Hey 90's kids! Remember that bizarre graduation song from that started with the creepy voice of man that says "Wear Sunscreen"? That song was created by Baz Lurman and filled with small bits of advice about life set to music. Some of it, he says you'll look back at yourself 20 years later, and have certain thoughts. We wondered if this advice holds up. And if you look back, was he right?
Kurt Vonnegut MIT Commencement Address | aktywnedzieciaki.info
Mary does a great job of being serious, but also funny. She is informative, but not boring. She gives life advice without being preachy. She jokes up front that her only statement with science behind it is to wear sunscreen.
Kurt Vonnegut may be dead but he still gives good advice to graduates
Do you remember what the speaker said at your graduation ceremony? Maybe you were so excited that it was all a blur. Or maybe you tuned out, assuming it would just be the standard, boring stuff. Or… maybe you were truly inspired.
Mary Schmich 's column "Advice, like youth, probably just wasted on the young" was published in the Chicago Tribune on June 1, In the speech she insistently recommends the wearing of sunscreen , and dispenses other advice and warnings which are intended to help people live a happier life and avoid common frustrations. She later explained that the inspiration came from seeing a young woman sunbathing , and hoping that she was wearing sunscreen, unlike what Schmich herself did at that age. The essay soon became the subject of an urban legend which claimed it was an MIT commencement speech given by author Kurt Vonnegut.
