•today, this is my sanctuary, because today is a day to write. i will embrace my dirty glasses, big sweatshirt, pajama pants and second day curls. I will sit contently beside my stack of commentaries and hope that the words would pop up out of them and dance around my head. my mug will soon be filled with tea. my ears will be filled with classical, goldmund to be exact. the blinds will stay shut because everything is more magical in the dark. the sound of clicking keys will be loud today but so will the happiness of my heart. today, this is my sanctuary, because today is a day to write.•

home sweet home….

The very beautiful, California Room #130! 

"Yeah, I'll be right home." 
"I think I'm just going to head home for the night." 

I catch myself saying these phrases quite often. Where is my home? This little room right here. But can that really be? My "real" home is 2 hours away. 
This tiny room has truly become my home. While my wonderful little twin bed has become my few forms of possession, I find safety and comfort in this place even when the floor is cluttered. Even when I'm waiting for the bathroom, even when I have to tip-toe back into the room at 12:30 pm. 

Is that weird? I've only been here for 2 months and I already feel as if my heart beats for this place. I'm even continuing to pray for the Lord to open up a job opportunity here, it just feels right. 
As a matter of fact, I'm staying here over winter break! My supervisor offered me a job so it looks I'll be a penguin for much longer! I truly do love my waitressing job here on campus. I have wonderful supervisors that make all the hard work worth it. What makes it even better is that they all love the Lord! How awesome! I'm so thankful that the Lord has opened up a solid working opportunity here. I will be able to head home for about 10 tens for Christmas though! Don't I look so very glamorous in my uniform? 

The Lord is definitely at work here. He is teaching me so many new things and I'm falling so deeply in love with Him. Thanks for all the support you guys have given me while I transition into life here. I'm looking forward to writing and focusing more on the blog soon! Maybe even a new VLOG this week! *gasp!!! Have a great weekend you guys!
