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

A Promise Worth Keeping
In my (nearly) 30 years of life on this beautiful earth, I have come to the realization that I like to spend my time (and money) on events/outings rather than on things/goods. That's not revolutionary, I know, but, even more so, I really appreciate good theater and music, so I naturally try to channel what little extra money I have (after food, rent, & Church- and school-related stuff) toward this.
Therefore, I want to make a promise to myself - and it's one that I think I'll be pretty good at keeping (especially since I live in Chicago): My goal is to attend at least one show/concert a month. In September Marisa and I are already lined up to see the "Q Gents" and "Side Show." In October we'll get a chance to see "Ride the Cyclone." After that, I better start looking at my options.
It may sound extravagant, but we have our ways of finding cheap tickets. (And it's also a good excuse to spend an evening with friends and/or family.) Plus, it supports the arts - these people are INCREDIBLE, and they need to be celebrated!
So yes, it's my little secret. It's a promise I'm looking forward to keeping. I'll keep you posted on how the shows go...
