You know that day when you’re in the Flow?
I’ve had a really productive day today. It didn’t particularly start out that way. The sky remained gray and rainy throughout my drive to school and my first class, in spite of the weather report that read “Sunny and 85” loud and clear. I helped a friend run an errand, which took longer than I expected and seemed to detract from my productivity. And right now I’m at the coffee shop instead of studying in the library.
But I finished the play that I’m supposed to have read before class tomorrow. I only have 50 pages left to read of Sister Carrie to keep up with Friday’s reading schedule. I somehow found time not only to write for an hour and a half on my current play, but I also had a thirty minute conversation with my grandmother to thank her for the lovely Easter package I received in the mail.
With finals approaching, I thought that I would start falling behind. Instead I’m rising to meet the challenge. It’s not that anything really spectacular happened today. I didn’t win any awards, land any big deals, or get any great big momentous news. But I like treasuring the little things and in a college environment filled with people constantly complaining with the amount of work they have, I would like to enjoy this moment of actually enjoying what I am doing, both in and out of the classroom.
I decided to search for happy images on Google. This is what I found:
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up!
Hopefully I can sustain this miraculous moment of flow and find the time to post about Beer Bike and the wonder that is Rice University later this week. We’ll see!
