2. Being respected is hard
3. Everything you learned in college is useless
4. Never stop learning
5. You live or die by your text editor, so choose wisely
6. No one really cares what college you went to
7. Silence never goes out of style
8. You will meet odd, strange and unpleasant people, deal with it
9. Make friends with IT
10. You will never escape office politics
