Not exactly sure what’s going on here...🤔⁣

It’s snowing outside (London-style, so 2 flakes ❄️❄️ ...) and I’ve got Alice in Wonderland and Angelina Ballerina in my 🏡, doing...???

Meditation can take many forms. This morning I did something I haven’t done since I worked at Foreign Affairs in Ottawa. I walked, in the cold, for over an hour and listened to music. I have missed those early morning walks from Rideau centre to 125 Sussex in the middle of winter, the crunch of the snow and the frost in my hair. No one, and I mean no one is outside, and it is the best time to reflect and be in ones own thoughts, it is restorative and healing on so many levels. -
Do something for yourself, get outside and enjoy a walk by yourself! 👊

I knew exactly what I wanted to wear today, yesterday. First thing I did this morning was send my ootd selfie to the boyfriend!

I’m normally a big sucker for navy blue, solid black, or fifty shades of grey especially with the current weather in Scotland. But yesterday was such a great day for me. And when I’m feeling unbelievably ecstatic, I tend to wear something of a very vivid colour the next day like mustard yellow, green, purple or red.

As I was feeling so much love and full of confidence and optimism, I went all for red!

It’s the small things that can make a huge difference in the way I look at life, such as spending time with my best friends, eating my favourite food, hugging my favourite people at work, receiving cute messages from my boyfriend, or bumping into someone I haven’t seen since last year and feel like it’s new year’s day all over again.

To all the wonderful people that bring colour to my life, thank you. I love you!

When the world turns grey, surround yourself with humans that bring joy and colour to your life ❤️

So, today was so inspiring! Najet Adouani, a tunesian journalist and feminist writer visited our arabic literature class and talked about her poetry and her life. She is such an inspiring woman!
She is a woman who was forced to travel because of political issues. Actually she lives in exile right now - here in Germany. And she said that the different places inspire her to write (some of them, not all). Well, this is definetely something I can relate to.

Немного о дубайских проблемах⠀

Друзья, вот и наступает день, которого я страшилась последние несколько лет 🙄

На этой неделе Сашина школа проводит Международный день или, как его скромно назвали, Парад Наций.⠀

Концепция мероприятия обманчиво проста: дети и родители идут за флагом своей страны в национальной одежде или в цветах национальной символики.⠀

Но вот в чем дело. Более 85% населения Дубая - экспаты. Соответсвенно их дети растут здесь, имея паспорта других стран, и часто обладают довольно смутным представлением о своей формальной Родине/Родинах. Таких детей, а потом и взрослых, называют “дети третьей культуры” (third culture kids). С каждым годом таких людей в мире становится все больше в связи с активной миграцией, ростом количества международных браков и большей мобильностью. Саша, Майя и Лена – классические представители этого сообщества. Они родились в Дубае, а в Россию и Америку ездят в гости, но даже не каждый год. При этом они, конечно, не эмирати, потому что растут в экспатской среде, и еще переняли от нас с Дэниелом кучу разных культурных представлений. Они застряли где-то посередине, где мирно уживаются Чебурашка, Элмо и шакшука. В общем, напишу об этом отдельный пост🤓 ⠀
А пока возвратимся к нашей насущной проблеме. Что надеть и с кем идти?⠀
Нужно отдать школе должное, они серьезно подошли к вопросу о флагах и заранее разослали анкету, в которой спросили, с каким флагом/флагами ребенок хочет идти. В прошлом году мальчик с ирландским паспортом шел за флагом ОАЭ, потому что так он себя видит. Саша тоже считает, что она из Дубая. Но согласилась одеть сине-красно-белое платье, что очень удачно, потому что таким образом мы поддержим оба флага 🇷🇺 🇺🇸 😜 ⠀
А я накину на плечи павлопосадский платок и буду угощать народ блинами. Хорошо, когда с культурной идентичностью есть все понятно ))⠀

Day 35 #nomadmoebudapest 
Languages: 🇺🇸🇯🇵🇰🇷

🇺🇸 Recent favorite! #officeoftheday
There're a lot of bookstore-cafes in Budapest…In fact I’ve noticed reading analogue books is much more common here (at least in Czechia and Hungary) than it is in Tokyo. Would love to delve into a good novel myself…

🇯🇵 最近お気に入りの「職場」。ブダペストには本屋カフェが多い印象。チェコにも本屋がいたるところにあって、両国とも日本よりもアナログの本を読んでる人が多いように思う。私も小説でも読みたね〜。

🇰🇷 최근의 “직장”. 부다페스트에는 서점 안에 있는 카페가 많다! 체코에도 헝가리에도 책 읽은 사람 많이 봐서 나도 소설 읽고 싶어 졌다.

