Woah. It has, eh, been a while here on the blog. I think these cycles of silence are something everyone goes through (at least by those living in areas in which winter becomes a creative up-hill battle). It's just a little more noticeable when you keep a daily blog.
Sometimes I struggle with why I write and post things on the internet, yet as soon as an extended break pops up, I really do miss the process of blogging. It's relaxing. It's a way to share the things I see and fall into love with. And really, it's a way for me to remind myself where I am and where I want to be.
And right now I am living in a small town that is completely uninspiring one moment and full of wonder the next. I am working through higher education, a task that seems to be less fulfilling than my romantic notions had once hoped it to be. And I am waiting – to graduate, to move to someplace that is dauntingly exciting, to meet new people and to start challenging myself again.
So right now, I actually am really happy. As much as I feel like I have hit an inspiration wall and am ready to move onto the next chapter in my life, I really am so consistently amazed by the things that are around me right now: life-changing opportunities on the horizon, the ability to make so many different things on a daily basis, a wide-grinning, curly haired man who makes me laugh when I need it and also challenges me when I need it, and the friends who, although I don't see them everyday, always have time for a cup of coffee and a little conversation.
