Do I speak Spanish? No.
Have I ever been to Spain? No.
The thing is, I'm really tired of the United States. I hate it here (no offense to anyone). Since my family is 100% Italian, I have had the opportunity to visit Europe quite a few times. I love it there. The people there are just so full of life and spirit. They don't worry about these tiny, insignificant things; they live in the moment and just enjoy life instead of fretting over things that aren't there. That, to me, is beautiful.
Of course, I could choose to live in Italy. I have family there and I speak the language. Besides, the culture of Italy is very similar to the culture of Spain. But for some reason, I don't want to live in Italy. I just think Spain is a beautiful place with beautiful people and a beautiful culture. To live there would be fantastic. I understand the language pretty well if you speak it slow enough. I just think it must be a fabulous place and I have heard that it is.
My only problem is that I have no clue what I want to do with my life. I wanted to be an actress, but my mom sort of crossed that idea off the list for me. She wants me to be a doctor but I hate science. I want to do someting that makes me happy but I also want to make a good living. The reason I bring this up is because I have to have a plan for my life before I jet off to Spain. None of these careers appeal to me. I don't see myself devoting my life to anything and being happy. I get bored very easily, which sort of sucks.
I just hope it hits me one day like everyone says it will.
But, as of now, my plan is to live in Spain. I just hope I get the opportunity to visit soon. That's where I want to study abroad to.
What can I say? Viva España.
