Where homesickness bumps frustration and they both trip over overwhelmed and land on emotion.

Thats where you can find me.

I have so much to say, so many things that I want to put up here so that I will have these stories on my blog so that I can come back and reflect on these moments of my life.
The things that I have neglected to blog but should be up here, like
My cousins coming to stay with me for a week,
Me moving on campus,
Me being moved my first week on campus,
Adjusting to the campus life and the crazy feelings that went with it,
My campus job, that I'm pretty proud of,
How my photography is growing- through sessions and campus opportunities,
What I have learned about my true friends since I've left,

and how I don't at all feel prepared to face life some days.

As well as so much more but time never allows me any of that. I already keep pushing back my bedtime. I cut out activities to do homework. I haven't got to see my family in almost two weeks because if I stay here I think I can get more done. I miss out on friendship building fun activities because I don't feel that I will ever get it all done if I take any time away from it.

I don't know how other college students find the time to watch movies or take naps. I can't seem to find the time to eat some days.

But life goes on and all this frustration may just be the mood I'm in. Which seems to follow all to closely way to often.

I'll share a picture with you since that's all time has left me to offer:

A flower on the bush outside my apartment. Kinda pretty, huh.

Well I better return to homework...

Do you know its been only short one day of a month since I've blogged?

Sad huh.

Well about that homework...I'll be back when it's done.

See you in...June?!



  1. Aww, so good to see you Dea! It will get better. Your new layout is gorgeous. Hope the little study break you took for that made you feel better.

    Yay for you getting yourself off to a good start by taking your work seriously. It will get easier to manage, and you will find some good friends who will be supportive of your hard work. I know it feels like you are missing out, but most of the stuff you are missing out on is not that impressive. And a lot of those people will be panicked after mid-terms.

    Hugs to you!

  2. Hey, this is Libby from "Life with Libby." just wanted to tell ya I have this new blog! Check it out sometime!

  3. Oh girl!! You have got lots going on huh?? Just remember to take a moment and Be Still every now and then. You wont regret it!

  4. Thanks for stopping by today Dea. College is like that and you'll figure out a way to find balance. Just find some time each week to come back to's important to find that balance now before you get into the crazy chaotic work of being an adult. I love the photo and I'll be thinking about you.
