People lose sight of their aspirations far too often. And even if they donâ€™t, life has a funny way of changing dreams into shells of their former selves.
Instead of seeing the Great Wall of China or saving a life, many people might just be hoping to get a paid summer internship or be able to pay for all of their car repairs.
But, with a little help from the members of MTVâ€™s show â€œThe Buried Life,â€ CSU students hopefully got a refresher course Tuesday in the importance of following your dreams.
The four cast members spoke in the main ballroom yesterday as part of the Verizon Wireless â€œWhat do you want to do before you graduateâ€ contest, which involved students posting photos to the competitionâ€™s website with captions detailing something they wanted to do before the end of their college career.
And, while the â€œBuried Lifeâ€ guys will help one lucky student get their wish granted, we hope their campus stop will affect more people than just the contest winner. Think about it â€“â€“ these guys started off in a garage brainstorming their bucket list.
Now, theyâ€™re traveling the country crossing off goals while also helping strangers achieve theirs. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us.
Follow in their shadow. Do something youâ€™ve always wanted. Never seen the ocean? Hop in your car and drive to the coast. Are you still in love with that girl from your freshman biology class? Shoot her a text.
Donâ€™t grow old without ever enjoying your youth. Take that risk, live your life and always remember to keep dreaming.
