lipari is a friend of a friend and from what i’ve heard she has a great head on her shoulders
Quigley is a dear friend and while she knows how good she is, I’d have to say the same.
I had the most motivating meeting with my adviser today. I determined that my plans all hinge on one grade which hinges on one test. I have a couple of options going forward in my career, one being earning a dual degree in exercise science and sociology with a minor in religion, another being a masters in sports psychology, and the original plan of going straight to grad school for exercise physiology and becoming a grad assistant somewhere else. I think what was so encouraging about it was that all of the intangible thoughts about my progress were turned into tangible goals capable of being measured… That and she very bluntly told me to get my head out of my ass and step up to my potential.
I’ve been helping out with my church’s youth group since they hired the new youth director, and for a while it seemed very difficult to make connections and be present, I felt that they didn’t want to be there and I was already thinking about what I could be spending the time doing. Tonight It finally clicked though. these kids are awesome! We played a game where everyone must choose an alias, and kids were picking people I couldn’t believe. Caesar Chavez, Karl Marx, and Gandhi being the three I remember most vividly. For some reason any doubts I had about spending time with these kids and helping them wrestle with how to live the christian life were assuaged, I realized I do love them and want them to grow and hang out with me.
