Counting down the days

I woke up, and suddenly February is almost over. It's been a full month. Lots of reading to do for school; discovering how much I enjoy watching the show Friends; falling in love with colorwork knitting; crying so much some nights because of big decisions.

But especially, I have been counting down the days to my Israel trip. I am ecstatic about it! I am going with my class as part of the Israel and Archaeology program I am in this year at college. We leave on Tuesday and return on March 15, so I won't be on here (...because I posted so much this month...). I hope you all have a wonderful first couple of weeks of March, and I cannot wait to share my adventures with you all.

Thankful Thursday // 5

66. My professor who gave me a ride to visit my sister so that I didn't have to take trains and taxis.
67. Having the opportunity to visit my sister and watch her school's musical (Fiddler on the Roof).
68. Silence in the library. A good kind of silence, not the scary Doctor Who kind.
69. Handmade scarves and other gifts from sweet friends that remind me of them every time I wear or use them.
70. The fresh, crisp, pure air of winter days.
71. Surviving travelling by myself.
72. Yarn sales and discounted yarn.
73. Friends whose conversation makes time move faster while working in the cafeteria.
74. Movie nights with the girls in my dorm.
75. Singing praise and worship songs in the shower is a wonderful way to start the day.

P.S. Please vote for Megan Kelsey and her fiance, Justin, to win an amazing wedding package from Katelyn James here. The video they made tells their story, and they deserve to win!

a blog award

The lovely Miss Abbey Noelle tagged me in a "You're amazing and so is your blog" award, and here are her questions!

What is the car of your dreams?

A Volkswagen bus. I have wanted one of these as long as I can remember, back before Pinterest told everyone that they are cool. ;)

What's your jam? (aka favorite song of all time)

Oh, boy. I am awful at choosing favorite songs, books, movies, etc, and my favorites change over time. But so far as songs that I always have and always will jam out to, I would say Disney and gospel music.

Best bit of advice someone has ever given you? 

Hmm...I honestly don't know.

Do you prefer light, pastel colors or darker, jewel tones?

During this time of the year, I like darker tones, but during the summer I gravitate more towards lighter colors. When it comes to wearing colors, I tend to stick to darker colors because they look better on me.

If you could go back in time, what era would you go to?

Probably the Regency period, around the Jane Austen era. I would love to observe what life was really like during that time. 
Or possibly ancient Rome.
Or the 1950's.
Basically, I want a Tardis so I can go everywhere in time. ;)

Would you rather spend a week in a busy city filled with excitement + people, or in the quiet countryside surrounded by the beauty of nature?

The quiet countryside. I love being able to retreat into the stillness of nature. I don't think I was made for city life. 

Well, I am really bad at answering questions, apparently. But now, I have questions that I would love for all of you to answer in the comments, and if you would like to answer them on your blog, let me know! Here it goes...

When you are on the internet, do you keep a lot of tabs open or try to keep it to a minimum?
Tea, coffee, both, or neither?
What kinds of books do you like to read?
Facebook , Twitter, or neither?
What are some of your favorite scents?
What are your top three favorite colors?

Answer away!
