36 more days.
Thats it. Just a little over a month and my world is changed forever.
Sometimes there are days I am so excited and other days– especially when I look through a calendar– I get so much anxiety. I am leaving everything I know and love behind. That is the scary part…
So here I am. Last day of work. I am going to miss everyone I work with. I was really excited for this day to come but now it just feels weird. Slowly but surely everything is setting in. For one, a bought my plane ticket. July 12. I will start my new life in my new home on July 13. Thats 47 days until my butt is on that long flight….
It has been a while since I have posted but it may be because my life has been thrown into a complete whirlwind. For one… I have made my definite decision. I am moving to France. In July, I will start my year long journey abroad. I am still kind of in shock…
So as you can tell, I am completely and utterly obsessed with everything French. This how I spend all my free time. This weekend I went home to spend some quality time with my parents…. and of course to get pamper by my mom. All I did was eat delicious food and relax. Perfect weekend.
But, I must add in, France was also a guest this weekend…
I am currently reading The Gospel According to Coco Chanel and although I am not even half way through the book, I am in complete admiration.
What an incredible woman!
I like to think if I lived during her time that we would have been friends…
So I still haven’t completely made my decision. But of course, I am still leaning towards France. I just got pulled into my boss’s office and found more details about the job I would have if I stayed. Administrative Assistant. I can’t get over that….
So here I was worried about what I was going to do when I graduate. And now I actually have the able to decide between two incredible opportunities. Work or Live abroad??
1:36 am. Still awake. Why? Because I am obsessed.
I just got off Skype with my dear friend in France. Can my 9 months just start now? I know if may seem fast that I decided but France has always been the one on top. If I go… I am going to France….
So I spent a lazy day at home, (which are usually rare for me,) pondering my potential au pair locations. I went to Europe– London, Paris, and Rome– in 2005 with a student group. So today I decided to reminisce and watch the video that was made from the trip. Just as amazing as when I was there.
Europe is calling me. I know I was meant to live there… at least for a portion of my life….
As I sit here it seems that May is coming much faster than I would have hoped. We just spiraled into 2010, not even knowing where 2009 had gone. I just can’t believe it. I mean I feel like I just started college. Where did the 4 years go?
I have always been someone who knew where I was going. I declared my major as a freshman and never looked back….
