Chicago- Sufjan Stevens

I fell in love again
all things go, all things go
drove to Chicago

Im back in the city after thanksgiving break. Break was amazing. I was able to completely chill, can't say i did much, maybe not exciting to most but it was quite relaxing for me. It's funny i'm in the city now wishing i was somewhere else.. school is getting tough to finish up this semester and my mind is convinced that i have better things to do than what i had set out to get done, finish my degree. I find it to be a big struggle. But as i sit here i'm reminded of everything in my life that i have to LOVE; Chicago, big city life, the opportunity to meet close friends, living the journey! Love is such a huuge emotion that keeps us going, i speak for myself mainly, coming from the experience living this crazy life, testing as many boundaries as possible. Always coming back to the one truth i know for sure:

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16

Keep me in mind. Pray about Africa.

we slept in parking lots
I don't mind, I don't mind
I was in love with the place
in my mind, in my mind
I made a lot of mistakes
in my mind, in my mind
