In several past posts I've referred to my treasured survival guide; a Christmas present I got from my mom last year, when this was all just a dream. At the time I wasn't too excited, well come one - I was as excited as any kid would be to unwrap a book on Christmas morning! But now that my dream is my everyday life, the book has become sacred to me.
I'm the kind of person who likes to know the plan. I like lists and graphs, anything organized. In the guide there are two graphs that represent what I'll go through throughout the year. Seeing my sentiments on a page, with a past and future, just makes me feel stable. I like to know what will come in the months ahead and I find being told what I'm experiencing now, comforting.
Well I figured with all the references I make, I'd do you all a favor and show the actual graphs! A scanner or excel would have probably worked better, but I'm just a "paint"-er at heart. ha ha get it? No but really, I just can't figure out either of the former options... Anyway, this has been needed on my blog for awhile now but better late than never, right?
Both graphs were copied out of The Exchange Student Survival Kit Second Edition by Bettina Hansel.
