Beautiful Sundays

My backpack is packed. I'm ready for school tomorrow.

Yes, this is my last day of freedom. But, tomorrow I start school, and there is no fighting that. Yes, school can be very unpleasant for me. Yes, a lot of people thought I was weird last year, and since I have a ball of yarn packed in my awesome Hello Kitty Backpack, they will probably think I'm a freak of nature. But you know what? That's okay.

I'm still thankful that for the past 11 years, I've had a good education and, for the most part, have been blessed with being rather smart. I am thankful that women can go to school, because in some countries the women have to stay home and clean (eew, cleaning!). I am thankful that my education, along with a lot of other worthy and unworthy people, is mostly free of charge.

It just hurts me, now that I think of it, that some other people aren't thankful for this.

I'm glad this weekly post makes me see the good in the most unpleasant things.

Now, what is beautiful in your life? What are you thankful for?
