Welcome to France, Mon Ami! [Paris Edition]

Last weekend I went to Paris in order to meet up with my friend who was coming to France (from America!!!) on his spring break to come visit me, and it was, in a word, awesome. It was his first time in Europe, so no pressure Molly, but you’d better show him all of the […]

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Since I have a really boring day of classes ahead and have spent much of yesterday just retyping my notes from these past three weeks (aka trying to do that every few minutes and then giving up and watching Whose Line is it Anyway? instead), I decided that I would make a physical list of […]

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 6 – 11

I am now back in the United States and have been basically incessantly playing video games or sleeping or eating all of the food they don’t have in France (which is surprisingly a lot). But since it has been about a week since my return, I have almost beaten all of the games I have, […]

Greetings from Frozen Northern France

After a very stressful morning of getting out of our first apartment, getting a rental car and spending far too many Euros on tolls, we arrived in Normandy! Our first stop was at the Normandy beaches, where I thought it would be cool to run into the water, and very quickly changed my mind as […]

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 […]

Field Trip to Cluny

Okay, I promise that my three posts talking about where I went for Toussaint will be coming soon, but for now, I wanted to give you all a little update on where my Histoire d’Art class went for the weekend on our field trip. Unfortunately for us, it was raining almost all day (except for […]

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: […]