Blessed 20th Birthday dearest @joellam99!! ♥

I can’t believe that you’ve hit your twenties! 😱 To think that there was a time where you were tinier than me and I had to watch out for you, making sure that no one would bully you. And now, you’re taller than me and watching out for me! Seriously, where has the time gone?

As you go through the next chapter of your life, I pray that God’s goodness and mercy will continue to follow through the different seasons. Believing that He has great and amazing things in store for you, and I’m so excited to see all these plans come to fruition!
So thankful that you had a night out tonight. Even though the time spent may have been short, I’m glad that we got to celebrate with you on your actual day. God is good!! Happy birthday once again bubs! Welcome to the 20s-club. It’s only up from here. Looking forward to the next 6 years. Bring on the troll gifts buddy! 🌚 Love you always! ♥♥♥ Your (Favourite) Jie 😘

P.S.: Swipe >>> for the epitome of our relationship 😂

Shovelling, the never ending Canadian battle.
-
To those who don’t live with snow, it looks romantic, fun and #fashionable... but really, my childhood memories living in Ottawa revolves around shoveling snow!! Every time I shovel now, I think my Father was pretty brilliant in wanting tropical postings 😂. -

• {great memories}•
It was unbelievable day for us !
I’m so glad for the many message, video, happy birthday to Giada!
We started in the morning with Australia , Oman , saudi , dubai and Rome, puglia, Kuwait , Milan , Sweden, Uk and many other country .....
My daughter is very lucky girl.
I understood that is true :These kids have friends around the world and it’s not impossible to stay connected.
The family always support us in many way .
Thank you for all the love we received.
She had great birthday 💙💙 and me too.
——————
Grazie davvero a tutti .
Mai come quest’anno siamo stati sommersi .
E non c’è nulla di più bello che ricevere un pensiero, una canzone, una frase . Confesso che ricevere gli auguri da amici stranieri conosciuti qui e ora via mi ha particolarmente colpito . La maggior parte sono stati inaspettati . Fino all’ultima telefonata ieri sera alle 20 da parte di Olive Rose . La sua amichetta inglese rientrata da due anni ormai . L’aveva sognata pure nell’ultima settimana “ mamma ho fatto un bellissimo sogno Olive Rose veniva a trovarmi”. Ho sperato tutto il giorno di ricevere un suo messaggio, non ho detto nulla alla sua mamma per pudore . Ma lei invece non ha avuto bisogno che io glielo dicessi. Chi ha figli che come Giada vivono in un posto che è un via vai continuo può capire la mia emozione . Mi sono sentita così grata per tutta questa gentilezza . Un giorno davvero unico 💙💙.

Ever transfixed by the strength and defiance in this piece, conveyed through soft pastels and bold, yet delicate, lines.

In many ways, my (too) brief time in Denver last November was a turning point for moving towards a healing place with my mental health. There's a quip about Third Culture Kids – the gist is that 'normal' people might react to challenges or trauma with a drastic haircut. A drink or several. For us? It's all too easy to make a big move, to run away/towards, to start over and over and over –

As many times as we need to reinvent ourselves, as many times as we've done in the past, to find what/where home is (now), to bask in the familiarity of newness and enjoy, for even a moment, the tranquility and freedom of just being.

LOOK // What do YOU see when you look out the window?
A lot of people say that 4 Kids, 4 Countries, 4 Questions is their favourite part of Continental Kids magazine. It's fun to hear what life is like for TCKs all over the world, isn't it? We are looking for our next four kids to interview for Issue 5: LOOK. Get in touch if your TCKs are between 5 and 10 years and would like to be interviewed in the next issue. .

한국. South Korea (popular name), is a nation of over 50 million people. It is an impressive country with an important role in the technological and industrial sectors. It is also considered as one of the most homogenous countries in the world, with ethnic Koreans being 96% of the total total population. It has also been under constant tension with its neighbor, North Korea, yet it seems to have cooled down for the time being.

I’ve been reflecting on what this lifestyle of travel means to me. A nomadic life is this beautiful intermingling of transcendent awe with the ever-present grief of the transient nature of life. It feels like more than you can hold in your heart, but you do. And you don’t want to see life any other way. You want to feel and experience it all. ✨ . 🌟 📷 Photo from our visit to #MountTakao located in #Hachiōji, #Tokyo, #Japan.
