We are in the middle of February. How did that even happen? I have no idea. I feel like time is just slipping away… I’ve been back in the states for 6 months now. Wow, writing it out is weird. I can’t believe it’s been 6 months now. Fortunately I’ve been blessed with the opportunity… Continue reading Time.
It’s amazing how time has flown by. I’ve been back in the states for 3 months now and sadly my little ol’ blog is suffering. Life has been busy but not entirely too busy that I don’t have time to write. I just feel like things aren’t that interesting and exciting now that I am… Continue reading Unbelievable.
That’s how you start interviews right? Well after a strong handshake first, of course. Last week I got an email for an interview once I’m back stateside. Two actually! So stoked beyond belief that I’ve got my foot in the door somewhere. But, what the heck do you do in an interview?! What do I… Continue reading Umm…Hi, You Should Hire Me…?!
When I left for Spain a year ago, this was what I left with: a big bag that I checked, a carry-on and my college backpack. I could have checked 2 bags, but my cheapie, college grad self was not going to pay for an extra bag! Surprisingly it was enough. Sure I bought some… Continue reading A Suitcase and A Carry-on.
So right now I’m reading two books, both shared from friends and I must say that they both are causing me to do some major thinking and evaluating about myself. Fresh Faith by Jim Cymbala and Fearless by Max Lucado. Anywho, these books have been comforting in the fact that they are about your faith… Continue reading The Power of Prayer.
I have been thinking about this topic A LOT these past few weeks. As my time in Spain is winding down I’m beginning to assess what life is going to be like when I move back to the States. I am looking forward to moving back and being home, but I know that things will… Continue reading Reverse Culture Shock.
Today I wanted to say thank you. I don’t think I’ve told you that in a long time. Your presence in my life has been one that will never be forgotten. We’ve been through ups and downs and happy and sad. But we’ve pushed through. Persevered. I have been thinking about what you mean to… Continue reading Thank you.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Study Abroad.” Even before my year abroad in España I would have said to take any opportunity you have to travel and go somewhere new! And now after being abroad for almost a year, I still stand by that statement. The way I see it is like… Continue reading Just Go.
I’ve been thinking about this post for a little bit now, and I think I’ve got enough in mind for a substantial post. Wherever you go, whenever you meet people, the question of occupation always come up in conversation. It’s inevitable. When I tell people that I’m an au pair, I either receive confused looks… Continue reading So you want to be an Au Pair?!
Today when I looked out of my bedroom window, I saw that the far off mountains had some snow on their peaks! This shouldn’t surprise me since it has definitely been cold enough for the snow to stick, but we haven’t had rain for a few weeks. Regardless, this small thing kind of reminded me… Continue reading The view from my window.
