Without me stopping to say hi.
That rhyme happened mostly by accident, and it's testament to where much of my week has been spent: with my nose in books (including poetry ones), beginning properly on my road to a bachelor degree. In a small way I was sort of terrified at the thought of studying after a massive break, and I wondered if I'd even known how all this stuff works. But so far, I am completely loving it. Lectures! Assignments! Set readings! Textbooks! Oh my.
My first week of term has also helped me decide on a minor. My major, creative writing, was always a firm choice. But what to minor in? So many options! Well, being a humanities degree through a Christian college, my core units focus on a smattering of most of the humanities subjects -- including theology and history. And the taste test I've had of the history units so far has convinced me that this would be an ideal complement to my major. So I'm ready to be immersed in the stories of God and humans throughout the centuries. It's exciting stuff!
This morning at dawn, my sister and I waved off half of our family as they flew away for a few weeks of pure winter in Tasmania. This big house feels rather lonely with just the two of us here, but we have Plans. Tomorrow, for example, an onslaught of girlfriends are coming for dinner and snacks and the delicious newest BBC Sense and Sensibility. Also tomorrow: shopping and a used bookfest. And in a few weeks, we're anticipating the visit of five sisters for some solid catch-up time. Girliness abounds!
What are your weekend plans? Tell me something awesome.
PS. Has anyone else noticed that there's so much love in the air it's turning slightly pink?
