Christian Brothers’ students discuss their most desired destinations. Where will their happy endings be?
A great deal of our lives is spent trying to figure out our future. We aspire to achieve that perfect, happy ending. A large part of that ending comes with where we are planning to live.
Christian Brothers’ students have a variety of dream destinations.
Rosey Kenshol (‘15) finds Seattle to be an appealing haven. “I just like the culture. It has a really good music scene.”
A serene place, Seattle does not have a reputation for being wild.
“I think it would be really peaceful and quiet,” the junior said.
With tranquil surroundings, reflection and introspection come more naturally. The rain is a helpful additive for deep inner thoughts and contemplation.
“I think that since it’s so far away from home, I’d be able to find out more about myself,” Rosey articulated.
Marcela Cuomo (‘15) has a very different city in mind for her future. She finds New York City to be her place of attraction. She desires large cities because she wants “to be able to walk around and experience new things.”
“I want to experience the urban culture and see the differences in New York City from Sacramento,” she explained.
New York City is a destination that offers so many different opportunities for all kinds of dreams.
“I really want to go to New York City to see or even be in a Broadway show. They are amazing,” she said thoughtfully.
Pursuing life in different regions allows people to grow and learn about how different cultures function by giving them a broader perspective on world relations. Exposure to different ways of life, new cultures, and diverse atmospheres widens a person’s horizons. The more places people travel too, the more worldly they become and the more they appreciate cultures.
Cities that are just miles apart are so different in the lifestyles that people lead within them. People that expose themselves to varying cultures, have more respect and appreciation for the world around them.
“I think that New York City will really teach me to be more mature and adult,” Marcela concluded.
For Elizabeth Dewey (‘15), Camden, England is her sanctum. She wants to reside there “because it is not America, it’s far away, and it’s a different culture.”
“I need a place that is calm, but interesting at the same time,” she adds.
Dewey finds Camden intriguing, because it has people there “who like the same music as [her] and who are like minded.”
She wants a place that has people with similar interests as her, and Camden is that perfect location.
“I’d probably stay there for the rest of my life and find the person I would want to marry,” she said.
She appreciates artistic people, who are not afraid to express themselves in different forms.
“Camden has the merchandise that I like and it’s hard to find that in many places,” Dewey expressed.
It’s a great place for her because it not only provides her with a community of like-minded people, but it can help her to express herself as well.
“It puts you in an environment to learn because you are comfortable,” she explains. “If you feel safe, you can grow.”
Camden is her perfect haven.
Whether we simply dream of these places or we have actually been there, we all have our perfect place.
