The state fair is all about the food, but I did have to visit the education building. Not for free pens, pencils, and stickers, but to send a Gustie Gram. Its not every year that I know a current student, but my cousin moved in on Friday! So if he hasn’t yet, eventually he’ll find a note in his post office box from me.
It’s hard to believe that as a member of the 2010 class I’ll have a cousin in the class of 2020. But I am so excited for him to experience Gustavus. College is a wonderful thing. You learn so much from 18-22, but a friend and I were talking this week, and we both argue that 22-25 is a much steeper learning curve.
I’m not the same person I was at 18, or 20, or 24. There were good aspects of my personality then, there are different good aspects now. My point this week, which I’m having a hard time getting to for some reason….Don’t wait around, don’t plan change for 2017. Change now. Accept that things won’t be the same. Explore something new. Try something a little different.
How have you changed? When was the last time you noticed a change in yourself?
