A Balanced Diet

Top of her class :

“Brianna Smrke didn’t know she was perfect. But after a phenomenal final year of high school, logging hours of homework a night, there’s no doubt she is, earning 100 per cent in each of her eight courses. Grade 12 students usually take six courses.”


“While Smrke spent about seven hours doing homework each night — working from 3 p.m. to about 11 p.m., with a break for dinner — she also found time to work on fundraising initiatives, help distribute food to the homeless, be a volunteer math tutor and a “best buddy” to a special needs student at her school.”

I was struck by the combination of long hours and varied diet.

Brianna worked on matters well outside the study arena.

Our parents were correct: “ All work and no play makes jack a dull boy ”.

Here is a quote from “ 5 ways to take a guilt-free vacation “:-

I never cease to be amazed by people who wouldn't dream of giving back part of their paycheck, yet who don't take the time off to which they are entitled.

Talk to Me !
