Becoming a Reader: I'm Clubbin...Book Clubbin That Is
Life after college is a funny thing. Your whole life you're preparing for things-working your trash off to get the grades/scholarship/portfolio so you can get into the school/program that you want, then you work your trash off to build your resume to get the job you want. Then you get that job you want, and you work 8-4, and you come home and don't have homework or random clubs and activities to build your resume, and you think, "I have 8 hours to do whatever I want!" And you go, "What do I want?" I can finally go to events without worrying about the homework I should be doing. I can even volunteer to bring food to such events. I can meet my neighbors and make cookies. I can do home improvement projects. I can be a weekend warrior. I've never ever had time like this in my life! IT'S AMAZING! I didn't used to get home until 7 and then the homework fest would begin (After I made/ate/cleaned up dinner, cleaned the house, did the laundry, etc.) Now cooking isn't such a pain! I have time to do it and enjoy it! I even joined the book club last night! I've never done anything so fluffy in my life! It has always been about productivity and multitasking. Now I'm reading things I want to read, not just because they're assigned! Of course, I've yet to literally sit down and relax (Landon gave me a book called It's Okay to Take a Nap-but who has time to read something like that?), but that's what's so fun! I'm now running around doing fun things! My life is posh.
