Have a happy week!

we all know that life has it challenges
how boring would it be if everything was easy
God wants us to live a life to the extreme
So how about you start living that life today!

Road Trip!! Winter day at the beach!

Road Trip!

Coming from a coastal town, you don't realise the value and beauty of living that close to the ocean until you miss it. So, I basically made my friends drive the 5 hour drive to the beach and back one 'sunny' winters day in Feb, just to put my feet in the ice cold water and smell the fresh ocean air and then drive back! But t it was sooo worth it!

yay!! the ocean!

Green tea and fudge time!


We went to a small quaint town called, Wilmington, where they film 'One Tree Hill' (did you know that?) but I didn't see Brooke or Haley or Nathan, or any of them even though I was looking out for them! And then we went to the beach near there called Wrightsville beach. It was a great mini road trip, with ice-cream, fudge and lots of sing-along in the car!

Happy Week-end for those that have a week-end!

For those that think I am having a fantastic party on week-ends let me just correct that thought for you...

these days week days and week-ends are all the same to me...I have to write papers, do group assignments and study for tests. In fact I am waiting on my group to arrive right now on a Saturday morning as I write this blog. I haven't slept properly (like going to bed at 2-4am) every night for the past couple of weeks and if you see me right now, you would not believe that I actually walk around looking like this. I am in desperate need of a makeover!

Yay for my life! The upside is that there is only 3 more weeks left of this semester. Just taking it one day at a time!

Happy week-end everyone :)

Seasons are beautiful!!

Richmond in the Fall :)

Its funny because I never really paid much attention to the change in seasons (or talked as much about the weather) before I came to the States. I suppose its because the change in seasons are not so extreme in SA as it is in the US. Here people definitely look forward to the Fall (Autumn) cause its so darn hot and humid in the Summer as well as to the Spring cause that means the harsh Winter has passed.

I am definitely more accustomed to a temperate climate without much less extreme temperatures and here in the US Fall and now Spring are definitely my favourites! The colours of the trees here in Autumn are just amazing and I especially love the red trees. And then in Spring, all the Cherry Blossoms come out and everything is pink!
