Wish Come True

Last Summer, right before leaving for Oxford

This blog might sound a little corny, but sometimes wishes do come true, even if it takes a while.  I was a romantic for a long time, yet never had a date on Valentine's Day or my birthday (today).  For a decade my birthday wish when I blew out candles was always the same.  As cliched as it sounds, I wished for true love.  Well, now it has finally come true, as I am with the love of my life Rachel.  It took a while, but in the end my dream was realized.

The End in Sight


With only two days left as a student teacher, finished work in my Education class, and the upcoming performance of Stuck, my MA thesis, the end is in sight.  It has been a long climb, both through undergrad and graduate school, but this will be the end of my degree-seeking schooling.  I am very excited.

Had a lovely Easter at my parent's house. Rachel is wonderful with my nephews, and my mom made a delicious (Italian) dinner. Overall a very nice day.

I had a dentist appointment and he asked what I had been up to over the past few months.  I told him my time abroad was the best time of my life.  Sometimes it is simply nice to remember...

Idioms and Spring Break

Spring Break is finally here!

Idiomatic phrases are interesting.  My grandmother, for instance calls AAA, the "three A's" and not "Triple A". Rachel showed me an idiomatic phrase I hadn't really noticed when giving me directions.  All of her directions are to "red lights".  This is what she calls traffic lights (whether red, green, or yellow- they are always "red lights").  I find such things quirky but fun.
