Time is flying!

I absolutely cannot believe that it's almost December! I feel like I am finally comfortable in Paris and that it finally feels like home, and now I'm heading into my last couple of weeks of classes. It's so odd to think that in 17 days I will have my master's degree! I am unbelievably sad to see this chapter of my life end, but also very excited to start the next part (if I can find a "grown up" job that is!). It's a bit bittersweet, but I am trying to focus on just enjoying my last few weeks with my new friends here and thinking about how wonderful it will be when Andy arrives! It's been over three months since I've seen him, so it will be wonderful to be able to spend the holidays here with him.... I don't have terribly much to update, I just wanted to post again because I know I haven't in a while. I hope everything is going wonderfully back home and everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving - I had McDonald's because I figured I should do something American. hahaha.

Lots of love to back home!!

Mont Saint-Michel

Bonjour! It has been a long couple of weeks, and I think it's finally starting to catch up to me - I am exhausted! It has been an amazingly fun past couple of weeks though, so I can't complain! I just wanted to write a quick update to let everyone know that I am, in fact, still alive and well in Paris.

Today I went with three classmates on a little road trip to Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy. It was a very very fun day, and a beautiful place.

I have quite a few pictures that I need to catch up with putting on my website, but it is 1am here and I want to go to sleep so it will have to wait for another day soon. I hope everyone is doing well back home and getting excited for the holidays!

Ten Days

The past ten days have just flown by! My dad arrived in Paris to visit me on Friday the 5th early in the morning, and we have been going pretty much nonstop since then.

We did the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Hotel des Invalides, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Saint Severin, Arc de Triumphe, Pantheon, Latin Quarter, Montmartre, Pere Lachaise, Versailles, and I'm sure even more that I am forgetting.... And that's just in and around Paris! He also spent three days in the Netherlands while I was taking exams for school, and we spent three days in Berlin as well.... I was impressed, I had a hard time keeping up with him! haha. It was a very very fun visit, and it was great to be able to share everything I've been experiencing with my dad! I had an amazing time and am so happy he came to visit.

Now it is back to the grind with an exam Tuesday morning, and classes picking up a bit more as I head towards the end of the semester. I will update again soon!

Hi! I'm still alive. I just don't really have anything to blog about. Since returning from Lyon studying for exams has kind of overtaken my life, so I've been doing a lot of schoolwork and just enjoying the day to day experiences of living in Paris and spending time with my friends here.
Time is absolutely flying by - I can't believe my trip is half over. It's hard because half of me wants it to go quickly because I miss everyone back home so badly, yet the other half of me wants it to go very slowly because it's so amazing here and I'll never have this chance again. If I could just bring you all over here it would solve this problem and I would probably stay forever :)
Well, back to the studying!

......or maybe I'll procrastinate by putting my pictures from Lyon on my website finally!
