The kindly old manager at my internship site ordered pizza on the respective last working day of each intern. When appetites were sated and the ultimate conclusion approached, he asked each intern for a piece of wisdom.
On sudden inspiration, I gave my sage advice. It seems to me that expectations are the root cause of all dissatisfactions, dissappointments, and disasters. So, dear friend: Beware of expectations.
