TOP TEN TUESDAY: Reading Week // What's Goin' On?
Happy Tuesday Folks! I always find that Top Ten Tuesday sort of speaks for itself, so I’ll get right into it.
Thanksgiving. To celebrate, my mom’s side of the family met up on Sunday afternoon for food and just to be together. And Monday night, my oma and opa came to our place for dinner and my mom makes the same amazing meal every year. I am so beyond thankful for my beautiful family! And last night I had a bit of salad, loads of turkey, sweet potato topped with peanut butter, turnip, and Brussels sprouts. I couldn’t manage any pumpkin pie, but I did make a blueberry crisp that I had some of! It was all delicious.
Food. Lately, as I’ve been heavily focused on increasing my variety, I have learned that I actually love sandwiches, and cereal, and have started to crave both of those foods again. I’m mad because I learned that I long time ago, but anorexia makes me forget. I’m loving Nature’s Path flakes with almond milk, fruit, and peanut butter for brekkie.
Thought. For some reason, even despite my favourite holiday, favourite season, and favourite month, I’ve been a little down lately. I really think that has a lot to do with the fact that there are some things that I haven’t done right. And I know I haven’t. I’ve made just some very personal mistakes with people, friends, just in my self and in a lot of ways. I just don’t feel like a stand-up person lately. I think a lot of that comes from being so overwhelmingly busy, with new people and new things, that making time for the things most important to me– MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS– has become difficult. I hate this and I guess am trying to find a way to balance it all and adjust to university! I love my life and university, and I love change, but I need to make it all work, ya know?
Noah. I can’t remember if I’ve blogged about Pie Sunday yet, but it’s a tradition that came about over a year ago (crazy), that basically brought a bunch of random people together, all whom are now some of my best friends. Last year, Noah, Sammy and I went to a party before Pie Sunday came to be and Noah walked me home and we were all still getting to know each other. This year, the three of us went to the same party, Noah walked me home, and we had amazing talks and it’s crazy how much all of us have changed and matured. I know I keep doing this with random friends, but this is a Noah appreciation post, because I’m really grateful for him and I think he knows why. I can tell him anything.
My Best Friend. OKAY SO MY BEST FRIEND CHLOE HAS GONE ON A BUNCH OF DATES WITH THIS GUY AND SHE DESERVES THIS MORE THAN ANY HUMAN BEING IN THE WORLD OKAY AND HE’S A NICE CUTE GUY AND SHE’S A 14.5/10 AND SHE IS HAPPIER THAN I HAVE EVER SEEN HER IN MY LIFE THE END.
Studying. SOO it IS Reading Week… and I NEED it. I made a study/writing schedule and sticking to it is the only way I’m going to manage to get everything done so yeah, that all better work out. After this post is up I’m scheduled to spend three hours writing a theology paper :)). I’m the type of person that needs everything written down!
Halloween. Is it just me, or does Halloween stress people out? Like, I stress about what I’m going to be and my costume and what party to go to and agh. Is that just me? I do love it but I want an awesome costume.
Leading Church. Last week I was very excited and lucky to help lead worship at the chapel at my school! I read Bible passages pertaining to the message and sang a solo (Psalm 126, which is beautiful, by the way). It felt great to be involved in a more traditional service again, though I now consider Embassy my primary church.
God Speaks In Seasons. I love fall. I love everything about it, from the holidays, to the weather, to the leaves– pumpkins and hay rides and wind. I just love it, and I really believe that God speaks to us through the weather.
Reminiscing. I was just talking to Noah about how crazy it is to me that it was a whole year ago that Pie Sunday came to be, and he said it feels like so long ago, like he’s known all of us forever. It’s so crazy how different our perspectives can be.
