Ah, here I am

Every once in a while I am newly surprised to find myself at what is considered the best university in the world. Everything is so normal, so everyday. There's still disappointment with the means of education, the famous names end up being people not unlike myself, and there are still the fears and struggles when it comes to employment. This place which many dream of is not always some sort of heaven as it is imagined. At the same time, this realization prompts me to a little perspective. In times of frustration and disappointment, it is still a privilege to be here, and an opportunity to take hold of that which is offered.

  1. UM is lucky #13! :P
    ...but the class of 2011 has to have Rick Snyder as their graduation speaker. Glad I am not graduating this year.
    (Snyder = the new Michigan governor, whom everyone hates, and who wants to take away the film incentives)
