My blogs are slowly flying by, and I have promised to deliver as many as I can before my homework and exams overtake me! Therefore, with a tiny bit of time on my hands, I’d like to make one friendly suggestion to you all…..
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ROSES!
I don’t mean to be rude, but sometimes the imperative is necessary in order to grab one’s attention.
What I really mean is that, in our last few weeks at Converse, I want you all to always remember that it is always good to take a moment in the rush to see the beautiful lovely objects and sights which our school, and life generally, can provide.
It is odd, but this past week, I has what you might call a midsophomorelife crisis! Yes, my friends, at age nineteen, it is possible to have thinning hair, achy joints, and late night crashes.
To my dear prospective who read this-Please remember, there is a happy ending here! Consider this crisis a sort of rite of passage! But, more importantly, always remember that in the midst of your academic madness, it is always important ot take a break, breathe calmly, and to find at least one positive point in each day. Whether this is in a ten minute power nap, a phone call to a loved one, a conversation with a dear friend over a nice cup of tea or coffee, or even walking up to smell the stunning Converse roses, this is a moment which will help your physically, mentally, and spiritually, and at Converse. In the friends, the beautiful green quad, the sweet spring breezes, and the roses, you can find this sense of peace. And, if you can’t, I hope that this blog and some of these photographs will help guide you there!
God bless and always look for life’s positives!
