Where will you be in January?

me

Do you know where you will be in January?  Where you will be living?  What your job will be?  I don’t.  I don’t know if I’ll be in Paris or somewhere else.  I don’t know if I will be employed or not.  Or if I will be taking classes or not.  I don’t know.  I’d like to say that this is liberating but in truth it’s terrifying.  I want to find a job I love in a city I love.  I want so much.  What if I can’t find it?  What if I find nothing or have to compromise too much?  Some days it’s enough to make me want to hide under the covers all day.  But I can’t.  So I go to classes.  I apply to jobs.  I hope and dream and pray.  I try to embrace this uncertainty and to let go of control.  I try to have faith.  But damn is it hard sometimes!  Any advice?  How do you deal with uncertainty?

Lustable: Diptyque Diffuser

DiptyqueUn Air de Diptyque Diffuser

This lustable is a beautiful way to add scent to a room.  This electronic diffuser is not cheap but then it will outlast any candle.  I love products that merge design and functionality and this definitely does this.  You can buy an assortment of Diptyque’s beloved scents to add to the diffuser.  Your house will smell so good you might never want to leave!
