Today I learned…

Today I learned that a group of foxes is called a skulk.

I learned that children are not taught how to handle books gently and respectfully, but like disposable toys. Well, I learned that again.

I learned that the word formication means “a tactile hallucination involving the belief that something is crawling on the body or under the skin.” Who knew? I didn’t.

Last night I learned that a friend of mine in Australia might have a job for me as a research assistant. I would actually get to be working and studying within my field – philosophy. I never thought I’d see the day. Really though, who doesn’t want to do research in bioethics?

Maybe this Peace Corps thing didn’t work out for a reason. Maybe there’s another great adventure with my name on it, and it wouldn’t be there if I spent two years in Rwanda right now. Good things happen to those who wait? I wasn’t waiting very patiently. My exasperation was more than evident. Maybe good things just …happen.

I’ll be looking into this opportunity. That’s for certain.

Keep looking forward. I learned that today too.
