Walking in a Winter Wonderland

The weather was finally starting to warm up this past week. The temperature was slowly rising and the sun was out often, but today all hell broke loose and in came a blizzard. Classes were cancelled at 1pm, but my Calculus teacher still decided to hold class and I had to still give my 3pm prospective student tour. I am exhausted! That being said, it is finally Friday! I am so happy to have a break after the tough week I had. I hope all is well on the homefront, and I am very excited to have some time to hopefully give many of you calls!
Love always, Emmeline

Be Mine

The Beautiful Taylor Women Clan
 Tomorrow I have a never ending day, so I have decided to write my Valentine's Day post now. As most of you know, I believe Valentine's Day should be everyday. I think that you should remind people of your love always, but unfortunately that just doesn't happen so I suppose Valentine's Day is nice holiday despite how it has become distastefully commercial. Love is a strong word and nothing bothers me more than when people just casually throw it around, but I do love you all. My life has been altered for the better by all of you (unless you're an unkown stalker who just likes to read my blog), and I want you to know that you're often on my mind even though I am so far away. It will be a different Valentine's Day this year as I will be celebrating with people who I am just not ready to really love as friends, family, or otherwise, but that's okay! It will still be a fun day. I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day, and remember to take a moment and really embrace the strength of what it means to love.
Love always, Emmeline

The Moving Walkway Is Nearing Its End

Me and My Friend Zach Practicing Our Dance Moves!
The past two weeks have been extremely overwhelming. The Freshman Class Student Council Weekend begins tomorrow, and we have been non-stop working. On top of that I have had an unending amount of Neuro, Chem, and Calc homework. I have had no time to even sit and take a moment to breathe. It feels nice to rest and take a break by writing to you all. While I have been extremely busy I found time last weekend to go to a basketball game (which we won against Hamilton College) and be silly with my friends! I am feeling ready for warmer weather, however I am not sure it will ever come :-( I hope you are all happy and healthy.
Love always, Emmeline

Sunrise, Sunset

I have been awake constantly. I am lacking sleep and patience and this morning I was awake at 6:45am, but something made me feel a bit better. See, my window shades were pulled up and as I woke up I got to see the sun wake up too. The sunrise was beautiful, and it has been a very long time since I have seen one. I forgot how magical that moment can be. Yes, I am tired and cranky and have way too much going on right now, but it was a nice reminder to pause, take a breath, and soak up the little moments of a day. Speaking of soaking up moments, I soaked up the moment yesterday when I was told how despite the scare Grandma Pat was awake and eating pot roast! That women truly is a fighter. I have heard stories of Great Gram Bars and the strength of her personality, and I see it all the time in Grandma Pat as well. I hope that my genes luck out enough to even get half the strength of them. I hope all is going well wherever you may be, and please take a moment to stop and smell the roses today.
Love always, Emmeline
