I’m in awe of you
In awe of the indefinable beauty I see in you

Living now has a meaning
A meaning that words can’t define
Simply because I’m in awe of you

Trip To Montreal, Canada! (Thoughts On Life/Grad School)

First off, I want to thank my new subscribers! Thanks for joining my ‘online world’ and I hope my posts will serve you well. It has been about a week or so since I posted anything, but I am back. Back in Texas too, actually. I was in Canada and then Pennsylvania. All went well, and I am loving my new school WILKES, and my cohort. I met a lot of people who share the same passion as me and it was a great feeling. I still can’t believe that I decided to go to grad school right away. Lol. […]
