O N C E   U P O N   A   T I M E   I N   B E R L I N














Just a little tour of Kassi & her beaux's place in Berlin. This day feels as though it occurred lightyears from now. It was a hot day. That evening we lounged in the grass at a park as the sun was going down. Sometimes I think I could cry, from that homesick-heartsick feeling, when I realize it all came and passed so quickly. I miss Europe and my friends daily. My memories are a distant dream.

Life just got crazy busy. I just started a new job, which means I now have two. Finals are around the corner, tuition for next quarter is due and I'm not sure I'll get the grants I need to pay for it. I am a little scared. I am nervous. I am doing my best to suppress the anxiety welling up from my belly - taking deep breaths and trying to focus on one day at a time. Sometimes I struggle with worrying over things which I haven't any (or little) control over. I have to remind myself that these things always work out, one way or another.

  7. your pictures are always so lovely and inspiring to look at. and berlin is a city full of style, which can be seen almost everywhere. especially in beautiful apartments like the one your friend lives in.
    and you are doing a great job not stressing over things you can't really control, because they DO work out on their own. and even if something doesn't turn out the way we wanted or planned it to turn out, it's still ok, because everything happens for a good reason and in the end it will all make sense!
    love,
