A Late Night Cup of Maxwell’s….
What a Monday night…up at around 2 o’clock in the morning and well I decided to put my thoughts down on paper (on screen). Tonight I realized that there is something important that people should realize when they are in college. College is a melting pot of ideologies and inquiry and firendships and fun. People are intrigued by the impossible and the what could-be; people come to see how, in what ways things can inspire such a fantastic glimmering of collaborative phantasmagorical-ness!
When they are inspired and driven they find ways to create and empower one another to do things that are not seen or heard of. This truly is a melting pot of wondrous and sometimes at moments magical happenings. The things we as students and even the faculty, staff and administrators come together to create is just poetic. Now mostly because this is late I am on a somewhat metaphorical splurge if you will, however, it does not delineate from the overall sensation that what we make here in our time, in our experiences is truly….unique.
I have used this phrase lately in a lot of the projects and people I’ve worked with, “Teach thy tongue to say ‘I don’t know’ and thou shalt progress“, This seems to be almost obvious, what we don’t know we seek out and find answers to solve, is this not true? So what then, does this have to do with our experience here in college? Does it matter that I don’t really know someone or something about a certain group or organization? Well, its more than a simple ‘I don’t know’, its more of what is the purpose of these experiences and why they are important. When I am ignorant of an experience or some kind of situational happening, its only natural at first to question. Its that moment once we figure out what we are in fact questioning that it begins to progress our experience.
I don’t suspect to have many more late night metaphorical thought rants, but who knows really? Its always a good thing to continue to learn no matter what time of day (or night) it is!
