Yes, I'm at grad school. And yes it's a lot of work. And yes sometimes I feel overwhelmed.
But when it comes down to it, I'm spending my days lounging around reading books. Whether comfortable in a porch rocking chair or cuddled on a couch in the library, it struck me that not many people can afford to spend their days like this. Reading for 3-6 hours at a time.
And when I drive around down here, it becomes glaringly clear that the opportunities I have would be considered luxurious to a lot of the people around me.
I don't know why I've been given such a good life. Good family. Good home. Good education. Good health. It probably has a lot to do with this good country I live in. So as much as I complain about the politics and the current state of education, I do see how lucky I am.
Happy 4th of July everyone.
