year abroad :: the glory of fall

Today I am totally feeling Autumn and all things Halloween. I am in no way party to celebrating evil spirits etcetera etcetera but I love a good spooky bash. The release of Stranger Things 2 is only aiding the spooky feels, and the current burn-out stage means a good binge in bed (with a sick…

year abroad :: emotion

A month in now. More than a month. And that just seems crazy. Raging hormones, slight homesickness and just general frustration at life have led me for the second time this week to sitting on a park bench crying. But, I have the best view. The bench overlooks a gorgeous old tree whose trunk is…

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…

faith :: church hop pt.2

So after a packed morning at Kings, Sophie dropped a beautiful bombshell...We're having roast dinner at mine. Oh yes. I hadn't had a roast dinner in SO long so I was so excited. And it was so good, and lovely to meet Sophie's parents too, who are equally as bubbly and hilarious as Sophie. And,…

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends."Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will never…
