdoor and the surrounding were beautiful mountain range. The story behind my painting as below.
A person who want to achieve the top of the mountain require strong mentality, good equipment, and fitness skills. It is still hard for some people when they face challenges in the middle of the mountain. The key to success is do not give up and keep equipping yourself on the way. Always be thankful for those challenges and people who test you the most so you can become stronger.
There will be a different view on the top of the mountain than on the ground.
I hope you can achieve your mountain of success.

I know most of you guys have started their classes last week, including me or will be starting this week, I always believe in being proactive, as it will surely help us a lot, especially on remote learning. Plan ahead, try to finish all the activities as soon as possible and by the time when you have finished them, you will be ready for your assessment tasks. And another tip, when you can visit the campus, make sure that you visit the library, check out the books that they are selling. with some luck, the available books for sale are related to your field of study and they sell only 50c to 1 dollar! Cheap as chips!
To all those in the Interior Decoration course that are Mac users and need a partition to run AutoCad on your computer effectively, I've found an easier solution than running Bootcamp. https://www.parallels.com/landingpage/pd/general/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwi97NBRD…
