Was tired, but extremely grateful for my experience the night before. I think it was the kick in the butt that I needed.

Tuesday December 2, 2014

Presented my final project, which I had worked on all of Thanksgiving break. My professor was very impressed, and introduced me (at a later date) as her prized student. woah. Anyway, I really enjoyed researching and writing about the impact of Seamus Heaney on society as well as on my own life. Irish Studies classes are the best.

'Privately, he was almost shy, always thoughtful' … Seamus Heaney in 2010.

Wednesday December 3, 2014

Attended a reading by author, Belinda McKeon. Her passion for her work made me excited about writing and reading her novel. Like the midnight run, this was a sort of kick in the butt. Writing is an appreciated skill.

Went Christmas shopping via amazon, and I am grateful that I checked a lot off of my list without having to go to the mall.
Found this image on pinterest and was later saddened to find out that it is no longer available on etsy. At least it makes a beautiful lock-screen wallpaper…

Had evening prayer and adoration for the Youth of the Parish, and was in awe of how beautiful the Church can be while the lights are dimmed…

Went to Catholic Underground in NYC. Had a wonderful connection to evening prayer, and sat in the peaceful presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Some highlights from evening prayer:

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet, a light for my journey. (Psalm 118)

You, Lord, are my inheritance and my cup.
  You control my destiny,
the lot marked out for me is of the best,
  my inheritance is all I could ask for.
I will bless the Lord who gave me understanding;
  even in the night my heart will teach me wisdom.
I will hold the Lord for ever in my sight:
  with him at my side I can never be shaken.
Thus it is that my heart rejoices,
  heart and soul together;
  while my body rests in calm hope. (Psalm 15)
