Viva La Revolution

During a Skype conversation with my family yesterday, my granddad asked, “Are you still happy you went?”

I can, without a doubt, confirm that I am very happy in France. Yes, there have been days that were so cold I couldn’t bear to go outside if it wasn’t absolutely necessary, and days when I played Scrabble online for several hours straight, but those have been getting rarer and rarer. (And honestly, those things would happen in the States, too. Everyone needs their comforts of home-mine include hot tea and wifi.)

You’ve heard of the Arab Spring; perhaps this is my personal French Spring! No, I’m not staging a coup d’état, but I can feel a change in myself as the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer. With each day that passes, I understand more of my surroundings, the language, and the culture. The Francophone world is blossoming before my eyes. It’s a revolution of knowledge, and I’m incredibly excited to be a part of it!

    The real revolution starts from within. I think internal change is by far the most important. Love you, I bought a bus ticket to Detroit today, so the adventure continues 🙂
