Chapstick Fanatic

oh my goodness. this made me cry.

i am 25 years old, so a few years removed from college. i did everything right – i chose a solid degree and graduated a semester early to stop incurring student loans. but it is still so easy to get into the "what-ifs" and feel like you can't do something now because of something you didn't do in the past. she has absolutely inspired me – i am young and still have time. it is so unfortunate that she will not.

thanks for sharing and reminding me that i still have time to live out my dreams.



I am a member of the college class of 2012 and I am in tears. I went to a tiny LAC and her piece means SO much to me right now.

I absolutely loved this piece. I think it's something we can all relate to at some time or another. There's a quote by Tommy Douglas that I feel captures the sentiment of her article perfectly: "courage, my friends; 'tis not too late to build a better world." In my opinion, nothing was ever truer.
