You know what I love. New beginnings. A fresh new start. The feeling of wide open possibilities. That’s why I loved the quarter system. Three times a year, no matter how poorly you did the previous quarter, you get a brand new beginning. I think that’s why I love bookstores so much also. All these brand new books that offer something completely new. It’s also why I have such a hard time finishing books, I think.

Thing is, post school, you get precious few new beginnings. Marriage, job, church, whatever; with providence, you won’t have too many new beginnings with them. And it’s a good thing to be stable. But is there a way to have the new beginning feeling also? In the midst of duty and stability? No clue.
