New Years Resolution, Part 1

So.... for pictures and to see my life updated far more often than here at The Half Eaten PB&J, check out my new co-blog keepyourloveletters.blogspot.com

Jessie and I decided to make a new years resolution to take at least a photograph a day, and to spur that on, we decided to start a blog together! Each of us will be posting a new photograph every day and eventually, I think our plan is to get into techniques and writing and all kinds of fun stuff, but we'll see what happens. So go take a look!

It never rains when you want it to

I feel completely unsettled about this year.

I look back on it and I say, "I have no clue where this year went," and I feel as though I've been so busy that I've forgotten to enjoy it. At the same time, I look at this year and see all of the things that I didn't accomplish and only see my wasted time when I was busy enjoying.

I happened to be listening to Norah Jones just now and this song was on in the background. I feel like the chorus part is a cry from my soul somedays, and other days I'm in total awe of, well, everything.

Norah Jones - Humble Me
Went out on a limb
Gone too far
Broke down at the side of the road
Stranded at the outskirts and the sun's creepin' up

Baby's in the backseat
Still fast asleep
Dreamin' of better days
I don't want to call you but you're all I have to turn to

What do you say
When it's all gone away?
Baby I didn't mean to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
I'm on my knees empty
You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
So please, please, please forgive me

Baby Teresa she's got your eyes
I see you all the time
When she asks about her daddy
I never know what to say

Heard you kicked the bottle
And you helped build the church
You carry an honest wage
Is it true you have someone keeping you company?

What do you say
When it's all gone away?
Baby I didn't mean to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
I'm on my knees empty
You humble me Lord
You humble me Lord
So, please, please, forgive me
You humble me

It's just a bunch of B.A.

It's scary to make decisions that can change your life.

As many people know, I decided over the summer that I wanted to study abroad in England for my final semester as an undergraduate. I will not be doing that now. Instead, I will be attending SDSU for my final semester, and will add a Spanish Major to my degree. In the summer, I will travel to Valencia, Spain to study abroad, and will graduate in August with both a B.A. in History and a B.A. in Spanish. So that's my big news. I'm very very excited for it, and be prepared to hear more when my Christmas cards come out :)

God Bless,
