The Poetry That Is Life

Trying to find the beauty, the poetry, in every moment



No estoy cansado…o casado. hahahahah

How am I going to fit a semester’s worth of Spanish in 3 hours??  Yikes.  I realllly don’t wanna pull an all-nighter.

My dorm room is very lonely.  I don’t like this whole let’s-spend-nine-months-making-strangers-family-oh-its-may!-now-we-have-to-leave-everybody-and-go-home business.  Not in the least.

Especially since at the moment I have no plans for the summer, and no meaningful/productive way to spend my time.

Also, I just realized something about my last post.  I knew something would slip my mind.  I don’t want anyone to think that my only friends are Spring Break-ers or ChiOs.  I’ve made many other wonderful friends who are dear to me, and if they happened to read this I wouldn’t want them to think that I think any less of them.  All my friends are loved, I have been blessed by them all.

Whoever penso of final examenes on viernes antes de verano necesitas…

(Translation:  whoever thought of final exams on firday before summer needs…)

well, let’s just say I don’t like that person A T ALL, and I question their sanity. :///


1/4 of the way finished?….

I soooo should have been keeping up with this better than I have.

This always happens to me when I keep a real journal as well.  I get so busy with life that I can’t keep a record of it.   And then I get to the point where there is no way I can completely catch up.

I should either be packing or studying Spanish right now.  Or attempting to exercise lunch off.  But I feel the need write.

It’s almost been a year since I graduated high school.  I’ve gone through two [amazing] semesters of college and have changed and grown so much, and I think (and hope) I’m a better person for it. 

Here’s the lowdown on a couple of happenings:

Arizona was quite a while ago now, but I can’t even begin to tell you how much it blessed my life.  Spring  break was seriously so epic that the Spring semester really seems like it was two semesters because the halves were so different.  It was such a blessing to get to work with the amazing group of people I got to work with.  I could go on and on, but basically what it comes to is that I have a new family because of the experience, and built relationships that I am confident will last for a long time.

I have also been so blessed by my sisters in Chi Omega Pi.  (I still haven’t ultimately determined who the audience of this blog will be, but if anyone who happens to read this has the opportunity, you should get to know them, they are fabulous! :P)  I am so thankful that God led me to a club that is so diverse, so fun-loving, so creative, and most importantly that loves Him so much.  I feel like I could go to my sisters for anything I needed, and I have developed some wonderful friendships through the club as well.  I’m excited to serve them as Assistant Treasurer next semester.

By the way, any doubt I might have had (but never did) about being an English major was eradicated this semester.  I was studying for my English studies final last night, and actually enjoyed it.

The most important change for me this semester, and this entire year, has been the growth and change in my relationship with God.  I know that I was not this close to him when I started college, but I honestly don’t remember what it was like, nor do I have any idea how I ever made it through the day.  God has revealed himself to me in so many ways this year:  through the classes I’ve taken, through the people I’ve met, throught the events I’ve experienced, and of course through his word.  He has taught me about myself, about relationships with people, and about Himself.  He has humbled me, He has strengthened me, and He has blessed me beyond anything I ever deserved or ever will deserve. 

I am going through a semi-confusing stage in the process of growing closer to Him right now, so any prayers would be very much appreciated.  I know He is faithful and will reveal Himself to me.

All that being said, IT’S ALMOST SUMMER!!  I can’t believe it.  I am pretty pumped about getting caught up on sleep.  Right now I have absolutely no plans, and I’m not really excited or comfortable about that.  Again, prayers are always appreciated.  I don’t want my growth as a person to stop during the summer while I sit around and do nothing.  I’m hoping God will lead me to something productive to do this summer.

Simply Living

I still have so far to go…

Yet I am so thankful that I am where I am in my life.  Exactly where I am.  At the moment, I don’t think I’d change a thing.  Well…okay, there’s a couple of things that I might change given the opportunity, but they are very miniscule when looking at the entire spectrum. 

I am thankful for my friends (who are all oh-so-amazing), I’m thankful for my family (ditto).  I am so thankful that I can study what I want to study in the atmosphere in which I am studying it,  and surprisingly, sometimes I’m even thankful for the crazy busy-ness, ’cause in the end that means that I’m learning A LOT. 

I’m even happy and content with my relationship status because 1.) it gives me time to focus on the education that I am so excited/passsionate about 2.) when I DO have free time, I get to spend it with wonderful friends and 3.) I have no need for a relationship at this point because I have such an amazing relationship with my Savior.  He’s all I need right now. 

I’m happy 🙂

Side note:  5 days til AZ.  I’m excited.

I actually do really like George Herbert’s poetry…

I feel like such a typical college student, sipping coffee in the library, being all academic and such.  Leaning on God to maintain my focus, with Him I know I can finish this essay (and hopefully get some sleep tonight to boot).
