Gwenn-ha-du

Gwenn-ha-du et moi

 

There’s a little bit of manque-age going on.

 

Gee. Thanks, Starbucks.

12 Jul

I just used a Starbucks bathroom and it reminded me of something I love about the US but had forgotten in my time away: hands free toilets. The ones with the automatic flush so you don’t have to touch the lever with your hand or even the bottom of your shoe. Yay for cleanliness! haha

Another thing I’m happy about is something that has changed while I was gone: free wi-fi at Starbucks. No longer do you have to pay out your ass for AT&T wi-fi. Free wi-fi for all!

On a sidenote- I just remembered a couple things that I’ve been meaning to mention for ages just because I think they’re sort of funny. #1. The majority of toilet paper in France is pink, and #2. “Wi-Fi” in France is phonetically pronounced “We-Fee.” How cute.

Vous me manquez.

14 Jun

I’ve missed you blogosphere! I can’t believe today marks the end of my second week back in the US.

Since I last posted I have missed France unbearably, uncovered mildy incriminating photographs (that’s you Trixie! teehee!), put a shitload of my mom’s overflow of possessions on craigslist, emptied a FULL storage unit in sweltering (humid) heat, visited my cousin’s family in the hospital after his wife gave birth, celebrated my 21st birthday belatedly with my family, cheered on my team in the world cup (go USA!), procured a summer job working at only the coolest kid’s store, and yet despite all the stuff that has happened I still feel like I just got off the plane.

I miss you France. I miss you Bretagne. I miss you Rennes. I miss you Erasmus.

My heart is full of love when I think back on the past year. I wish that none of us had to leave, but the leaving is what makes us realize how special the past year has been. And if we’re lucky, we’ll meet again. Je vous aime.

bisous
