It is my birthday today – and while this isn’t a personal blog – it is still my birthday today…
So without further adieu – here are 25 thoughts for my 25th birthday – mostly related to Community College Success ;)
- Effort requires continuity.
- The suggestion of cutting community college funding is counterproductive to our society’s progress.
- Two hours in a plane seem much shorter than two hours in a car.
- Goals are always better when written down.
- Everything worth doing requires you to keep doing it.
- Mentors in my life have taught me that overnight success takes years to cultivate.
- Seeing cc students succeed literally gives me the mental strength to write.
- An unbelievable number of visitors come to this blog looking for backpacks.
- Amazingly successful people will answer you if you ask.
- Doors close on some things, but the locks aren’t always permanent.
- If I had the $ to give away my book to all 12.5 million current cc students for free, I honestly would.
- The Internet often lends itself to negativity – I will always be positive.
- There are too many stories of amazing students that go untold –my goal is to share those stories.
- Learning should never stop – everyone should go to grad school – it has been an amazing experience.
- If you don’t read nonfiction books on a regular basis, you should.
- Five years ago I was in Nashville at PTK on my birthday. I am in Nashville for PTK again today. Life apparently does rotate in circles.
- Never lose sight of your original goal when beginning a venture.
- Postmodern humor on TV can be a drag – there was something to the optimism of TGIF.
- First impressions are welcome mats.
- Waking up at 5:30 AM isn’t as hard when you have a big goal.
- Community college students are more intelligent than people realize.
- You make my life better.
- The expression “necessary evil” literally means wearing high heels.
- I constantly wonder what direction social networking will take next – embarrassingly, my AIM name was ShortnSweet22345.
- This last year has been the hardest and greatest of my adult life - thanks for being a part of it!
