Oh the Places You’ll Go!

It has been a whirlwind adventure this past month for both Melody & I. We were both moving schools and apartments and dealing with the end of the year craziness.  Also, Melody was busy graduating from graduate school all at the same time! So unfortunately we needed to take a break from our blogging, but now that we are on vacation and stateside, I’m finding some time to blog again!

So first thing is first, congratulations to Melody, Dyanne, Semy and their Simpson University Korea Cohort on their master’s degre! As Melody mentioned before here, she has been working hard on getting her master’s degree in education while teaching full-time here in Korea.  I was honored to attend her graduation here.

In honor of your graduation, a few words of wisdom from Dr. Seuss!

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

by Dr. Seuss

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go…

On and on you will hike
and I know you’ll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.

You’ll get mixed up, of course,
as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up
with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact
and remember that Life’s
a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)


be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!
