The Secret to Balancing Springtime and School Work


Bob Wiesner offers that some juggling of tasks and pleasure is in order now because a good Catholic cannot simply ignore God’s great gift of springtime.

Yes, it’s that time of year!

The air is warm, the sun is bright, streams are running crisp and cold, greenery is breaking out all over, the family dog is begging for a long hike…and there’s that pesky Roe v. Wade paper still to write, one more book analysis for English, a few more chapter tests in Geography.

What’s a senior to do?

Grit your teeth, summon up every last bit of will-power in your possession and keep to the task at hand!

Every once in a while we get a frantic call from a student who let the last few assignments slide, went to college without the diploma and found in his or her second year that the Registrar is wondering why the transcript is still showing no graduation date.

Of course, a good Catholic cannot afford to simply ignore God’s great gift of springtime, either.

A bit of judicious juggling of tasks and pleasure is in order. Once Roe v. Wade is finished, by all means take a ramble with Fido. After completing Geography, reward yourself with a short trip to the ice cream parlor.

When the last book analysis is written, go fishing for the rest of the afternoon.

But, be sure to take up the books again upon your return.

You’ll be thankful later!
