Today I took time to get it over with this week's homework for my two online classes I take. Tomorrow - only painting and spending time with the family! I guess tomorrow is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish "New Year", according to so my husband has a short practice with the team in the morning and then he is mine.
I finished reading a very nice book for my anthropology class - the First Fieldwork by Barbara Gallatin Anderson. It's a first person story about the author's yearlong journey to a little island village Taarnby, Denmark, to study the local culture. This journey reminded me of mine, when in 2005 I went to the USA for the first time as an exchange program participant. It changed my life - sounds corny but it is true. I became more independent and strong. It gave me opportunity to compare my culture with another cultures and for short three months I was a part of a new culture. I have travelled to Europe before and it gave me grandiose impressions but I never felt so closely involved in a foreign culture before. It was a very interesting experience.
"Anyways" as the main hero from "Nacho Libre" movie says, I am going to make myself and my husband a nice Nutella sandwich and go to watch "The Happening" on our DVD. I liked most of M. Night Shyamalan's movies and I am sure I will like this one. Have a good evening as well!
