One more month

One. More. Month. One more month and I will be in Ambialet, France for the fall semester of my senior year. At the moment, a month seems distant, but I know the time will pass by quickly. There's a lot to do before then. I'm anxious to talk to my good friend Mollie about her time abroad because I know she will have excellent advice to offer about what to pack, where to go, what to see. Just look at my future backyard!

This clock never seemed so alive

I have finally checked off an item from my "Getting Ready for France" to-do list! As such, I have decided that now is as appropriate a time as ever to begin this blog with which I intend to document my European adventures. After perusing through the mall for an hour or so with my best friend last night, we stumbled upon the most perfect watch (since I have no idea how to ask for the time in French). It's a silver Timex (which just reminded me of the allusion to the Timex mentioned in the "Raining on Sunday" song by Keith Urban) that has the nicest little digits and nightlight so that you can even check the time in the dark. It was very sweet of him to buy it for me, and I know that it will come in handy throughout my entire trip (and long afterwards).
