Look Up—Dig and Discover on the Quad
If you peek around the corner from the main entrance to Rosenwald Hall, you will find this fine bit of detail that offers up a command and an invitation: “Dig and Discover.” In the warmer climes of a Chicago summer it can be covered with ivy, but most of the time, it’s just out there in plain sight. 

But one must pause and look closely. What’s that? A pair of nautiluses and a fine leather satchel. What’s inside this satchel? Ah, you must bring your own creativity, your own imagination, your own spirit of wonder. I know you have some. After all, you’re at the University of Chicago, a place full of meditative minds and curious folk.

I don’t want to create films as a catharsis. I want to create films through which children can see and experience something new. I want to make that one unforgettable film in everyone’s childhood, something they can enjoy for at least 30 years. - Hayao Miyazaki

Play more games.
Read more books than you did in 2011.
Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
Sleep for 7 hours.
Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.
Personality:
Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
Dream more while you are awake.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

Do the right thing!
Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
The best is yet to come.
Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

families of Middle-earth  elrond & aragorn

But Aragorn was only two years old when Arathorn went riding against the Orcs with the sons of Elrond, and he was slain by an orc-arrow that pierced his eye; and so he proved indeed shortlived for one of his race, being but sixty years old when he fell. Then Aragorn, being now the Heir of Isildur, was taken with his mother to dwell in the house of Elrond; and Elrond took the place of his father and came to love him as a son of his own
