Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a great parents weekend. Whether that meant going to the football game, running necessary dorm room errands or just eating off campus- all of which were a part of my weekend- I hope you had relaxing few days.
After my parents left, I returned to my dorm and did the all too exciting chore of laundry. To entertain myself while doing so, I turned on the television to the all too perfect movie, Dead Poets Society. It was incredibly ironic that this movie would be on after my parents left as it is a movie they love but, as a kid, I hated. (If you haven’t seen it, it has a total plot twist ending that 10 year-old Liz wasn’t expecting. That’s all I’ll say so I don’t ruin it.) Anyway, I left it on while I was cleaning and not too long after, this scene came on. It is a truly inspiring scene in which Robin Williams’ character reminds us that life is short and we need to make the most of every minute.
So this week- I challenge you to seize the day. No matter what that may be- if its talking to someone new, living in the moment (as corny as that sounds) or just doing something that makes you happy, carpe diem. And most importantly-“make your life extraordinary”.
