You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period.
2. You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called life. Each day in this school, you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.

A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. You will then be presented with the next lesson.
5. Learning lessons does not end.
As long as you are alive, there will be lessons to be learned.
6. "There" is no better than "here".
When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" - and it will again look better than "here, but in the end it really isn't.
