I didn't realize I forgot to post this! It's from back in October, my first time traveling alone. I did enjoy it, and did lots of thinking and listened to tons of Neil Young and Devendra Banhart. I left behind my nikon d60 (at home during the x-mas holidays) and I totally miss it and kinda regret it. I had that camera for a little over 2 years and I still feel that I am learning how to use it. I want to visit Paris again, I feel like theres still so much to see and get to know. I went again in December but sadly didn't take a single picture.
I've been having this feeling for a while now that I used to listen to music a lot more then I have been. It makes me sad to realize that but my life has changed, I no longer ride the bus for hours with my headphones on.
I thought about it and realized that I have to make time for music and maybe also clean up my collection of music. Since I have gotten my new laptop my music collection has some BIG gaping wholes in it. I have tons of music I've never listened to because I thought I might like it or read about somewhere. I decided to torture myself(!) and listen to everything in my iTunes by alphabetical order (by Albums), I finally finished the A,B, & C. So I planning on making a playlist for every letter maybe depends on how many albums I have and so on, my collection is still a work in progress will always be.
This playlist features 10 songs from 10 albums that start with the letter 'A' that I really really like. This is my first time using 8tracks so I hope it works out okay and my first time trying to make a mix in years. The mix includes Wolf Parades, Buffalo Springfield, and Avi Buffalo.
Time is running out, and I feel like not much has been done. I feel like I don't know enough English. I don't have enough patience. I am just waiting for my class to be over. I have a headache I don't know why or how to explain but I feel free and worried and stressed. I want everything to be perfect but life isn't perfect, is it? I feel like the past few weeks I've just started to get bored and so tired of not understanding French.
I feel like I can't understand how anyone is because I don't understand their language their thought process. I feel like I know what its like to speak a second language and I never feel that I can fully express myself when I speak it. Its different to have a roommate here sometimes I am grateful other times I feel so annoyed. I am annoyed about the paper-thin walls and how you can't have any privacy with that. I want to learn how to play the ukulele that was gifted to me but I wonder if it will be a bother to her. To hear me learn how to play.
This weekend I will visit the Paris Flea Market, I've been careful with my euros to be able to buy some vintage goodies and some christmas gifts. I am so happy to be able to give gifts this year finally.
