The Class of 2004

My brother just graduated from Lincoln High School, on Thursday.  He was the welcome speaker and had this to say about achievement:

Achievement is not about finding something you never had; it’s about finding something you always had.

Sure did sound nice, but when I think about it, I totally don’t buy that. I mean isn’t achievement an acknowledgement from the outside? Oh well.

Congrats to him.
I don’t mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved
She will be loved

Insightful Insight-“A lot of the random conversations people used to strike up while waiting in a public place are being replaced with mobile [phone] calls. Rather than try to chat with the stranger on the next bar stool, today’s youth would rather pass the time talking to someone familiar via phone.” Anthony Townsend, COO of Cloud Networks and cofounder of NYCwireless when asked about how “the glut of communications devices affecting communication.” (taken from an article in the April 2003 edition of Wired Magazine)

  1. Hmm…the definition is debatable…I remember from 2001-2002 Acadec one philosopher believed that our life’s work is programmed within us, and that the artist will never reach self-fulfillment until she taps into her artistic capabilities and becomes an artist. Perhaps achievement as your brother sees it is reaching a place that was already inside you, or becoming the person you were meant to become?
    I always liked that philosophy; it seems beautiful to me =)
    Congratualations to your brother, the Acadec powerhouse! I am always happy for my Acadec brethren (except my Acadec rivals). Where is he going to college?
    I really like the Maroon 5 lyric; it’s gorgeous.
    Miss you =)
