I can be a bridesmaid AND carry a camera ...

Thirteen months ago, my friend Katherine and I went to visit our dear Nina-pinta-santa maria. Two days prior to seeing her, this guy named Brendan took her on their second spontaneous date (within a week of meeting her), and told her, “Nina, my grandpa says when you know, you know. And I know - you’re going to be my wife.” That same weekend, the church ladies at Nina’s bible study received the word “husband” for Nina, without realizing the situation that Nina was in. That very day we started planning her wedding. Four months later, they were engaged. Two weekends ago, I was able to watch one of my best friends say “yes” to learn how to put another person before herself, to be loved, and to drink tea evermore with her favorite one. Nina and Brendan, I love you both and am so, so happy for you two. Thanks so much for letting us celebrate with you guys!

Take it easy, English majors. Calm down, you're too loud.

I've never been in a room full of English majors when it wasn't class time.
Until today.
I've decided the quiet awkwardness could have been one of two things:
1) We all stayed up late writing final 15-30 page papers. Or,
2) We are all introverts who just want to go read books and drink tea.

Either way, I'm now a Sigma Tau Delta member. So that's cool.
That basically means I just get to put "English Honors Student" on my resume.
Nothing too special.
Also... I'm half and half with this whole 'introvert' business.
Anyways, I just learned this last week that I'm graduating (in seven days).
I need to go study for finals.

Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you find something good to read.
