I'm feeling: I still feel like I am drifting right now. I don't feel like I am anchored to anything. My loved ones aren't near me and I have yet to develop an attachment to the city so I very much feel like I am just along for the ride right now, getting blown in any and every direction.
I'm thinking: I am concerned this blog is getting a bit too sappy. I don't mean for everything to seem so 'woe is me the weary traveler.' While I am glad that I have an avenue to be honest and get the feelings out, there is a lot more to my life right now than my uncertainties.
I'm anticipating: My second week of classes here in London. My opinions of this whole situation are all over the place right now, so I hope that as classes pick up a bit I will settle in a little better.
I'm planning: A tripe to Paris... maybe. I have a friend going in March right when my spring break starts. It is oh so tempting to go. I am definitely one of those girls who has had cliché dreams of someday visiting Paris. I began taking French in high school anticipating that I'd get there some day. I haven't yet determined if my budget allows for such an adventure.
I'm reading: Emily Bronte's Poems of Solitude. I usually revisit this collection of poems in the dead of winter. For me, nothing describes the word solitude better than the feeling that sweeps over me during the silent chill of January.
I'm listening: I received the Bear's Den EP from a friend earlier this week. I listened to it six times through in the first sitting! Afterwards, I promptly bought tickets to see them here in London in March. I can't wait. Additionally, I have also been listening to Now, Now's album Threads recently. It's a little different from the kind of music that I typically like, but one of my goals for the new year was to vary my music a bit.
