i'm finally finally finally finally finally am learning Spanish!
i got so excited ----slightly late for the first lesson therefore was running to my class and got slightly light headed by the sight of my very cute teacher. he's so good looking. even more so when he speaks Spanish.
i thought of writing this down as i've been dreaming of learning Spanish eight/nine years ago when i first discovered that there is such a thing called international volunteering programme. and i wanted SO much to take part and volunteer in Costa Rica. of course the first criteria is that i must speak Spanish. hence begins the journey of dreaming about it (typical me, just dream it away).
and then later in the following years, i can't remember exactly when but it must have been an awesome moment of find as i kept it as one of my must accomplished dreams to date..hike the Inca Trail which was located in the Andes Mountain and which will lead to the breath-taking Machu Picchu mountain (i speak as though i've been there). and i might sound dumb but what are the odds, Peruvians speak Spanish! it is so odd though that i remember clearly the first time i heard of the country Peru is from the second book by Lemony Snicket, A Series of Unfortunately Events - The Reptile Room. the little things that somehow find their way to stick together in my life. it's odd.
i can't wait to speak the language fluently. to sing in the language. to follow the trail and to be taken away by the view. i seriously can't wait any more further. oh exciting life, please just begin now.

You know how each time you come across the title of a song that you've never heard before and your head started imagining how it should sound like...but most the times the tune disappoints you and very very rarely would you find a match. this song is a perfect match to me:
so perfect to welcome my weekend :)

'if the children don't grow up
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up
we're just a million little gods causing rain storms turning every good thing
i guess we'll just have to adjust'
i would cry over this song a hundred million times
but today is the start of something new, so i'm just going to embrace the strength in it, not the willow part of it
bid farewell to my once-upon-a-time-dream-come-true yesterday and i was very lucky enough to have Edward by my side! the office was literally empty as it is the peak of the peak, everyone is out. i can't help to feel extra emotional leaving it like that. i can be an emotional wreck, any time anywhere. (good fun)
it didn't occur to me until i said babye to Edward...how much i will miss this place! despite the hard times, yes i will miss this place. i will so miss working with them, making big fuss about all the annoyance we've collected over various people and various engagements yet accepting the only way out is to adjust ourselves, i will so miss discussing issues, talking about food we discovered and shopping places with my neighbour.
on the bright side, i will not miss the late nights. just the companions that come with it.
