Long Time No...Blogeth

Yes, it's been a while, and this is going to be short. The last several months have brought about things I never thought would happen. Mostly through a particular relationship with someone, I've grown and learned so much - about loving, feeling, relating, about myself and others. It's been mentally and emotionally exhausting but it's been worth it. Maybe someday I will be able to articulate it in a way that will help others.

In one way I feel my life is at a standstill - like I've been treading water, wasting time. I don't know what I want to do with my life. It's frustrating. But on the other hand, God has definitely been using this period to teach me a lot. So if you're in the same place, be encouraged - it's often these waiting times that bring about strengthened character and invaluable lessons that will help prepare for the future, not to mention it's a great time to work on your patience. ;-)

Have a random, cool song:

A book I recommend: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I mentioned it in my last post. It was so good I pre-ordered the sequel months before its release (and it was released today! *squee* Now to wait for it to arrive). It's an excellently-crafted fantasy novel. It's been a long time since a story so pulled me in. Note: contains brief thematic elements, language, and violence.

A movie I recommend: Tangled. I saw it in theaters last year, and it's a really good story. I pre-ordered that, too.
