Quick Hit: NOT Awesome

One of my students – a senior who has never really been engaged in our class – told me today that it’s a wonder anyone ever does anything.  After all, he explained, everyone’s going to die, anyway, right?  So, why bother?

Why, indeed.

  5. That is a great sign of youth and the apathy that comes with youth — for him, and ZERO passion for making the most out of every opportunity; I mean, if we did not do these things life would be as he says. I prefer to have friends, like you — Chilli. No wonder he said little in class.
