Hi friends! I’m finally home – here in south Florida. It feels amazing to be back. It’s actually a funny feeling. I feel as if I had never left in the first place… Everything (luckily for me) remains in the same old ways that I’m used to. Now, reflecting on this past semester, what I … Continue reading My Last Thoughts
Hello everyone! This is already my last week in France before heading back to America. I’m actually really excited to be going back home. I miss Florida so much…my friends and family, the beach, the sunshine, and just my life/routine in general. Now seeing things in hindsight, I take back what I said in the … Continue reading Last Week in France
Hi friends! This is officially my last month in Reims. When the weather starts to get (steadily) nice, sunny, and warm, and the town is finally more lively, I have to go back. But honestly, I feel a little happy about returning to the US. I have some really exciting plans for my last summer … Continue reading Finals ahead
Last weekend, me and my friends took a break from studying and preparing for finals and decided to finally go on a champagne tour (since we live in Champagne). Most of the exchange students did that in their very first month here, as we should have done when we were completely free. But you guys … Continue reading When in Champagne… champagne!
Hello my lovely readers. Remember how I said Spring had officially started in Reims? I take that back. It has been raining every single day again. I am so ready for some steady sunlight. It’s kind of funny to look back and remember how excited I was for cold/cloudy/rainy weather. Having lived in Brazil and … Continue reading Waters of March
Today, after coming from my last class of the week (I always have Fridays off – what a blessing!) I took the rest of the day to clean and organize my room, cook, and do some groceries. I needed to get my life together because I can’t even think properly if my room is not … Continue reading Here Comes the (French) Sun
Hi everyone! Last Sunday I got back to Reims after spending time in Scandinavia for spring break. It was truly one of the best spring breaks of my life! Well, I am not quite sure if the word “spring” applies that much to my break since we experienced snowfall and low temperatures every day. But … Continue reading Back to Reality
Hello everyone! This week at Sciences Po was tough. That's why it took me a while to write this week. There are so many things happening at the same time. I am talking about presentations, quizzes, more presentations, and heavy reading load. I honestly don’t do much throughout my week other than that, so nothing … Continue reading Let the Festivities Begin – Scandinavian Spring Break!
When it gets a little boring in Reims, we go to Paris. So that’s what my friends and I did last weekend. It was so much fun! We visit the Eiffel tower, walked around Champs Elysées, visited the L’arc de Triomphe, went to Quartier Latin, Saint Germain, and finally, the Musée du Louvre. As I … Continue reading Week 5.
It’s so crazy that I’ve been in Reims already for almost one month. Time is passing really fast and I am loving every minute of it. My classes are going great, but the readings are starting to pile up a bit. I will take this upcoming week to sit down and catch up with all … Continue reading 1 month down, 4 to go!
