Christmas break 2
So I have had quite the Christmas break...already its been around five weeks or so and I feel like I haven't done much but done quite a lot all the same...there was the holiday of Christmas with the Vanderpools coming (yay) and with the Wilsons staying at the house with the baby...and then of course the jail which still keeps me going with the oddities that occur there...and then there was the drama with James Bartee...oh, Jamie...what a twisted child...and of course, new year's eve where i wanted to go to indiana but instead was stuck here...but also the fun I had with the Gully boys and with moatsey and katie....good times...and the trip to Dad's farm, which i fell head over heels in love with...granted, there's been downers over break too like the fact that I didn't see half the peeps I wanted to, paige went to england to live til May, and jr mint didn't call or write or email or anything like he promised...
which brings me to now when almost all of the friends have gone back to school and i am down to hanging with the fam and going to the library which is fun...and i have reverted to reading classical literature and am currently reading Jane Eyre which is why I will leave this journal with a great quote from the book:
"Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity, or registering wrongs. We are, and must be, one and all, burdened with faults in this world: but the time will soon come, when, I trust, we shall put them off in putting off our corruptible bodies; when debasement and sin will fall from us with this cumbrous frame of flesh, and only the spark of the spirit will remain, - the impalpable principle of life and thought, pure as when it left the Creator to inspire the creature: whence it came it will return; perhaps again to be communicated to some being higher than man-perhaps to pass through gradations of glory, from the pale human soul to brighten to the seraph! Surely it will never, on the contrary, be suffered to dengerate from man to fiend? No; I cannot believe that: I hold another creed; which no one ever taught me, and which I seldom mention; but in which I delight, and to which I cling: for it extends hope to all: it makes Eternity a rest - a might home, not a terro and an abyss. Besides, with this creed, I can so clearly distinguish between the criminal and his crime; I can so sincerely forgive the first while I abhor the last; with this creed revenge never worries my heart, degradation never too deeply disgusts me, injustice never crushes me too low: I live in calm, looking to the end."
