i've been having some weird experiences when first waking up all this week. whereas i'm used to the pattern of last semester when i would wake up, find i could spare to sleep an extra 15 minutes, and then have that time pass very, very quickly.
the opposite seems to be happening this semester so far. i'll find that i have say 10 minutes and when i put my head down to sleep, it's an enjoyable experience. there's no unfair jolt of what feels like 3 seconds worth of relaxing. in fact, i've found myself checking the clock just in case that i didn't set the alarm for the extra time.
maybe it's a good sign.
i'm not sure how this semester will go. i'm not academically unsure (although my public speaking course seems like it might be a little daunting) but rather socially and emotionally.
i seem to be at a comfortable enough point in my classes and my stay at west chester that i'm beginning to recognize and acknowledge people that i've shared classes with before. also i think soccer will hopefully broaden the experience.
emotionally is a completely differnt story. i'm not sure i want to think about it right now.
i'm quite content to hole up in my room for long periods of time by myself. i enjoy reading, watching movies, playing games, playing music, and listening to music.
i'd like to visit pine grove this weekend just by myself. the venture that chelsea and i took last week was very enjoyable. not only did i feel like it helped chelsea and i connect, but thinking to this one moment really makes me smile.
we were wading up the creek (stream, etc.) and it was around sunset. we came up around the bend ("just around the riverbend!") and the sunlight was glistening off the water making it sparkle. we went a little further up over a fallen tree and found a wild raspberry plant. i don't usually enjoy raspberries but these were some of the sweetest, juiciest raspberries i've ever tasted. not soon after, chelsea (being chelsea) managed to catch a gorgeous frog.
i love the song 'kafari' by sigur ros. it's a very good late night, zen, mellow song.
i can't wait for fall leaves
