First Day Back


Classes resumed today, marking today as the first day of second semester of sophomore year. I've been looking forward to taking my Spanish classes since I've taken all the available French classes. I was in a class with a lot of freshman and for some reason they all knew each other, and they were also extremely hyper and enthusiastic...I couldn't really keep up. Maybe I was like that my freshman year?


I got my results for my French exam that I took in February, which I had hoped to score at least a B2 in. Unfortunately, I scored a B1, which is below the recommended French level to study abroad. It's only "recommended" so the people at the study abroad center told me that I might still be able to go. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but for the time being, I'm going to get back to studying again for the exam in May. Darn.


So my sister recommended that I watch Game of Thrones a while back and I gave it a shot but didn't quite fall in love with it like she did. My friend Erika recommended it to me today and so I decided to give the show another chance. Not really sure about it. Erika said that it gets interesting after a few episodes so I think I'll be watching a few more until I officially decide to go on or not.

妹が前にわたしにオススメしてくれたGame of Thronesというイギリスのドラマを今日また友達に勧められたので観てみることにしました。もう4シーズンが放送された大人気のドラマなのですが、まだ好きかは分かりません。友達には4話くらいからおもしろくなると言われたのでそれまでは観ようとおもいます。

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar.

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
