I miss the days of living on campus (or near one) where you get to see little left of center things that just make up college life.
I like the would be liberal-bent of a campus that lets you at least pretend your ideals are achievable, even though you're striving for a job that pays more than the rent, all your beer and vinyl. You say you'd rather be helping the under-served, when in reality you're just becoming a corporate tool.
But there are days I'd really like the chuck it all and go do good....or pretend-good. Like this guy. I think it's a guy. I assume it is. No woman would really live in this thing - would they?
I don't really know what his objectives are, or how he's measuring success or an ROI. I don't know what is operational or expense budgets are. I have not seen a prospectus or business plan or any quarterly updates on how this kindness has spread, or not.
Let's not even talk about his productivity and how close he is to achieving that One Million goal mark. I mean - what is the strategic plan here?
I've lost my way, I fear. That's how I feel some days....like today...and yesterday.....and last week.
Maybe it would be nice to travel in a bus, campus to campus and spread the word of good deeds and that there is more to life than making your mortgage and car payments.
Of course, it would have to come with medical, dental and vision.....
