I watched Invictus tonight, with Morgan Freeman. It was really inspiring! The title of the movie comes from a poem by William Ernest Henle. I thought I'd share it here.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

I'm sitting in my hotel room in San Diego, soaking up the moment. My friend and I spent several hours in the car, and the first thing we did when we arrived was run out onto the beach! It's so beautiful! After that, we drove to downtown, and then spent several hours at Sea World! The dolphins are so cool, and I love the seal and otter show. Oh yeah! We got free food too, which was delicious. My favorite part of the day, though, was the firework show just before the park closed. Wow. What a day! The big race is so close!!!!!!! :D

Wow! It's been a crazy day. I got up at 5:45, went to my 2 hour communications class, and just now got off work! This is gonna be my schedule for the entire month of June, too! I already like my com class though, because the professor is really passionate and all-around awesome. :) Plus, I love my job! Anyway. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep this up, and choose happiness and joy everyday!
