It Was the Best of Days and the Worst of Days

Before I re-enter the wonderful world of homework I would like to pause and think.  Think about England and that if I were there good, loose-leaf tea and biscuits would be plentiful.

Next, I would like to say, I am about to have my first sip of instant coffee.  Yes, yes, I know who my father is...but I don't brew coffee and this was all that was available to me!  (Courtesy of my dear, wonderful RA).

Also, today has been one of those days where it would be nice to just go back to bed and either restart or just sleep it off. 

Senioritis is a kicker.

But, I am blessed with friends who love and encourage me (and sometimes wallow with me ; ) )

Because the mountains in the fall make my heart happy!

My Little Brother is 16!!!

Sixteen years.
Thinking about that number seems so long, yet, so close, yet, so in between.
I remember thinking that my brother hadn't been around that long when he was three, four, and five (approx).
Now he has been around 16 years.
I still remember the night he was born.
I was at Kae Lacy's making blackberry syrup.  I remember Daddy coming to get me.
I remember being taken to the hospital and trying to see the nurse give him a bath.
I remember holding him.
Well, as the years passed we would fight and I was always told, "One day he will be bigger than you..."
That day came a few years ago.

Happy Birthday, Michael!
I love you, my little brother!

Isn't he just the cutest?

He's still pretty cute ; )

Obsession of my weekend (last weekend)

One of my favorite movies EVER!

Fall weather arrived tonight.
We'll see how permanent.

Cannot wait for Thanksgiving Break (it's not even the food, just the time to rest!)

High and Low

I battle discontentment.
Constantly I say, "I miss..." or "I wish...."
Last night while walking around campus I kept thinking to myself how ready I am to leave this campus.  I want scenery, woods, beauty, and a new place.
I want to blame this on my constant moving as a child.
That's not fair, though.
I just have this desire to keep seeing new places.
That could partially be due to my family.
I have a pretty international family and many have traveled a good bit.
I want to travel soooo many places!
But, for now I am at CIU and I need to finish my education.
Then I can start exploring : )
