PAR(ad)IS

Time has been going so fast lately! It feels like ages ago that I arrived in France, and yet it hasen't been more than about 3 months. Bizarre. When that is said, I've been feeling a bit strange lately, regarding the weather and the approaching Christmastime. Last week was sunny and surprisingly warm - 18 degrees! As the lownmower at the university's campus was constantly in use, the familiar smell of cut grass made me think of anything except Christmas. Even though there is a massive christmas three in the centre, so far that doesn't help much. But one thing is for sure. When I'm having a Christmas "workshop" with my two "vikings" the 1th of December, there will be a christmas spirit forced upon us. That's decided.

However, what actually did get me in the right mood to start the Christmas preparations was my trip to Paris. I have to write some lines about my week-end in the capital. It's funny, because I never get tired of visiting that city, and each time I go, I discover something new, something different. And of course, I never get tired of visiting my friends. Although this time was rather different. I didn't speak any English!! Being able to speak with my french friends for the first time in their own language was nothing but a happiness boost. And as I was writing down words and expressions the whole week-end in my "carry-around-notebook", I am sure I learned much more than after a week at school! I feel home in Paris. Much because of my friends who welcome me every time, but also because I feel that I fit into the whole picture. Hard to explain, but that's how it is. Hopefully I'll be living in Paris next year..  Oh and about the christmas spirit! It was definitely present in the streets and the cafés, and not to mention in all the shops. And it worked! It got to me for a while. Now I just have to wait for it to reach the south.

 

Right now, I'm looking forward to;

  • Visiting my good friend Alice in Lille this week-end!!
  • Watching two of my friends performing a play at school
  • Building a ginger bread house with Simon and Martin
  • Being done with my exams, which start next week
  • FLYING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!!<3  

 

Have a good week - with or without a proper christmas feeling xx

Jeg tror du begynner å bli litt fransk, Jeanette!;-) Så urolig gøy at du klarte å snakke fransk med de franske vennene dine, det er jo litt av en bragd!

Gleder meg til å se deg i jula, og høre deg si noe fantastisk på fransk! Klem:-)
