I have noticed lately that I am not myself…lately I have not been the cheery, energetic young woman I tend to be. Even when it comes to emails, this blog, etc, I am not as creative or thoughtful as usual…I am absolutely worn-out, in every possible sense–emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally…I have so little energy, and I have been trying to simply rest the past few days.
On a much lighter note, I have been reading the “Anne of Green Gables” books again, simply because I have desired to read, yet did not want to read anything academic…they are quite fascinating, though simple, books to read. I am already on the 4th book, in 3 days 🙂
My mom and I watched the “Pageant of Peace and National Christmas Tree Lighting” on CSPAN on Christmas Eve; it was enjoyable, yet only served as a reminder of all that I have left behind in Washington. What a great experience we had there…I do miss that city so! I’ll return soon enough, I suppose.
Christmas was enjoyable, and I had a great time visiting with family I had not seen in almost a year. Of course, the question of whether or not I am to be married soon came up as expected. It was all in fun, and I know that they did not mean to make me feel badly about it, but part of me is still hurt in a way, because I long to find my “match” almost more than anything…I am patient, and I do trust that God has someone for me…yet the waiting grows wearisome. I am waiting, and I will continue to wait. LOL–if everyone else would only wait as patiently! 🙂
I love my family, and we had a great time yesterday, sharing, visiting, etc. My grandparents had me open my birthday present yesterday, though my birthday is still a few days away…and I am so excited! You may laugh, but they got me a professional flat iron for my hair–which costs A LOT of money. I am so excited! I love straightening my hair, and this will do such a great job.
I found out that I am living in the apartment complex I desired for my return to campus…so even though I will be living with new people, I think it will be okay.
Other than that, not much is happening in Red Bluff, as usual. Only 2 weeks until I return to LA and I am looking forward to it…:)
