Congratulations! and Move out!

Published Friday, 6 July 2012 by Sydney Sunny

This is a Congratulations to me. I am writing this in advice, but I am scheduled to move out today from me room in Amiens. Although, I have has hard times in Amiens, I love Amiens. I could never survive living in Paris or a larger city. This is a great place to visit, and the love of Gothic is here. The cathedral makes me fall in love with Gothic every time I pass by it! It is my love! And my room is a safe place. I have pictures of letters from loved ones, drawings, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright bags and Animals on my bed. I made it a cozy little hole in the wall. But, I will strip it and say goodbye.

Anyways, I am moving out. I have gathered a lot of things while staying in France -somethings to live, somethings for pleasure, somethings from friends. I have  to give some away and keep only the most important things. It is a lot of work, but refreshing.  I get to start a new life, again. It is like I left but never did. I changed but the same. My experiences here in France will become a dream.

BUT! My adventures will not end! I have a few post that I have not done. I never got around to writing them. And also, I will have new adventures before I leave France on Tuesday!

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’s ticket for the Paris Tea Party! Wish #55 luck for the  lottery!

I have be picked for the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Tea Party in Paris! I will get to meet and see again many people! There are going to be lolitas from all around the world!

I will go to Japon Expo, the biggest Japanese culture convention in Europe, on Sunday with my expert friends! I hope to see my family again too!

The last day, I will then go to the Lolita Convention in Paris! Plus, my name was drawn for the Angelic Pretty Tea Party in Paris! The Tea Party will be held at the Ritz in Paris! Amazing!

My name is drawn for the Angelic Pretty Tea Party in Paris!

Finally, on the 10th I will have to leave early in the morning to get on my plane back to the HOT land of America. I hope my tears will not fall to badly on this day. I will arrive home in the evening after another plane. I will be extremely jet-laged from living in another time zone, tired mentally, very busy with school work and also home life, and stressed about fitting back into the American culture.
So, I will have to blog when I can, and I will try to post great things. But like I said, it might be a little bit of a wait! Stick with me please!

Thank you for your prayers and support!

PS: Visit Totoro often!

After the rain came  the afternoon sun. Marine took Yumi and me on a walk to the near by beach. The walk was so nice after eating lunch. We walked to a little harbor for boats, and we continued across a bridge to the beach.

In the harbor, where the light changed in every wind blow.

The sun  was dancing in the water because of the wind. And once on the beach, the movement of the waves, light, and wind became a dance. I remember mostly the movement- our dresses blowing in the wind, running away from the waves, climbing on the rocks, walking in the sand.

The crashing waves behind us never got us.

I have somehow lost my pictures on my computer of the day. I hope, they are just out of sight, not lost. But, I have Marine’s pictures. Her camera takes multiple pictures and seems to catch every movement. I made these gif. of movement from the time on the beach.

Marine didn’t make the picture on time.

Marine made the picture in time.

It is hard for me to imagine that just behind me -respectably- is my home. My home far, far away from there on that beach. How can the world feel so small and large at the same time? Now, this, this is a different kind of movement- a movement of awe and wonder.

So small and large.
