French Word of the Day: visite (vees-it)- visit
My mom and her friend, Joan, were here for a visit. They started the trip off right by bringing me a lot of items with chocolate in them from the States. Girl scout cookies! Reese’s Pieces! Easter candy with more sugar than the French will allow in their candy!
It’s possible that I ate some of it before writing this.
It was lovely to see them both. We went out for dinner every night, usually with a new French person (and Sam, who is basically French).
Sadly my new schedule doesn’t allow me to just skip days of work whenever I want, so I wasn’t able to join them everywhere, but we did get in some Opera Garnier and Sacre Coeur.
Today at work was exciting. My boss offered me a job for the summer. As long as I can legally do it, I think I will. After all, when someone offers you a job in Paris, you take it. Unless it’s at the Moulin Rouge, in which case you seriously consider it before deciding that you might want to go down a different career path.
I also did my first journalistic interview (where I was the interviewer and not the interviewee) with someone from Tumblr, the blogging site. I ended up telling him I have a Tumblr (I’m a fan of the pretty pictures on it and like adding my own sassy comments to them… that no one reads because I have no followers…) He asked what my name on it was and laughed when I said, “the meghan.” There is only one Meghan, and apparently it’s me. I can’t help that.
Mainly, I use the site to entertain myself, so I assume he’ll judge me if he ever looks it up. I’m okay with that.
I was glad to be able to tell my mom my job news in person. I hadn’t asked if I could stay, so I was flattered that my boss offered me the job of her own free will. My mom was very encouraging and happy for me, because she rocks. 🙂
I hope she and Joan had fun! I had fun with them.
I haven’t done my homework for tomorrow, but I’ve decided to be a slacker this semester because my grades count for nothing. I’ve never been a slacker before, so this should be an interesting experiment. I’m not good at not trying, so this will be a challenge…
