all the things
— Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland (via observando)
I love this. Daily motto.
Sometimes, one must through caution to the wind and abandon homework for an adventure with good friends.
Tonight’s adventure looked like walking away from a very productive homework session to drive an hour to the beach, singing to The Lumineers at the top of our lungs with the windows down. It looked like running to the sand and sitting on lifeguard towers laughing at life. It looked like walking the coast and singing with my Creator. It looked like taking advantage of spontaneity and jumping into the ocean, fully clothed, holding hands with the best of them. It looked like ordering pizza at 10:30 and eating it before it cooled off. It looked like falling asleep on the shoulder of one of my favorites on the ride homework.
Oh the joy in my soul. Homework, I’ll come find you tomorrow, okay?
Say across the table from a very good (and very cranky) friend of mine tonight. We were being cranky and whiny because homework is a little drowning this week, and got on the topic of relationships. In my whiny state I said without thinking, “man, I just can’t catch a date.” My friend, cranky as all get out, spends the next twenty minutes telling me their point of view on the entire situation of dating while in bible college. And though harsh in a few moments, those words could not reign truer. Sometimes we just need people to sell it to us straight.
- I’m not doing anything wrong.
- There is nothing wrong with me.
- I and freakin’ 20 years old.
- Ultimately, God has His hand all over it.
Sweet hangs, and such a good way to procrastinate, even if I’m dead tired in the morning.
