I love my job, I really do, but with the dog days of summer winding down and the realization that Christmas is only 4 months away. I really want to be on the outside of this building not on the inside. Today is the last day of the year I will get a parking place close to the building; It is the last day of the year I can take a quick walk outside and actually have the sidewalk to myself. Today is the end of the summer for us here at the University I work for. Monday morning freshmen will be wandering the sidewalks desperate to find the building of the class they are late for. The air will be charged and the excitement will penetrate the campus. Today though we all are wishing for just one more lazy day of summer.
I pass through these doors and or see these words on a daily basis, but do I stop to think about the message they are sending?
Think – to employ one’s mind rationally and objectively in evaluating or dealing with a given situation
Work – exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something.
Serve – to render assistance; be of use.
When I started this blog I wanted a place where I would feel accountable to myself. A place to post the best of a daily challenge I had set out to accomplish. I also build in a small measure of grace knowing it might prove impossible to post daily… I have learned well Life Happens. The motto for the University I work at is THINK – WORK – SERVE. I hope in a small way this blog can also follow in this path. Not just meaningless rambles of an individual hoping to think about the pictures she will take, make the effort to exert herself to find and accomplish the idea, but also to serve to impact my world for the better in some small way. Loft aspirations for a nerdy girl like me but I think well worth it.
