Grace is the sweetest thing I have ever known.
I got an email from Tumblr this week with a picture of a cupcake and a caption that said, “Yellow Friday Turns 3!”
So that’s exciting.
Also I’m back in Waterloo!
It’s only been 3 days and it’s amazing. I had a very different summer, with lots of big ups and downs. Being back at school is everything I needed after this summer. I moved into a lovely townhouse with 4 close friends, 2 who I have lived with before. Couldn’t ask for a better situation.
Oh and I guess I have to start writing essays again next week… haven’t really thought about that yet.
Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair.
- Gilbert K. Chesterton
"I just explained to him that I loved him. I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know much about him, but I did love him."
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” - 1 Peter 4:8
Through a series of random events, I am house-sitting/cat-sitting for two weeks for a couple living in Waterdown.
I was really unexcited about it. I hate being home alone for one night, so being in a stranger’s house alone for 14 nights did not sound like a fun time to me. But you know what? I’m liking it better than I thought. Sure, maybe it’s because my expectations were so darn low. Actually that’s probably mostly why. But as it turns out, there are a lot of pros to having a house to yourself.
First of all, I get to listen to music as loud as I want, all the time. Hopefully the cat doesn’t mind.
Also I have a lot of hobbies I do alone. For example, I’m reading about 5 books right now. An empty house is good for that. (I know you’re thinking that must be really quiet, but I have music on, remember?)
Am I the only one who gets excited about other people’s food? Every family eats a little differently. This couple happens to be particularly creative with their food, and I’m allowed to eat whatever I want. I’ve been snacking on specialty flat breads with expensive jams, dark chocolate with sea salt, nuts and candy, sparkling water.
I guess I’m discovering my inner introvert through this all. People get weird when they live alone too long, and I’m understanding why. I already feel somewhat selfish and particular with my new space. But for a while, it’s actually kind of fun.
