This must be the place

It's been some time. In that time my sister was married and I continue to slowly be slaughtered by my classes. Actually, ok, slaughtered is a tad dramatic. But, school is rough.

I recently, as in Friday decided that I really need to get in order and start giving life and college 110% of my energy. So I went to Barnes and Noble and bought a planner. Once I started filling this planner out, I realized how much I have left on my plate this semester...yikes.

But filling out this planner also helped me to see how much I miss doing things I love. I need to make more time for them. I miss sketching and painting, I miss crocheting and playing the guitar. I miss reading the most. If anyone has a good book they have recently read, let me know.

So this is my solemn promise to my self. That no matter where I am in life, no matter where I live or what is making me feel "super busy", I promise to make it The Place. The place where I am first and foremost myself and making time to do things I love.

I started today by laying under a shedding tree, listening to my tunes and thinking about how wonderful Fall is.

Fall Breakers

I really love autumn in Provo. I love walking to campus with a chilled nose and my tunes plugged in. Sometimes I just walk with my head tilted up watching the papery, golden, leaves flutter down around me in their weird zig-zagging descent. I am sure it just makes people think I have no social skills with my face tilted up in the sky, but I don't have very many social skills...so I guess it's fine. And if they only questioned my weirdness, I guess this confirms it. Happy Autumn!
