Not a good start

Ok. Somehow i already messed it up. But im determined. I will keep trying.

Anyway. Im getting ready to leave for India in about 10 days. I have never been to India and I am so excited and scared i can hardly stand it. I know nothing about the country. Seriously. Nothing. One of the people going with us is an Indian friend of mine and when i asked him if i needed to.wear a head covering and cover my face he asked me where I thought I was going? He then informed me that India is not Muslim (duh me!) That it was Hindu. Ummmm. Right? The difference is????? Yea, i know i should know this stuff but hey. Im learning. Hell, when i first moved to London I thought England wss the same size as America. I know, I should have paid more attention in World History. Ok. Lesson learned on both counts. So now i am googling the heck out of India and finding out as much as i can. If there is a counter intelligence agency somewhere monitoring me, please note, Im not stupid or a threat, just American. Southern American at that.

Not that all southern American people are thick or uninformed I just happen to be all of the above.

Ok. So Im excited. And Im nervous, and i will keep posting as to how i am dealing with both of those.emotions.

So. Whats it all about? This week its going to be about education.

What Im learning about India.
What Im learning about myself.
What Im learning about the difference between the two.

And so it begins

Ok. Not really sure how to work but Im going to give it a shot. If you have a pet peev about grammer and spelling you might want to step away from the blog immediately as i am sure its goibg to be loaded with them. But there a reason. I have a wonderful but horribly busy life so just finding the time to think about doing this has been time consuming. Time i dont usually have. But i have akways wanted to have a blog so here goes.

I am a southern girl. Born and raised in Dallas Texas and then Atlanta Georgia so I am as southern as it gets really.

The kicker is I now live in London England and I have to say I feel like I live the most amazing life I could have ever dreamed of.

So some background. I am one of 5 siblings. They all still live in either Dallas or Atlanta. My parents are still in Dallas but I am trying to rectify that for them right now actually.

I am next to the youngest and have two brothers and two sisters. My oldest sister (the one still in Dallas) is autistic. The one younger than me is my little brother.

We are all very close and that is the only bad part i can find about living in London. Besides the weather that is and believe me it is rotten at least 9 months out of the year.

But can i just say i LOVE living here! I live my dream everyday. Every moment. My mom said that when i was a little girl I use to say i was going to live in England which i have to say was a big joke to my family. NO ONE in my family had EVER lived overseas. At least not out of choice! Yes, my brother wsd on
