Aside

Party Animal

4 Nov

Well haven’t I just been a lazy punk lately. Plenty of things happen everyday but I’m just too lazy to blog about it.

School has been going well for the most part–it’s pretty routine, though I still enjoy it a lot. Writing is still getting me down. I’m not the best writer in English, let alone French, and my limited vocabulary isn’t helping. But I’m hoping that my classes will help with this because it’s something I’ve struggled with for a long time.

However this past Thursday, November 1st was Toussaint (All Saint’s Day) so this meant that I got a mini vacation! And by mini vacation I mean that I went out almost every single night (Tuesday-Saturday) until 6 in the morning. So much for traveling. BUT on the other hand I’ve made friends with some Frenchies so I’ve been able to practice my French and it has improved so much.

Halloween was a lot of fun, well actually Hallows eve was fun. We Americans all dressed up and went to this huge club. I was a princess, and I know, I know, I’m a princess in real life this wasn’t really a change. There is no disputing that. But it was the best thing I could come up with on short notice. Thank god for the two Claire’s stores less than a mile from my apartment. The night of Halloween my French language exchange partner invited me to a huge rave that he helped organize for his university. But this time I was a pirate! Another makeshift costume. It was so great.

Oh yeah, I have a language exchange partner through one of the universities here. We speak half of the time in French and the other half in English so that we both get practice.

Other than that things are going really well here and I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 months. The time is flying by way too quickly. I love it so much here and I already know I want to come back.
