Smell the (dead) roses

Hello world,  

I hope you all have been having a wonderful Thankgiving weekend. I had the week off from school and I must say it was awesome. I didn’t realize how much I just needed time to chill, sleep in, and smell the (dead) roses. It wasn’t even completely lazy. I matched TON of socks, cleaned around that house,  looked for a job,  etc. But the amount of non-stress this week was a beautiful thing.  

Today I reread Wonder by R.J. Palacio which is a, wonderful story by the way. I definitely recommend it. This was one of those times when you start reading book and you just finish it in one day. I used to do that all the time, usually to the detriment of my schoolwork and sanity. However, today there was no guilt,  nothing hanging over head, just the simple pleasure of being completely immersed in a another world. 

I know that most people don’t get a whole week off from school or work before Thanksgiving and I hope that this doesn’t cause any jealousy among those who still have to work. But I hope you get a chance in the near future to set aside time to just chill, smell the dead leaves, and enjoy the simple things in life.

P.S. The picture is of some random teacups I found in the thrift store. My Aesthetic. 


An Open Letter to Everyone

Dear Everybody,

Did I ever tell you that you are the most beautiful, handsome person. I’m not just saying that. I literally looked at you and thought “Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous creation.” There may be some who say that beauty is a matter of opinion. However, in my short, almost 16 year long life, I have found that there is always something that is beautiful about everyone.

I’m not the only one who thinks so. God, our creator, the master of the human form looked at you and said “This is very good.” I pray that you learn to believe it.
