Hey ladies, its been a long time, for many reasons and posting, and reading for that matter =/just has not been something I could do/handle. However that is besides the point I’m posting now, things aren’t perfect but a lot has been accomplished and many steps have been taken, so lets start again;
HELLO! I’m Tara and I took a short blogging sabbatical if you will, I love you bloggies yet I have not been reading them for the past couple weeks sooo if you start getting comments on posts from yesteryear, don’t be alarmed its just me
My theme song as of late!?
OK lately I have been a busy lady, when times get rough I always try to stay busy, it keeps me out of my head, and focused on reality.
Senior Project is going well I have a meeting every friday with my mentor (who is amazing btw) and I attend youth meetings as well, this week I’m interview people who work inside DCYF.
Coffee and Tea has been a big part of my life, naturally <3
I had a Cafe Americano at Starbucks the other day I hadn’t had one in a very long time, DELICIOUS!
SO I got my PART IN THE PLAY I auditioned for a while ago!!! We are doing the Grims Fairy Tales annndd I am in Beauty and the Beast and I am playing Lilly one of Beauty’s sisters. MUAHAH a few of my verry best friends are in this play as well so I’m pretty pumped!
I have been reading again and I’m thrilled, I have started to every day get up an hour early and go down stairs shower, get my COFFEE, and then head back to my room, curl up my blankets and read for the next 45-60 min <3 LOVE <3 I Finished reading
Started and Finished the Screwtape letters
this book I highly recommend, it really made me think, and I found it well convicting to say the least, definitely a good book, take the time to think about everything the writer is saying. It’s a book of letters the Senior Devil (Screwtape) writes to a devil in training (wormwood) and they are trying to turn a newly converted Christian away from “the Enemy” (God), I’ll let you read it and see how it ends
And after that I am going to read Push, the book the movie Precious was based on (HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE MOVIE OR READ THE BOOK?? THOUGHTS?)
I have seen many movies as well! Teenage revolt, Up in the air, Invictus, Avatar, The Hangover(dvd), and the Lovely bones, I still must see the road (uhh yeah I got AAA movie passes for Christmas hehe)
I have been out to coffee mannny times, but I have only tried one new one… I HAV FOUND A NEW FAVORITE COFFEE SHOP! (sorry Coffee Depot I still love you ) The Bee Hive in Bristol RI I will be reviewing it in my Cafes! section later on
I have been babysitting more as well ( last time I bsat I taught the children line dancing, you know the norm), which is good b/c I have a thing for shopping, and that requires $$ haha
Here is a necklace that I am absolutely in love with it’s so chunky and delightful?! my brother got it for me for Christmas and I fell in love at first glance, perfect thing to pair with a plain top!
I also got gift cards to Borders, and went on a shopping spree there, and at my local book store, even though I didn’t get a card there, Yes I am a DORK and PROUD OF IT! <3
Overall I have been spending much quality time with my friends, my buddies, and my family hehe! Its wonderful having so many solid peer, and adult support systems in my life, something that I am so incredibly thankful for.
Finally I have been writing, just for me, just for fun, and its has been wonderful, before bed I sip some tea, light a few scented candles, turn on some YANN TIERSEN and just write for about 30 min, and then lights out I got to bed =]
Dream and Hope candle holders, 2 books one on the history of coffee and one on the history of tea! My Tea daily calendar, it tells me a tea fact a day!! <3
I have a week off (well more or less) from school, its exam week I have a math exam from 9-11 tomorrow (EEK) to pass I have to get a 40% though so I think im fine and Then Friday form 9-11 I have to take half of my World Lit. exam, I’m exempt from the second half!! Then starting Monday SECOND SEMESTER SENIOR YEAR BEAST IT OUT!! Im soo happy, and soo ready, also I, with the exception of my world lit class will have all new classes (5 to be exact) and I love each and every one of the teachers and genuinly think the classes sound fun!! YAY (well im a little iffy on the personal finance one but hey I get a math credit for it and it may actually be usefull!! haha)
Now tell me my blogging friends, what movies have you seen as of late? What books have you read? How do you relax after a long day, how do you put your mind at ease? What is YOUR theme song? When the going gets rough do you find it better to take a break and step back, or immerse yourself in your LIFE?
<3 <3 <3 Have a wonderful day ladies, its good to be back, cant wait to get all caught up on your lives!! <3 <3 <3
