I don't want to jinx it. Proper testing has not been done of whether writing about good new on blogs makes them not come true. I guess I will take the risk to tell you.
American University of Paris, my school here, has agreed that we need a coffeehouse on campus, and they are willing to invest in remaking one of their buildings into a space for student to enjoy ethical coffee. Guess who they want to oversee the opening and management of the cafe? Yours truly. What an amazing opportunity. I couldn't have gotten what I dreamed for if I had planned it myself.
Maybe that is the ultimate reason for feeling nostalgic, just so happy that I continually am blessed with wonderful opportunities. I will keep writing, hopefully more often now that my papers are almost finished. This semester I wrote an analysis of Nestle's corporate social responsibility policies, my proposal for my thesis complete with bibliography, a historical overview of the evolution of Vietnam and their relationship with the United States since 1975, and my next hurdle is a paper on the civil society of Iran and why the United States should absolutely not go to war with them.
