Today, I needed some perspective. I found it here.
If you’ve ever struggled with trusting the “just go with it, it’s all part of the process” aspects of college. Or maybe sometimes you have that sinking feeling or day to day blahs, wondering what “it” all means. Perhaps even if you’re simply trying to ride out the ebbs and flows of life, this video might help you feel a little more at ease.
This message helped me today, so I thought I’d share.
As always, feel free to pass it on.
Here is the full description:
“In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).
