First Bailey’s… now this. The Irish just get it.

My roommates and I definitely got ripped off for this “view of downtown Raleigh” in our apartment. But with just a few months left before we move out, I’m going to miss my slow mornings with my tea and bible - looking out this view across campus and to the library, the bell tower, and the handful of tall buildings downtown. This is one of the reasons why I love this town. At first glance, it’s nothing special nor romantic. Not shiny or bedazzling like New York City. But it grows on you in its own way. What a perfect little college town it’s proven to be. Not a place for tourists but something only the locals learn to appreciate. I think I’ll really seize my last year of college in this city and savor every little bit of it while I can. After all this place helped mold me into who I am the past 3 years… Looking back, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Here's to the good times.: A letter to the Wolfpack -
Dear past, present & future members of the Wolfpack,
First of all, put down the textbook, the highlighter, the pens, and the notebook full of ‘class notes’ and doodles. Put down the iPhone, the iPad and the Starbucks cup — and breathe.
I’ve been there.
You may be a high school…
ugh I cried. Written by a good friend of mine.
Found out last week that I’ll be interning in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill over the summer :) God is so good! When people asked me what I wanted to do, I always told them I wanted to work for the government. And I never thought I’d see the day when I actually would. I can’t even comprehend that I’ll be living in DC - a city I’ve visited often and always told myself I’d be back in one day for good. Can’t believe that even in the midst of my doubt, He was faithful like He promises to be. All the streets and cafes of Georgetown that I’ve fallen in love with, the beautiful paths of the national mall I wanted to run, the government buildings I captured on camera to reminisce on, can finally be apart of my daily life all because He saw it fit. My heart is so full of joy and gratitude.
My little cup o’ joe
He smiled understandingly—much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced—or seemed to face—the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey. —
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
1) Can we just pause for a moment to thank God for great writers like Fitzgerald?
and 2) I seriously can’t wait any longer for the movie to come out. Leo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby… Dear Lord.
Vans, my favorite coffee shop in Perth. I still crave your chocolate-powdered cappuccinos.
