After an extended break — yes, we are lucky here because school doesn’t start until February — of crocheting, watching all my favorite shows and a little bit of retail work it is wonderful to be back where I belong.
Back with people who find delight in freshening up new words. You can often hear “keen,” “delightful,” “swell” and a soiree of unfortunately forgotten sentiments around this place I call home.
Back where you find small gifts hidden, whether they’re chocolate, a handmade piece of art to adorn those empty dorm walls or a new, unexpected phone background.
Back where to-do lists can seem unending but you can find pleasure in having something to check off.
Having all these normal-to-me parts of life back after weeks of being with my wonderful family have left me feeling refreshed. I’m ready to take on what’s headed my way — classes, newspaper, finding a job and all.
I want to know how you’re doing, dear! What’s the most refreshing thing you’ve done this week?
