A little inspiration for advisory today!

3 As of Awesome (18 minute video)   (Here is a link to the video)

Please share this Intro to Video:
Neil Pasricha uses the power of blogging to spread a little optimism each day about the awesome things that make life worth living.
Neil started his blog 1000 Awesome Things, as a small reminder — in a world of rising sea levels, global conflict, and a troubled economy — of the free, easy little joys that make life sweet.

Follow up/Discussion activities

1. With a partner or as a whole group:
    What are the little things in life that make you happy?  (Advisor could start by sharing a few things)
    Come up with a list on the board.

2. If students are interested you may share some from Neil's list:
The top 1000 things   from Neil Pesricha's Blog

3.  A thought with which to walk out the door:
In the video, Rosie Greer tapped into his deep authentic self and pursued a passion despite ridicule from others.  
What about you?  Is there a passion you might not be pursuing because of fear of what others might think?

Research a College! (PLP) activity

Students use their laptop to look up a college and complete the chart.

If time, ask students to report out to the group. Did anything surprise them about the school?
What interests them most about the school they researched? What did they not like?
