Getting my Personal Life Back

My assignment for day 3 in Writing101  is called “One-word inspiration.”  The beauty of the one-word prompt is that it’s open to interpretation.  The word that I have chosen to use is love.

“Don’t let making a living prevent you from making a life.”  ~ John Wooden

I saw a different variation of this quote in someone else’s blog recently, and have not been able to get it out of my mind.  In the past few months, I was very busy attempting to meet some level of financial stability.  I have been job searching while teaching my math and physics courses during the semester.

I have been so busy trying to make a living that I don’t have much of a personal life.  In an effort to change that in some small way, I have joined a couple of groups that do things that I love to do.

  1. watch college football – I love to watch college football, and have a favorite team.  There is even a local group that gets together every saturday to watch my favorite team in a bar on the big screen.  I have decided to go every week and attempt to make a few friends. For my international viewers, I am not talking about soccer.
  2. stargazing – I love astronomy and stargazing.  I have for as long as I can remember.  I practice the cheap and inexpensive version of this hobby by going to local universities and science museums when they have a public observing night.  I even found a group that regularly goes to these events.
  3. watch movies – I love to watch movies especially science fiction and fantasy.  Watching movies in a theatre can get surprisingly expensive where I live.  I usually only go to movies that I think will be really good.
