"...but there’s always time for the paper."

I am working on posts right now about breakups and finding au pair jobs abroad.  I hope to do more posts on various topics after finals are done (two weeks!) and I am settled in Germany.

Do you have any other topics you'd like me to post on? (My inner journalist loves discovering new information to share!)


p.s. Have you read online magazine The Violet, yet?  It's beautiful, insightful & leaves you feeling truly inspired. And you know what else? It was created by the lovely Camilla of the blog champagne bubbles!

I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines, and sing out loud in the car with the windows open, and wear pink shoes, and stay up all night laughing, and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets, and throw parties, and eat ripe tomatoes, and read books so good they make me jump up and down.-Shauna Niequist

“What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet.”

Someday I will host dinner parties & you will always be invited.

We will eat lovely food, and perhaps the first time I will try & have a hand at cooking a real meal. If it doesn't work so well, the next time I'll just have something ordered-in. But nevertheless, food will be plenty & drinks will be flowing. (Our drinks will be something "fancy" - you know, what qualifies as "fancy" to us: like sparkling grape juice & ice cold wheat beers-- served in wee glasses, most likely a mason jar I've turned into drinking cups.  

We will come together & every single time the conversation will start with something along the lines of "Where does the time go? It seems just like yesterday..." & for a moment we will all sigh & smile at that truth, & the fact it will be mentioned, just the same, at our next dinner party.

We will then talk of our lives.  We will share in roars of laughter & bicker about politics & how some of us still listen to Taylor Swift... but only because we know just how to each others buttons-- & our quirks & differences are what we truly love about one another.

We will reminisce about all the memories we share & chuckle at our past selves.  

"How could we have been so silly?" we'll say. 

"We worried about so many unnecessary things!" we'll all agree.

We will laugh until we cry & cry until we laugh.

We will find ourselves chatting on & on about how our Loves drive us bonkers--but we all will smile at one another, knowing that none of us would trade them for anything.

We will talk of our past dates-- especially the times we tried to set one another up.  

"How on earth did you think he was MY type?" we'll banter. 

"Well, he turned out to be much different than i thought." we'll refute. 

We will then joke & point out our most embarrassing moments & then we'll sigh & say in unison, "how did we get through all of that?" 

& we will not say it aloud, but each of us, in our hearts will think:

"It was crazy, exhausting & one of the most confusing times of our lives...but we wouldn't change it for the world." 

"Not one bit." 
we will silently repeat.

Have a lovely Friday!

"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."

how a year can change everything.

 {via: flickr.}
holy moly. what a whirlwind of a year it has already been-- a beautiful whirlwind; definitely. 

i am overwhelmed with projects & homework galore, working daily, as well.  i can hardly believe it's my fourth year of university. woah. isn't it silly that after switching majors approximately 5 times, i am still unsure of what to do with my life?

frightening? yes. secretly exciting? absolutely.

i leave for germany may 17th. i know the time between then & now is going to fly.  that's how it works, after all. but i am thrilled!  i am au pairing for a wonderful family that lives outside of berlin.  i am going to teach their little babes english. dream.come.true.  i am also applying to attend courses while i am there at the university. i've had a cutout that says "in Deutschland studieren" that i cut out of a study abroad brochure & pinned to my bulletin board a few years ago.

if you would have asked me a year ago if i still was going to study in germany i would have most likely said no. 

but that's the beautiful part about life & growing up & learning more about yourself everyday.

it's amazing how much your dreams shift & change in the matter of a mere year. but it's lovely how my path has directed me back to pursuing my longtime dreams.   

even if you try & tell your heart to hush, it will prevail in the end. every time. i'm sure of it.

here i am, preparing to live in germany in less than two months & i am more content than i have been in far too long.

& holy moly, it's a wonderful feeling.
