Hope you had a stellar week! I’ve been helping out with a few of the homecoming events, which has been SO much fun. A lot of the events, and this evening, got me thinking about the fact that everything fun seems to happen at night: most of this week’s events, stargazing with awesome friends tonight, city events like the plaza lights. I could go on and on.
I have a mindset that business gets done during the day, and all the fun happens in the evening/at night. Maybe I shouldn’t feel that way, and there is a lot of fun to be had during the day, but I am at my happiest at night-time. Something about the darkness, or maybe it’s the stress of the day coming to an end, brings conversations, jokes, and just being with people to a different level. Some people get crazy as they get tired, others grumpy, and still others just laugh, but it is so much easier to get to know people as the day comes to a close, though perhaps we feel this way because we can dwell on these things as we sleep afterward?
I’m not sure what brought this up, but I’ve been thinking a lot about it recently. It seems like ties are made and severed after nightfall: making new friends, maybe losing some that made you emotionally unhealthy. But, sometimes it’s just trying to figure out what’s still open late in Olathe, and packing up the car to head to McDonald’s or Waffle House, or just to drive because it’s free (kinda).
These experiences are something you can’t get back, hours well spent, so I encourage you to stay up late once in a while, study all day so you can stay up late, and just be with people.
That’s all I’ve got for this week, I hope you all are blessed as you live your lives this week, and I’ll see you soon!
