From Annecy to Chambéry in May

Finally some news about David’s training and job.

David will be in Montpellier May 25 to June 12 for training, and then on June 15 he’s supposed to be in the city where his actual job is. We have no idea yet where that will be though!  We’re hoping to find out at the beginning of April so we can plan ahead.

There will be about 15 cities in France that he’ll have to choose from, and the preliminary list of cities didn’t have many in the south where I would love to live, but it did include Chambéry. He’s 13 out of 17 though, so I hope we don’t get stuck way up north or in Paris…

I will definitely be living in Chambéry for next year (until May 2010 at least) – but who knows if I will be alone with the cat or if David will be with me. David’s going to give notice at his job in Annecy and we also need to give our préavis to the landlord so she can find a new tenant. We plan on moving out at the beginning of May, when David will have some time off between finishing his old job and starting his training – which is in like 6 weeks. Not that I’m already stressing about it or anything.

So if anyone wants to live in a one bedroom apartment in the suburbs of Annecy, let me know. It’s a cute apartment and it was fine for David and me for a while, despite the lack of heat in the winter…

    If (only) I were moving back to Annecy, I would take your petit appart’ in a heartbeat, despite its proximity to Smelly Man’s residence.

    Great news that things are moving forward with David’s new job. I hope you guys get more news about his permanent posting soon!

    Gros bisous

    I know how you feel, my lease is up May 25, and I’m searching for a place. My lectrice position is uncertain for the next year, so I’m very familiar with the not being able to plan out *anything* feeling! If I don’t get it, I’m just starting my Master’s, so no real harm, but it drives me crazy!

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you that David gets placed in Chambé, that has to be seriously ennervant! But at least he’s got a job for life :)

    First off, thanks for reading my blog.
    Yeah, I applied for a couple of jobs with the CNRS and while you give a preference of where you want to be assigned, they can assign you anywhere — which is funny because for science research, every facility might not have the equipment for every different project. I am sure the waiting is the worst part and the not knowing. While the south of France (PACA) has great weather, there are certain cultural aspects missing.

    A car is very easy on the Cote d’azur. Very easy to get around and beautiful drives. Plus, it’s always good to get of the coast a bit and visit some of the small villages up in the mountains (with amazing views). Parking is no problem if you don’t mind paying for a garage — and it’s not horribly expensive — just kind of expensive.

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 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 a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
