GPOY And The Bulletin Board That Changed Your Life
I’d been known for being kind of funny in high school but I was also very shy. I never got involved in anything for fear of failing. As I started my first year in college I had decided I had a chance to reinvent myself and was looking for the opportunity to do…something. But what?
I went into the cafeteria at Millersville University and on this bulletin board was a handmade sign.
"So you think you’re funny? Prove it!"
It was inviting people to join the campus comedy group. It was the kind of thing I always wanted to be involved with but never had the courage to do. And the sign seemed to be speaking right to me.
I don’t know what would have happened if I hadn’t seen that sign. Or if it hadn’t “called me out” so directly. That day, and that bulletin board, changed the direction of my life.
It was nice to go back and say thank you.
Too bad it didn’t have a sign that said “Want to be successful? We have the secret!” I should have hung out in the Economics building.
