I am attempting to write what should be one of the easiest papers I've ever been assigned, but I'm finding it difficult. It's snowing outside, my coffee is wonderful, and there are people I'd rather be talking to right now. It will get done, but not at this exact moment.
The typical beginning-of-the-semester post had to come, but I'm still not sure how I feel about what is to come. What I do know is I feel like I'm in a good place. I don't have a clue why I feel that way, but I'm happy so I'm not questioning it. I miss Rebecca and Kristen. I miss the impulsive behavior and the melodramatic analysis of events. I even miss the pessimism. Belmont is something different without them, but I've been given a peace about the way things are. Plus, I know we're better friends than to let distance kill what we've got. While I haven't by any means found replacements (nor am I looking for any such thing), I've entered into new friendships I'm excited about and I've found new dimensions in other relationships. I think the semester looks promising for good times and good friends.
We'll see how the school thing goes, but for now I'm enjoying the happiness. Thank you, God, for an undeserved and overwhelming peace.
