Hodgepodgeing Again [Finally]

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Well, I did say that I was going to try and blog again with some sort of regularity. So, here goes: I'm returning to the HodgePoge with Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond because she has some great questions this week - and I needed some inspiration to write! 

Let's do this!

1. Tell us about a time you found yourself in the 'middle of nowhere.' Was this deliberate? 
I like to spend time 'in the middle of nowhere' - especially at night. It's usually deliberate for me.  There's something beautiful about being out of the city and in the world. The last time for me with this was probably either at my friend's wedding a few weekends ago or the last time I was up in Maine for work. 

2. What's something you're 'in the middle of' today or this week?
Everything? Packing, setting up a new bank account, VISA applications, TSA PreCheck Applications, etc, etc, etc. Also in the middle of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken which is phenomenal already! 

3.  At what age do you think 'middle age' begins? What does it mean to be 'middle aged'?
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that middle age is a made up period of life that only happens when you've decided that it happens. 
Act young, live young, be young - at 10, 50, or 100... 

4. What's your favorite food from the list with something yummy in the middle? 
I love me some perogies stuffed with potatoes and cheese. 
Not on the list would have to be

5. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying "In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." Would you agree? Have you found this to be true in your own life?
I'd have to agree with this man, he's pretty smart.
I think that out of adversity some of the most amazing things that can happen.
And I think I've lived to see that happen for me and others enough to believe it. 

6. What's a song you remember loving from your middle school years? Do you love it still?
Anything by *Nsync. And, yes, of course I still love it all today! 

7. May 18th is National Visit Your Relatives Day? Will you celebrate? Who would you visit if possible?
Unfortunately I can't head home today (though my dad was here this morning and left to drive home, does that count?) but will be soon! I would probably visit my parents - even though I visit them a lot, they're my favorite people on the planet and no amount of time with them is ever enough.

8. Insert your own thought here.
I cannot believe that in just over a month I will be wrapping up my time here in Montreal! It feels like I just moved here. But, moving to Italy will be amazing in ways that I can't even begin to understand right now. And I cannot wait for that adventure to begin. 


Thank you all so much for your comments! I'm only happy when I have comments. Really. You are contributing to my future happiness right now! XOXO
