I loved it so much I would do it again in a second. I only got to see Paris, so I hope to see the south of France sometime in the near future. I would recommend it to anybody that loves architecture, culture, shopping, sight-seeing, and being in a place where people kiss in public…ha
I got in a few relationships where I jumped at the chance, just because “he” liked me. Always ended up in heart ache, and usually I was the one suffering from it. I promised myself that I would not let this happen again no matter what. That if I was to date again, it would be because of true love, and he would have to pursue me so that I would know 100% for sure that he was serious about ‘knowing me’. But then I met this guy who I knew I was interested in right away. I let him get to know me, but I made sure that I never really showed it. I let him pursue me as best I could without coming across as not interested at all. The more I got to know him the more I felt I could spend the rest of my life with him, but I STILL let him pursue me. Eventually we started dating because he was persistent…and long story short we are married now, and happily in love. It wasn’t easy though because our natural instict is usually to wear our hearts on our sleeves if we want to fall in love. I don’t really think that is the smartest method. Be willing to fall in love, but guard your heart as to who you will let it be with.
It’s a funny thing when you get engaged and then married. You join each other’s lives. Which isn’t a bad thing…but its a while before you establish brand new friendships with another couple…that you both like hanging out with.
I’ve decided the instrument must either be the piano or the acoustic guitar. I have an acoustic guitar…BUT I am really leaning more towards the piano. We just need something small because we have no room in our condo. I think this goal wont be even close to a reality until next year. Unless I take lessons this summer.
I really like working out. If I like the gym I’m at. I dont like co-ed gyms because it becomes a meat-market. And I have found one gym that would be great, called “Defining Eve” but it is SO expensive, I can’t afford it. Maybe I’m just stubborn, but I feel like its the gym that is holding me back.
So I’ve realized one of the biggest obstacles I have with reading is TIME. I don’t lack the passion to read AT ALL. The books I am reading at the moment are…Word’s in a French Life, Time Was Soft There, Wildly Sophisticated, & Shopaholic and Baby. Some are to learn, others for leisure. But maybe I read too many books at once. I take turns reading each one, depending on how I feel that day. But reading is almost something I need to start scheduling in, because spare time doesn’t exactly come easily.
French Class is hard. Our teacher is good, but I never have time to practice, so I feel like it’s going in one ear and out the other. I don’t want to give up though because I think it is really good to have another language under my belt. I need to move to France or something I think. That’s a good idea.
Well I have started to read a handful of books, but the one that I just can’t really put down is called Blue Clay People. Its about a guy who travelled into Liberia to do fight poverty and save the rainforest. Amazing non-fiction book. Definitely recommend. If you have a heart for Africa then this book is for you to read.
I am leaving for Niger, Africa in 21 days! I can hardly wait. Myself and 11 others are going on a humanitarian mission for 2 weeks. We have been planning for 6 months, so it is crazy that this has become a reality. AHH
Well I am not sure about whether or not I will ever get a degree. It’s not that I dont want to, it’s just that the program I am looking at is only a diploma program, and that is sufficient encough in the travel industry to succeed. I am on my way to a diploma though. But maybe a degree will come later in life? I dont know.
I’ve started to slowly find pictures off the internet of cottages that I like. Different rooms I enjoy, etc. I started a little design scrapbook so that I can keep track of it all. I am saving slowly. But hopefully by the time we are finished having kids we can buy one! Even if it’s just tiny.
Well I have been married nearly 7 months now, therefore I have now been cooking for 7 months. I have learned heaps of recipes, but now my goal is to keep it healthy and good. Which I find is OFTEN difficult. I still have A LOT to learn, but I am off to a good start. And my baking is improving too.
I am looking at a school that offers a Business Management in Travel and Tourism diploma, which really excites me. I love to travel, so I figure why not combine travel and work! I will hopefully be starting in January if all goes as planned!
My husband and I are in French lessons. We have been going for 2 weeks and so far so good. It is getting harder though, each week. But I am hoping that when we are in Niger, Africa, and Paris we will be able to get by!
Unfortunately it is only for 2 days, but 2 days is more than no days. On our way home from Africa we are stopping in Paris for 2 days! I am so excited. About 8 weeks to go!
