jay Is selfish
Many thoughts scrambling around my head today. While walking down the second floor corridor of the brand new Golisano building 70, with my friend Marc on our way to Discrete Math class, I sauntered into Professor Lawley's office today still brimming with excitement and joy from this weekend. Interrupting her in-progress conversation with Professor Andy Phelps, I put my needs before theirs by introducing myself and thanking her for the assistance with getting my blog up and running. I then excused myself and left. I could have come back later when she was free. I could have at least acknowledged Andy, who I also interrupted, and who is a major influence to why I am even back here finishing up my degree. It's times like this that make me wonder how I allow myself to be so socially inept. I usually shrug it off, justifying it by having nothing but good intentions. But the fact remains that I was putting myself first. I must continue to learn how to not be selfish. This is one area of my life which warrants constant mindfulness, since it's easy to let down one's guard especially during feelings of joy and bliss.
