Today is the second last day before our reading week begins. I am looking forward to it. It's true when the educators in my program say this will be a tough term. I thought I was doing well, but i am POOPED out! Plus, since the new year has begun it hasn't been the greatest.

In the Indian culture what I find is no matter what family always comes first.  During this month I have realized that I can never escape my family. They will always be by my side through the good and bad, and though sometimes I want them to back off and let me make the choices I would like to make, I know they are always looking out for my best interest.
Another thing I have found so far this year is the struggle to find balance. Considering I work and I am in a program that requires so much of my creative mind, it's so hard to find time for family, friends and myself. Though I am thankful each and everyday for the life I have, it is nice to have time to re-fresh the mind and body.  

My small, simple escape will be making my way to Edmonton. I am looking forward to going there because I am meeting the organizers of One! International- a non-profit organization that teaches literacy to children in the slums of Mumbai. I am hoping to volunteer my time there during the summer. I encourage all of you to check out their website 

But also I am looking forward to seeing my best friend. Whenever we get together, it's just us- full of laughs. She is one person where I laugh till our tummy hurts or till we start coughing and can't breathe. So it will be a nice escape. Plus I am bringing my dog, Chotu. Him and Pablo (best friends dog) can have a get together! Looking forward to it.

something simple and cute to look at- le love blog.
