    Teach a class called "The Literary Connotations of Video Games and Puppies and Fireworks w/Lab" to underprivileged 3rd-world blind dying orphans.

    That should cover 1-5.

    that would be awesome if it existed. :thumbup: as Depakote alluded to, you probably can't do 1-5 in one shot. take a public speaking course, and get some clinical experience and talk to patients, doctors, nurses, everyone. the ER or a community health clinic would be ideal as you can meet people from all walks of life.
