Changes, Oddities, Random

Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t really like change. I like things the way they are usually, and sometimes have a problem working through big changes in life. Over the past year, I have gotten much better with this, I have learned to embrace change, look forward to it, make the best of it. I mean, change is all around us, especially in Jerusalem. Just two weeks ago, it was hot, humid, and i was complainign about how warm I was, and then, within an instand the weather changed, it’s gloomy, rainy, windy and cold. CHange. I went from living alone to having a roommate, Change. I went from havign fun, enjoying myself, having free time, to being in school for 12 hrs. a day, in HEbrew. Change. I went from Michigan to Israel, Change. I went from English to Hebrew, Change. I went from a place i knew to an unknown place, Change. And, the more I’m realizing it, this is what life is all about. Life is about changes, it’s about going with the flow, the natural changes that happen and embracing change. Just as I can’t fight the change in the weather, so too, I cant’ fight the changes that happen in the grand scheme of things in my life. I am coping well with all the changes, growing, and smiling, so I guess that’s a good thing… although I do miss the comforts of home, of a steady, dependable life, but i guess that wouldnt’ be fun!
Oddities: Israel is full of things I find odd, random for amusing. For instance, you can buy beer almost anywhere, in a coffee shop, at a falafel stand, single bottles at the little macolet, absolutely everywhere. And people here drink it just about everywhere too. Also, i find it odd to see really orthodox men walking around in their full on garb with little white wires and headphones standing out like a sore thumb from them. The IPOD is a must have accessory here along with crocs of any color that don’t match your outfit. I find it strange that people have all of the sudden begun wearing winter scarves, hats and coats and it’s still ike 65 degress outside… i undesrtand it’s colder but still. And there are more, but shabbat is nearly upon us, so I must go and get ready… more to come later! LOTS OF LOVE TO ALL and SHABBAT SHALOM! Comment so I know you’re reading!! Be well, stay warm, go blue, and I hope the tigers can get it together!
