These days, I don’t seem to get out much. It’s been a month since I moved back into the dorms and it took until tonight for me to actually meet my floor-mates. I rarely see my friends anymore.
At times, flying solo is a bit lonesome. I go hours without talking to anyone but myself. It’s easy to let myself get all sad and mopey about this, but I do my best to remain positive. When it comes down to it, I don’t really mind.
After all, life continues to steamroll by and I’m moving with it. Even if there are moments when I wouldn’t mind company, I’m staying busy and thriving. I’ve been working hard and am ahead on homework. In the evenings, I’ve got Bible studies, prayer meetings, and worship nights to attend. Between work and study, I spend a ridiculous amount of time in the library. I’m organizing a letter-writing program for college students and elderly in the community for a group project. On Saturdays, I judge speech meets for the local high school team.
Then, there are quiet nights like this one. The homework is done, library shifts completed, the meetings have been attended and there is only me, my paint, a jar of Nutella, and a Wes Anderson film.
Life, my friends, is good.
