The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives. ~Robert Maynard Hutchin
Welcome back everyone to a brand new year! I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are excited to start a brand new year. Whether you are an incoming freshmen, transfer student, a seasoned returner, or an eager senior (or super senior)– I hope you make the most of this year!
This year, during Saints Nation, one of the events was The Evolution of Dance. If you haven’t seen it on YouTube (and I highly recommend you check it out), it is a spectacular show done by the comedian Judson Laically, where he goes through the most popular dance moves over the last 50 years within a seven minute performance. As entertaining as that was, I was also inspired by the provoking speech he about choices. He mentioned how each of us has a choice– whether that be to succeed or fail. If there is a situation in which we have some semblance of control, then we have a choice about the outcome. And for those situations in which we have no control…we are not to worry about that. For most people, especially myself, that is much easier said than done, however it’s good food for thought! So decide now before things get crazy about what you want to focus on this year and what you want to get out of it. Realize you do have a choice, act on that, and see where it takes you!
