I have learned many things in half a year of blogging my lessons learned. Here are some of them:
- Lessons are everywhere!
- People are happy to share their lessons
- It is fun to get feedback, comments, email on all this
- It’s really hard to keep up and post one a day
- But I did it!!! Yay!
Thanks everyone! Keep them coming!
This may be one the biggest things I’ve learned this half-year. It feels deeply profound to me.

Kat learned that instead of scouring the streets of Manhattan for the Wall Street Journal, she can send out an intern to do it. Especially a paid one.
seat on the bus! After almost two years, I am seeing the first trend of people getting turned away from a full bus! Maybe it will even out as summer gets going, but there was a week there of full buses every morning and some evenings.
I am learning that arriving a few minutes earlier pays off big time!
I am still learning to back up essential files.
I have learned, again and again and again, that what really feeds my soul, deep down where it matters, is being with my own wonderful family and my glorious and truly fun friends.
Ben and Madhuri taught me that you can use Control and + on any modern browser to proportionally zoom the screen! Who knew?

Barbara taught me this term. It comes in handy when you are feeling sorry for yourself and something wakes you up.
I remembered it when I saw something I have never seen before: a baby section of a cemetery. Wow.
[and thus ends this 3-day theme]
I hope I have finally learned to get the exact address of a cemetery, when in a funeral procession. It’s no time to be lost.
