Mount Union senior Elise Chojnacki shares her first-person perspective of what it's like to be a part of the Face your Fear Project, which helps students with a professed fear of roller coasters apply techniques to battle anxiety and fear and tackle the rides at Cedar Point.
Great job Kevin! Glad to see you bringing this event back after the pandemic hiatus.
Thanks, Kyle, and thanks to Walt for sharing it. That forced year off happened after the 10th anniversary...which was in and of itself a big milestone, but made even more special as Walt agreed to come out and chronicle the experience.
The world of Academia (meaning, teaching college) is a weird place to be right now, with tons of financial restrictions and belts tightening for obvious reasons, and even 4 weeks before the trip (even though my students were already putting in the behind-the-scenes work) I still didn't know if it was going to be approved.
Long story short, I had sadly and quietly reserved myself to the possibility that those 10 years would be all she wrote for this project, which led to an unexpected downward slope into a dysthymic mood state for a really long time. If you know what that means, you know how much it sucks.
This helped a lot.
Thanks again, Walt.Last edited by Kevinj, Saturday, November 6, 2021 9:12 PM
