So it turns out....


.....that I was born for this.....
It seems like a fairly strange time for this thought to dawn on me. Its true, I was made to go to University. Yes, I have a paper due on Friday morning, that I am extremely ill prepared for. No, I am not really keen on sitting in the library all day today.

But as I walked through campus, I realized - life might not get much better than this. As much as I need school to be over, and I will be rejoicing on Friday, I also need to learn. I am so grateful that I have the chance to study, to research and to know. I think this will be one of those times in my life that I will always look back on and try to re-live.

Does this mean I am an academic? Hardly. I only wish. It does mean that learning has become a part of me. Laugh if you will. This might make me a geek, but it was truly a unique moment today.
.....Maybe it was because the sun was shining, and I had lunch talking to Master's students,
who knows......

Never discount those moments because they might sound cheesy on a blog.
It's fantastic.
