You read it right! After 3 glorious, wonderful weeks of vacation, I went back to school. I had such a wonderful time with my family- celebrating Christmas, New Years, doing several photo sessions, and watching countless movies :) It was a low-key but really relaxing break and I loved it. It was hard to go back to school- even though I LOVE college, I still have that sinking “don’t-want-to-go-back-to-school” feeling. The first week back was a little hard- I was so tired every day! But I really like my schedule for this semester- it allows me to have more free time during the day because I now work mornings or evenings, instead of the middle of the day. My classes aren’t as exciting as last semester, but I’m still enjoying them and am taking every opportunity to embrace all the amazing opportunities I have every day here! I have more hope for this semester, this year of my life, than I have had in a very long time..perhaps more hope and freedom than I have had in my entire life. The Lord has been so good to me and I am living in His joy and freedom daily!
After that long intro, here are some photos from the week and a half I have been back on campus :)
1.13.13- On my flight back home! Because of my new, nifty iPod touch, I got to take all sorts of instagram photos from the plane. People must have thought that I was flying for the first time by the way that I was plastered to the window, taking tons of photos :)
1.14.13- First day of classes! This is me standing in an insanely long line at the bookstore, buying some very expensive books :)
1.15.13- This is my work! I love working here (except for at 8am ;)
1.16.13- This amazing thing happened- a magical place called The Chocolate Bar opened here at college. Oh my goodness. I went for the first time, did some studying, and enjoyed some hot chocolate and hazelnut gelato!
1.17.13- I think I go to the prettiest college in the world, especially when it snows :)
1.18.13- This is my favorite college meal! It’s a simple sandwich- brie, lettuce, and tomato. But the bread is AMAZING! I get this for lunch almost every day.
1.19.13- Froggy! This is my favorite stuffed animal :) Today was a bit of a rough day, just frustrating, but as I was trying to get through my psych reading, Froggy cheered me up by checking out the frogs on the textbook ;)
So there you have it! More about my weeks back at school than you wanted to know! Let me know how your weeks have been :)
