under the sun

So I commend the enjoyment of life because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun. 
- Ecclesiastes 8:15

so, stop being so hard on yourself. get out there and grab this life by the horns.

little this, little that.

Books, love, a slight melancholia, and an overwhelming excitement for the next few months... I think it all fits rather well together.

my front porch...

my front porch this semester
has been a place for me
to laugh
to escape
to read
to breathe
to talk
to study
to embrace the sun
to kiss
to welcome
to take a nap
to reflect
to watch the seasons change
the cars pass by
the sun set
the squirrels and birds play

i'll miss it.

and ode to the family

There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.” 
- Cameron (Modern Family)

I've been writing this blog all semester for class, so I've been paying a lot of attention to the writing on Modern Family. Yes, it's a comedy. Yes, I've become a bit of a softy. But I love this quote from the Thanksgiving episode. Check out the blog if you, like me, love the Pritchett and Dunphy clans.

best post ever.

... juuuuuuuust kidding. 

Somehow another week is coming to an end and I still haven't unpacked from Thanksgiving. Two weeks from now, I'll be home. Strange.
Thanksgiving Break was really great! I did some fun things, studied and enjoyed time with family and my friends! Pretty typical.
Here's my Cousin, Mom, Sister and I!

Did I mention I ran my first 5K? It was awesome.

Went to my first NFL game- Falcons vs. Vikings at the GA Dome

My dad went Black Friday shopping at bought an Internet TV. I was on Pinterest, on TV.
