4 Shattuck Boys Train in Germany
In a school full of overachievers like ours, we pride ourselves on putting our noses to the grind stone and pumping out projects, wins, successful performances, and A’s. We are efficient, focused, and unstoppable. In the midst of all this success however, we often don’t have time to think and imagine. “Wait,” you say, “I know the birthdays of every influential leader involved in the cold war, AND I can take the derivative of pi. I think all the time, you assuming narc-weasel!” Yes. You can, and do, rattle off facts and figures with the best of them, but I’m not referring to GPA’s or ACT scores. Here’s what I want to know: When was the last time you asked yourself “What if?”…. What if I made a bunch of egg sculptures for absolutely no reason at all? What If I made a movie about a girl getting stalked by a Garden Gnome? What if I made my own Harlem Shake video, but only used stop motion photography? And made the costumes in the fashion design studio? And recorded original lyrics in the music recording stu- but I digress. Seriously though, when was the last time you even had *time* to ask yourself ridiculous questions? (For those of you Shattuck students who don’t know what this foreign concept of free time is, I’ll clue you in. Free time is a chunk of time in which you DON’T have a practice, class, meeting, or rehearsal to go to). Too frequently, we deny ourselves the freedom of absurdity. We tell ourselves not to waste time and energy on digressions and in doing so lose our ability to wonder. Melodramatic as it may sound, life as we know it would not exist without the ingenuity of individuals who dared to ask the indulgent question, “What if?” In honor of the nutcases who came up with such gems as the Magic Bullet, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and microwaveable steak dinners, I have a challenge for you as follows. Your assignment- Challenge yourself to have one strange thought or idea a day. The weirder the better. Share it. Challenge somebody else to think creatively *and* hold yourself accountable. Two objectives in one! Try it. Even the busiest schedule can be accommodated when you take things one step at a time and no one says you’re required to present 300 pages, laminated and bound, to the school board. The bottom line is, let yourself be impulsive. Follow your creative instincts in search of the project that sticks… (Think about it…can you imagine life without Segways?)
