It's in the little things

Where does the time go when it's not around here?

A month and a half has slipped by without me writing anything, but I'm basically the same person I was before, with a little more knowledge and the same amount of insight.

My favorite class by far is my physics/astronomy lab, because one night a week we travel to an observatory forty-five minutes away to observe and get data for our final projects. When I'm out there, I forget about people, MIT, work, everything because the place is basically deserted. Out there, I take every chance I can get to look at the sky. When I'm not taking exposures or adjusting the telescope, I lean my head back and stare everywhere around me. And I remember why I came to this place - to learn, to be inspired. Because every single time I'm out there, I am reinspired, if that's even possible. By the stars? I think that's only part of it. I think the main reason is because I'm reminded that there's still so much for me to learn, and it's all there waiting to be discovered.

I think it's important to remember, every once in awhile, why you're doing what you're doing. At least in my experience, life just seems a little happier that way.
