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.


  1. Go to France! I don't like changes too but life begins at the end of our comfort zone. :) Being after graduation is probably great time to do something new. I don't think, you will decide to go to France being +40 years old with family, it'd so much harder. :) Greetings.

  2. So true! Thanks for the help :)

  3. I'm curious, why did you move to so many different unis?? Also- you CAN do it. You're just scared about the "what if" and the not knowing about anything part. Which is COMPLETELY natural and usual. Living in France sounds like something you're bound to do at some point in your life because you sound so passionate about it. I think you want to take that risk and make that change, but only you know, you're in control :)

  4. Aw thanks! :) I'll actually write a post about my transfers because I'm not sure if I actually addressed it and why I did so! Thanks for reading!! :D
