Life Lately

I haven't posted in a few months, mostly because I have been interested in other things for the past couple of months. But today I feel like writing a little bit. Well, my last post was about going to Ireland from London. I am no longer living in London, unfortunately. I still have dreams of going to the Gloucester Road station and riding the tube to the BFI. I miss the perfect London skyline. We were lucky to get to be there during the Olympics, but at the same time, it got so busy  and packed with people that I started to feel like a native London-er who was getting frustrated by tourists. It was actually a good feeling :) It meant that I was completely adjusted to being there and I had made it my home for the short period of time that I was there. It seems weird that I was actually in London just this summer. It seems like another life. But I guess that's just how life is, isn't it?

I have learned a couple of things about life the past few months, these two lessons have been taught and re-taught to me in so many different situations and ways.
1. Things really do not turn out the way that you expect or plan.
2. Life is so good! No matter what happens, things are going to work out the way that they are supposed to and I am going to be happy.

These lessons have not been easy to learn but I am thankful that I have learned them, and that I have been able to get through some difficult situations through the learning of these lessons.

I had a hard day and came home to this from Mary. 
For example: This semester I didn't know who I was going to live with. I needed a new environment but the people I would consider living with were getting married, doing beauty pageants, going on missions, etc. things that were keeping them from being ready to sign a contract for fall semester. So a random girl posted on facebook that she was selling her contract I messaged her and bought it. It was just down the street from where I lived last year and it was cheaper than my previous apartment. I was nervous about moving in with three random girls, but I felt like it was a good decision. I had a really great experience moving in with random people freshman year but what are the odds that I would be that lucky twice? I wasn't planning on spending much time in my apartment because of school, work, and dating so I didn't think it mattered. But this semester has been far from what I expected it to be with all three of those things so I found myself spending more time with my roommates than I ever have. I don't know how but I ended up with the best roommates ever! My roommate Mary has quickly become one of my favorite people ever. I love getting to spend time with her and when she's not around I am actually disappointed. My life is not what I expected it to be, but I am happy. I am so thankful that I was "randomly" put with the girls that have gone out of their way to help a girl that they hardly knew feel better during a really hard day (or couple of weeks). Life is good.
