I have spent the past hour trying to write out all the things that are in my heart right now, but it just keeps turning into a super long mush fest. So I’ll just leave it at this: God is so very aware of each of us, and He loves us so so so so so so much. I know many of you don’t share my faith, but I just want to say that I have truly been blessed. The last six months of my life have been a long drink of cool water after years of drought, and I am ridiculously happy. If you are feeling lost or frustrated or hurt or angry or scared or alone, just hang in there. I promise you that good things are coming. I can make that promise because I’ve been where you are, and I’m sure I’ll be there again someday. It happens. It’s life. But when the blessings come, they are infinite.
*Sigh…* What a great week.
This is another shot from my recent walk through Leazes Park
. Have I mentioned how much I love fall? (Yes, Jess. Only about a million times…)
Apparently,the birds have been hanging out with my neighbors too much and now they think it’s a good idea to wake Jess up by screaming loudly outside her window. Between the birds and the drunk boys coming in at 2am and realizing they’ve forgotten their keys, I’m hardly getting any sleep…
If you know what these are, you’re old. (But don’t worry, I’m right there with you…)
I had a break between classes on Monday, so I came over here to eat my lunch. This is my campus. I go to school here. When did I get so lucky?
This is the market where I buy all my meat and produce. I’m still too chicken to take a picture of any of the vendors’ wares, but I’m working on being a braver street photographer. This will just have to do for now, and at least it gives you an idea of how colorful this place is.
I was always under the mistaken impression that we North Americans were the only ones who bothered with Daylight Savings. Apparently not, because Europe also does it, and England does it a full week earlier than you Americans. When I left campus at 5pm, this is what the sky looked like.
Yet another adventure that I need to post about. The weather was peeeerrrrrfffeeccct and the Priory was well worth the price of admission.
