The Simple Things

It’s not raining today!

Wow, for the first time in weeks I don’t have to be concerned with the weather when headed out in the morning for work.  I didn’t bring my umbrella like usual or rethink my shoe choice to avoid muddy pants.

While my fellow classmates are also immersing themselves in their summer internships, I hope that they don’t allow these little details to get them down.

I know the hardship and discouragement of seeing the corn and bean crop swimming in pools of water or watching animals struggle from the stress of the heat.

There are always better and brighter days ahead! Soon, the puddles will disappear, July in all of its glory will set in, and this rain will be history.

I believe that this rain has been a good reminder of what we as ACES students, faculty, and alumni have to do frequently—keep your head up and carry forward.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”-Walt Disney

 Walt said it well. Continue to be optimistic about the outcomes of the summer and be curious about all of the options and opportunities that await you.
