A new leaf


| Comments (0) | Views (38)

I was sitting downstairs in the kitchen earlier this evening sharing with my mother the excitement and enthusiasm I'm feeling towards my school work and the classes I'm taking. She was asking me what I had been laughing about a while earlier, and I explained that I discovered a new approach to a Java program that I'm writing for one of my assignments. And I realized how inherently gratifying it becomes to take an assignment and solve the problem. So much so, that I have found myself rethinking the problem only to come up with an alternate solution. In other words, the journey is the reward, and the journey is the learning experience.

So I found myself saying to my mother with enthusiasm, "I can't wait to go back to school on Monday!" However at the same time I said this I was also telling her of several other assignments that I need to get done before then. So why is it that I am anxious to get back to school when there is still plenty of work that has to be done beforehand? The answer became clear: to see everyone again. I am anxious for the social aspect that comes with the learning experience.

This in itself is a learning experience to me for the reason that I have always thought myself to be an introvert. I guess it's time to turn over a new leaf.
