Dreams of Being a Shepherd

“Here I am, between my flock and my treasure, the boy thought. He had to choose between something he had become accustomed to and something he wanted to have.”

Jermaine decided to start doing some Yoga.

#CatLife Jermaine makes me jealous on lazy days. He always looks so comfortable.

School and the Afterlife

It feels like forever ago that I was writing about the Spring Semester getting ready to begin.  At that time it really seemed like I’d still be in school forever.  But, here we are.  It’s the 2nd to last day of Spring Break and I only have about a month and a half left of school.  Maybe less if you count days off.  I still have no idea what I’m going to do in the “afterlife”.  I’ve been in school my entire life up to this point.  From pre-school to now.  That’s something like 17 years?  The education system is pretty much all I’ve known.  

I can’t wait to be out.  I’m incredibly excited about leaving it all behind.  But of course I’m also a little apprehensive.  It seems like a huge jump to go from in school to suddenly being in the “real world”.  I have a small adjustment period, one last Summer (I’ll possibly be guiding rafts).  But by the end of July I have to have things figured out.  At this point school just seems to be in the way.  

Coming to Appalachian State University has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  I love everything about what the school life has been able to offer me in terms of outside experiences.  And yeah, I’ve even enjoyed some of the classes.  But I’ve never liked schoolwork.  And unfortunately I feel like that’s all I’ve really been prepared for.  I’m passionate about cycling and more, but how do I turn that into a living?  I guess that’s what I’ll be trying to answer these next few months.
