Life has been stressful lately. God's really testing me.

But no matter how hard things are, I am grateful every day for the fact that I am at LSU, surrounded by amazing people, with so much beauty in my life.

I'm especially grateful that I don't have to deal with C being at boarding school anymore. Long distance relationships are no joke.

I never realized how much stress last year actually came from struggling to make it work every day, when I probably only had about 5 minutes to talk to him on the phone. I admire the families of the military so much because it is so difficult to love from a distance.

But we overcame it.

Love and peace of Christ be with you tonight.

slow down, you crazy child

It's been a while since I posted because midterms have had me frazzled.

I should be studying right now. Later on though I'm going watch a movie at a friend's apartment. :] I'm confident in this decision, however. Because this time last year, I felt kind of like this:

Which happens to be one of the worst feelings. Ever.

Now, I feel like this:

I thank God every day for my friends...the old and the new, the ones who know me inside out and the ones more like acquaintances, the ones who are near and the ones who are far. Because they are all amazing and they all accept me, for me. And I never feel alone.

spot the differences?

Attention, world: I just made Edward Cullen look exponentially hotter.

Lightning bolt scars are in this season. Y'all thank the Potter boy.

(By the way, Harry, wherever you are, I miss you terribly.)

And yes, this has been my second post today.

what will YOU celebrate?

I was pretty down earlier, because I made a B- on my English paper. It's the second paper of the semester, and it's my second B in the class. In English. Which, you know, is my major. Considering I'm horrible at pretty much every other subject, it's quite discouraging to be stumped in this class.

I griped about it on Facebook, and my lovely friends came to my rescue, as always. So, I'm determined to be cheerful the rest of the day.

Know what helps?

The fact that Caroline and I are going to my happy place in a mere 90 days.

Today, I am celebrating the fact that I am good at English, even if it isn't showing right now.

What will you celebrate?

Went to Lafayette today to visit the bff. :] It was pretty cool, except for the part where I'm currently riding on a spare tire and can't go over 60 mph, so everyone was angrily honking at me during the 70 mph stretch. Mehh. People need to chill out.

Anyway I basically listened to Disney music for an hour and a half straight. Came across this little beauty on my iPod, from the 1971 classic Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

"When you rush around in hopeless circles
Searching ev'rywhere for something true
You're at the age of not believing
When all the "make believe" is through

When you set aside your childhood heroes
And your dreams are lost up on a shelf
You're at the age of not believing
And worst of all you doubt yourself

You're a castaway where no one hears you
On a barren isle in a lonely sea
Where did all the happy endings go?
Where can all the good times be?

You must face the age of not believing
Doubting ev'rything you ever knew
Until at last you start believing
There's something wonderful...
Truly wonderful in you"

How sad. Age of not believing? I must've miraculously skipped that stage in life.

Also, I made this tonight:
Um, yes, it tasted as good as it looks.

Fall break will be over much too soon.
