I'm not going to bother much with a recap of the year. You know most of it by now anyway. I made new friends. I lost old friends. I made even more new friends. I cried. I laughed. I learned a lot from God and my school. In the end, here I am still alive,… Continue reading Welcome to 2018
One of the things I enjoy doing is reading back through old journals of mine. Sometimes I laugh at them just because I can be an idiot sometimes, and sometimes I cry at them because God uses previous things He has said to me or I have said to me to speak to me. I… Continue reading Wisdom from Freshman me.
This Christmas has been the most relaxing, joyful Christmas I have experienced in a long time. There was a lot of love, a lot of family, and a lot of laughter. I got to see my Sister-in-law, and my young cousins. The food was amazing. I'll admit that despite my gluten allergy I did eat… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season–to rest
"So, Elizabeth, now that you're back. How was your semester? We're all curious since you quit communicating with us." Yeah, I am so sorry about that. I'm back now. I'll be keeping in touch with everyone pretty regularly since I'm on break. I can't guarantee that'll carry on into next semester, but I'll try. Now,… Continue reading Semester Recap

Running on deer trails through purple brambles, Gaining blackberry stains and small scars, Searching for buried treasure: Sun bleached… Continue reading Out On 27th 1/2 St. *Edited*
I mentioned this in a previous post, but now I want to breifly expand on it. Bullet Journaling is keeping an organized planner with various spreads of your own design. It does require a little creativity, but you don't need to be good at drawing or anything at all. I find it fun because it… Continue reading Bullet Journaling
I have just about everything to tell you. I went to a wedding a month ago. My brother's wedding. It was beautiful. I have a new sister now. I love her. I love them. Everyone is in love. It's great. Believe it or not, my life is a lot more organized than it used to… Continue reading Everything has happened. Be prepared for a slew of random thoughts.

One of my most favorite things is the rain. I was jumping around in the puddles in my shoes, singing "Open the flood gates of Heaven! Let it rain!" as it continued to rain harder.
