Story Hour

Hi friends! I have been updating my blog recently with just plans and random, general class information but now I believe that it is time for story hour, aka a bunch of the random things that have happened since I have been back but don’t merit their own subsection of the blog. The following are […]

First Week of Real French School

I got back to France after two wonderful, and extremely short, weeks at home where I got to visit my friends from ~all over Southern California~. Right as I was about to leave, the weather jumped up to 80 degrees (of course) after having been a neutral 65 the entire time I was there. However, […]

Paris: Days 1 – 5

Even though school in Lyon has come to a close, I am still in Europe for another two weeks with my family in Paris! Although it is kind of a bummer not be be able to be home and seeing everyone in California for another two weeks while everyone else posts Facebook updates at the […]

Well Guys, I Have Some News…

When I first came to France, I wasn’t really that excited about it. I mean, I was excited but I knew that I would just come back home after a few months, and who really cares about the French language, ammirite? It probably happened somewhere around the middle of October when the other students were […]

Toussaint: Berlin

Hallo again! This post is going to be all about the time that I spent in Berlin, but unfortunately for me, I was only there for about two days before I had to come home to Lyon (still not a bad place to HAVE to come back to; I mean, look at this). Berlin is […]

Toussaint: Prague

Okay, I am finally getting around to writing posts for the Toussaint week even though I have been back for two weeks…sorry about that! Classes are really busy after a break because they want to be able to cram in two weeks worth of information into one day of class, so I’ve been listening to […]

Toussaint: Barcelona

Before we begin: three things. First of all, Barcelona is beautiful! Second of all, Barcelona is CRAZY. Third of all, Barcelona has a bunch of political and cultural problems that I didn’t even know existed (which is kind of upsetting since my major is International Studies with an emphasis in EUROPE). Okay, first things first. […]

Sick in France + Movies

So after Saturday’s post where all I did was complain about being sick here in France, my host mom has taken care of me hardcore! She came into my room on saturday and saw me curled in a ball, coughing and not being able to speak and then she made me BOWLS of tea (see: […]

3 Weeks of Class, 1 Week of Toussaint Plans and 1 Night Where I Got Really Sick

Hi everybody! Sorry for the hiatus, but I just finished up my last intensive language 3 week long class, so I finally have some time to update this blog. Even though honestly not much has been happening in my life that really calls for a blog entry, I thought that I would just update y’all […]

A Day in Beaujolais

Yesterday, on 29 September, the UC EAP Lyon program planned a trip for all of the kids in my program to go to Beaujolais and meet a French family who makes bread and makes wine…in their home in Provence. Basically, the coolest thing ever. Beaujolais is about an hour away, so we all got onto […]
