Random Culture

  • I didn't run yesterday. If you're stalking me, you'd realize that yesterday was Week 2, Day 1 of Half marathon training. But Sunday I decided to wear shoes that weren't my tennies or my flops, so I got massive blisters on my toes. I gave it a day to let them heal and ran today. Don't worry, i'm back in the saddle.
  • It is common to see animals, esp cats in restaurants here. They walk around the tables, in the kitchen, on the counters.... More the rule than the exception. If I dwell on this, it makes me sick and I don't want to eat. But the food here is just way too good, so I get over it quickly.
  • I'm exhausted. Langauge school is getting the best of me. I know there are people who are "gifted" in this area or it "comes naturally." I'm just not one of those people. I think I'm okay for my level, but full time language study is just tiring.
  • I like living here. I could easily make you a list of things that are "hard" here, but still. I like it. It's very hard to imagine being anywhere else.
  • Running here is not good for my anger issues. I get pretty angry VERY quickly when I run here. I need to a. get over it, and b. for the love find some patience.
  • I made brownies from scratch yesterday. They turned out ok at first. But if I eat them straight out of the fridge, they are SO good.
  • We've been having amazing weather. And by amazing, I mean not 110. It maybe cloudy and rainy, but with the temp's in the 60's, that equals amazing. I've worn long sleeves the last 3 days.
  • I miss my nephews.
Also, big side note.....I think there are people out there that read my blog, have their own blog, and I have no clue who you are. Leave a comment with your blog so I can read yours too!!

Sorry no pics....i haven't taken any in forever. I'll try harder.

love

Laura

  2. I found your blog through your friend Caroline about a year or so ago. I think we're around the same age, married and don't have any kids =) I love finding blogs with people that we could be "friends in real life" with, hahahaha. I've loved keeping up with your adventures overseas.

  3. Kudos to you for learning a new language full-time! I don't remember if you already mentioned this, but which level did you decide to stick with?

    I used to have a blog you could read (The Cheeky Gwynnes), but we made it private last week. (Besides, I hardly ever posted any more. I have more fun commenting these days.)
