Guess who has the right to work in France now?


ME!!!

I got my carte de séjour vie privée et familiale today! It says “autorise son titulaire à travailler” right on it. And it’s good until May 2009. I am beyond ecstatic!!!

It has taken me almost two years and a lot of months wondering how I’d make it financially in France. I hope EU citizens realize how incredibly lucky they are. Not that I’m bitter or anything…

Time to apply for unemployment and any and every job I can find!

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.
