Reading for class when I could just improvise: Stepping it up

For me to actually get better at learning this semester, I need to do my readings. I hate reading with I could just figure it out otherwise. But it is necessary, if I don’t want to seem like an idiot sometimes, on occasions where improvisation isn’t fair.

Dang, laziness is a real, perpetual thing. But if I want to make the most of my education, I have to keep making an effort. So be it. I don’t want to, but I will.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
