over coffee // week nine

over coffee
I studied so hard this week. It was exhausting, but that just makes the weekend so much better. Today I have absolute nothing that has to be done, and it feels wonderful.

Somehow I made it through a whole week without posting on here, and I’m sorry. I wanted to post everyday but obviously that didn’t work out!

Even though this week was crazy busy, it had a few highlights… the first one was coffee with a new friend on Tuesday. The second one was Bible study on Wednesday. I went alone and it was so sweet, as was the drive home with all the windows down and the sunroof open. The third highlight was dinner with friends on Thursday, which may or may not have included an impromptu worship session on the deck, a few amazing tacos, and several beignets. The final highlight came yesterday… my mother bought a Canon Rebel XS camera body from our friend, and we’re both going to use it. Technically it’s hers though, because she payed for it ;) She already has 2 nice lenses for her film Canon, so it worked out great. I can’t wait to start learning how to use it on manual.

How was your week? Do you have exciting plans for the weekend?



I’m grabbing this week’s questions from Plinky.com, which, if you’ve never heard about it, is a terrific resource and springboard for people with writer’s block!

1 // Early bird, or night owl?

I’m sort of both. I like waking up early and now since school started I’ve been going to bed a little later than usual. Usually my family watches something on TV until 9:30, and it’s not unusual for me to stay up reading for another hour. I have to get the most time out of my days!

2 // What do you display on the walls of your home room?

Sweet photos of places and people I love, and one piece of artwork, which I made with Caitie last summer ;)

3 // Have you ever had a random encounter with a stranger that stuck with you?

I know I’ve had a few, but here’s the first one that came to mind: I’ve had this habit of smiling at practically everyone I see since I was really young. So once, when I was maybe 10 or so, I was sitting in a restaurant on Pier 39 with my family. We would always sit by the window, and the elevation was such that when you looked out of the window, the people walking by on the pier were below you. This particular time, I was looking out the window as usual, and an older gentleman with white hair happened to be walking by. I smiled (of course) and he totally stopped walking, smiled back like he knew me, and then waved. I just kept smiling, and then he walked past. Random? Yes. But I’ve never forgotten it!
