In other news, I found my apartment in Avignon for the duration of my teaching assistantship! It's adorable and way closer to the university than I was when I was actually ATTENDING the university... Unfair, right? Anyway, the apartment is fully furnished and I'll be living with a student at the university named Claire. We've never met and I've not technically *seen* the apartment in person, but I think it should be great. Plus, it's more information than you get when you move into your Freshman dorm, right? It's such a relief to have found a place! Now, I just need to get all of my paperwork in order!
Other than that, I don't have much to report in the running/eating/whatnot arena, but here are a few snapshots from our last, rainy weekend in Paris:
Oh, and I leave you with my favorite song of the moment. I stumbled upon it because one of my co-workers in Cincinnati just got married and this was the soundtrack for their "same day edit," a really cool idea I'd never heard of before where the whole day is filmed and then mixed and the short film is presented to everyone onscreen at the end of the reception. Interesting, huh? I love the chorus:
I'm not afraid of all the reasons why we shouldn't try
Hey boy, won't you take me out tonight?
I get excited when I think of crawling into your arms.
What can I say? I'm sappy and, in many ways, very ready to go home and snuggle. Anyway, sorry it wouldn't let me embed the actual music video, but the video this guy made is actually pretty sweet.
