I'm finally back...for now! I've been busy working hard, studying hard, and reading hard. Unfortunately that meant my blog had to take a back seat. But I accidentally set my alarm for 7 instead of 7:30 this morning so I had a half hour to myself to blog! Now you might be saying, well why don't you wake up EVERY day a 1/2 hour early and blog. Well, my friends, that is a good idea in theory. But I don't get nearly as much sleep as is and don't need to take much more away! So I decided that I will just blog whenever I have time from now on. On the bright side, I have a stockpile of postcards just waiting to be discussed and I will share one of them now!
This card comes from T. in Australia! The text on the back says:
Love is friendship, set on fire!
Thank you T.! I really enjoy that idea of love! Thank you for sharing!
That's all I have for today folks, feel free to add your own comments below, I love looking at them!! I would write some more but I am going to be late for Child Development lecture. I'll blog again soon!
Have an awesome rest of September!

I hope you're all having a great week! I'm sorry I couldn't post sooner, school has been so hectic! Forgive me if the posts are sporadically strewn throughout the week for the next month or so, I'm trying to settle into a new schedule. But I'm really enjoying my classes and all of the extra-curriculars I'm doing and such! And just seeing all my friends again is great!
But to the point before another paper/reading assignment/presentation comes up! This fantastic postcard comes from Vietnam! I thought it was extra special just because it was from Vietnam, especially since Vietnam isn't very prominent on postcrossing! I feel like I used Vietnam way too much in this paragraph...ANYWAYS. This is what the text says about love:
Love means giving and sharing to me. Love comes in many shapes and forms and it really exists! I hope you'll have lots of love coming from all over the world!! :)
Thank you C.! I'm glad you think that love exists! Some people don't and that is just so sad to me. I also love that you include the idea of giving and sharing, that is just such an important aspect of love. It is an often overlooked aspect of love.
Thank you so much again! I hope everyone has a great weekend! Feel free to share your favorite community service activity in the comments! Showing love for my fellow humans through service is one of my favorite activities, next to snuggling of course!
Love and Hugs!

I hope your weeks/weekends were all good! I had a great holiday weekend, made even better by the cooling off of New England! For a few days there, I was going outside in the 90+ degree heat for relief. But now it is much cooler and my roommates and I can sleep comfortably! Because I have to wake up VERY early tomorrow for classes and have spent the day studying therefore did not have time for blogging (although it is still Monday my friends!) I am going to jump right into the postcard!
This adorable card comes from S. in Finland! The text reads as follows:
For me, love is not an emotion but a way to behave. I can show love though I don't feel loving feelings at the moment. Love is recognizing that we are all brothers and sisters and that harming one of us will affect us all.
Thank you S. for your words of wisdom! This is what I've been preaching the last couple of weeks and your words sum it up fantastically! This week, why don't we all try to show some love, to ourselves, to our families and friends, to strangers, and to mother nature. That means no insults (even lovingly), no littering, and please, hold the door for that mother carrying three children, two diaper bags and a latte (although I know you all already would!)! Feel free to post all of your good deeds if you'd like praise for them, or keep them to yourselves and cherish the happiness that comes with helping others in private.
I can't wait to hear from you all! Have a great week and I hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend those of you in the US!
