I haven’t been blogging so much lately. And it’s not because I’ve been busy, because I have somewhat but I haven’t at the same time. I’m still currently searching for a job and in the mean time I’ve been taking a lot of time to take care of myself. This includes frequent trips to yoga and spending time with my family and friends. Last weekend, I was in Atlanta. My best friend invited me to go with her family to her cousin’s graduation from Spelman College. I was really excited to go for a whole bunch of different reasons. One of which was that Spelman is my dream school. Though I believe that Michigan is the perfect place for me to be right now. I think that in another life, Spelman would’ve been perfect for me. I was very excited to go. Overall, the trip was perfect. I also was glad I got to go because I’ve been thinking a lot about moving to Atlanta (which I also have a whole bunch of reasons for that) and this trip just confirmed that I really like it there and could see myself moving down there. It made me feel relaxed and I liked that. I like being able to just go with the flow and see what happens. It’s part of my journey- learning to release the need to control. I often like to control things because I have this vision that if I am in control I know I’ll be happy. But I’m learning to let go, and trust in the process. I understand that all will work out the way it is supposed to. I’m hoping that the way it’s supposed to includes a job, because I’m getting a little bored. We’ll see what happens. But for right now I’m just enjoying my space, my life and being happy.

sarasota: vacation

so I had an option for what I wanted to do this summer. I could either have had an open house or we could go on vacation. I was really into going to the beach, so I picked going on vacation. I wanted to talk about some aspects of this trip, which I loved.We decided to go to Sarasota, staying in Lido Beach Resort. It was on an island, about 20 minutes away from Sarasota’s airport. I loved the resort and the small town vibe. Though there wasn’t much to do on the island, we got to have a lot of fun going to the beach and just relaxing. I was able to play in the sand and do some great releasing. Going to the beach at 8 am was not only needed, but enjoyable.  Our vacations have never been as relaxing as this one and I feel like we all needed this. We also slept a lot which was really good. My sister’s god-family came to visit us (who live in Florida), which was a lot of fun. We were able to have family time, with our immediate and extended family. Though I’d say I’m borderline fluent in Spanish, I’ve never spoken Spanish to native Spanish speakers. I was able to have the opportunity to speak Spanish and I was very pleased with the result. One of my goals is to create a bilingual elementary school, which I wanted to do in central Florida. This trip just confirmed that not only is the population diverse enough for this to be a great idea, I enjoy the weather. If I had the opportunity I would go back, but I don’t know if I would want to live on the island. I will definitely be returning to Florida though!
