swing low, sweet chariot

Maybe it's my obsession with all things Civil War. Maybe it's the fact that I just finished a paper on Sojourner Truth. Maybe it's Zooey Deschanel's voice. But, whatever it is; this is beautiful.

Last weekend was magnificent. State College is a beautiful town and I had so much fun with Todd and Geoff; but I think my favorite part was the drive up there. Living in Philadelphia, I forget how much I love mountains and country roads. So freeing. Would it be cliche to say that I love fast cars and freedom? Is that socially acceptable? Eh, whatever, it's true.
It took a couple days for me to get back into the swing of things once I returned to Temple, but I'm good now.

It's nice to feel my Temple friends becoming more and more a part of my life with every day. While there are still some moments where I want to see Jayda and just talk to her, it's a good feeling to not have to rely on her as much anymore. She's still my best friend, no doubt about that, but it's nice that I can actually feel myself fully branching out and making my friendships at school more meaningful. It means a lot to me.

I feel like I'm in a really good spot right now and I truly hope that that is not a fleeting feeling.
I love my life. And my friends. And my family (who I get to see again in 3 weeks!).

Tomorrow is Friday, and this weekend should be a good one.
So much free/fun stuff to do. I'm determined to make the most of it.

I love my roommate. I love when he runs into my room just to give me a hug. I love that after a long nap, the first thing he asks for is food. I love that we can have a mini celebration at 3 am just because we finally made the decision to turn the air conditioner on. I love that our fridge isn't stocked with much, but it's never lacking multiple Arizona Iced Teas.
