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 either...so 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.
