I still remember the 1 hour 20 minutes train ride to university.
I used to study for exams, read books, listen to my iPod, and watch other passengers get on & off the train trying to figure out where they might be coming from, where they are heading to, and how their day is going.
Switching two trains and then walking to Rutgers Business School was a 5 day routine for me. It was scary at first, but then became second nature. I still remember the smell of the waiting area, the timetable of my trains and which train will leave from other platforms (thanks to my friends who accompanied me while we ran after classes to catch our trains).
The entire take-the-train-then-switch-to-another-one taught me a lesson: Always Remember Who You are and Where You Came From. Also that You Are Meant for Great Purposes. If you can’t remember where you came from, you can’t figure out where you are heading! The truth will set you Free!
