Ladies and Gentlemen of the Class of 2013,
Wear Sunscreen… Is in the top 10 of TheMotivator’s most inspirational things ever… No seriously, I periodically look at the video, read the original poem by Mary Schmich, and often quote the little jewels that I discover/ed in the lyrics.
“Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. ”
“Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts. Don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours.”
“Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.”
There is a jewel in just about every line. Trust me. I know stuff 🙂
Or have a listen or read the poem, but trust me on the sunscreen.
THE ORIGINAL MUSIC VIDEO
Great Music video from the nineties !
The lyrics are taken from a famous essay — written in 1997 by Mary Schmich, a columnist with the Chicago Tribune — which gives some amazing advice for life, thoroughly recommend everyone to watch this ! enjoy !
This is the original tune, and video as seen on MTV, made by Baz Luhrmann the film director.
