So, my friends, it has been a little while since I last wrote here, and a new semester in college is to blame for that one. While the amount of classes I am taking is normal, the schedule has been crammed into two days, making me unavailable then, and then loaded with homework for the next several days, especialy Wednesday, which is my day in between classes AND church activities all smunched into one. Oi! But, regardless, I am sruviving quite well, it seems, and am keeping ontop of everything. I seem to have some great professors, and the classes are fun and right up my alley. I'm doing more creative writing for this English class, which thrills the eloquent side of my mind to no end, and my Humanities class encouragest being artistic, too. In fact, I've been placed into a literary group there. We're to make a magazine as a class project based off of something that stands out to us in each chapter. Fun things ahead there, I do believe.
As you can tell, I've been pretty busy. Very busy, to say the least. I'm hoping to get a hold of this schedule and find out soon if it would be possible for me to apple for a part time job in a salon, but looking at everything from now, I may not be able to. It could end up meaning I sacrifice my grades...which wuld hurt, seeing as I would like to hang onto that 4.0 I got last year.
So it is certainly a time for prayer, and I have been working on that very much as well. Trying my hardest to finish a prayer and not fall asleep in bed at the end of the day like I have done a few times so far. I'm trying to start praying earlier and earlier so that the chances of me falling asleep while I'm talking to God will slim down...but then everyone wants to be around me because they haven't seen me all day, so there's that. I'll get that balance worked out soon.
No pictures today, I'm afraid. I haven'lt had anything exciting to photograph, save for a few selfies taken in a slaphappy moment between me and my sister. I could write pictures worth a million words about what I see at school between classes, but that would freak people out. It freaks me out. It's very odd, very odd.
I can't think of anything else to update you all on at the moment. I'm on my tablet, so excuse any odd typos you find. The keyboard is significantly smaller than what I'm used to, so an extra key may slip in here and there. This should come in handy for English class, though, since the classroom has no computers in it to write on. Haha!
Dinner seems to be getting close to being done, so I'm off to feed the younger mouths!
Have a great Saturday, everyone! <3

It's been cold here, too. Very cold, and it's supposed to get even colder. This means that anything that collected the rain we had back in December has frozen over. Most of these containers have branches, leaves, and plants in them, making for very interesting photo opportunities. The ice in the fire pit attracted me first. It's full of branches and leaves that had been tossed in to burn sometime back, now resulting in a unique arrangement of preserved greenery and trapped air bubbles. If I could keep ice in a jar for decorative purposes, I would do it without a second thought....I may even put moss in the bottom of it! Next I saw that my mom's bog plant barrel had also frozen over, and the beautiful pitcher plants were sticking straight out of the ice. It was quite beautiful in a simple, frozen way, and I was glad I could capture it.
Random other little pretty things caught my eye as I wandered about. After a while, I eventually turned my eyes to the darkening sky. A winter storm is on the way, and in the distance I could see the cloud warning of upset. The way they bubbled, darker than the rest of the skyward blanket of cotton, spoke of snow, something we don't get much of around here except by freak accident. Time to settle in for the night and wait out the ice and very freezing temperatures.
At the moment, I am snuggled down at my computer with a hot cup of tea, still feeling inspired from finding the life still in winter.
Have a happy Sunday, everyone! Stay warm and safe, especially with it getting so cold! ♥
