Ohio weather sucks.
Who wants to walk around cold, blue-ey, slushie-icky brown snow, nasty, gloomy and bleugh!
Or maybe I’m just complaining too much. Or not. But the weather really does blow. I can just see myself settling down somewhere in California after I graduate. Or not. Then again, that’s me setting a goal for myself which will eventually wind down to be not the best one for me.
Actually a lot of fellow students here may share the same plan as I do, as in having bright plans ahead in the future while meticulously trying to finish college. Livin’ like the best is yet to come. Extreme behaviors of such kind include the ones who rot their mind away in libraries studying till dusk, all in a namesake of not getting below an “A”. God forbid they get a B- in a pop quiz. I’m getting a notion that Fortune 500 companies never hire anyone with a GPA below 3.8.
Then there are some who seem to live like there would be no tomorrow. As in not caring a bit or none at all for classes. Same people look forward to the weekend’s binge drinking. College only come once, right? So why not have all the fun you can have? So come on! Livin’ la vida loca!
Seems to me that something is wrong in both mentalities. Most people are blindly preoccupied with a particular segment of their lifetime. Like thinking that college is the best time of their life, and those who itch away from their present situations and form visions of themselves living a perfect dream come true, somewhere, sometime, in the near future.
To those with these kind of attitudes, they are simply cheating themselves out of true happiness. Everytime is the best time of your life. It is in every moment where one can find opportunities and find valuable lessons life brings. The true joy of life is having a purpose to live for. What do you live for? A splendid career? A gazillion network of friends and social contacts? Recognition of some achievement? Having dreams is a good thing. In fact, I dream a lot, especially daydreaming. But dreams and success are not certain. Only One thing is.
Now Ohio weather isn’t really that bad anymore, heh…
…as long as I have my cup of marshmallow-loaded hot Swiss chocolate ::smile::.
