Quotes About Paris


Finding Motivation Through Quotes

Why am I doing this again? With trying to plan but realizing that you actually need to be there to plan, I have been losing motivation. I am not quitting, but it’s hard to just sit here and wait. I’ve planned just about everything that I can think of. I’ve looked at flights, jobs, and apartments. I’ve been researching what paperwork I need and trying to get that in order. And I’ve sat and just planned what I can plan, which is not very much! With three months to go, I would have thought that I would have more to do, but I guess already being a citizen means that I have less work than others. In the meantime, I just look up what I can about Paris and try to feel useful, even though it is just day dreaming. As of now, what excites me the most are quotes or sayings about my future home. Here is a list of quotes that I liked about Paris.
