it all started with madeline and top ramen
when i started kindergarten, i would come home after school and dad would make me a delicious batch of top ramen and say, "now this is the best ramen i've made." then i would enjoy an episode of madeline. he even took me on a "date" to see the madeline movie that came out. i'll never forget that.
ever since then, i have been dreaming of visiting paris, france.now that i'm learning about art history, my desire has increased. i know the french can be mean, and it can be dirty there..two things i hate..but i just want to go! not only do i want to visit, i want to feel like i live there. i can just imagine myself trapsing the streets of paris, sitting down at a cafe to enjoy a croisant. i met a guy last semester that served his mission in paris, and i was just THAT much more attacted to him when he told me that...oh and when he spoke french, i could barely handle it. even when i look up pictures of the ifle tower, my heart beats a little faster. there is just something about a childhood dream that i can't let go of.
one day, i will be there.
