It’s another beginning. Another attempt. Hopefully, everything I set today would be part of the semester’s routine. I’ve also written several versions of this in my journal although not as many as the number of time I thought of this. As if thinking about it frequent enough would make it a reality. That’s a case for the unending hope that streams from within us. Bordering on delusion and yes, stupidity but I still consider having some hope as a good thing. Continue reading “goals for August”
