As is often the situation while traveling, I highly doubt I will be able to describe in detail every amazing occurance however I am making a strong and well thought out resolution to write at least once a week on this blog! If the rumours are true, school is not so difficult in France; therefore, this should be a relatively realistic aspiration
Today I feel particularly relaxed and awesome, due to the fact that I just moved from my residence to a house with international and french students. Apparently the concept of living in a residence is really not the same in France as in Canada, and you basically wind up paying way too much to live in a sub-par bedroom where nobody socializes. I learned quickly that life is much better when paying half the price to live in a cute French apartment with other students. Luckily, I was able to overcome copious amounts of French beaurocracy (yes - the stereotype is alarmingly true), to get out of my residence contract and move in to a lovely little house. I now am living with two Italian girls, one French girl, one Spanish girl, and apparently a Moroccan guy who nobody ever sees. The great thing about this arrangement is that the common language between all of us is...you guessed it..
It is just about noon here, so in hopes that at least a few people will have woken up by now, I am going to get ready and get a few things for my new room...I really don't want to sleep with multiple sweaters and a hood tonight, so purchasing a blanket would probably be a good idea... anyways, a bientot!
