So Far, So Good

So I've been reading Eat Pray Love while I'm in Hawaii, I'm about one third of the way through, and let me just say that it's fantastic so far! I love how raw it is, I guess it reads so real because of the fact that it IS real (true story) but still, its great. I can identify with Elizabeth, shes so familiar to me in so many different ways... I especially love this quote, "...Traveling is the great true love of my life. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel, I feel about travel the way a happy new mother feels about her impossible, colicky, restless newborn baby- I just don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because it's mine..." And thats exactly the way I feel about traveling, and learning new languages, its so pleasurable for me, I absolutely adore it. Go buy a copy of Elizabeth Gilbert's best selling book before you see the movie...

Victory for All!!!

Yes yes yes...I'm almost 20 years old, but I still watch Nickalodeon and the Disney channel from time to time, I mean who doesn't? Anyways if you've scanned the Nick channel lately, you've probably noticed it's newest show Victorious. It's so good AND funny! That's really rare in teen sitcoms lately, so I get excited when my little sister tunes into a show that we both think is worth watching while letting go of a few laughs along the way. The main gal, Victoria Justice, is so adorable, ok she's 17, so maybe I should say gorgeous lol. But she's just a likable, down to earth type of girl, seems like she would be very aproachable. I really like that in teen stars...I'm tired of the Miley's and the JoBros, I mean come on. As Teen Vogue's newest cover girl, Vicky proves that she's got it all figured out when it comes to her own personal style, and I'm in love with it.

Mon Premier Amour

So it's official...I've decided to minor in French! I have no idea why it took me so long to see it, because this whole entire summer I could do nothing else but speak in French (when the timing was right lol) I was surprised at how much I retained from only 2 semesters of the class. But my experience was too wonderful to forget. I kept fantasizing myself living in France, not the "fancy" tourist France that you always see in the movies, but the real life France, the relaxed culture, and the amazing, mouth watering food. And the people, most of all I want to interact with the people! I've always loved experiancing different cultures, so if everything works out, next summer I'll be studying abroad in France for about 6 weeks!!! Magnifique!!!

Coffee Shops and Bookstores are my Safe Havens

Everytime I go to any kind of coffee shops or yummy smelling cafes, all of my worries just seem to melt away :)
