writing | i'm not me



i'm not the me of yesterday
i've changed a few times since then
and by the time tomorrow comes
i'll have changed another ten

because we're all just like a river
ever changing as we flow
each day we're a little different
as we develop and we grow

so then when tomorrow comes
and we're no longer who we were
i'll look at the me of yesterday
and i'll wave farewell to her

project 12 | January

i love having my years captured month by month and plan to keep up with project 12 this year as i can. it's fun to look back on the details of our year at the end of it, as well as seeing how we change through the photos each month. :)

JANUARY


HIGHLIGHTS
my second semester of grad school started on January 3 so i hit the ground running right at the beginning of January. i am normally at my internship on Wednesdays & Thursdays, but this semester started with a block week at our internships, so i was there from Tuesday-Friday. turns out the beginning of the year is super crazy at my internship too, so i interviewed clients back to back all week during block week. it was good experience but so exhausting!

since we were gone a majority of December, we wanted to do some exploring around our new city before classes started back, so we spent some time trying out new places near us. i also had no classes on MLK Jr. day so we had an extended weekend right at the beginning of the semester. i would have preferred to have that long weekend in the middle of the semester, but it was super nice to have a break right at the beginning too. i was not ready to go back when January 3 got here so the break was nice!

we found out there is a National Park in South Carolina so we had to check that out. we also took quite a few day trips to the coast since we are a lot closer right now. it has been pretty warm this winter, so it has been the perfect temperature at the beach. we also took our basset hound to the beach because she had never been. she loved the sand and chasing seagulls, but she wasn't a fan of the ocean. ;) we also are zoo members, so we have enjoyed going to the zoo in the cooler temperatures while there aren't as many people there!
