The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper. - Eden Phillips
Sunset on our dirt road. We just bought 6 acres to build our first house on and this is the first sunset we got to watch from our land. Here's to new beginnings.
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
- Frost

I love the end of this poem!! It feels like my life at the moment. I'm so concentrated on finishing this semster, and yet I have so many miles to go before I get a break - a rest. But I have to have trudge on because I've made a commitment to everyone and I've expectations to fulfill. It would be very easy to give up sometimes. To just go into those dark deep woods and lay down with my eyes closed... just breath. But - I'm so close to the end and there's nothing on this earth that could make me stop now. I don't care if I never use this degree in my life - I will at least have the knowledge that I did it. That I faced obstacles and worked hard and made my way. I'll still be the first person in my family to finish college... that's such a burden to be honest. It leaves little room for mistakes because so many people are looking to you to get it right.
