    Ain’t you thinkin’ what’s it gonna be like when we get there? Ain’t you scared it won’t be nice like we thought?

    No, she said quickly. No, I ain’t. You can’t do that. I can’t do that. It’s too much - livin’ too many lives. Up ahead they’s a thousan’ lives we might live, but when it comes, it’ll on’y be one.

    I’ve finally come to the realization that hey, it’s okay to be single. I was struggling with this for so long and you know what? I want to roam free. I want to hike every weekend and hammock everyday. I’m twenty freaking years old and I shouldn’t be spending my whole college life wanting to be…

    So this song is amazing. I am reblogging it because there are times when anxiety gets the best of me. This happens even after I have experienced some great life moments. I have taken an adventure this summer and the results were so great. But here’s the thing, adventures are amazing because sometimes they are a small escape from the normal life. When normal cones back - my heart sinks, and my anxiety rises. I want that adventure to be an every day experience or at least I want to learn how to live the normal life as more of an adventure. I want to know and love my life on a new level and I want to grow out of these normal experiences just as much as the adventures. So that’s why I am reblogging this song again - it’s a great reminder for living the normal as the adventure.

    I just took my final quiz for my grad school. Two years of my life is behind me, and I have a Masters in Education now! I cannot believe that I survived, two years of teaching and grad school at the same time. I did it! There was a moment this spring when this moment felt utterly impossible, and now its here!! 

    Now what do I do with my life?!

    #latergram This pic is from my drive home from NC last weekend. It’s the only pic I took while I was there. Not that I didn’t want to remember the weekend or didn’t see amazing places - but I was living in the moment. I am still a week later so thankful that I made this trip. I needed a vacation, and loved learning that I can make a solo road trip. Seeing another part of the country and visiting a friend who really made the weekend an adventure and fun was exactly the kind of vacation I needed this summer. #hocmeumcorestgratum

    Honestly, I never really thought what this day was going to be like - but now I want to mark it. After, two years of taking Grad classes consistently and teaching at the same time, I am working on my last assignment for Grad school. I will have my masters in a little over a week. I, who never really thought about getting a degree past a Bachelors, found something that was practical and challenged and I enjoyed learning more about. The amount of time I have spent in coffee shops for this degree and the friendships that have spawned from that time spent in those coffee shops were such a blessing in my life these past two year. God does take care of you and knows your heart so well, learning to live in that place, where you can trust His will and see what comes has been amazing. Here’s to my last weekend of Grad school work!! #hocmeumcorestgratum #lifeofahighschoolteacher #summer2k14

    "It’s quite an undertaking to start loving somebody. You have to have energy, generosity, blindness. There is even a moment right at the start where you have to jump across an abyss: if you think about it you don’t do it."
