There are so many reasons why moving to France is going to be awesome for me. I was speaking french with people from Switzerland last night, one of which is from Marseille and it got me excited! I was really hoping I could leave at least a month before my new job started so that I could visit people that I know all over Europe, but I don't think it's going to work out that way.
My lucky brother is getting married to a lucky gal this year and I can't miss it! I know everything is going to work out, I just have anxiety about how it will all pan out since their wedding might fall really close to my departure date. There is so much coordinating, organizing and preparation to be done my heart beats a little faster thinking about it.
Stop me if I'm sounding too happy, but there really isn't any reason for me not to go. Of course I will miss my parents and my brothers and my nieces and the people in my everyday life here, but it will not be forever. In fact, I may come back a more appreciative and better person. Just another chapter in my book. Moving to France is a decision I will never regret.
Even though in total I've spent maybe 20 weeks of my life in the south of France, there is so much that is still unknown. What I am most excited about is getting to know my, so close yet so far, family in France. I can't believe I finally get to know my uncles, aunts, cousins and their children so much better. It's unfortunate that my grandparents are no longer living, I would have loved to bond more with them, but I was lucky to spend quality time with them before they passed away. I have family in Italy too, I don't know them but it would be amazing to reconnect with them.
