School is no longer out for summer (June 5, 2013)
Today was my first day of classes. I got up super early because there was an excursion before class at 9am to go see a couture exhibit at the city hall. It was really cool and what not, but I don’t think I’m into fashion enough to justify getting up that early and only getting about 5 hours of sleeps. It’s safe to say I am fairly exhausted and am going to be going to bed pretty soon!
After we got back to the center from the exhibit, I went to go get lunch with some people in the program at La Croissanterie, one of the restaurants that we get free lunch tickets for. Normally I have been getting the sandwich with curry and chicken on it, but today I tried the chicken sandwich that had coleslaw on it, and it was pretty good! After lunch, I headed back to the center and uploaded all of my pictures to Facebook (yay!). Class started at 1:30, and there is probably around 12 people in my class. We just read an article in class about francophone countries etc. Class got out at 4:30, and I just walked home.
I went to a cafe across the street from my apartment to complete my 40 some pages of reading that are due tomorrow. I ordered a diabolo, which is pretty much some sparkling lemon juice with some syrup for flavoring. I got strawberry, and it was delicious.
From there, I headed to the supermarket. It was pure chaos. I just bought some cheese, chicken, and a kiwi to eat with some of my bread that was left over from my little picnik by the Seine last night. Becca made some noodles, and shared some with me.
I finally saw my host mom and sister for the first time since Sunday, and was finally able to give them their gifts. I think my host mom is going to try and make some chicken wild rice soup with the wild rice I gave her. We shall see how that turns out! We have a family dinner on Sunday night! Woohoo!
I think me and Erin have decided that we are going to go to southern France for our free weekend. We are planning on going down to Marseilles, and then taking a train over to Cassis, a little coastal town. However, we cannot find any hotel openings at the moment, so we are going to finalize details, and then start looking for housing. We would like to use our one excused absence that Monday so that we have an extended weekend. We shall see! I am going to talk to my teacher and see if that is a possibility.
I also think I might have some sort of stress fracture or something. My foot starts to throb when I walk long distances. Hopefully that will go away soon.
I am exhausted, and I am going to go to bed. I feel like this blog post was very dull, and for that I am sorry. I will make up with it with some pictures from St. Malo, and my time so far in Paris!
my little picnik by la Seine!
Really nice shot, you look so happy!
