I love days like today. I love intelligent conversations, opportunities to learn more about the people I could just walk past, and brain candy. I love that my thesis advisor knows more about young adult fantasy and science fiction than I do, and that she is willing to take time out of her day to talk to me about it. I love that I work with people who care enough about ideas to share them. I love the life that I live, and I forget that sometimes. Classes and interactions become mundane with dangerous ease. Getting to learn becomes having to learn. Strangers stay strange. But not today. Today life feels fresh and new, and I want you, the people of the internet, to know that.
