I just realized something:

I’m living my dream this summer.

I’m freaking going to Italy and learning to speak Italian and learning how to cook Italian food. I’m travelling and going to be writing and will be exploring the world. I’m combining things that I love in life to make for one heck of an awesome summer.

Why is it that life can’t always be like this? Sure, I realize it’s illogical and slightly unreasonable to be able to live your dream every day, but can’t most of life be made up of things that you love doing? Can’t we make a contribution to society and enjoy doing so? I feel like too many people are stuck in jobs that they just don’t enjoy and therefore can’t make as big of a contribution as they could be making if they were doing something related to what they like.

I also find it interesting that my summer of dreams does not seem to include engineering at all. Hmm, I’ll ponder this and get back to you…

And on a completely random note, my friend on my staff showed us this video at our meeting this week. I really like it and hope you enjoy it too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTJ7AzBIJoI
