describing unity.

Quote love: "And all the books you've read have been read by other people. And all the songs you've loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that's pretty to you is pretty to other people. And you know that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing 'unity'". Stephen Chbosky.

Hello! How have you been?

Silly Blogger. Not only did it quit on Thursday right as I had 18 different things to blog about, but Thursday was my 2 year blog anniversary. So, in lieu of a proper happy birthday for the blog (complete with singing in Dutch ((it's a family tradition)) and birthday cake), I'd just like to thank all of you for sticking around. You all mean the world to me, and I can't tell you how special it is when you take time to comment and tell me about yourselves, about your life...you are lovely.

I've been reading up a storm (mostly mediocre books, but there have been a few stellar ones in there too), working through my journal (first on the list today is leaving it in a public place. I cannot wait), and studyingstudyingstudying.

 My first final is today, and I've only just started to get nervous. The fact that I'm only now getting worried worries me. If you pray, prayers would be much appreciated. :)

Incidentally, I finished my drawing last night. I'll touch it up, finish darkening some of the edges, and then you can see it. I'm actually really, really proud of how it turned out. It looks so much better than I ever would have thought, and, to my surprise, it actually was an enjoyable experience.

Have a happy day!


  1. That quote is so perfect. I actually love that. And I love all of your photos so much too. Congrats on two years of blogging! I actually totally missed my third year blogging anniversary in April... Good luck on your finals! I'm sure you will do splendidly. :) I am so excited for summer, when I will actually have free time to read for pleasure and destroy my Wreck This Journal.

  2. Good luck on your finals, although I'm sure you won't need it--I bet you'll do great anyway.
    And love that quote.
