Shannon Kaiser – travel writer, inspirational author, motivational speaker
Sometimes here at SPP, we judge a book by it’s cover…literally. We will see the most recent NY Times Bestseller and we fawn over the author. The more designations, recommendations, and accolations (hey, it’s a word in Urban Dictionary) a person has, the more insight they must have into the world of knowledge. Well, this week we are standing up for those that hold a 4.0 GPA from the most prestigious institution there is, Real World University (RWU). Before you dismiss the legitimacy of Real World University, let me give you a few statistics:
- RWU is the most difficult university to get into…ever….period. As a matter of fact, only 1 in 400 trillion will be allowed to attend.
- The cost of attending RWU is exponentially more than any other university. As a matter of fact, if you attend RWU in the United States, your parents will shell out approximately ONE MILLION DOLLARS for your freshman year tuition. Usually they make you cover the bill after that.
- The average student of RWU will attend 588,672 hours of instruction!
As you can see, Real World University is only for the truly amazing. So congratulations, you made it! However, as I just mentioned, it’s expensive, it’s difficult, and it’s the longest thing you’ll ever do – so you might as well make the best of it. But how? It’s a question we all ask ourselves. How do we make our time here on Earth (you got the metaphor of RWU…right?) the best and most meaningful we can? You get a damn good guidance counselor, that’s how. And for that reason we bring you this week’s guest, your guidance counselor for 30 minutes, Shannon Kaiser.
