Plan B

I have been having a hard time blogging lately. Not necessarily due to writers block but due to the fact that I am tired of writing blogs about being homesick. Sure I am still homesick, but I guess it is time I realize there is nothing I can do about it. Suck it up right? I am trying to switch my frame of mind from wanting things I had back in the States to taking in and learning as much as I can while I am here. The culture, the architecture, and the scenery is amazing. There is so much more to see and learn.

Speaking of learning yesterday I applied to UMUC ( University of Maryland ). Sure, I wanted my next school to be a culinary school but that isn't really an option right now. My second choice would of been a school with a good holistic nutrition program, but that isn't an option onto my third choice: English. I have considered this major in the past but then the image of me in a grey pencil skirt with ripped stockings, a tight hair bun with ever so carefully placed chopsticks, standing in front of a bunch of pubescent teenagers trying to teach vocab as they texted their friends about how bored they were. Yikes.

I am really hoping that image will not become reality. I can hope that an English major can offer me more options besides teaching. Being a woman of few spoken words, I have a ton of words stored up in my head. I love the English language. Reading it, studying it, and writing it. I also find it ironic that I will be studying English in Germany.

Regardless of what the outcome is, I am excited to get back to school, and back on the positive thinking wagon. At least I am not the kid getting yelled at in the apartment above us right now.


  1. I think this is a fantastic idea. You'll have something to focus on and do something worthwhile with your time! :) Yay!

  2. I am glad you registered and are on your new path. English helps you in the spoken and written word. Jolly good show!

  3. Awesome! I've been talking to my husband about going to school, which is something I never wanted to do after I graduated high school. Perhaps in a few years, when we've moved out and we live in our own place, I'll actually consider it.

    Good luck!
