A quick thought
As I was wandering around campus today listening to the Life Aquatic soundtrack I remembered a train of thought I had about academia over the last couple of years. The two college campuses that I have spent time on felt like a haven from the outside world to me. The simple lack of auto traffic, the park-like setting, and the regard for knowledge that the outside world doesn't always have are just three of the conditions that contribute to this haven-like status atmosphere. In fact, it is not a bad place to escape from reality in a way. This is probably one reason that I like being in school. Here's to hoping that the potential work I do with National Park Service has a similar feel to it.
