When homework is fun, school isn’t too shabby, my friends. My favorite class, by far, this semester is Photo Journalism with Mr. Heller. I’m still a little intimidated, and probably will be for the rest of the semester, because of all the cool Journalism majors (shout out to my girl Jessie Hoaglin) but I am eating up everything we talk about. I love it. We had our first intro-ish project due today. Basically, we had to turn in six pictures with a little creative spin that told a little bit about who we are, our personality, what we’re about, etc. complete with captions/explanations and taped on a poster board. It was kind of fun to actually have a “project” for school instead of yet another paper so I thought I’d share a little digital version of what I turned in…
Anyone who knows me well knows that I tend to be a slight hypo-chondriac on my off-days. I attribute this to my tendency to be slightly dramatic. Oops. Oh, and this is one of my favorite candles. Hilarious. Hey, one loses many laughs not laughing at oneself.
One of the pictures had to have my face in it. I thought I’d take one of me on my favorite/only back-porch-swing I’ve ever owned–errr rented. I love this backporch. So many dance parties, lots of laughter, and great conversations have occurred on/near this swing.
This is my favorite wall in the Cheetah. Mainly because it has pictures that capture the personalities of all my roommates. From snow days, to lake days, fort-chillin’, to being dressed up like divas, to posing with the Washington Monument, and eating out like queens at Parkside or Sonic, I love that this wall holds so many dear memories with sweet friends!
I love tickling the ivories, if you will. I’m no prodigy, but I absolutely love sitting at a piano and playing for hours til my wrists give out.
I love calendars, I love agendas, I love organization. Even though I rarely look at my planner throughout the day, I love writing in it. Can’t pencil in things that will be going down much past May though. SHEEEESH. Help me, Rhonda. Someone please freeze February, will ya?
I’ve recently figured out that I’m quite the morning person. I love waking up early and drinking coffee (or if no one’s made coffee, I’ll drink hot tea #mooch), eating some b-fast, spending time with Jesus in his words to me, and just being quiet. It roots me as to what my purpose is, it reminds me my need to live in dependence (as opposed to independence), and spurs in me a longing to know him more. Oh, and I absolutely love sitting at our kitchen table in the morning. The sun peaks through the trees and warms our otherwise freezing house. It’s pretty great.
School is cool, people! Happy Humpday.
