OPINION: Why students should step out of comfort zones and embrace adventure

This week, a man jumped out of a tiny metal container twenty-five miles above the surface of the earth. He fell at nearly 1,000 mph before being slowed by a thickening atmosphere and what appeared to be a very small parachute. Watching this live on my laptop made me wonder if I would ever do anything this cool or adventurous in my entire life. Realistically, the answer is no—I will probably not climb Everest or parachute from outer space. But this doesn’t mean we all can’t embrace having a sense of adventure in our own lives.
