So yes, the day finally came and here I am in Paris, looking out with lots of excitement, and only a little trepidation, onto the coming semester.
It's going to be a very busy few months - lots of studying, applying for jobs, but hopefully lots of fun too. I'm going to take it day by day, getting over those little daily challenges one by one, as they crop up... (which I'm fully aware that they will. Things like getting one of those terrifying moments like when you're mid-sentence and you have a complete mind-blank about what gender the noun that you want to use is. Do you try your luck with the 50-50 chance or rack your brain to come up with another word?)
Anyway, my plan is to visit/see/purchase/participate in something gastronomic or alcoholic (or even better, both!) every week, which I will duly write up afterwards so you can experience it vicariously through me.
