There is something mysterious about being on campus when few other souls are braving the heat with you. There is something mysterious about focusing on one soul class in a “let’s get it done” mentality. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’d something new and fresh. Something fun. Something different. And I like it!
I feel accomplished in defying the odds of taking summer classes. I feel I have purpose for these long summer hours. I feel I have a tangible task before me that will be accomplished. It’s fun. I must admit. This nerd really thinks it’s fun!
I like having only one class to focus on. I like having a challenge of choosing to do my homework when I want most to “waste time”. I enjoy the simplicity of only balancing a few main things that are time and energy consumers. And honestly… who can beat the beautiful weather.
So while I may not be lying around on the beach in Florida (I’d get too bored too fast in all honesty. I always thought beach frying was boring. I’d much rather play in the ocean), I am perfectly content with taking summer classes, working and enjoying my “free time”.
Thank you, God, for the blessing of Your joy and this beautiful day.
I love You.
