in the States. At times I miss being at home for these sorts of holidays. Other times - it doesn't bother me at all. It makes me laugh when my Grandmother cannot understand why other parts of the world don't celebrate Thanksgiving. What do you mean - she says- that there is no Thanksgiving in Switzerland. Such a strange country that you live in.

So I made the trek to the gym yesterday. After months of not going it was my brilliant idea to take a Body Pump class. I can barely move today - no exaggeration. I said to the hubby - I think I did something to myself. (Honestly, I feel like I pulled every muscle in my body). He says - yep, it's called exercise! God I love that man.

What can one do for motivation?? Any thoughts?? I feel like I am floundering about without a purpose. In my previous life I used to be so independent, hard working, driven, SUCCESSFUL...etc, etc. Here in Switzerland it seems as I am just existing - doing things to pass the time. Where/when does this feeling end? I need a purpose and I need to get MOTIVATED. It's hard to follow a plan when there is no plan....
I am going to try to audit a photography class at Webster University to learn some more things about Photography. Really would like to be better - maybe even do it professionally BUT no idea where to even start.

So, this week I am socializing. My parents who were here for a week are now gone and then I have a friend coming in on Friday. This gives me 4 days to socialize with 'new' people (as I call them) and hopefully make some friends in my new city. I had cafe today with a girl who was really nice (although I think a tad younger than I). The plus is that she lives in the near vicinity of me which is rare. I didn't think that anyone lived in my neighborhood. It is soooo quiet. I hate all of this - Hi, my name is....will you go to coffee with me and be my friend shit BUT it is necessary. We all need human contact to survive (unfortunately!). The sad part about it is in my previous life in the States I was very social. In this life - not so much.
