I cannot wait to start my French tomorrow!!
I took the placement test Tuesday and got the results back today. I did surprisingly well and enrollled in a level of French that I think equates to 3rd year, second semester back home. I also think I scored high enough to take a French business class and also the new tourism class!! How perfect would that be?!
My buddy Kim is in the same level as I am, so we have all the same classes!! She went downtown with me yesterday and we toured the château and checked out les soldes. At les soldes (A giant, semi-annual sale) I bought myself a pair of boots; an essential here in France! I’m also going to try buy a coat in the next two weeks as the sales get better.
[Just met my host sister as I was writing this. I was beginning to wonder if she existed. She seems nice, looks just like her mom]
Other than that I really don’t have much to write about. Yesterday I planned to go to a karaoke bar with a USAC girl and her host sister. They called me up and said they would be here in 10 minutes so I should go stand outside. After 12 minutes I rushed out and there was no one there. So I waited 20 minutes in a dress, while it was freezing out. I spend the last 10 minutes crouched on the ground in the fetal position, trying to keep warm. I kept trying to call, but it said the number was not good. Finally I came inside and waited an hour…nothing. So I went to bed very disappointed. However, today was better and I am even more optimistic about tomorrow!
Hope you are all well! Wrote some of you postcards today!
