While they are still real ...

Posted by Hippo Bean at 2:14 AM
Summer came and went without bringing any warmth. And so quickly Fall is upon me and with it the much anticipated Advanced Flash class. I rushed through the first 2 assignments just to get them out of the way and out of mind so I can enjoy Sicily and Tomo's wacky family fully, without thinking of school. I want this last trip of the year to be completely adventure filled and totally enjoyable as I know I'd need to work very hard in Greg's class. This is going to be my internship last quarter. I'm back in being part-time. Although I enjoy the extra free time I wont enjoy not having much money again. I've gotten back to the routine of showing up to work every day and having a purpose, a place to be and a job to do every morning, just like what I've been doing all my life up till the day I was laid off from Vicinity. Now I'm back to being a part-timer. How quickly the time passes. I dont want this quarter to be my last as I've grown attached to the people at NAS and to the routine of going to the Base every morning. I know I will miss it terribly when I'm gone and I try not to think about it. I need to remind myself to really slowdown and appreciate from the bottom of my heart the fact that I was blessed to be given this opportunity of a lifetime. I look at the buildings, the guards, the immense open space of the Base, the wind tunnel I passed by every morning, the Columbia Cluster, Veronica's gentle smile, Ryan's goofy coolness, Don's sunshine, Lisa's insults, Harout's strange jokes, Cathy's understanding, Heather's friendly face, Randy's gentle voice, Lesya's cabbage wraps, Sue's big eyes, Rob's quiet intelligence, Steve's hearty laughter, the little shells on the glass, the ants. Some day, in the distant future, they will all come back to me and would cause a smile on my face. But for now, they are my presence and I should appreciate them, enjoy and love them with all my heart while they are still real...
