|The Smiles of Champions|
After all the incitement, I headed over to Salomon Hall to participate in one of Brown's scheduled activities. Tonight's activity was a movie night. Originally the movie was Sherlock Holmes but at the last minute they changed the movie to The Lorax which I did not mind at all. The Lorax is about a town where everything is fake and plastic. The main character sets out on a journey to bring trees back to his home. On his way he runs in to challenges but he keeps going. Eventually he is successful and the movie ends with a quote about taking initiative.
I found it pretty interesting that the movie we watched related so much to what I have been learning during my time on the East Coast. Life isn't just about skating by. If you want something you have to go for it. I owe a lot of the lessons I've learned to the ILC because it has taught me to strive for the best. Everything in life is up to you, and you have to be willing to take the chances.
Tomorrow we head off to Boston for another day of exploring and fun with the wonderful people I've met at Summer@Brown and I absolutely cannot wait.
