As if I didn’t have enough of a headache already…

I still haven’t got my website back online, but I think I found a new host. Now if only they would hurry up and send me my login details so I can upload files…

Today’s drama is about my student loans, however. They were put into deferment in May when I went back to school (took my final thesis class), and I was told I didn’t have to start paying again until December 2010. Oh, but guess what happened 6 months later? The “forbearance” on my loans expired and not only do I have to start paying them back right now, but I accrued over $100 in interest! ARGH!!!! My loans have never ever been in forbearance, and now I have to figure out how to fix this problem that someone else made. Sometimes I seriously hate being an adult.

Are people trying to kill me by stressing me out?

    I’m with you on the student loan thing. My favorite part is that the French and British are like, “student loans? what are those?”. Garg.And if “people” are trying to kill you via stress then “they” must be doing the same to me. I say we rise up against “them”.Happy Holidays… eh?

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
