I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

An Odd Bookstore...

It's true - I read Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore today, and it is very Westing Game-esque. The book just grabs you and takes you for a wild ride from the moment you walk into the bookstore with Clay, the book's main character. It's so intriguing - I must have read for about 3 hours straight today...but it didn't feel long at all.

Can you tell I'm on spring break? I hadn't read for pleasure since I finished the Divergent trilogy in the middle of February, so a book for fun was way overdue.

My to-do list for the week is still pretty long, but I did cross off finishing this book. And I did so with a sense of accomplishment, as it felt like I had just helped Clay solve the mystery too.
