Today is Celebrating Student Achievement at work, which is always one of my favorite days. I listen to research presentation and meet families and boyfriends and fiances. I love that we as a campus stop regular life for a day and just stand in awe of the work our students do. I will nod until my head falls off and beam and take a moment to just soak the day in. I will run around like a lunatic to see as many of my students as I can, and I will listen to my younger students wonder at what they will do themselves in the near future.
And for one brief shining day, I see the fruit of a lot of seeding and tending, and it is a good thing.
