So what’s a guy to say when he hasn’t written in nearly 2 months?
I’m sorry. I’ve been distant. I needed my space. Forgive me?
Why, hello! A lot has happened since that last time I wrote, definitely too much to catch you up on fully, but here’s the 140 character or less summary: “1st year of sem=done, selling shoes, worship leader for wed. night worship, too much free time, too little friends, still really in love.”
Word limits are good for me. I tend to be wordy.
Summer is here, and yesterday’s sunshine helped prove that correctly. This is quite a unique summer for me. For the first time in a while, I am not in class. Homework isn’t my constant shadow for a few months. Needless to say, I’m a bit excited about this summer. It turns out I’m going to have a lot more free time than I initially planned, but I am striving to use this summer wisely. This is very possibly the last summer I will have with so little responsibility. I intend to use it to the fullest.
How you ask? For starters, I made a book list. I don’t think I’ve ever written an actually summer reading list before, but I am ready to read. For fun. Not for school. I also want to play a lot of music this summer and stretch myself in new ways. Does that mean more finger picking and more ukulele? You betchya.
I am also striving to use this summer as a time to fall into some good routines. With all this newfound time on my hands, I immediately run the risk of being lazy. I don’t want to be lazy this summer. I want to accomplish a lot while enjoying the downtime I have. I want to write, exercise (crazy, I know), be spontaneous, be outdoorsy, and enjoy a cup of coffee on my balcony just for the hay of it. I want to live. Do you know what I mean? I don’t want to sleep through this summer. I want to look back and see a clear cut journey of where I’ve been, and where I’ve come, through a summer of life, joy, passion, and growth. I invite you to take this journey with me. There’s no time like now, right?
It’s good to be back. I hope to write much more often on here this summer. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
