Over the months of May and June, I’ve been to a number of high school and college graduations. And while I gave my whole-hearted ‘Congratulations!’ and ‘Best Wishes,’ I was unable to express the one true piece of wisdom I had for these graduates, which was this:
This is what I want to do to anyone embarking on their freshman year of college. But I can’t because throttling people until their cheeks jiggle isn’t usually appropriate. But Billy is right. Stay in school. Stay as long as you can. Cherish it. Because real life? Sucks. Don’t believe me, just look at this graph of Excitement over Time and draw your own conclusions.
I’m not agreed with that graph… in fact after certain age enthusiasm is not a visible enthusiasm but a hidden one, an excitement burning with a cold flame, the kind of excitement when I drool. That’s why I buy bibs wholesale. Based on that alone you could label me a romantic. Nice post!
I have to say, you are good at thinking outside the box.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all
of which have the potential to turn a life around. I won’t do that. Thanks a lot for your compliment!
I loved it when I went back to college after years of real life … best years of my existence. Now, I’m back to reality … it can suck if one’s not crazy.
Yeah, it would help if we had a break from it now and then. I think summer break should be universal. Whose idea was it to get us used to it for 22 years and then take it away?
It’s all Reality’s fault! 😦
