A song for your listening pleasure

I know I posted this on my facebook a little bit back but I wanted to put it on my blog as well. This is a song by Adele called "Hometown Glory." She has SUCH a beautiful, powerful voice [a little jazzy]. I've only heard a couple of her songs other than this one but I really enjoy it :)

I had my first day of class at John Tyler yesterday. It went well, I like my teacher. It's great to get back into the swing of things. I spent a couple hours doing homework at Cafe Cattura on Grove today with an iced honey spice coffee, twas relaxing. I'll start classes at WA on the 9th and that'll be a breeze this year. I really am loving anthropology and I'm excited to keep studying it! There are some quirky kids in my class.
Anyways, I had been stressing out a lot about colleges lately because I reeeally wanted to go to McGill in Montreal but I had a discussion with my parents about it and unless I can get a bunch of's not happening. Buuuut my family is still on board for the trip there next summer. So even though I probably wont end up going to school there, my parents informed me of a ton of possibilities for next year and really made me feel better. I told them how stressed I was about finding a school that I genuinely liked, getting my SAT's done, getting a job, making choices for my major, etc. and my mom basically told that I'm so stressed out because I'm looking at a ton of things at once, when I need to focus on one goal at a time. Right now, that's getting caught up on math and taking the SAT in the Spring. I've been working for Joni taking care of her kids every week for a while and planned on getting another job once the kids go back to school and my commitment was over (which it now is). But my parents said that if focusing 100% on school this year [specifically, math] meant not having a job for now, then they would support me with gas and stuff. I'm glad I have parents like that.
Moving on...besides doing organization work in Africa, I really would love to be a baker (but don't want to go to culinary school). So one of the options my parents suggested was going somewhere after I graduate next year and apprenticing under a baker (literally anywhere...even Montreal if I wanted!) I'm for sure not going to a university next year because of all my SAT crap and not having it done in time, but my parents really did make me feel better about taking a year off of school and all the neat things I could do. I feel really relieved after that talk with them.
Life is good. I'm happy :) And I'll go wherever the wind takes me

I know I pretty much just wrote a book...and if you read this whole thing, then...bless you :p
ps. listen to this song it'll get you stoked on life.

Feeling of emptiness.

Little pieces of me are leaving Richmond.
One by one.

I'm curious.

What is your most prized possession? Something that is non-living but maybe holds some sort of sentimental value?

When I think about college, I want to scream curse words. That's all.

"Get behind the wheel. Stay infront of the storm."

I do occasionally enjoy a rainy day. And the 40 song folk playlist I just made makes me feel happy. Today I didn't feel like going home after having lunch at Stoneypoint so I went for a drive out towards Goochland then took River back to Gaskins. It's a peaceful drive, especially on a day like this where it's drizzling and misty. Being out there makes me want a house in the country more than ever. Anytime I see a long path and a lot of land leading up to a home, I get unbelievably jealous. It's pretty much my dream. Imagining having all that grass to run around in and sweet forts(tehe) makes me feel like a little kid again. And the perfect thing about that area is that you're in the country but you can reach civilization in a matter of minutes. It's just...ahh. One day...

street art illusions

All of these are done with chalk and the artists that do these are CRAZY. It's just mind boggling to look at these pictures and consider that they are only (physically) 2d. Have a looksies!

I came across a verse I had written in a notebook a while ago and it's one of my favorites so I thought I'd share because it's uplifting.
"I always see the Lord in front of me.
      I cannot be moved because he is by my side.
       That is why my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices.
            My body also rests securely
             because you do not abandon my soul to the grave
                  or allow your holy one to decay.
 You make the path of life known to me.
      In your presence there is complete joy."
Acts 2:25-28
