like my job because it forces me to actually take time and look at my surroundings. In the rush of college life, it's easy to go blindly to and from class without noticing your surroundings. Taking pictures for the Arboretum forces me to stop and smell the roses - literally, in some cases. I'm always impressed when I find a new, beautiful plant six feet off the path I take to class everyday."
