Kindness and Flat Out Respect


By: Genevieve Scholl

Hey readers! Just wanted to talk to you today a little about the two elements of a good life (as I like to call them).

First, comes kindness. We all know what it means to be kind, but we don’t always practice it. Kindness should be like a reflex. Be kind to others and you will get kindness right back. I know this isn’t always the case, but for the most part it works. Now, I am not going to point out names or faces or anything, but other the last few days I have experienced quite a few moments where this sort of thing just doesn’t happen. From talking during class to just not caring one little bit about others. Why? I mean, is it really so hard just to be kind to others when they deserve it. We’re adults aren’t we?

Along with kindness, comes respect. As Aretha put it, R E S P E C T! “All I’m asking, is for a little respect.” That’s all I’m asking for from everyone. Respect everyone and their wishes. Like when you are asked to stop talking in class, do it. Why do we have to be a campus that feels like high school all over again?

I know you are all probably getting sick of listening to my complaints, but I feel (as adults) that we should tell each other these things and try to make our college experience a far better and more pleasant time.

But, I am not a total prude, so here’s a cookie on me…

Sorry if you just tried to lick the screen and tasted nothing… 🙂
