Late Night Quiz

Another quiz courtesy of Facebook. It’s pretty on the mark. English is an off-chute of Psych, as we have to, more often than not, study the psychology of characters, analyze them and their storybook world the authors create… which in turn is perhaps an extension of the author… haha.

The results.

 

 

Josh took the what COLLEGE MAJOR should you have? quiz and the result is Psychology
You and want to know what makes people tick. The sea of similarities and differences between any two human minds fascinates you, and you can sail through college with this light-weight degree in an emerging, immature science. Even though you’ll never work in a related field without going to grad school. But hey $12 an hour aint bad? Right? Right? Your love of the human mind outweighs your love of material things like food and water, which you’ll never be able to afford again.

 

I guess it’s time for bed. Hopefully I can fall asleep more easily tonight. It’s been a tough few days mentally, though Easter did help a little. It was nice to feel uplifted and optimistic about the new Easter season. Perhaps I can improve upon my shortcomings of the Lenten season. I can only hope.

 

And for the record, my first Coke after abstaining for ALL of Lent was, dare I say, kind of disappointing! I guess I’ve lost the taste for it. Or maybe it was just a bad batch. I’ll have to have some soon again.

 

I promise some sort of academic writing as well as a look at my fantasy baseball team in the near future. I just haven’t had the writing urge lately. I’m all messed up I tell you.

On the Road Again

I’ve always loved to travel.

It doesn’t matter by what mode of transportation, as it usually leads to a thrilling adventure, a reunion of some sorts with people you love, or vacation. Even when the reasons aren’t so happy and ideal, traveling may lead to familial and friendly support, a temporary escape, or ultimate closure.

Last weekend, it was a trip to Austin, Texas, to see my significant other for Valentine’s Day. It was the first time that I’ve really actually gotten into V-Day, and well, the first time I’ve had the chance to take a girl out for it. As she pointed out, who would have thought it would have been in San Antonio.

I sure didn’t.

It was a romantic weekend. We decided to go down to San Antonio to eat dinner at a nice restaurant on the Riverwalk. It was a picturesque perfection that I can only hope we can top as we continue to be together, despite the persistent chilly breeze that made us cold and a wobbly table. Our first official Valentine’s. Unforgettable.

Today, it’s another reunion for me. I write from seat 6A on my Southwest flight to Chicago. There I will catch my connection to Omaha, Nebraska. It’s been nine months since I’ve seen my closest friends from Notre Dame. It will be wonderful to see them again and spend the little time that we’ll have together.

I guess it wasn’t until these past few weeks I’ve realized how much I enjoy flying. We know there are certain stresses that come with flying, such as worrying about finding overhead space for bags, getting through security with your belongings and dignity intact, and hoping you make connecting flights. But once you meet these challenges, you’re free. And you’re on a non-stop flight to the future.

Oh the freedom of flight.

For those few hours, you are free of the modern day ball and chain- the cell phone and the internet. Sure, people still know where you are. You’re on a flight! But there is no waiting for the next email or text or phone call. It can’t even be on.

It’s just you, your complimentary 6 ounces of your favorite Coke product, and fellow passengers.

Of course, even now there are business men and women typing away on their computers trying to meet deadlines. But we are free, if only temporarily, from the grasp the world has on us. Those 30,000 feet make all the difference. You can sit and take a breather from life almost, while peering down on it. It’s marvelous isn’t it? The countryside, the cities, the oceans. God’s partnership with mankind produces some wonders.

So anytime that you heapsters are on the road again, remember to enjoy those precious moments of tranquility. It’s only a matter of time until you arrive at the Future, where you’ll activate again your social shackles getting to where you have to go and doing what you have to do.
