I’m currently battling a nasty cold, and resting so that I can get back to more important things in life like work or the first draft of my term paper due tomorrow. In any event, today is the anniversary of a day that really changed my life. After a year of blogging, I feel like it’s about time I share it because it is a huge part of what made me who I am today. Instead of a blog post, however, I’m actually going to share a video that’s near and dear to my heart.
Have you ever taken a class that seemed pointless but ended up changing your life more than you could imagine? For me, it happened to be an intro course that I actually considered dropping because of the final project that ended up being this video. That very first day of class as I sat staring at the syllabus in frustration, I’d have never imagined making a video about this let alone sharing with 30 people or the world now. It goes to show you how something unexpected and seemingly pointless can push you to do things you wouldn’t normally do, so without further ado, here it is.
It’s hard to believe it’s almost been 10 years now. I don’t think anything prepares you for losing a parent in that way especially at 14. It changed the way I see the world in so many ways. My prayers go out to anyone who’s currently going through a similar situation.
Rest in Peace, Dad. We love you.
