Westland Hotel Rm 140 London
Viva La Vida
Ohhh tiredness. Ohhh nervousness. Ohhh being in another countryness without people who know me well (except Becca, which is nice) and love me for who I am, goody-goody quirks and all. It's weird; everyone's saying "this trip will be life-changing for you!" And yes, I know, but right now I can't picture how. But I guess that's just how I felt in a way starting Davidson, but also so... different... Right now, I am glad we're here but I'm also... on edge. Because I have no idea really what this semester is going to be like. And I'm afraid I won't know where to fit within it... I am just trusting that I am where you want me, Lord. Maybe I won't completely get it for awhile, maybe never, maybe immediately-- but please help me to continue that faith. Ahhhh! (yes, that's the end of my prayer.)
September 15, 2009. Midnight. Davidson, NC.
It was the wicked and wild wind
blew down the doors and let me in...
Oh, I got it all right.
