Enthusiastic Foolishness

“You will do foolish things,
but do them with enthusiasm.” ~ Collette

Boxers 1

Collette, a French novelist, once said that we will do foolish things. This is true. It’s a mathematical certainty. Some of us will do more than others; but then some of us will make more money, or have more children….it all evens out. It’s also true that college is when an inordinate amount of those foolish things will happen.

College is a special time in a person’s life. You get to explore your world and who you are within it in ways that your parents forbid when you were younger, and people frown upon when you’re older. For example, when the new Target store opened in North Seattle, and you felt adventurous. (That’s me on the right above)

Collette added that we should do them with enthusiasm. Now I ask you – what’s more enthusiastic than putting on novelty headbands?? (That’s me on the left)
