(An on-going project to discover truth in and about ourselves. See part 1.)
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
It’s now 8:30PM. I started this post at 7:00 this morning, and I have 19 words written. While I haven’t been sitting here staring at it the whole time, I have been thinking about the prompt all day long. And I’m still stuck. Is it possible to love a skill? I mean, can I love that I’m good at school? Does that even matter? Anyways, we’ll go with that.
College was an eye-opening experience for me. It made me realize that I really am good at something: academics. School was a breeze, not because I’m smart, but because I just got it. School just clicked; I knew the hoops, I knew how to jump through them, and what’s more, I enjoyed jumping through them. The papers, the tests, the reading, the lectures. I loved every bit of it. And I was GOOD at it. I don’t mean I got a perfect 4.0–I didn’t. But what I do mean, is that for the classes I enjoyed, I really excelled.
So I guess that is what I love about myself, because it’s given me a passion for learning, education, and academics. My aspirations of professorship are on hold for now, but how many people’s plans weren’t put on hold due to the economic downturn? But I’ll get there eventually. And I will do well, because it’s my cup of tea. It’s my niche. It’s what I’m good at. And I love that about myself.
