Punch a higher floor

April 27, 2016 - 1:53pm
Click. Click. Each time I stepped up the stairs my right knee shouted out its existence. Sigh - I felt old. I refused to let that get me down, so the next day I hopped on my bike and rode 19 miles up and down hills, the wind whipping through my hair, and I felt young. That's how life is, at least for me. Some days you feel old and some days you feel young (or at least not so old). Then something happens and old and young come rushing at you and crash together and you're not quite sure how to feel. That happened to me last week. "Prince died," my coworker said. Crash. There it was. Two small words and all of a sudden I was young and old all at the same time. I felt old when I realized how long ago his poster adorned my bedroom wall. I felt even older when I realized there are students at MSU who were one year old when we resurrected "1999" to celebrate the millennium. Let that sink in for a minute. Then I felt young. My mind went back to dance parties and concerts with my friends. To listening to his music while I sat in my dorm room as a freshman trying to figure out what I was doing and where I was going. I could feel the uncertainty, nervous excitement and enthusiasm that youth brings. "We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life." At the time Prince wrote those lyrics, I could absolutely identify with them. I didn't know where life would lead me. I didn't know what I'd do, but I knew I needed to keep going. Heck, those lyrics still speak to me. Does anyone really know the path his or her life will take? But we know as Spartans that whatever life brings, we'll figure out a way to get through it. Spartans have never met a challenge they didn't like. We're tenacious that way.
