Next weekend is the start of one crazy week!
After nearly 3 months in France, I decided that the best option for me at the moment is to go home, work as much as possible, save as much as possible, and come back to France sometime after March. The job hunt here was frustrating but I feel like I did my best. I’m definitely considering doing my masters in Lille next year (studying modern languages), and with a student visa, I’d have the right to work 20 hours/week anywhere I’d like (or anywhere I can get hired). The main problem this time around with interviews was never the conversation, but the fact that I didn’t have valid working papers. As a student, I’d have already jumped through that hoop, so hopefully it would be much easier to support myself.
With that being said, the boy and I wanted to do something super fun for our last week together. To celebrate his birthday, we are heading to LONDON for 4 days starting next Saturday. The last time I was there was in 2006 with my high school, so I can’t wait to revisit it!
We’ll get back on Tuesday afternoon, and… my plane back to Texas leaves on Wednesday morning from Brussels.
Thursday, I’ll be home: unpacking, going to a job interview, getting my haircut, and repacking…
… to leave on Friday to go to my cousin’s wedding up north. I can’t wait to go and see all of my family that I miss so much!
Then we’ll fly back home on Sunday, where I will most likely collapse and sleep for 3 days.
I can’t believe how fast this 3 months has gone by. I guess it was hard to realize it until I had an exact departure date. Maybe things didn’t work out as I was hoping for, but I know that I’m going to keep trying!
