This is apparently a vietnamese saying. I am not sure all the origin, except for that it refers to when something is the same, but different.
That is how I feel these days looking ahead.
We are for sure in Gainesville for another year. We are very excited about this. But we will be done with our training in May. So really we get a bonus year with our students and the staff. Same same but different
We are officially staying at our apartment for this upcoming year. I had not considered moving out of this apartment since we moved here. But the idea of renting a house and having a washing machine and dryer a few steps away sounded dreamy. However, we are staying but for a shorter lease and we are no longer the show unit. Mostly we love being the show unit, since it means $100 less on our rent every month. Our property management has just decided not to show occupied units. Shucks. Same same but different.
We are going overseas for 6 weeks this summer. Nothing similar about it, just different. We are SO excited and are going to Charlotte, NC for missions orientation this weekend for that trip.
And Atlanta has been our most visited destination this year. We are going again, but this time for a week to serve the homeless with our students for spring break.
I would love to share more and be altogether more interesting. But there is much to do!
