This Saturday, May 18, 2013 is Graduation Day here at CIM (it’s also the day Mt. Helens erupted in 1980, a day that will “live in infamy” in this Pacific Northwest native’s mind, but I digress). Beyond this date, many will enter The Real Post-College World for the first time. Armed with hard-won degrees and well-wisher’s platitudes, graduates will march into the world beyond CIM’s nurturing walls in a few short days. In preparation for what is to come, take 10 minutes to watch this video modeled on a David Foster Wallace speech made in 2005 for the graduates of Kenyon College. You’ll be glad you did.
Best of luck to all of you!
