Could you imagine standing for nearly 13 hours. Just last week, we saw Senator Rand Paul (R) conduct an old school filibuster. Those of you who are in or who have already taken a government class know that a filibuster is simply one big speech designed to prevent certain legislation from becoming law. The catch is that the person doing the filibuster has to stand while they are speaking. Their only break comes if someone asks a question. Senator Paul definitely believed in what he was standing up for. He would have to in order to make that sacrifice with his body.
As a student, you have to do the same thing. No, you don’t have to stand up talking on and on for hours, but you do have to show a level of commitment to your education. Your commitment requires you to be use your planner, turn in your work on time and study. Like Rand Paul, you have to be all in. It’s one thing to say that you are all in, but proving it through actions is entirely different.
