Mom:My main profile picture is with Lazlo, our cat.
Mom:I think their winking at him
Me:How do you know that?
Mom:Because the internet loves cats
Mom:Not almost 50 year old women.
Mom:You know how all women fall in love with a young father hanging out at a park or whatever in public by himself with his baby? It's probably not even his baby, maybe he borrowed it from his sister. Either way its a chick magnet right?
surprisingly people have been asking me things that have caught me off guard. Mainly because they are more concerned about aspects of my life than I am. So here we go.
- What about your new job? What about it? I’m not gonna go to Italy because I currently have a new occupation? That’s exactly how people never do anything with their lives. Continue to sit at their cubical being a worker bee instead of exploring. I’ll risk leaving my job in 8 months with no potential of ever working there again to walk the streets of Venice. I truly am okay with that sacrifice.
- What about your dogs? They will be staying with my mom on the farm. Where they’ve been raised and have known all their life. Rufio will be the only one coming with me overseas.
- Why Italy? Because I was offered a job there and will be living rent free at my cousins apartment. Who would pass up that opportunity?
- Are you scared of moving to a foreign country? I’m a military brat. It’s all I’ve ever known. And it’s all we ever do. I’m a pro at this by now. I’m not scared, i’m ecstatic. So ecstatic that I wish it was November right now.
Just be happy for me. Don’t be caught up in being concerned about the aspects involving my decisions or consequences. I told myself weeks ago that I was no longer going to be in routine, that i’m finally going to break my own circle and jump without looking first. Today, I booked my flight to Italy and i’m moving in eight months with plans of living throughout Europe for the next 5-10 years. If i’m not worried about that, you shouldn’t either. Look forward to all the great pictures i’ll be taking. That’s all i’m thinking about.
Title: ‘Chimerical Dream’ Composer: Francois-Paul Aiche Soundtrack: Water For Elephants
This is a beautiful score. Most of the time I sit through movie trailers just to listen to the upcoming soundtrack. I have my favorites, and its amazing how much one song on a trailer can influence a viewer, and not just wanting to see the film, but the emotions that were brought from that 2-4min clip. When this song played toward the end of the second trailer it was just lovely. And from whats already leaked on the internet, the original soundtrack is going to be marvelous.
How long are you planning on living in Italy? When you're finished there are you moving back home or off to explore another chunk of the earth?
Right now i’m planning on just 3 months. If I fall in love with Venice (which I see that happening) then I will stay until I have the itch to move again. I’ll have a job in Italy and i’ll be living with my cousin, so I will be set up financial wise.
But when I’m done in Italy, i’m not coming back here. I’m going to move to Paris. I plan on living in Europe for the next 5-10 years, these next 8 months will be the last time I’ll ever live in the states.
