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

And so, our first semester abroad has come to a close. The Language and Culture group took our last final this morning, as well as turned in our last paper so now we are all officially finished with our first semester being French students (or at least trying to be French students). It is actually […]

Wait, It Is Finals Week? ( + Some Updates! )

I am currently writing this all in my iPad as I sit in the Lyon airport waiting for my flight to Lisbon for the weekend! Because I am not smart and completely overestimated the time it would take to get here from my house, I have a nice three hours before my flight leaves so […]

French is Hard But…

Strangely, it is getting easier. I am really happy that I am extending because if I were to go home in three weeks, like most of the other people in my class (don’t leave me guys!!), then I would go home and would probably never use French ever again. At least I can prolong that […]

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 […]

Nuit des Films et un Concert de Rap!

Last Friday night, me and three of my friends went to a night of movies which started at 9 pm and then ended at 7 am. This outing was organized by the city of Lyon as part of their Lumìere 2012 film festival, and was one of the big events of the week of movies […]

Classes Nouveaux + Un Projet + Is It Toussaint Yet???

This past week we started our last group of classes, which is both sad because it means we are almost halfway done with our time for this semester BUT it also means that we are going to start taking real French classes! Even though we are still having all of the same 10 of us […]

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 […]

How to Survive: The Metro

Hi everyone! Sorry for my awkward hiatus and that rushed post that I sent out yesterday night. Things have been absolutely crazy here because I just finished up my first three week class and have been doing a lot of…studying? Not really actually sure what I have been doing, but it has been taking up […]
