We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace.

"Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it."
"Nobody knows your limits better than you do, but every once in a while somebody will question all you know, and they will push you for the better."

Jimmy Sanchez, one of the 33 Chilean miners who have been trapped for over two months in the San Jose copper-gold mine in the Atacama Desert, would like to make one small correction to all the stories about life in the mine:“There are actually 34 of us,” the nineteen-year-old miner wrote in a letter sent up from the mine on Tuesday, "because God has never left us down here."
How wonderful is that? It warms my heart, it really does. Read the rest here.

2. Today I wish I was lounging on a warm, sunny beach. The beach makes me unbelievably happy, unbelievably content. I could use a day where I could be happy and content and not have it interrupted by anything else going on!
6. Something I can never pass up at the grocery store is an Us Weekly with a story I'm interested in on the cover. I usually try to skim it quickly in the checkout line rather than buy it though...it's so much more worth my money to not buy a few magazines and buy a book I want instead.

"You can only be lost if you fall under the illusion that you know your destination. We are all wandering in wonder..."
I love this. Not only is it reassuring to hear that there's someone else out there who believes that you can be okay with out a plan (this is especially comforting to someone like me who struggles to function without plans), but I love when someone eloquently states a thought that has been wandering aimlessly through my brain with trouble turning into something coherent.
Last year at this time, I was probably already behind on my homework. Spending time with the boyfriend took precedent over my studies, something that I will definitely learn from. He's one of those naturally smart types who can basically look at the book and absorb information via osmosis.
So that might be exaggerating. But that's how I felt.
This year, I am ahead of the game in the homework department. I spent the weekend doing assignments, reading, and preparing myself for this week's classes, and am caught up through Wednesday. This took a lot of determination and focus, but I'm proud of myself for getting through it all...it's kind of nice to be able to come home after class and not immediately have to start working again.
Last year at this time, I thought I had it all figured out.
This year, I don't.
And that has made all the difference.
