So earlier in the week I gave one of my senior classes an excerpt of Dr. Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. I know you all heard of him; innovative man who turned the virtual world into reality and died last year at 47 years old. He shares some amazing things in his speech. I seemed to get more out of it than the kids. That happens sometimes. Information that I hope the would make a connection to goes right over their heads. Some days I seriously wonder what the ???? I was thinking deciding to become a teacher. But anyway, back to the speech! He shared one thing that really hit me dead between the eyes...

"Stop listening at what he says and start looking at he does"

Wow. After he said that I think I stopped right then and there listening to the speech. Seriously I slowed tuned everyone out and thought about his actions. Not Dr. Pausch's but my SO. It was like my mind shifted into reflective mode and began to flip through it all.

It made me wonder if he was the one for me. If he is what I want. I mean I know everyone is not perfect and we all got work to do. But if we can't get it right and be on the same level right now, then what the hell are we doing?

I don't wanna waste time; it's one aspect of life you can never get back. I don't know if he is really want I desire for the rest of my life...


  1. Awww Dr. Pausch, another great fellow baltimorean:) Anyway, I think that what your experiencing is perfect for your age. When I was your age I felt the same way about relationships. I think it's healthy to question your feelings at this stage in your life. You are a smart and intelligent young woman, I am sure you will after evaluating things will make a decision that is right for you. Just my 2 cents anyway...

  2. I am going through this right now. I am trying to make sure that the one I am with is my one for life. I can't have a repeat of my took me ten years to get out even when I realized he wasn't the one after one.
    I don't have ten years to give away.

    Plus, I think that is what we all should do. . think hard before we give away too much.
