So… the first episode of A Friar Life will still be releasing today, but apparently I forgot to post this video from Wednesday on the blog. Oops. If you’re interested in the A Friar Life video, you can find it on YouTube this afternoon, but I won’t be posting it here until tomorrow.
Anyway… My first assignment! This is exciting! Last week I had the opportunity to visit the Catholic Center at the University of Georgia, and let me tell you: my trip exceeding even my high expectations. Having had a very difficult semester, I find myself of late very tired and worn out. (I think that fact that we got snow in Chicago twice this April also had something to do with it.) While I am often someone who looks forward to the future and gets excited about planning what’s next, I hadn’t been able to do that for UGA because I was so overwhelmed with what was right in front of me.
Getting on campus, my whole attitude changed. I found myself with a lot more life than I’ve had this year. I felt excitement in me that had frozen away in the snow and began to imagine the possibilities of the future.
And man… are there some possibilities! These students are amped up for the year, and there is just so much that we could be doing.
With that said, I hope you enjoy this video. It’s obviously not the totality of my first assignment, but it serves as a great first impression, offering a glimpse into what I’ll be doing next year. More to come, I’m sure, and be sure to check back tomorrow for the first episode of A Friar Life!
