Happy New Year! Sure we are ten days in, but I am still celebrating turning over a new leaf. Heck, I've even read two novels already, something that has been supplanted by running books and magazines the past couple of years. (Of course, I still plan to read all of those, too!).

I try my hardest to live simply and peacefully. But, one of the few things that annoys me and causes me to question others is the fact that most people of our society don't stay present. When I'm at school everyone around me is focusing on what their grade might be at the end of the semester, in four months. Or on the test later that day, but they didn't study. Around town I hear people talk about how they can't wait for the weekend or they can't wait to do this or that. It is that phrase, "can't wait" that I think encapsulates our society's affliction. It creates a predisposition towards impatience.
