France or Bust?

Sometimes I wonder if I am all talk and no action when it comes to me wanting to live in France to work on my French speaking skills. I have been telling so many friends and family members of my future plans after graduation, mostly to appease the inconclusiveness and mystery that waits for me after May 4th, 2013.
"I want to live in France as an au pair to become more fluent in my French. Also, so I don't forget everything I've learned only to waste an entire minor and difficult 3 years of French classes" is what I have been telling everyone.

I can't help but wonder if they are as skeptical as I am...

For attending so many higher educational institutions in a variety of locations and areas, I absolutely, totally, and completely HATE change.

I don't know what I am more fearful of: Living in France, or not going at all.

I don't even know how to get started on such an adventure. But I do know that I often regret the things I don't do versus the things that I do.

Once this semester ends and I am done with school, will my new life chapter be cyclical of this entire blog? Will I be back in that rut? Part deux: post-grad.

The future is scary. 

but it's also absolutely exciting.

Pre-Valentine Treats

I could really go for something sweet right now. I think I am going through withdrawals from this past weekend.

So now I will look at delicious goodies and treats online to fill my sweet tooth while I munch on this carrot. -_-

Don't these Valentine cookies look too cute to eat??
Ha! They'd be gone in 2 seconds flat if I had my hands on them
....for real you guys...

J'ai besoin.

They can be found at the Vanille Patisserie in Chicago or just click here.
Happy early Valentine's Day to all!

Food Comas and Liquid Cheese

Oh man....

This weekend I did nothing but eat out with a friend that was visiting. I am entirely deep fried, beer battered, and cheesed OUT. I don't think I have ever felt so gross. 
Welcome to the land of fried foods, guilt, and constipation. 
TMI? Deal with it.
 It being Super Bowl Sunday (or weekend in my case), I figured this would be my last weekend of bar food. Seriously though, after eating nothing but veggies, rice, fruits, water, and tea for the past month, my body has taken a BEATING this weekend.

Excuse me while I go and die in my bed.

Time to get back on track...again.

I also SERIOUSLY need to focus on school. I am not sure of it is this snowy weather or WHAT, but I just cannot seem to get out of bed to get to class in the mornings...or, let's be honest, afternoons, too. It's hardly February and I am almost out of "excused absences" in most of my classes. ughhhh -_-

Spring Break is in exactly 1 month. That is when my week of pure bliss when begin and I will be homework free and halfway to graduation. Until then, time to hit the books.

to getting back on track....for real
