Postgraduation Musings

So now that I have graduated, I know the meaning of life, the secret of happiness, and my purpose on this earth... well, not exactly. But, I do believe and hope that I am headed in a God-centered direction.

Senior week and graduation were over in a blur, as expected. For anyone who missed the Senior Engineering prank, check it out because it was pretty epic and fun:

I had a countdown to graduation going for so long 126 days (but who's counting now?) that it feels a little strange NOT to be eagerly anticipating it. Cheryl and I had a long conversation yesterday, and we realized that it is going to be a challenge for us to live in the present. Not in a "live for the moment" kind of way, but in a way where we appreciate who we are with, what we are doing, and where we are just as it is without constantly expecting something better just around the corner.

I highly recommend reading the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis for anyone and everyone. It is both cleverly written and offers insight into how good intentions can go awry if we're not careful and conscientious every step of the way.

Now I just have to remember to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
