Who RUNS the YARD? By Anthony Reeves
all know what this phrase means!! If anybody has been to college, you’re heard
this phrase before. You know what time
it is? Back in the day when you were
running around campus thinking you were cute and you were ALLLLL that, if
someone came on your campus, the first question is probably going to be, “who
RUNS the yard?”. Now, let’s get one
thing straight. We know who REALLY ran
the yard. That’s right. The Administration. LOL
beside that, “Who runs the yard” became synonymous with ‘THE BEST’. Come on now, you know what I’m talking about
when I say this. Remember those days
where you would only go to the Hottest Parties or the Best Events or the Hypest
Step Shows put on by CERTAIN Groups or Organizations? It was nothing personal. You just wanted to go to, be affiliated with,
and actively participate with THE BEST.
this phrase is NOT just for those persons who have gone to college. Whether you’ve been in college or not, we all
can remember a time when we would not do anything, go anywhere or be affiliated
with anything that we didn’t think was the BEST! Was that vain? Maybe. Superficial? Possibly! Self Centered? Definitely! But it was ok! You know why it was ok. At the end of the day, you knew that if you
wanted to ELEVATE your game, you had to be the BEST as well. As one of my older frat brothers once said,
“Be the BEST and the rest will follow!”.
There is NOTHING wrong with that at all.
Trust me, I can still REMEMBER going to an Alpha party in Gainesville
several years ago where the only people in the room were frat and 4 girls (and
of course, they were all frat brother’s girl friends) and right down the
street, the Kappas were throwing an ALL WORLD party (Ask me how long it took
the bros to shut down their party and go to the Kappa party?? Let’s say less than ’06 minutes!!!). IT’s ok.
We weren’t biting and weren’t hatin/ on the kappas. The brothers recognized that they had to
elevate their game.
amazing is as we get older, we LOSE that FIRE we had to only accept the
best. Somewhere along the way, we
started believing that it was ok to compromise what we want. We started believing that “it’s alright if it
is just OK”. Now, don’t get me
wrong. You still affiliate with SOME
things that are High Quality or the BEST.
However, you’re not moving on those things with the FIRE you had back in
the day. Come on now, you know what I’m talking
about. Remember the day that if SOMEONE
wasn’t having a party or SOMETHING wasn’t jumping off, you would stay home or
spend your money on something else??
That’s right! You had a REALLY high STANDARD and you were not about to
compromise on it.
saying you’ve gone soft? No, not at
all. On the contrary, I’m saying that
you still have that FIRE within you!
Remember that you are STILL the BEST and you still demand and should
COMMAND the best! Back in the day, you
wouldn’t settle for anything less and make sure you don’t settle for it NOW!
