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

The Ho Hum of Summer

Not much happened around here today... I went for a run - well, truth be told, it was more like a jog...with breaks - for the first time in over a week, which was due to my road trip; sat sipping an iced Jasmine tea in Argo Tea while reading The Power of Habit (for grad school); read some more at home; started putting things in piles for grad school; started reading another book for grad school (which is far less interesting and not nearly as well-written as the previously mentioned text); and met up with a friend for dessert at a local establishment.

It's that in-between time for me - just got back from my road trip and not quite leaving for ND. I like not having a lot to do, but I seriously get restless. (Maybe it would help if I was reading a book for fun...)

Tomorrow I am going to try to go to morning Mass, check out the new coffee shop (conveniently located by the church), and get my hair cut. I will also try to finish that second (boring) book.

Man, it's hard being a teacher - many of my teacher friends are out of town (or working a summer job) and the rest of my friends work during regular hours...

Well, happy official start to summer!
