Drew Henningfield is a Student Spill Responder at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. This is his Spill Story.
Two years ago Spill did not exist at the University of La Crosse. In the Last four semesters a special group of hardworking individuals were able to start a functioning and productive club (almost from scratch) while having a lot of fun in the process.
Everyone I talk to these days seems to be stressed out about something whether its classes, friends, a new haircut, or what have you. The only thing I can say in response is, “Don’t worry!” Some stress is natural because it motivates people to fulfill their responsibilities, but too much stress is self-inhibiting because it keeps people from thinking clearly about a problem. The trouble is that many people get caught up in a few things that are not exactly as they would like and then they fret. It is very difficult to prioritize what is important and what is not sometimes but it is important to keep calm and remember that life will continue. Robert Frost once said, “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” And that is the truth.
