a little update on life..
i am still living with my wonderful and patient parents.
thankfully we have found a house and are trying to close on it.
(easier said than done.)
internet/cable is something that we have learned to live without. 
in the meantime though .. i am getting a lot of reading done.
have a wonderful upcoming week. 

beginning over

"and so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, 
just as things grow in fast movies, i had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
-- f. scott fitzgerald, the great gatsby
