Life is an adventure

“It’s your life. Make what you want of it. Adventure awaits you, baby girl.” Those were the exact words my Mom said to me before I embarked on this crazy, wonderful journey here, studying at Rhodes University. Those words have been truthful to me every day. “Oh what a life ,” life is truly an adventure and I have realised that in my brief time at Rhodes. Both of my sisters studied at Rhodes and they made their time here, one to remember. However, I want to do more. I want to fulfill my time here with anything and everything I can. What better way to do that than to create a “Rhodes Bucket-list” and complete it with the ones who I cherish dearly. Reference to this article explains why I have a bucket list of my own and one to fulfill at Rhodes University that will create life long memories.

Why This Rhode

This is the first year of my studies. The first time I’ve had to live independently. University is a challenging time for many but it is also the perfect opportunity to explore who you are as a person with so many different avenues and routes being offered to you. I wanted my time at Rhodes University to be significant and character-defining. This article perfectly explains how I feel and what I want to achieve throughout my undergrad years, click here.

Choosing a path which you want to enter can sometimes be tricky, however, I’m a strong believer that it’s not about the destination but more importantly the route. I have chosen a rhode that is going to fulfill my adventurous and curios side. The first time coming to Grahamstown was when I arrived for my first week of university. None of my friends had chosen to study at the same institution as me, or anywhere near me for that matter. “I took the one less traveled by and it has made all the difference.”  If you don’t recognize this quote – give this poem a read.

The Unforeseen Trail

The planned path has always been academic. The gradual climb from grade to grade, primary to secondary to tertiary. Education has always been a full proof carpool to success. Yet, the Rhode each of us have embarked on entails a far greater education, that of blind passion. The bucket list we have each compiled grows personality, this an irreplaceable education. The park run I had embarked on with my fellow bloggers taught each of us to keep running, no matter the cramps, the dehydration, the aching calves. We ran until the route was completed. The accomplishment was not that we had finished the full 5km run- that was the reward, the accomplishment was completing it without needing recognition or approval from others. We had learnt self-belief and determination in a facet of education each of us have rarely explored. The following story of local runner and cancer patient Xolani Luvunu offers an inspirational voice to unflinching determination, click here to read more.

The Three Rhodents Along The Rhode

Life is about adventure. University is a chance to discover yourself. A blog dedicated to new experiences. This is a blog about our adventures while completing a bucket list we individually created

This is  picture of monument up on the hill, the place which we are all working to graduate. The end seems far, but we’ve come to the realization that it’s not about the destination but more about the journey. We want to pollute our undergrad days with new and challenging experiences and memories.
