The date is set and I already gave my first deposit.
Fund raising time! =)
i just read a commencement speech of his, and i know the man is successful and all, but i really didn’t expect his speech to be.. moving.
he told of three stories and the third one.. the third one was brilliant. it’s brilliant because i agree and the timing of me reading it was nothing short of serendipitous. i am about to get “memento mori” tattooed on my nape and his third story just happened to be about death and how greatly the notion of one’s death should affect the way life is lived.
i’m so excited to get my tattoo!
i find commencement speeches very inspiring. they always manage to tug at my heartstrings, because they are all about life from here on end. i have yet to graduate, and when i do, i doubt there will be a touching commencement speech by some wise Dumbledore-type person. or maybe there will be, but i am in need of advice on life and i cannot wait 6 more years until i graduate with my master’s, after getting my bachelor’s of course.
so i will read commencement speeches from far and near to somewhat guide me as i make life decisions both big and small.
