year abroad :: frustration

*Disclaimer: This is along the lines of a rant.* I'm feeling a little regretful that I lost track of journaling my days here in Libourne, especially when it comes to a writing a new blog post, but when I'm alone, I just want peace. Or, my bed. I just want to shut my eyes and…

year abroad :: un mois

So as I’m nearly a month into living in the second motherland, I thought it about time for reflection. There’s so much to discover every single day, and it’s so exciting when something new happens. Just this past week, I’ve made an incredible friend and been introduced to so many other kind people, who treat…

year abroad :: short but sweet

Finally!!! I have time for a blog post. So I’ve officially been in France three weeks as of tonight. I can’t believe three weeks ago I was on a plane to Bergerac. I genuinely never expected to feel quite as home as this. Of course, it’s not simple. Every day there is something new I…

life :: impending

It is but four days now until I begin "living" in a country that's not my own. The excitement is rapidly building, and the things that I needed to sort are falling into place, as if they were designed to from the beginning. I'm already absolutely shattered from such a long, busy, yet totally freakin' awesome…

life :: return

So I have now officially moved back home for summer after a tremendously stressful yet enjoyable second year.  This year has tested me so much, but my faith is even stronger, new friendships have been made, and I'm happier than I've ever been.  It's going to be a stressful summer with SO much to get…

life :: preparation

Hey lovelies, it's so great to be able to post so much more often (thats a lotta adverbs there) on Kulayrosas.  I'm constantly looking for new material to write about, especially as my posts usually begin as a thought, are written out like a waffle, and then edited into something (relatively) cohesive. *face palm* So,…

life :: new beginnings

You could say that with finishing second year, life has slowed down. But in no way is that a reality. Despite summer beginning, and my 20th birthday passing (the Friday just gone Thursday eek!), I still find myself busy. But not "busy" busy, you know that kind of busy when you think you're busy but…

life :: back to it

{Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others.} Philippians 4:8 TLB. Whatever "it" may be to you, it's that time of the year again. The one I like to think of as Marmite you either…
