The one thing I learned in 2011 is patience and suffering. You learn to have patience and at some point suffer a bit. I suffered personally, academically and personally during 2011 and I am hoping that things will turn around in 2012. The one thing I really learned in 2011 is that you have to have patience for things such as trying to pass your EMT Recert license. Also I learned a lot about suffering and suffering for who you are and what you are. We all suffered in one form or another and everyone at one point suffered whether economically, financially or socially. So the one thing I learned, is that everyone suffers at some point and that if you don't learn how to suffer, life becomes a major issue.
