I am sitting here in my cute little cozy house in Seattle at the table unable to go to bed yet even though I am exhausted. Why? Probably because I finished two kind of major things I needed to get done and I don’t want to lose that sense of accomplishment I feel right now, because I know it will be gone in the morning. I feel so content right now, I just spent the last hour sitting by candle light, listening to a fabulous Christmas mix, and translating Psalm 121 from Hebrew to English. Oh yes and I am drinking some incredibly delicious wine, a 2004 pinot noir from August Cellars, because I am now officially 21 as of Sunday! Its the weirdest feeling to feel this old and realize how young I still am. Regardless I live for moments like these, the small things where I enjoy translating Hebrew and am proud of myself, where I enjoy a really good wine, where I sit and stare at the rain falling outside my window and feel extremely selfishly happy that I have a warm cozy home to live in with two roommates who I love an incredibly large amount and parents at home who can’t wait to see me again. Its times like these where I just kind of realize how lucky and happy I am, how much I have and how much there is to look forward to. Its the last Monday of the quarter and I can’t believe how time has just flown by, but I know I will get to enjoy more moments like this. A week and a half until its all over and then off to Christmas Break! I hope that anyone and everyone who has to experience finals over the next few weeks gets some sort of moment where they can stop and just feel happy for every little thing they have. These moments come and go so quickly and I just had to stop and appreciate this one.
