It's been quite an eventful week or so. There's definitely been some bad going on throughout all the good but I promise, I don't mean harm! Meep. Ok, so that was all just a load of silly superstition so I'll be moving on. Now then, let's stay with the positives!
My favorite thing that has happened this week is definitely that my best friend has come home from France! She went to Nice for a medical internship program and stayed with a French host family and everything -- so proud of her haha. We finally got some time to hang out today so we met up and went out for Korean food. Also she brought me back some souvenirs too and I have to say: they're adorable!
So in my cute little gift bag was:
Also I got a giant gumball in the shape of a tennis ball which actually isn't in the picture because...I ate it. But let me tell you this, it was good. I was literally screaming "It's so fluffy I'm gonna dieeee!" while chewing it. It reminded me so much of a ♪marshmallow♪ (Sarah, I hope you get that reference if you ever read this!)
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Y'all ready for this? Because I would like you to meet: PINOCCHIO
I named him Pinocchio (I'm being a bit of an animist here and going along with the whole superstition-theme) because it has quite a bit lens and the lens looks like a nose of a camera so...there we go! Aren't I so creative? It's ok. Don't answer that.
Now I bought him specifically for study abroad. I hope I get to travel a lot and see a lot of pretty places and take a lot of pretty pictures so Pinocchio here will be my partner in crime! *And a helpful addition in my efforts to update this blog and document my adventures for future reference.
Ha. I hope you didn't think I was done because there's just one more piece of news! I got a summer job! Starting Monday, I'll be working at a real estate firm and getting a bit more cash to splurge a bit more when I'm travelling. Yayy!
Not to be materialistic but really, when I line up my Kindle, iPhone, Thinkpad Yoga, and camera, it's amazing. With all the struggles these past years, it's hard to think that I actually have all these. I'm also really happy to have my family and close friends. I might not get to see them every day or they might not even be in the country, but they always remember to text, call, care, and just keep me in mind. All the time. Really. These people. They're amazing. I honestly sometimes wonder how I even have friends but they're there and I appreciate that. I've been in such a state of confusion and ridiculously lost before so to have all this really feels...tremendous.
P.S. I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
