My commencement speech video

One thing that surprised me in the short time since I’ve been able to go out on the weekends was how many students I didn’t know came up and told me that they liked my commencement speech. I mean of course on graduation day everyone’s going to tell you “good job on the speech”, but to know that someone liked it so much as to approach me a month later with a compliment—now that means something. I really just tried to be sincere and avoid the typical BS, so it’s so satisfying to know that other people appreciated it too.

And not that it’s bad being “that football player”, but it felt pretty darn good to—even if just for a moment—be “that guy who gave the good graduation speech”.
