Past Headliners for August 2001
Have you ever wondered what really shapes our reality? I mean, do we have a destiny, or are we just all floating around? That's one question that has challenged philosophers and common folk alike for thousands of years. Will we ever know the answer? Probably not in this lifetime anyway. As for me, I couldn't answer that question, but if I had to I guess I'd have to agree with Forest Gump: "maybe it's both.. both are happening." Sometimes things happen that make no sense, but other things happen that just appear to be too coincidental not to have been planned. I think that perhaps what happens to us is not always as important as how we respond to it. The wisdom of the cliche "Today is the first day of the rest of your life", though worn out, is still very true. The fact is this: we are always at a crossroads in our lives. Granted sometimes it is more obvious than others, but what we decide in simple everyday situations (ex: will I try to beat that yellow light, will I wave at someone I know) can indeed have reprocussions that can be felt for years. The bottom line is this: we do have a destiny. As to whether or not we decide what it is ourselves, or whether a higher power does it for us is a mystery. Perhaps the answer truly lies somewhere between those two extremes.
I'm making a weird update, I know, but I just managed to get everything fixed up yesterday on this computer. Thanks for understanding. I will be working the archives section soon. I promise to try to add more next week!
I'm nervous and excited at the same time about moving to CU (which occurs this Fri, to be exact). I guess doubts are only natural though. I'm still planning to major in history, with a minor in entertainment writing (I've been researching the whole thing, but haven't found out what the official name of the major is). No word yet on how this will effect CU.
But that's a wrap for this week. Vote in my poll!
I guess I shall sign out for this week. Have an outstanding week, and keep cool!
Note: This article ran for almost the entire month of August, as did the Welcome to Lebanon sign.
