Why Do All the Black Kids Sit Together in the Cafeteria? by Dr. Beverly Daniel is not your typical summer reading but definitely a good read to get you ready for college.
I had to read The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle my senior year of college. It was a course on athletic coaching. It really opened my eyes to what I can achieve.
A blog I recommend. Its also a book The Book of Awesome Paperback
by Neil Pasricha. He also did a TED Talk.http://www.ted.com/playlists/158/graduation_now_what?utm_medium=on.ted.com-facebook-share&utm_source=facebook.com&awesm=on.ted.com_d0C0b&utm_content=awesm-publisher&utm_campaign=
Racing, running, rushing, you’re checking your watch and picturing your friend tapping their foot and rolling their eyes while waiting for you.
That’s why it’s great when you arrive hot, sweaty, and breathless just before they rush around the corner hot, sweaty, and breathless, too.
Now no one has to feel bad.
