Life Lately

Hellllooooo September! Happy to see ya again (: 

Geez, it has been a busy several weeks. Settling into a new place, starting school again, and just generally trying to adjust; I’m exhausted. I’ve hardly had time to breathe, must less write a new post. I feel so sad I’ve neglecting my little blog. As I write this, I realize just how much I've missed writing for myself and sharing it with the ones that mean the most. 

These past few weeks have been filled with incredible joys but also feelings of loneliness and being homesick. Living on my own in a completely new city, not knowing a soul was (and continues to be) incredibly hard for me. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about my home. I miss my family and friends so incredibly much (low key tearing up rn), but the good Lord has given me so much strength in those times of isolation and uncertainty. He is SO good!! 

I’ve moved into the cutest little apartment down the street from my school. Mama G decorated the entire place and it looks just like a Melli Pinterest board, I love it! Just think: colorful, polka-dots and gold accents; that's my apartment! ☺

Going out of my comfort zone and meeting new people has been a challenge, but I continue to cross paths with some of the most amazing people. Every single person that I have met has been so kind and welcoming to me. The drivers are a little crazy here, but I feel like that's the same everywhere ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I haven’t ventured too far, but the places I have been to are really neat. My favorite would have to be the Short North area. It's kind of like Lubbock’s Broadway area, but chicer and a lot longer, with more places to visit. On second thought, it's nothing like Lubbock’s Broadway ha! 

Wait, did I just diss Broadway?! This West Texas gal must be turning to an Ohioan, friends! It's crazy! You'll always have a special place in my heart though, Bway ♡

School is something else. Holy cow, I think to myself every day “what have I gotten myself into?!” But really… wHaT?! I’m too busy/ stressed/ tired to even think about the fact that I am a law student. Is this even real? Can’t dwell on it too much though, Torts homework is calling my name *insert unamused emoji face here*. 

In all reality, I’m enjoying being here and learning something new. It's totally different from undergrad in a way that I can’t quite explain yet. I loved most of my undergrad classes, but my classes now are something on a completely different level. I got cold called on my first week of classes and nearly pooped my pants. My nerves completely engulfed me; I think I blacked out purely from fear. More on this later... 

Through all the hurdles I’ve faced these past several weeks, I can say with every fiber of my being that I am 100% incredibly happy here. I don't know if I’d feel the same had I chosen another school. I know the Lord has been with me every step of the way & that He’s guided me here for a purpose. 

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11

I'll try to be more engaging and post more! I really do love having my own little blog. It really does give me so much happiness to have a creative outlet!

Also, how freaking talented is my sister! She took all these pictures! WOW, love you sestra!  

Thanks for reading friends! Leave a comment and catch me up on the buzz in your life, pls & thx. luv u k bye!!! ت
