I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of their Spring 13 semester. I certainly am. This last week in class we watched a video featuring Fareed Zakaria. He spoke eloquently about the reasons why our generation and country basically is the best. Kinda got me pumped about life you guys.
We also discussed the upcoming events for this semester and...look out people. Lots of events. Lots of fun. Coming at ya. You can't stop it.
- RSU's Got Talent is already on the bulletin. Save the evening of March 12. It will be a night to remember. Unless you somehow acquire amnesia. Then it would be a night to forget.
- March 5 is another date to save. We will be watching some rubbish dumb basketball game or something...Sike. Totally kidding. We are going to watch the best basketball team to grace God's green earth. The Oklahoma City Thunder will be playing the Los Angeles Lakers in OKC, and we are going to see it. We will be leaving at 5:00 PM and returning around 1:00 AM.
- And yet another cool fantastic event. We are traveling to Eureka Springs April 19-21. We will be exploring the historic city in all her glory.
A reminder! People please go visit with Dr. Taylor before the February 6th. This applies to me as well. Feel free to shame me in public for my hypocrisy. I'll even shame myself look.
Another reminder. Paragraphs are due this Wednesday upon arrival to class. Let's see if we can get everyone single member there to turn them in. It will seriously take a few moments to get this done and I'm sure it would be well appreciated. Challenge mode!
I wanted to include some of the advice from the guide for living in 2013 we received in our packet.
Drink plenty of water...you will be amazing how much better this makes you feel.
Play more games...unless you already play a lot of games. Then disregard this point.
Don't have negative thoughts on things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
Don't overdo. Keep your limits.
Smile and laugh more.
You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Those are just a few that stuck out to me. The whole list is fantastic. Hang it up on your wall. Or maybe in your shower in a plastic bag. Or on the ceiling above your bed. I think mine is going on my door.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic semester already. As always, don't be afraid to come talk to me. I am almost always available to talk or give advice or maybe even provide comic relief in a stressful time.
I'll see you this Wednesday ladies and gentlemen!
