Man today was a good day. I am really enjoying life right now.
College is everything that I expected. I can sleep in on certain days and the weeks have been going by so fast. As the days progress through the week, they become easier for me. I go from having 4 classes Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday, and then 2 on Thursday and Friday. So it’s like the more I wait it out, the more I will get rewarded by not having to worry about too much at the end of the week.
My professors are really cool. I like them a lot. My Cosmic Concepts professor plays all kinds of musical instruments and is very talented! He played for us last Friday, so I am hoping he will today too. My Philosophy teacher is really cool. I am in Philosophy 102 which is Contemporary Ethical Problems. Basically we disucess issues that are happening within the world right now and try to figure out why we think they are moral or immoral. I feel like Professor Bucchino is learning as much as he is teaching. He pretty much tells us what the book says, and then the classroom full of diverse, and very intelligent people I might add, show him a different perspective. It’s exactly what I wanted to experience in that class! My Intro to Literature class is A LOT of fun too! We just finished the book City of Glass by Paul Auster. It’s an AMAZING book! It kept me guessing through every page. That class has many open minded and energetic people which is the perfect setting for that type of class. Kevin Kehrwald, the professor is very laid back which makes it easier to open up and share opinions.
Tonight after I hung out with Jenessa at Compton during her work, Mary, Nick, and I went to Dan’s Rock State Park. For those of you not from this area, it’s just a rock formation at the top of a mountain that looks over many miles and many lights. Mary and Nick kind of argued for a while and I just went over and laid on a rock and looked up at the stars. It was like a 3/4 moon so it was very bright and not many stars could be seen…but there were enough to enjoy it. As I was laying there listening to the bickering behind me, I saw a shooting star! It was a very exciting experience. I don’t remember the last time I saw a shooting star. Suddenly, just as I was getting calm again from that shooting star, I saw another one. And soon after another! It was awesome! I couldn’t believe that after all these years of not seeing a single one, I saw three. It was then that I realized, through the bickering in the background from Mary and Nick, that I was able to be excited about something as simple as a shooting star. That’s when I knew I was in good shape. I felt like a little kid again. While some of my closest friends are bickering about relationships, I am still able to relax and just appreciate the amazing celestial sky that was available to me that night.
In conclusion, I would just like that thank God for blessing me with the life I have. Although certain things can be better…overall I have been blessed with the mindset and the friends, and the family, and everything. I would also suggest to whomever is reading this right now, to take some time out of your busy life, and go lay outside one night and look at the stars. Appreciate what has been provided for you; you never know when it could all be taken away.
