Throughout reading “Commencement Speech, Kenyon College”, I found this short story very inspiring to read as I found myself doing more research for this essay because I was so interested in it. Wallace was very reluctant to give this speech because he wasn’t sure he was ready to talk in front of 400 graduates and what if what he had to say was ordinary not something that would stick with all these students the rest of their lives.

I have taken multiple Science classes at American River College. I attended college in San Francisco but due to the college accreditation issues I transferred to Sacramento City College to be closer to my family. Sacramento is my hometown and I am slowly learning to appreciate the small town of Sacramento and its growing community. Sacramento is not my city of choice but I am starting to love more and more of it as I see people from all over relocate and the city growing with new projects like the Arena. I love my morning commute that allows me to see construction workers fixing the steel piping against the backdrop of the blue sky.
