It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this homesick. The air here feels so foreign as though it has invaded, not I. Longing for a way back.


Trip to the library


This afternoon, after having a long and lovely lunch with one of my church mummas, I took a trip to my nearest library to 1) renew my card, and 2) pick up some reads for the next month. As the summer ends, I realize I am slowly quickly going to have zero dollars to my name. A library card seemed like the smartest move for my future reading endeavors! YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LUCKY I WAS. I don’t know how high-in-demand this book is but I walked in and on the top shelf of the ‘New & Notable’ section was Jojo Moyes The Girl You Left Behind – AHH! Needless to say I’m really excited about this one. After not being able to emotionally attach myself to any book after falling in love with her other novel, Me Before You, I can’t wait to get started.

As you can see through Goodreads I’ve got a few more amazing books on my ‘to-read’ shelf, but I am always looking for opportunities to expand my horizons. Let me know what you’ve recently added to  your reading lists and if there are any you think I should read too.


Fuck this!

My life is not going how I want. I’ve been living by the rules of everyone else and not pleasing myself, which is, I realize now, a fucking huge mistake. I’m going to revamp my life in this month before school.

My plan is to spend the mornings working on my body. Workouts, nourishment, getting things the way I want them again. Second, I’m going to work on my mind. I’ll spend some time analyzing my thoughts, relaxing, meditating. Lastly, I’m going to work on my relationships with those around me. I’ll reconnect with God, my true Father, who never leaves and always walks beside me. I want to build a stronger relationship with my Mum – It would be nice to let my guard down once in a while at home.

Mostly this will be about myself. I’m realizing that having a place where I can be completely myself is lovely 🙂 I hope to look back in a year and see the progress in myself – hopefully I’ll be happier and healthier.

SIDENOTE: Bare with me as I finish my next book and review it. It has been tricky to start a new book after Me before You – that book has stuck in my head and slowly become part of me.
