Student Spotlight: Will Hall ’19
Do you have any advice for other people? Don’t be afraid to prioritize yourself above other things once in a while.
Sometimes people get too involved with schoolwork or (for some seniors) college applications, and I think you shouldn’t be afraid of taking breaks and enjoying yourself every now and then. Live a little.
If you won $10 million, what would you do? I would probably live like an average upper-middle class person for the rest of my life, only without a job (because I would already have the money). First thing I’d do is get settled in a comfy yet afordable house, then start hobby hunting for something fun and uncostly to do. No need to burn the cash on mansions and lavish activities, then go broke a couple months later.
Would you rather be liked or respected? Personally, I’d rather be liked. Somebody who respects you without liking you is an acquaintance at best, while someone who likes you without respecting you is just a rowdy friend. And I’d rather be around genuine friends than polite strangers.
