My Week, This Week (English)

Long time no talk!
Second week of studies finished and I'm happy to announce that I can actually feel myself improving in French. It's really exciting when you realize all of a sudden that you had a normal conversation with a French person. There's still more to improve on but for now, I am glad I came to France.
My boxes finally arrived from Tokyo and I finally got to see these bottles of happiness again.
I think I might to a facemask today and relax a bit today.
My used-to-be-empty closet finally looks like someone actually lives in this room.
France is officially mid-fall.
I only packed one jean-jacket, thinking France would be warmer.
Thank goodness my coats arrived just in time.

Sandwich du jambon et fromage aka ham and cheese sandwich but like, an upgraded version.
The ham was more like roast beef and the cheese wasn't those cheep slices.

I feel like I've bee seeing a lot of "Honey-flavored" foods since I get here.
I found this honey-flavored chocolate and decided to check it out.
It was like a Twix bar with the caramel replaced with honey.
Pretty tastey!

I've gotten better at note-taking in French!
I have yet to understand 100% but this is a real improvement compared to the first days of classes.
I draw lines on parts that were too fast for me to understand.
The beginning is alright...

...but two and a half hours later results in lines after every other word. Honestly, where would I be without the lovely people who lends me their notes after class.

Talk soon!

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!
