Things I’ve Learned

It’s been a couple of months since I left my life in Canada to travel/study with my husband in South America, and I’ve definitely learned a few things so far…

1. I’ll be fine as long as I can start my day with one strong cup of coffee and a banana;

2. I can get ready in 30 minutes (I’m talking fully showered, make-up, blow-dry, and bag packed for the day/night considering multiple outing scenarios. Dinner? Bar? Salsa dancing? I’m prepared for all of it);

3. It’s good to break from routine;

4. How to go with the flow;

5. That being said, I’m a planner, and sometimes don’t respond well to plans being made for me;

6. Change is good;

7. It’s good to be outside of my comfort zone;

8. As long as I have my body and a road I can exercise anywhere;

9. I can get by without doing laundry for a lot longer than I thought;

10. I love and appreciate my dishwasher;

11. I miss my P.V.R;

12. The rules of living a healthy lifestyle can be applied anywhere;

13. Waking up at 7:45 a.m. with no alarm is amazing. (My body was not meant to get up when it’s pitch-black and freezing cold at 6:30 a.m);

14. I hate them, but I can co-exist with cockroaches, and other crazy critters;

15. God, family and health are the most important things in life

16. Pets are an important part of life (I miss my puppy);

17. North Americans pay too much for wine, and champagne, and beer, and vodka;

18. A Friday feels the same no matter where you are;

19. I take things for granted at home;

20. I have an awesome husband (not that I didn’t know that before, but I’ve learned even more great things about him);

21. Picking up your dog’s poop is better than the alternative (people of Buenos Aires: it takes two seconds to pick up your dog’s poop – JUST DO IT);

22. I don’t like reptiles living in my toilet;

23. I love dictating my own schedule;

24. I have way too many clothes at home;

25. I love Spanish music;

26. Despite the long winters Canada is a great place to live;

27. Being away from home has its challenges, but I don’t have any regrets.
