College – I’m NOT That Dad #4

Category: I'm Not that Dad

My older son is going off to The Berklee College of Music this fall. We had the occasion to attend the birthday and congratulations party for my son’s former babysitter, upon his completion of Law School and taking the Bar Exam. I video’d an interview with the two young men: one about to embark on his college journey and the other having just finished his own. It’s poignant and it’s shot “On Location!”

  • Ted Rubin

    Well done 🙂

      Thx Ted…looking forward to May 31!

    That’s a solid speech by the graduate.  Best of luck to yours who is going to school.  It does take time to figure out what the heck you want to do.

      UR so right Trey…I’m still trying to figure it out!

    Bruce, you’re amazing.. and Berklee is about as good as it gets. Well done Dad.

        I lived in Boston for 10 years and had friends who went there… GREAT school

          He’s going to have the TIME OF HIS LIFE! I’m so envious…and happy for him!

          • AmyMccTobin

            And Boston is just awesome.

            I wonder how he’ll handle the cold, having spent his whole life in SoCal!

    And you know what else? If every kid had a dad who cared enough to make a video like this we’d be a lot better off.

      Not every dad has an 18-year-old son who tells him that he’s worried about me (his dad) because I ski a bit recklessly for such “an old guy” – seriously, he lectured me tonight that he was worried about me!

      Right you are, Amy.

        Awww, gosh, gee…(said in my best Jimmy Stewart)! TYVM

    Bruce, that was fun. Looks like Josh has a good head on his shoulders and is embracing life. No doubt it is partially because he has the benefit of your wise counsel over the years.

    It’s quite possible that Arnie wasn’t entirely enthusiastic about being a part of this video production.

    thanks so much, Bruce, I enjoyed it–even if you NOT that Dad.

      Arnie is a teen and his mind was elsewhere, but thankfully Josh “carried” it! Arnie is actually very open with me.
