Nice title, huh? Well, this summer has been in full force for the last couple of weeks. It finally hit that everyone is gone home for the summer and the pace of life has slowed down distinctively around campus. I love this time of year because it brings about a different kind of routine…
The title tells of three things added to the summer routine. My roommates are highly frustrated that I will not slack off from winning at rummikub. Aside from the smell of victory…it is a highly addictive game that you should definitely play. It is mixture of uno, phase 10 and rummy (three of the best games).
We’ve been at the pool scoping out the scenery…along with getting some sun and exercise too! It isn’t so much fun to people watch? Because I don’t get to go during the sunlight hours we try to go down and swim some at night time before they close at 10 p.m. I might be a fish before the end of the summer.
And of course, summertime brings about a movie marathon ever so often. Not so much a movie marathon right now but rather I got hooked watching Friday Night Lights TV series. I’ve watched season 1, 2 and 3 in a matter of two weeks. This whole netflix thing is a pretty cool idea especially now that they will send you a CD to view “streaming” movies and tv shows on your Wii system.
What else can I tell you about the summer?
We’re planning a cosmic Wii bowling party in a couple of weeks… oh that’s right…blacklights, glowsticks, techno music and wii bowling. Should be slammin’!
We’re watching the Bachelorette with Ali. Who will be the last guy standing? I am trying to refrain from reading the rumor blogs to blow the surprise. Funny how people really think that what we see on TV is the realistic and consistent view of LOVE. phishhhhhh! Right!
I am heading to Orlando next week for the Southern Baptist Convention. Looking forward to seeing Dustin. We’ll see about the rest of it!
And it wouldn’t be truthful if I told you that summer was just the best time and that everything was just perfect. I find that for me the summer time brings a lot more time to reflect and dwell on things. For someone like me who is very analytical that can be very draining and crippling. The last couple of days I have been feeling distant from people, from God, from structure, from my convictions. How do I overcome this distance? What can I do to help me stay close to the Lord? What do I need to talk about with my mentor concerning this? Know that this is normal for someone to go through these emotions and thoughts, but it is not normal to allow them to pass by without acknowledgment.
So that’s summer time for me. What are you doing this summer?
