    a student went for his student visa

    the visa officer at the us embassy

    pl read on

    Interviewer said "I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one really difficult question. Think well before you make up your mind!"

    The boy thought for awhile and said,"my choice is one really difficult question."

    "Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice! Now tell me this.

    "What comes first, Day or Night?"

    The boy was jolted in! to reality as his VisA depends on the correctness of his answer, but he thought for a while and said, "It's the DAY sir!"

    "How" the interviewer asked,

    He answered "Sorry sir, you promised me that you will not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"

    He was selected for de ViSa..

    is it is the presence of mind


    that makes it possible

    be creative and purposeful

  2. This was a great post and a great breakdown of the student loan system. It's easy to get carried away and not think about the not-so-distant future job that will be easily paying the loan back.
