I hope everyone is doing well. I apologize for not posting anything since I have been in Paris, but things are crazy here! Well, maybe not crazy. More like life has been a whirlwind of events but in a good way! I’ve made many new friends who I feel like I’ve known for years…even though we’ve only known each other for like two weeks. I think it’s because we’ve been through a lot together (specifically getting lost) so that has made us closer? I don’t know, but I love everyone!
Other than that, life as definitely been very eventful here. When I try to think about what I’ve done the past two weeks, I can barely even recall what happened. I usually have to check my itinerary to remember what happened. Despite the fact that I have trouble remembering what happened (due to fatigue + constant events), I absolutely love it here! Things are slightly different here compared to home but I think I’m getting used to it. For example, people don’t smile around here. That bugged me the first week we were here but now I’m getting used to it. And I’ve picked up the habit of not smiling either! So please excuse me when I come back and I look bored/angry/whatever. It’s just me being neutral. Ah, what a strange habit to pick up but it’s definitely helped me in trying to blend in around here. I even got asked by a French girl where something was located the other day. Of course I didn’t know so I told her, “Oh, je ne sais pas.”
Anyway, since I procrastinated in blogging my first 2 weeks here, I’m going to write down things by date below so you can follow my adventure. Don’t worry! I have a good long term memory so I’ll be able to recall a lot :) so bear with me!
