Day 28: Be More Than Your Possesions

When
March 28, 2013

While I am exceptionally proud to call myself a UWO student, according to Maclean's we've developed quite the rep; while we are considered to be some of the most intelligent individuals, we are also apparently some of the most materialistic & self absorbed ones as well. Ouch. So while I do firmly stand by 'don't judge a book by it's cover', it appears that more & more people now-a-days are allowing their belongs to define or, at the very least, speak for themselves. Problem is, I think that a $500 jacket, fancy car, or expensive accessories can only say so much about a person while the real individual ends up getting buried beneath a whole lot of excess ‘stuff’. Point being, not only will our possessions only be able to tell a small part of our story, there’s so much more to us than simply being consumers. We are worth more than being reduced to mass-produced goods and dollar signs and it's time to try to move beyond our what our possessions say about us.

Inappropriate?
