I’m a March hater.

I hate the month of March because it’s so long and boring and just shouldn’t exist anymore. Nothing important ever happens and the weather sucks. I’m just waiting for my job to be over so I don’t have to waste so much money on gas. I’m tired all of the time because of the commute so I can’t enjoy my weekends and I have no ambition to study French or do other things that I probably should be doing. In short, I’m in a bad mood for all 31 days.

But this makes me smile: NZ dolphin rescues beached whales

    It’s okay… I think everyone feels the same. I have noticed that everyone started writing less in March. Chin up, we are halfway through the month and the April is going to be beautiful!

    I loved that story about the dolphin, they are such amazing creatures. I can’t wait for March to be over as well. I can’t wait for winter to be over and this stinkin’ job! Good luck with your last month, you’re on the home stretch now. Any ideas what you want to try to do afterwards?

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.
