The Opposite of Loneliness


This graduation speech written by Marina Keegan is probably one of my favorite things I’ve ever read.   I think her speech is something all of us can relate to.  She was honest, funny, and inspiring with her words.   WARNING:  If you are the sentimental type or are feeling particularly emotional today, you might cry.  I did.  My favorite part is when she mentions staying at the table after the check has been paid, or when she reminds us that we are still so young; we think we have to have it all figured out, but we don’t need to know everything yet. Good luck to everyone with finishing your projects!




One thought to “The Opposite of Loneliness”

  1. I first read this piece last semester and I loved it. I have 2 years left until graduation, but I can relate to it!

    It’s haunting how she says “We’re so young. We’re so young. We’re twenty-two years old. We have so much time,” and she passes away. It shows us how time is really precious and to make the most of everything.

    I don’t know if you’ve read some of her other pieces, but I thought her outlook on the finance industry was interesting. . She definitely has a way with words.
