“Procrastination is opportunity's assassin.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's just my opinion, of course, but I think we'd all have far fewer regrets in life if we took to heart the advice in this song. I know for a fact that I myself have a long litany of things I wish I had said or done before it was everlastingly too late.
