I can’t believe it’s almost December. The past 2 months have flown by. I’ve already received my second paycheck and there are only 3 more full weeks of class before Christmas vacation.
I’ve been really enjoying my work here in France. The teachers and students are nice, and a lot of them earnestly want to learn English. I’ve also been baby-sitting a 2.5 year old on weekends for extra money. His parents speak English, but they want a native speaker around so he won’t have an accent when he grows up.
I finally went swimming in the famous Seynod piscine this week. There were a lot of people there, and the jacuzzi wasn’t as warm as I thought it would be, so I didn’t stay very long. But now I can say I have been to the piscine!
The weather has been getting colder, but it’s still not too cold. Even today with the rain, it’s almost 50 degrees F out. I hope the winter is just as mild…
I’ve been working more on my thesis, but I still have a long way to go. It’s hard to concentrate on it while I’m also constantly preparing lessons and attempting to improve my French.
A plus tard !
