and then there are rainy days.

Quote Love: "May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."
-St. Thérèse de Lisieux

(This quote has been a great encouragement for me as I recently changed my major)

Since I am still playing catching up and trying to get all of my work done from when I was out of class with vertigo this fall, I do not have time for a full post. But I do have time to share a few videos from rainy days this fall and for you to watch on a rainy day while snuggled up in blankets, drinking hot tea, coffee, or cocoa. 

My new favorite music video, including one of my favorite redheads (Rupert Grint):

And then a few from Airband this year:

(The winners: 1WW with Revolution of Dance)

(3WO, 3WW, and Penthouse with Gold Dust)

(2nd East with Seize the Day... blast from the past:

(and my wing, 3EO, and 1EW - bro/sis love with Grace Kelly)

And a few Airband commercials from this year as well:

("Normal Activity")

And then there was the one I was almost a victim of...

(The Old Lick-The-Elbow Game) :]
well... that's all I have time for right now. Hopefully an actual post will be written soon...

a new beginning.

Quote Love: "You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present."
-Jan Glidewell

This semester has already been super crazy. I have not had time to reflect on my life too much this year because of crazy circumstances and a ton of work I've needed to get done...

And all I want to do is anything but the work I need to do now. 

I have two papers to write, 2 tests to study for, a few other random assignments to catch up on, reading for classes... It's not fun, and I need to be sleeping more. 

The only reason I am behind on my work is because a little "friend" came to visit last week. A dizzy friend... one named Vertigo. 

I am glad I can stand up and walk on my own again without any fear of losing my balance.

Lately I have been a little caught up in the past. I've just been quite nostalgic. Being nostalgic is not all bad. I mean, it reminds me of where I have come from. It helps me not to be afraid of change. But when it starts to take over my life, I know I need to move on. 

I guess I just miss the way some things were last year. Some things have changed for the better this year, and some things I am not too sure about just yet. I know I am not supposed to dwell on the past, and the good times in life when I have a whole life ahead of me to live, but that is way easier said than done in many cases...

I am working on creating a list of goals for the semester/sophomore year. Some are quite trivial, but some are very important to me. Like: wanting to invest in others on my wing more, making time for my family and God, etc. This is going to be a crazy year (especially this semester), so I want to make sure I am making the most of my time. 

Some goals are going to be easier to complete than others. I have almost completed one goal many times this year (which is one of the more trivial... and girly ones). Almost. At this point, I think I have completed it, which is definitely going to help me move forward on in my life and not dwell on the past as much. I thank God for His help in completing this goal (finally?). I want to move forward and say:

Happy Sophomore Year! Gonna live it up! Moving on from the memories of last year that are holding me back and looking to what is ahead!
