Ode to Kira and Adam

Advice for a graduate:

  • (1) Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years.
  • (2) Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
  • (3) You won't discover new lands unless you lose sight of the shore.
  • (4) You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself Any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go. (Dr. Seuss "Oh the Places You'll Go")
  • (5) The purpose of a liberal education is to make you philosophical enough to accept the fact that you will never make much money.
  • (6) Your families are extremely proud of you. You can't imagine the sense of relief they are experiencing. This would be a most opportune time to ask for money.

Congratulations Guys!

Love you!
The Howards

Thanks for making me smile. (especially the part about the money!) In my spare time (aka post thesis defense) I will post about graduation and my fabulous surprise. In the meantime, I appreciate you thinking of us. Encouragement is most welcome right now, especially when facing deadlines. :)
