I’ve not blogged for a while and whilst I wish I could say it’s because I’ve off doing exciting things, it’s not. I’ve just been living life, although that is an exciting thing in itself I guess.
So here we are. Nearly at the end. I have one week left of teaching, just one week. I’m going to be ever so sad, I’ll probably cry because that’s just what I do when I leave places. I can’t believe I’ve made it through this year. Looking back to my first posts I could so easily have packed it all in but I didn’t, I stayed strong and now look! I’m having the time of my life and feeling ever so sad to leave this place.
Carcassonne is an experience I will never forget. When people say that their year abroad is the best year of their life I used to think “yeeeh whatever” but now I totally understand. It’s not just the opportunity to be in the country where your interests and the key to your degree lie, it’s also the opportunity to meet so many new people, live a different culture and experience new things.
I’ve recently decided that when I am contemplating doing something I must ask myself “pourquoi pas?” (“why not?”) if I can’t think of a valid reason then I’m throwing caution to the wind and just going for it. You only live once and you might only get the opportunity once!
In other news, I got stung by a bee for the first time and I have never felt a pain like it! Christ on a bike it hurt so badly. I sat outside the café and I was nearly in tears it was that painful. My poor thumb swelled a bit and I thought my arm was going to fall off! New experiences aren’t always great, I guess!
