Be Something

Just sat through another middle school graduation, which went about as you would expect.

The principal gave a speech about the "BE - ATTITUDES." Like, Be positive. Be considerate. Be creative. Seven things like that, the rest of which I can't recall because they all blur together for me. And then the inevitable eighth:
be yourself.
And if it so happens that you are not positive, creative, considerate, or whatever the other four things were, too bad.

Sigh.
