Here in Seattle you definitely have to expect the unexpected when it comes to the weather. For instance, June started out warm and sunny, then dipped down into the upper sixties for most of the month. At the end of June, when the weather was forecast to be nice and clear, my family went to visit a few museums in Tacoma within walking distance of each other, and as soon as we arrived, it started simply pouring. I was definitely not prepared for that kind of weather in my t-shirt, skirt, and tights! On Facebook, I started seeing just about every other friend despair of summer ever arriving. Myself, I like the cool weather, and anything over 75° is too hot, so I honestly couldn't have cared less. Then last week, we got a pretty terrific thunderstorm out of the blue...which is pretty rare for here. And this week...this week we had weather in the lower 90°s for a couple days, then it cooled down a bit. Weather is weird. And I find it's weirdness pretty interesting. I used to want to be a meteorologist to be able to study that weirdness. It does teach an interesting lesson, though; you can never quite know what to expect in life, since just about anything can happen. So...you have to expect the unexpected and accept what life throws at you. I'm really bad at that. I don't like variations from the norm or spontaneity. But I'm getting better at it, and learning to place my life in God's hands.
How does that quote go? "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."
Also, I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately, but I'm sorry about my super intermittent posting. School has been just a wee bit crazy lately, and in-between long reading assignments, two quizzes, and two essays a week, I haven't had much free time. Also, I have an essay due tomorrow. On Independence Day. What is this world coming to? But I love it. Learning is fun.(:
Speaking of which...happy Independence Day to all of my U.S. readers! I hope you have a wonderful day of celebrating! and for those of you not in the U.S., I hope you all have a great day as well.
Also! I just realized that my blog layout is having some really weird issues right now...I haven't even touched it for weeks, and somehow all the stuff on the side column suddenly got shoved to the way bottom of the page. I'm trying to figure it out, but I have no idea what's going on. :P do any of you have any ideas about what the problem might be? In the meantime, I'm sorry for the mess!
