I have always been a dreamer, but I never had a dream; I never had a top-choice college, I never had a “what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up” moment, I have never figured out my ideal relationship. But Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous words always make me want to have a dream; Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words make me want to dream beyond the trivialities of school, occupation, and partner and dream a dream that will “exalt valleys,” “make hills and mountains low,” “make rough places plain,” and “make crooked places straight.” On this day when we remember a man who died for his dreams, I wonder, do you have a dream?
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
