Wow! I didn’t realize how long it had been since my last post. Life has been both eventful and uneventful over the past couple of weeks. Below you will find a quick summary of what’s been going on in my life. Next week I will post more thorough updates on my life.
Let’s start with the reason I haven’t been able to update in some time. Last week, I had an accident involving my laptop and a glass of water. Needless to say, it was out of commission for nearly one week. The good news is that my patience seems to have been worth it. My laptop (for the time being) seems to be working just fine. Fortunately, I have a comprehensive insurance/protection plan on my laptop that covers liquid damage. My plan is to continue to use the laptop as long as it is properly functioning. Being in France makes the timeline for repairs much longer than normal. Almost one month ago I dropped and broke my iPad. I am still waiting for it to arrive in France…The moral of this story is that technology hates me!
Other than dealing with broken technology my life has been relatively boring. Two weekends ago Matt, Ben, and I went to Loches for a Medieval costume exhibition. I will post pictures and tell more about that trip next week.
Last weekend was la Journée du Patriomoine and we were able to go to the top of one of the towers of la Cathédrale de Tours. It offered an excellent view of the city. Again, pictures will come next week, as well as a full synopsis of the day.
Tomorrow I am headed to London for the weekend. I feel completely unprepared for this trip, but am looking forward to a low-key weekend. The one experience that I must have is visiting the wooden hippo on the River Thames. 🙂
The apartment hunt is also in full swing. I’ve only ever been apartment hunting once in my life (during college), but it is much more stressful than I remember. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and an optimistic attitude toward the whole experience. Next week is my first meeting for my position. Here’s to hoping that everything goes smoothly.
