I'm still here

It's been awhile, I know. I'm neglecting my blog again. My life is incredibly boring most of the time, which makes me wonder why I insist on writing about it. I got nothin' else to do, so why not.
Last Friday, I tried to apply for a job in Italy. Try being the operative word. It seems the federal government has a thing against people applying for jobs overseas unless they already live there or have a relative in the military there. Stupid rules! Granted, I don't know the first thing about living in a foreign country. I don't speak a lick of Italian and getting over there might be a challenge, but damnit I wanted that experience. I'm not saying I'm going expatriate on ya. Hell, I'd be working at an airforce base, so I don't think it's possible. But to just have the experience of living in another country, taking in the culture. I'll keep trying. I don't know if I'll ever win this battle, but I can keep dreaming.

Your Inner European is French!

Smart and sophisticated.

You have the best of everything - at least, *you* think so.

Okay, yesterday's post was a bit lame. I can't guarantee this one won't be as bad.

I'm having a bat mitzvah this fall. It's only a couple decades too late! For those who don't know, the bat mitzvah (it means daughter of the covenant) is a coming of age ceremony where the bat mitzvah leads the service and reads from the torah. It's not necessary, really, but I'm excited about it! It's been a long journey to get here. I guess you can say it's the culmination of a life time of searching. Granted, it's not going to be easy. I've spent the last year trying to learn Hebrew and now I have to learn the tropes in order to chant it properly. Then I have to learn the service. At least I won't be doing it alone. There will be three other women with me (I'm the youngest), so the torah portion will be smaller! This shindig ain't for awhile yet. I'm sure you'll hear more about it as it gets closer.
