May we all

May we all

I have a new song stuck in my head and my co-workers are probably tired of me humming the tune. Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw partnered to make the version that keeps running through my brain. I’m adding a few stanzas to speak to time spent on the University of Illinois campus. (Disclaimer – these do not follow the tune, nor the format of the writing. I will never claim to be a musician.)

May we all:

  • Feel the spring breeze on our face while sitting on the quad.
  • Experience cheering on an Illini athletic team.
  • Know the connection with an instructor that goes beyond lectures and tests.
  • Expand our network and interactions to many types of people.
  • Leave the University of Illinois better than we found it!

Now, back to the professionals.

May we all do a little bit better than the first time
Learn a little something from the worst times
Get a little stronger from the hurt times

May we all…..

Throwback Thursday – I have fun memories of watching the Marching Illini perform at the Bowl in December 1999. Illini athletic events are some of my favorite experiences.
