Ten Things

IMG_88321. Syllabi always give me anxiety. The first week of school is a bombardment of syllabi from every class informing you of all the work ahead this semester. I have to remind myself to take a deep breath and reaaaaaxxxx…it will all get done.
2. I’m fasting today. I’ve never fasted before, but always wanted to try it as a spiritual discipline. Not too many hunger pains thus far I’m glad to report, although it’s only 10am haha! My goal is to make room for God to fill the space in my daily life. where food usually is.
3. I miss Germany. There, I said it.
4. I restrung my brother’s old guitar (a terrifying experience) and bought a capo. I even made my own pick out of an old credit card! I plan to shape up on my guitar skills this semester. It’s such a cathartic hobby.
5. My little brother is having a grand old time in Texas. He went to the first Baylor football game of the season and got to run across the entire field with all the other freshies before it began. I’m really looking forward to visiting him and my parents in Texas at the end of the month!
6. Loving the photos on this blog. Very inspiring. I need to get out and practice my photography.
7. I got a ticket for (allegedly) not stopping long enough at a stop sign back in May. I contested it and got a court date of August 31st. I showed up at 8am in Santa Monica, dressed to the nines, ready to argue my case before the honorable judge and courtroom. But then THE OFFICER DIDN’T SHOW UP! There is a god people, he is real. I got my $283 back– Christmas came early this year. You can see my celebratory Instagram post here.
8. Really want to get another tattoo (sorry mom and dad). Still thinking about what it might be. I know I want a German word and have an idea of where on my body I would like it. But the exact word is still in process.
9. The internet is really funny. I laid in bed for an hour today just scrolling through Instagram and laughing out loud by myself.
10. This article is hilarious and sadly true.IMG_8846

  1. It’s interesting that you say syllabi are stressful. For me they were always a relief because I knew exactly when I would have to do everything. They help me organize myself and my semester. It stresses me out more not having a syllabus because then the professor could assign anything at any time and I could be completely unprepared.
