Things That Are Complicated.
Halloween is this Sunday. On Monday, we have the day off because the French are Le Tired/still striking?/something about dead people/whatevs whatevs. Normally, this would be an incredibly fortuitios occasion. However, Team Africa! has a paper due on Monday, and I have a concert to go to Monday night. You see the issue. Options: 1) Do paper on Friday as soon as I recieve prompt. Party/sleep for...
about Paris continue. I know I should acknowledge my privilege, and just how fucking lucky I am to be here, how grateful (the phone passed back and forth between my cousins and aunts 7 timezones away from me, trying to describe everything I’ve seen, and touched and smelled, explain a place that is only a dot on a map, somewhere those pretty girls go to in the movies, someplace that’s...

Paris: Still Really French.
That’s what I said to my mom when she asked me how Paris was. “Really, really French. I mean it’s lovely, and amazing, but it’s really freaking French.

SERIOUS QUESTION IS SERIOUS.
Why is alcohol + fluoride not a thing? Listerine does not count. I’m serious, they put fucking bacon in vodka (TRUE FACT: I typed “vodka in bacon” first. Priorities!), why hasn’t someone been like “shit if you’re gonna drink 3ish drinks on a Monday, your teeth could benefit at least, since your liver won’t.” SCIENTIST FRIENDS/FRIENDS SLEEPING WITH...

Is This Real Life?
My classes don’t start till 1 or 2:35, so my mornings are free for Adventuring. Today this included coffee, cute boy sightings, vintage clothes shopping, rain, the most delicious salad I have ever eaten. Sterotypical Things I Have Seen In France: People kissing. People kiss ALL THE TIME. I have never seen so much PDA in MY LIFE and I went to High School Parties/frats. Horizontal striped...
Semi-Sober Tour of Paris.
Success. The adventure continues, there is a ton of performance/installation art (!) all around the city till 7 in the morning. I can smell the shenanigans already, and I haven’t even left my room. Also? I am a fucking amazing actress, let me just tell you. They have not yet invented the award for me yet, and I am only a little drunk, why are you asking?
