Can’t stop dreaming

Rapunzel: I’ve been looking out of a window for eighteen years, dreaming about what I might feel like when those lights rise in the sky. What if it’s not everything I dreamed it would be?

Flynn Rider: It will be.

I never thought I would ever watch Walt Disney’s Tangled, nonetheless feel like Rapunzel (without the golden hair) and quote it as my life story.

But jokes aside, here are the facts; I did spend eighteen years of my life wondering what was out there, dreaming of throwing myself into the world, and thanks to the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, I did so. Two weeks after my eighteenth birthday I packed a suitcase and left for Apple Valley, Minnesota.

I had the American dream, I lived the American dream. And yes, it was everything I dreamed it would be. For two and a half years I had a great time, I made unforgettable friends and lived with amazing host families that gave me nothing but love, and took me in as one of their own.

Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?

Flynn Rider: Well,that’s the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

Right now that is what I am doing, I found a new dream, and I am out again living it.

So, cheers to that.

À bientôt.

    I always feel that blogging is a game and as I want more views I am always reluctant to view other bloggers as I feel they will beat me in total number of views. I have started to wake up to the fact that I’m being stupid and have been looking at a few pages recently. None though that make me want to get to know the person or feel like I have a connection. Yours on the other hand allows people in without asking any questions. I like your style. Good work.
