Classes and cooking and camaraderie, oh my.

It’s hard to believe that I’ve only been in Caen for four weeks when it feels like I’ve been doing so much! I’m taking 19 hours of classes per week, cooking a lot, still getting lost from time to time, and even traveling a bit.

My classes are going pretty well. Although 19 hours is definitely a lot, and definitely feels like a lot, at least I’m getting basically the same amount of credit at Baylor for the semester. Unfortunately my schedule changed, so now I’m in class from Monday through Friday. Continue reading

There hasn’t been a lot of homework so far and I’m hoping it stays that way!
