Although it feels beyond incredible to be finished with school for the summer, I'm really going to miss my Astronomy class. I took it as a gen-ed class not thinking much of it, but I think it's been the most fascinating class I've taken in school yet. Obviously the size of the universe was just a "small" thing we learned in class, but here's a corny-made video that really demonstrates it --if you've never seen anything like it before..

Probably the nerd in me, but don't you think it's amazing that our bodies are made up of elements and matter that formed in the hearts of stars billions of years ago? i think it's THE sauce.
If anyone out there goes to college and needs the gen-ed credit, probably take this class.
ALSO, if it's been a while since you've taken a drive to remote country and looked up at the sky at night.. highly recommend it. you won't be disappointed.

a SUCCESS in summer reading!!!

Literally moments before I left to meet my family in Midway for our mini-vacation last week, I ran to the downtown Barnes&Noble for a book to read by the pool. It had been forever since I'd read a good book --I mean a book that I really loved.  But I didn't really have time to sit and read the backs of books for hours to find the perfect one.  So I stuck with the classics section and grabbed this one (Siddhartha) hoping it would take me somewhere adventurous and exotic in India.
I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. It's a beautiful, engaging novel about a Buddha-contemporary (also by the name of Siddhartha) and his extremely interesting and enlightening spiritual journey. I really identified with the main character and the book gave me many insights into my own life. Definitely one of my favorite books, and I'm actually considering re-reading it -something I've never done with a book before. *****/*****
So if you're looking for a good summer read, it's relatively short and has it on sale for about $5.
