While I rather enjoy the rigors and challenges of getting a college education, summer break has been nothing short of a dream. I have been able to work more, which has been very rewarding in the absence of school work. Also, I have been focusing on getting outside more... whether that means going on a hike, to the beach, or out to the arena to ride my horses. I have even found time to rediscover my love of art and doodling on these quiet, summer afternoons. Truthfully, I'm starting to look forward to returning to campus next month, but am going to continue loving every minute of summer until then.
