Catching Up

Greetings to all  my kindred spirits! (Those who are of the race that knows Joseph, if you prefer).
I was looking back, and I noticed that my last post was on September 6th, and I decided it's time to update this thing. :)
 
My life tends to go in "clumps"; a month or two that have a similar feel to them, and then the next month goes into a new set. My memories are sort of grouped into these sets; for example, last December and January are a clump, and February and March are a clump. All that to say, since my last post, I left my previous season and moved into a new one.

On September 7, we had assembly day to start the new school year, followed by youth group starting up again that evening. The following Friday (September 9) we had a lakeside party to kick of the start of choir practices.
  I kind of had mixed feelings about going back to everything--hope that it would be a better year, fear that it wouldn't.
 
So far, all I can say is that it's been different.
 
Different as far as who I end up hanging out with the most.
Different as far as how my classes are going.
Different schedules--needing to be out the door by 7:15 in the morning. That's a killer for me!
Different house. We have our house on the market and are hoping to move into town by Christmas.
 
New.
I'm on chapel team at school this year.
New faces at school and in choir.
New job.
New book; I read the Iliad for one of my classes
 
Fear.
Facing the fact that someday I have to die.
Dealing with the messed up world in which I live.
 
Memories.
 
Seeing my "unbiological" family four days out of the week, and spending the night with them to help get ready for a birthday party.
Having friends over night, binge watching Narnia, and staying up till four in the morning.
Wearing our bathrobes to choir along with some of the other girls
 
Familiar.
 
I have different classes, but I still have the same teacher
I am doing Great Books again, but this year we are focusing on ancient literature
 
Honestly, I'm just not sure what to think yet. All I know is that it's different than last year, emotionally and in every other way.
 
 
Forgive my rambling please; I'm afraid my thoughts have been sort of a jumbled mess lately, too hard for even me to weed through properly. But writing them out does help. :)
