Pausing Amidst Chaos

Life is hectic. Life is chaotic. Life is often tragic. Life is busy and complicated and dramatic.

But life can also be peaceful, beautiful, adventurous, simple, lovely, loving, and lighthearted.

Amidst all the chaos of life I feel drowned in, I'm taking this moment to remember a few small things that make me happy:

1. The man who makes me omelets at my college dinning hall, doesn't take my order anymore, I just say surprise me and he always makes me something delicious!

2. A bouquet of roses currently sits on my bookshelf, they were a gift from a friend who came to see my latest play.

3. My dorm room window faces where the sunrises, so I always wake up with the sun streaming through my blinds.

4. I've heard the first birds of spring chirping recently

5. Although they're far away, I know my family loves me.

6. Moments spent in prayer

These are only a few things that brighten each of my days. I know there are countless more.

What little things make your day?

Return of the Blogger

I decided to start blogging again. Me and blogging, have had one of those on again off again relationships. This time I think I'm ready for something a bit more serious.
I was one of the those overindulgent bloggers in middle school. You know, the ones who posted thousands of pictures of me and my best friends at the mall, and felt the need to tell the entire world about all the super OMG overdramatic details of my WHOLE life. I was also an HTML pro but somehow I've managed to forget everything I used to know about that.

Then post high school, on a warm sunny day I decided to try round 2 of the blogger world. It kinda worked for a little while, but then the chaos of college life took off. But blogging was always a source of catharsis that I seem to be lacking right now. So I thought why not try this again!

My mom, whom I love dearly, happens to be an avid blogger, and her blogs are another reason I thought I'd create a new one for myself.

Mom's blogs:

This blog is going to be about life, creativity, happiness, and so forth and so on.
I'll certainly post some DIY craft articles and promote my etsy site.

Heres to many great blogging adventures to come!
