So, I complain, like, a lot about school. I'm too old. I'm too fat. OMG is it over yet?! I realized this the other day when I was walking around campus (I had appointments on different sides of campus-- much walking was involved). As I actually looked around, I noticed there is much more I like about school than I let on. Yes, I'm older than most people (even professors) on campus, but while they have youth or a degree, I have a family. I have a kick-a$$ husband and two amazing children, great family and true-blue friends, AND I will soon have my degree. So, I have decided to enjoy the ride: to take my eyes off the ground and look around a bit. Breathe. I'd like to share a few of my favorite places around campus. These things make hot pants and see-through tops SO much more bearable.
As in New York City, there is a Starbucks on every corner of campus. Today, the Starbucks IN the library was out of soy milk. After I thought for about 5 minutes in front of the barista, "Ummmmmmm........" I simply walked to another one, which had soy milk delivered this morning. Score. I'm still sort of bitter that Joe has a Starbucks in the College of Medicine. (They get so much good $hit!) But hey, he doesn't have stained glass. Being artsy has it's perks.
All this to say, let's focus on the positive and stay in the present and all that jazz. Enjoy. :)
