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, […]

First Semester: Finished

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 […]

“Je suis désolé”

Wow. So it has definitely been way longer than 10 days since I last wrote a post about my time here in France. Luckily, I am still alive, I have just been really, really busy. Anyway, here is another blog post for y’all in case you are interested in keeping up with my journey! For all of […]
