Life in France: Day 5


Day 5, September 28th

Today was a long day. Long, but good.

Rather than being in the computer room today, I was with the secretaries. I corrected the English version of a previously translated document, made some tags for folders and worked on the mail. Heck, I even wrote a French letter from my school books when I didn’t have anything to do.

After my break, I got sent to the sister school. There, I got two French documents and translated them both to English and German. It went well, got complemented on being quick and having good translations and all that. All in all, it was a good day.

After work, I hung around town and looked around some shops until meeting up with my teacher, Kujtesa and Melanie. We went to a Crêperie and had dinner together. I had a wonderful dessert. A big glass of ice cream, citrus, lemon and pineapple flavored with little pineapple chunks in it and whipped cream.


This furry thing awaited our arrival.

After spending that time at dinner, Melanie and I got back to the house just after ten.

Despite it being a long day, it was definitely worth it. I had more fun today, working with languages and all, since languages are one of my passions and it is what I’m studying for.

We’ll see what tomorrow has in store for me.

Our teacher leaves Friday morning. Tomorrow’s the last time we’ll see her, and that will free up some time. Time is good – especially when it gives me more time for other things and sleep.

Sleep is good.

I’m so sleeping in this weekend. In between doing stuff, that is.

There’s no way I am not getting some well-deserved rest.

  1. That cat is adorable. Just saying. And it sounds like your language skills are awesome. Hope you enjoy the extra free time once your teacher is gone.

  3. That sounds like a lovely day. Perfectly doable, all days should be like that. Dessert sounds marvelous! May you have more days like this, my friend.
    (Also, the expression on that cat’s face is priceless.)

    • It was. Of course, what I forgot to mention was that doing the mail entailed putting stamps on envelopes. They were out of 1,80’s, so I had to use a 1 euro, 78 cents and two one cent stamps on each one. I did over fifty.
      Dessert was wonderful!
      (I know!)
