Hallo, Leute! Wie geht’s? Hope you’re all having a good weekend! Today, after church we had a mother’s appreciation potluck and so, for the first time since Easter, I was able to spend a lot of time with friends and family. I talked a lot with my grandma about the state of the Seattle Mariners (unfortunately things aren’t looking so good), talked to my aunt and my cousin about college and the classes I’m taking in fall quarter, and discussed the book of Job (chapters 1-3) with my uncle and two of my cousins.
I suppose that one of the main reasons for my writing this post is that nowadays, people don’t often get to spend as much time with family and friends as perhaps people did 50 years ago. Maybe it’s just a cultural/lifestyle change that’s happened. For me, with school and such I don’t get to spend as much time with family as I did in the past and how studying often leads me to see less of my friends as well. While it is important to get work done for school, days like today remind me that it’s important to spend time with the people that you care about! And so, this summer, I’m hoping to spend more time with friends and family than I am generally accustomed to! It’s just going to be a sort of summer goal for me!
What sorts of things do you hope to get done this summer? Vielen Dank und tschüss!
