Okay my final post about spring break. Sorry it’s taken so long. Busy girl ova hurr! But anyways so we left Rome and took the train to Florence. When we got there we were all pretty tired but we walked around and saw a few things such as the Duomo. Then we ate dinner at a cute restaurant and went back to the hostel where we watched side effects. The next day was our big sightseeing day. We...
Spring Break Part II: Roma Roma Roma!
Okay so after our wonderful time in Sorrento, we trained up to Rome. It was actually so much pretty than I expected. A lot greener than bland grey/beige Paris. It was cool seeing how old everything actually was. Our first day there we checked into the hostel and headed over to the colosseum. Took some pics, went in for like 12 euro wtf. Then we wandered around and got dinner. I got baked...
Spring Break Pt. 2 "Bonjourno Italia" (Sorrento...
Okay so I most definitely shouldn’t be writing this now. And I most definitely should be writing my 20 page paper (in French). But it’s due in 3 weeks so I guess that can wait. Plus I just had a massively long dinner with my host mom and the other exchange student where we drank two glasses each of the wine I brought back from Italy so I’m no slightly tipsy and tired….Yes I...
So as I’m currently sitting at my hostel in Rome, I’ve decided to break my spring break up into two parts: A Greece post and an Italy post. Because we’ve already done so much and we’ve still got a week left. Here’s our route for the 2 week spring break: So we left on Thursday night. I conveniently have my internship in a Paris suburb on Thursdays so I had to lug...
Finally done with Midterms!
I’ve been busy studying and working on projects (well kind of not really. I like to think I’ve been busy doing that). Most of them went well except my history midterm. I will literally jump for joy if I get a 13/20 which translates as a B on a U.S grading scale. Don’t know if I’ll even get that though because I left two answers completely blank. Erin was in Paris this...
things i take for granted back home
consistently working wifi eggs water being able to stand up in the shower being able to take a shower with out holding the shower head above you social media having a car the gym tv a printer okay so I know most of those are technology related, but you have no idea how frustrating it is not to have a printer in your house!

Back At It
Sorry I haven’t written in here forever. I probably wouldn’t have written in here anyway but I’m putting off homework and a much needed run. My body feels like it’s been run over by a bus from going out on Friday night. It’s sunday, so I should be feeling better by now but I guess not. My family just left. They were here for two weeks. It was awesome having them...
Thursday Shazia and I went to the Saint Germain de Près area which is so cute. It’s very chic. We went to Ladurée and got the new flavor of macaroon and I bought perfume at the Fragonard shop. Then we got coffees at a café and people watched for a while which is always so much fun. Thursday night we went out to a bar called The Mazet. It was like an anglophone bar so it was really fun....
First Free Weekend in Paris
Sorry I haven’t had a chance to blog. Since I know my many followers have been patiently waiting for an update *cricketz*….anyways. My wifi is pretty shotty so it’s always a struggle to get on tumblr (or really I’m being distracted by made in chelsea). But this weekend I had my first free wekend in Paris. No group activities or visitors so I was definitely excited to hit...
Can’t get enough of this show. I should be outside because it’s a beautiful day in Paris but this is nursing my hangover instead.
first craving for american food
Okay, so in no way shape or form is this entry going to explain my trip to Dublin this weekend. It was absolutely amazing but I’ll try to explain what went down. So we had a 9:20 flight Friday morning from Paris Beauvais. It’s about an hour ride to the airport and the bus shuttle suggested we take the 620am bus so I woke up at 4:45am on Friday which was rough to say the least. We flew...
Julia visits Paris!
This weekend Julia came to Paris. It was so good to see a familiar face! Kind of like a little bit of home which is always nice when you’re feeling a little homesick. So basically I got to play tourist all over again. Now I’ve seen most of Paris for a second time (not many people can say that). I totally surprised myself by how well I navigated the city and the metro. I knew I could...
First week in Paris
Okay, so let me start off by saying in no means to I consider myself a “blogger”. Especially since I haven’t even written in here once since I’ve arrived. haha. So by all means if you’re expecting something great, just stop here. I pretty much just started this as something to pass the time and remember my trip by, plus I already had the blog from my first trip to...
6 days. I’m getting so excited and nervous. I started packing this week and my suitcase is already overflowing. I guarantee I forget something so this should be interesting. At least my departure is rapidly approaching. I have become an expert at the couch potato life this past month. It’s really sad seeing everyone back at school having fun and seeing pictures from the people who are...
France Round 2
Starting this back up again! I leave for study abroad again Feb 10th. This time I’ll be in Paris and instead of a month, I’ll be there for five months! I’m feeling a mixture of excitement and nerves but I’m definitely ready for a change of pace after spending the holidays with family and friends!
Today we had la quenelle for dinner. It was my second dinner with my host family. It is a famous dish from Lyon and it’s very french. I really like it and I’ve never heard of it before. It’s defined as: A quenelle is a mixture of creamed fish, chicken, or meat, sometimes combined with breadcrumbs, with a light egg binding. It can be served vegetarian or “nature.”
My first tumblr post. Getting ready to leave for Arles, France tomorrow for the next month. I thought this would be a cool way to keep track of my experience. Pretty much my first time out of the country other than my day trip over the border of mexico! ; ) I’m really looking forward to all the food, clothes, sightseeing, and of course the language!
