Having not written a post in sixteen days, I'm here to say that I have not died. I may have not posted in the past two weeks, but I literally tried posting over seven different times. With assignments and textbooks piled higher that I am tall, (which really isn't so high) I've found it really difficult to think of something to say here. With so much school I know I should be doing, it's hard to do something like write a blog post. The truth is that I've been extremely busy, but I really haven't done anything interesting.
I'm a sophomore this year. You're probably thinking "yeah, but you're home schooled, you've got it easy!" I can't say that it's not easier than going to actual school, (since I've never experienced that) but sophomore year has come with much more work and challenges than freshmen year did -- and I thought that was hard! I'm having to stay on track and dedicated to every single subject in order to get it all done and still have time for things like reading and writing (and blogging!) later. As my friend Kaylee says, "it's been really hard to get back into school this year." Back to schedules, loads of work, less free time, and all that jazz. Basically, I've been prioritizing and it's taking a long time to adjust.
On a happier note, it's finally cool enough for hot chocolate and sweaters and sleeping with two blankets. Also: I have this new thing were I'm obsessed with waking up early. Watching the 6am sunrise through my window is so satisfying. I'm a night-owl and an early-bird. (This isn't the best of combinations.)
Here are some favorite shots from the past two weeks:
Sometimes life just happens and you don't have anything to say. Honestly, that's alright in my book. I don't always have the time to force myself to write something worth your time, so I'll post when the words are there. This autumn is taking a lot of adjusting, but I'm liking the feel of it so far. It's nice, being part of the changes for once and not just watching everything happen.
