So, yeah. I haven't written in a while. Which I figured would happen. I spent a week in Belgium with fellow American Chrissy over the Toussaint vacation. I had a really great time. I learned that I CAN stay in a hostel and live to tell the tale. We even made a friend at our hostel in Antwerp! I learned that I can be spontaneous. I have also learned that even Mulhouse can feel like home; it was nice to have a place to come back to. I reeeeally don't feel like recapping my trip. Just know that I had fun and you can see what I saw by checking out my shiny new flickr account: click here, please! There should be 7 albums. If not, I'll punch flickr in the face.
Work is going pretty well. I've been having some good classes lately with lessons on the American Dream/Immigration, "American Idiot", the US School system, and the Vietnam War/protest songs, to name a few. I hope it continues like this. Even if Mulhouse has it's moments of extreme sketchiness, I'm very happy with the school situation. And the other assistants! I'm lucky to have such good friends here.
I've been homesick lately. But I'm trying not to think about it. Problems at home...and I can't really do anything from here. Not that I could really do anything there either. Anyway, going to London from Nov. 30th to Dec. 5th. Then I have less than two weeks before I go home for the holidays. I'm leaving the morning of December 18th, a Friday. Technically I have school that day, but I asked if I could leave early in order to save myself $300 on airfare. Even so, I'm building up quite the credit card debt. Plus the government back home is all like, give us your money! And I'm all like, no, thanks, I'd rather not. I need to send them proof of my income so they'll stop thinking it's reasonable for me to pay $200 a month on my student loans.
Aaaaaand yeah. Look at my pictures and be merry. Since I was too lazy to write a recap of my trip, you're probably not surprised to find that I was too lazy to caption my pictures. AT LEAST I divided them into albums. AT LEAST.
