Life Lately (everything is awesome)

Sunday, February 22, 2015

I so wish I was in France right now. Not in a bad way, and not because I don't want to be in Denver, but because it was SO much easier to blog in France! Life lately... well life lately has been incredibly busy. And honestly? I love how busy it is.

There are so many great - seriously great - things that are happening right now, and I cannot express how grateful I am for that. I was so scared that I would get back from studying abroad and feel empty, and hopeless, and that my life would be boring. While I miss France so much, sometimes it hurts, studying abroad gave me incredible clarity and spark.

I feel a lot more confident and comfortable in who I am, my passions, and what I want out of my relationships and in my life. That has meant letting go of some things. Sometimes it feels so weird to be living a life that I didn't plan... or living a life that is so different from what I had planned. But if I'm honest, it's about 10,000,000 times better than I had imagined.

I am in love with my internship. I get so excited, and no matter how I feel - sick, tired, stressed about school or life - whenever I'm there I feel great. I know that at least for a while, I'm doing what I want to do. That little bit of clarity is so nice. 

My friends are basically wonderful. Seriously. I saw my bestest friend for the first time in a couple months just last week, and when I'm freaking out about boys or school or whatever, she lets me vent and be crazy Zoe. I love having someone who is so wonderful, it's like we never miss a beat.

Formal was this past weekend. I love formals! But this formal was the best formal I've been to in my undergraduate career. It was SO awesome. So much fun. Thanks to my super awesome date, and my super awesome friends. Plus, my seriously great dress. #goldsequinsfordays

It's snowing in CO right now. I will not get a snow day, and I know that, but I'm drinking tea and avoiding doing my homework like I will. Questionable life choice? Maybe. Regret? Never.

I'm starting my Senior Thesis! It's crazy, and daunting, and intimidating, and scary, and exciting, and exhilarating, and I can't wait to actually start researching things! I'm researching France, and the region I studied in, so I know that I can keep my love for France and Normandy alive.

So, I'm sorry I haven't been blogging as much. I so wish my blog was full of interesting things, but I'm glad because it means I'm out living life. I read somewhere, and I don't remember where, but another blogger said not to get too caught up in blogging. Remember to live life so you have something to blog about. Right now, I'm living life and absolutely loving it. So when it slows down, I'll have a lot to blog about. :)

Basically... I just feel like this:

So, now, life lately!!

Reading... All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It's SO good!

Watching... The Oscars? More consistently (re)watching Sherlock.

Working on... Senior Thesis. SO MANY COOL THINGS.

Listening to... Ed Sheeran. I'm obsessed! Especially this song...

Wearing... Warm things. A striped sweater I bought in Caen. My favorite blanket scarf (from Rouen).

Loving... Life. Everything. Even the snow (and lack of snow day).

What are you up to? How's life lately been for you?
