I have been terribly busy lately. I moved once, and have since moved again, this time into university. Even though I've had a lot to do, it has so far been very enjoyable and I am happy to be here! I'm 8 hours from the city in which I grew up, but I'm already happier here than I have ever been. I feel like I fit in with the culture here much better than I did before; I'm suited to smaller towns, the warmer and friendlier people, having fewer commodities at one's fingertips but the ability to grow closer to people and to a community... it's wonderful! No one from home seemed to understand why I wanted to come here, but I know it's the right place for me.
I'm majoring in secondary education with certification in English and social studies, something which I care immensely about. Teaching has always been my passion, and when it comes to history and literature in particular... I cannot think of anything more important to study. These two things in concert create a whole understanding of humanity. We learn best by example, and history is all of the past experiences of people-- and then, the thoughts and feelings of those people can be understood through the stories they create. I'm so lucky to be here on scholarship to be able to pursue my dream! I'm thankful for that, every day. I'm going to do my best!
Today I've had this song stuck in my head all day. I love it dearly! Especially lately it's been special to me.
Please enjoy it!
I had to use my Free! icon because... I just got caught up on Eternal Summer. <3 I had been wanting to set aside time to write some more, since I haven't done that lately and it's quite necessary for the maintenance of my sanity, but... the most recent episode is better than any fic I could ever write! It's a delight. My OTP is so canon I can hardly even stand it. ^^
I miss my dog... I wish I could have a dog in the dorms! Currently I'm satiating myself with owning a large quantity of fish. That's good enough for now!
That's all for now! I'll update again sooner, I promise. ^^
