Learning to let some things go. It's hard to reevaluate my goals and make better, more realistic ones. Quote of the day today: "Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door." Coco Chanel, inventor of the little black dress, was a woman of vision and foresight. She understood the desires of women to look beautiful and wear function clothing.
I've been trying to make a wall a door. I've been looking at all the possible ways to raise enough money to visit Germany. I haven't found an answer yet, and to be honest I think I need to let that wall keep on being a wall. I'm planning on just visiting London. Saying "just" seems like an unfair evaluation of the trip. It's a privilege to be able to study abroad and experience such a historical place.
Knowing I won't be able to travel to all of Europe and maybe not even to Germany makes me a bit sad. At the same time, I feel more at peace. I will be able to research and really delve into the sites I want to see in London. Experiencing one place in depth will be much better than blitzing across all of Europe and missing the quaint little shops, countryside and beautiful sunrise hikes.
Now down to the nitty-gritty. I'm on an expedition to find the best historical places, cute coffee shops, delicious cuisine, and unique England natives. Have any recommendations?
