It is snowing today in my quaint little area of the mountains, and for the first time all winter I am really enjoying it. Everything looks so clean, and there is a decadent blankness to the light that makes me feel like there’s a chance that everything will be ok. I really needed the snow day today, and I am currently relaxing with excellent friends while we listen to (hold on, let me check) the Cruxshadows. Fun.
I haven’t posted in a while, I have been swamped with school and personal dramas. But it’s been alright, because for the first time in my collegiate career, I feel like I’m actually learning things. I feel like I am acquiring new skills and stretching myself. This is mostly due to the excellence of the professors at Montreat, and I owe a lot to them.
In addition to academically stretching myself, I am also stretching myself on a personal level. I am involved heavily with Student Government and politics on campus, and I am learning about how to deal with people, especially those who are different from me.
It’s been a lot to handle, but I’m still here, and still hoping that things can turn out alright.
Waxing philosophical today,
