I know what you're thinking, "this lady sounds pretty lazy (and a bit chubby for my taste)" but it's not really about that. It's about the fact that I don't get to enjoy life when I'm too busy being... busy. I love to be productive, it makes me feel good, but when you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off you don't really have the time to sit back and enjoy your accomplishments. It's silly when you can't take the time to say "hey, I just did something awesome" but instead you are too busy working on the next thing. I am extremely thankful for having the Summer off to really dive into some things that I have been wanting to do for a while, but never really had the time for. Now, even just finishing a book, I have the time to say to myself "good for you". Sometimes that makes all the difference between my happiness and my despair.

So, even though I can't go to Paris, I can try my best to live the French lifestyle here in Kentucky... for now.
