Love is passion...

This quote from Meet Joe Black is one of my favorite quotes from cinema. I find it beautifully worded and very poignant.

Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived.

Fun & Fancy Free

Well spoken Fred Astaire! This lyric from one of his songs perfectly captures how I have been feeling during the past few weeks. Life without academic pressures is more wonderful than I possibly imagined, and though I have been a college student for 5 and 1/2 years, the breaks grow sweeter with each passing year. (where as the classes seem to have the oppostite effect) I have been seriously praying about the upcoming semester; for peace and that it will be easier than the fall. I have such a strong desire to have a life outside of school, and with family, friends, & church there is plenty to occupy my time when not confined to academic exile. With God, I know there IS a way, and He will show me how to best manage my time.
