Spring has finally seemed to come, all be it reluctantly, on the part of the weather here. These past few months have been interesting and fun to say the least. Leaving France in a month and a half is definitively going to be bittersweet. I've met some amazing people here and have had some great times. Studying abroad as a whole has been a great experience. I still have some issues with the academic program at the university here, and I regret not "shopping around" so to speak and investigating different study abroad options. I feel I probably could have found something better. But at the time it was the easiest & cheapest option available. My french has still improved so much since coming over. I'm really looking forward to getting back to Millersville and continuing my studies. I've got all my classes picked out for next semester and it's looking like it's going to be a great semester!! I get asked a lot "which do you like better France or America?" and honestly I don't know how to respond...I like certain things in France better than in the US and vice verse, so it's hard to say. I'm looking forward to going back home, but only because I know eventually I'll make my way back to France. I don't know that I would be content living here full time but coming back for work/studies/travel is a must. 

The nice weather makes me so excited for summer and everything I love about summer. The trips to jacobsburg, the dog park, the drive in. seeing all my friends from high school all back in town for a little while. I guess this summer will be more meaningful as we have a lot of lost time to catch up on. 

The following weeks should prove to be hectic. I'll be going to Monte-Carlo next week for a few days, thankfully these spring break plans still seem to be panning out, since the euro rail pass was a waste of money. After that there are just 10 classes before the 2ish weeks of finals. It's hard to believe this semester is just about over!! I'm not sure when my next post will be maybe once I'm back in the states, wide awake at strange hours trying to adjust to the times :-p 

We shall see :)
