Tumbleweed Thanksgiving - Bishop family 2013 (Santa Elena canyon, Big Bend National Park) (at Big Bend National Park)
At work, listening to Gregorian Chants echo mystically through the library. There are so many reasons why I love my job. ^~^
I said I wouldn’t. I said, Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, and Revolution were enough.
I said I would resist.
Why does my boyfriend have to be so convincing?
This is how you art
I know what I’m doing in my next livestream…
“Don’t mess up don’t mess up don’t mess uaaAAAAGGHHHH-“
I knew I was doing SOMEthing right!
Well, they say to never paint a newborn’s room yellow. Yellow is an “angry colour,” they say…
This is why they say those things…
Not really sure yet. Maybe I’m back; maybe I’m just dropping in for a visit…
Honestly, I haven’t exactly missed all this tumblr nonsense. I do quite enjoy having my free time back, even though that has dwindled significantly since college started. This first semester has been truly fantastic. Brilliant, even! I can hardly recall any other extended period in my life in which I have had so much fun. I miss my family, yes. More than I can really put to words. But here is a new life; a new family. It’s enthralling, to say the least.
You see, I’m never not busy. I’m in two orchestras and a quartet. I’m part of the Newspaper crew. I’m in the Archery club. I work at the school’s library and am in the Honor’s Program. I have a brain-twin with whom I play Scrabble and brew Paridoxi-tea every Friday. I’ve seen Gaelic Storm in concert, and plays galore. I’m developing a work-out routine. I’ve stumbled, completely by accident, into a relationship that is almost impossibly good. I’m starting another book and finishing my second. I’m going on girls’ nights in the city and hikes in the woods. I’m exploring my self and my abilities. It’s glorious. Though, I do admit…on top of all this adventure, there is a bucket-load of work. My school is a liberal arts school, which means an abundance of essays. I wouldn’t have it any other way - hell, I’m an English major! But it does take quite a bit of time and effort…especially when it comes to doing enough research to make it legit. All in all, my time here has been highly profitable.
In other news, it’s getting brisk over here. 32 degrees in the middle of the afternoon. Sure, some northerners may scoff and declare that to be a mid-summer temperature, but for me this is excellent. Not to mention, the leaves here stay red for a while before falling - it’s been beautiful for the past week - and once on the ground they become crunchy and crisp because the atmosphere is so comfortably dry. No humidity. Well, there is the occasional weird day when it feels like spring in Houston, but no matter. I can deal.
I’m not entirely certain why I came back for this post. I’m really not interested in coming back for good… the reason why I left was because I was spending WAY too much time here and not focusing on my life or my family. I didn’t care for that at all. I was wasting the best time of my life on a computer screen. I don’t want that again. So for now, this is just a quick hello. I’m still alive and very happy. And if I do not return again, then thank you for your follows and have a very Happy Christmas.
It’s been fun.
