Travel Forums Off Topic That special feeling...

The tingle of excitement as a trickle of cash begins to enter your life and you can start to dream about the next big trip.

Just got to decide when, how, where and who with now....

or will I just spend the money on the other love of my life...shoes.

The answer...A pair of wellies and a trip to wales!

Anyone else having any special feelings today?

I'm one university exam away from finishing my course. And then I've got a months holiday to Vietnam/Cambodia, before starting a great job when I get back. But all that excitement aside, I'm really looking forward to being able to laze around in the sun, without feeling guilty for not being inside reading a textbook!

Special feeling, eh? I think 'I love being me!' does count as a special feeling, doesn't it? After going through a lot I found myself truly on my path, a lot of stuff still to do but for the first time in my life I feel like I really achieved something.
I finished the Shamanic Practitioners course and am working on the practical bit of the Shamanic Counsellor course and it is all falling into place for me at the moment.
It's just very hard not to go up and randomly hug people at work...

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((Universal Hug to all TPers))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Now I have to run, I think I can see the men in white approaching.... And I am not going in again until they bring out short sleeve straight jackets and Lemonade on Sundays!!!!

Okay, that top line is truly scaring me....

On the not so scary side, it's been a long time coming, Phil, so enjoy it!!! (Yes, I know you are and rightfully so!)

I'm not letting them take me unless they have martinis daily and skip the straight jackets unless they make them a bit more stylish and in Hawaiian print. But then again, if they pay my bills while I'm gone (with their money, of course) then I might consider an early intervention. I'll have to think on that some more... That's about as special as the feelings get today.

Being spoiled - flowers, champange, dinner made for me(and actually being able to cook not a ready made meal!) not a concept that l was entirely comfortable with to begin with or at all used too but you know what it definately makes me smile lots and lots!!

Doing the introducing to my friends tomorrow night and thats a bit scary - my friends are important!

That count as special feelings????

I think i'm in love!

But apart from that momentary blip, sadly no special feelings for today (though I did wake up this morning to discovered i had been sleeping in my left arm and it was completely dead, and got all-sorts of strange feeling from that a it came back). However, ask me again tomorrow...

Nat,
I think you need proof. Have your roommate get a tape recording of your Chinese prowess. If true, then I can think of several ways how you became proficient in Chinese. I see you listed Shanghai as a favorite place. Did you become fluent in Chinese while there? That explains that. Or, your subconscious picked it up and you didn't even know it! Or, you have psychic ability and are now aware of it! Or, my personal favorite: reincarnation. Old skill manifesting itself in your sleep. I have no proof, but I am going with the reincarnation option. I like the idea of coming back to planet Earth again. I am quite sure I don't have the credentials for 'heaven' and I am not fond of the other location for eternity. Therefore, reincarnation sounds good to me. As the song says" "that's my story and I'm stickin' to it."
