An excerpt from my journal I kept while stuyding abroad:
“Run, jump, climb, skip, dance, just move and be and feel. Don’t become susceptible to the numbness that’s so characteristic of your generation. A computer screen cannot make you happy. Mindless scrolling and clicking and watching and consuming will leave you empty, unhealthy, and so tired. Do things that engage your mind and body, do things that challenge and excite you. You have to do hard things if you want to be a better person. Run a 5K, become a vegetarian, take a painting class, converse in a foreign language, invite someone to coffee. Live fully and wholly, because you’re only 20 once.”
Hello! My name is Emilee Sullivan. I am a fourth-year student at the University of Oklahoma planning to graduate with a Spanish degree this spring before continuing my education in pursuit of a Master’s degree in Library and Information Studies. My plans were a little shaken up last fall when left nursing school and decided to change my major a week before my senior year began, but I’ve finally found what I love and it is the most wonderful adventure.
