When I was at physical therapy today (more than a friggin YEAR after the accident and I still go to this, yes), the tech doing the untrasound on my back was telling me ALLLL sorts of stuff. Stuff like his elaborate fantasy about being the only skinny guy in the WWF and what his costume would look like and how everyone would cheer for the skinny-buff-awesome kid who was definitely NOT wearing a speedo. He also told me about how he's got a big fishing trip scheduled for this weekend. He said, "I have to have *something* to look forward to, or else I can't make it through the week."
This reminded me of a conversation I was having with a friend of mine about how the only way I got through chemistry class was the fact that I had a crush on a boy in chemistry (not Guy-Smiley, steve. I'm talking about a different chemistry class!). So I *wanted* to go to chemistry. I wanted to *study* chemistry. (my mind is making up all these lame jokes about boys and chemistry right now!) Chemistry class was something I looked forward to every, single day. It was soooo exciting! So dramatic! So awesome!
So, this leads to the question...Once you're all old and married with kids and stuff, how do you get this excitement back? How do you look forward to a day/class/activity with as much excitement as I had about that chemistry class?
What works for you guys?
