I am so close to catching up.
Bonjour, Salut by the way.
It is technically, right now, day 8 and I have been writing posts for day’s 5- now for the past hour.
So, on va continuer this happiness challenge. We all could use a little bit of positive thinking for this dreary November.
Day seven was great. I went to class and that is something to be proud of as it is not an easy feat to commute to Bron. If I have not mentioned before, the university I attend in Lyon consists of two campuses, Campus Porte des Alpes and Campus Berges du Rhone. One campus, is smaller and is located at about a 15 minute walk from where I live and the other, is about a 40 minute to one hour commute by train and tram. Comparatively, this is not so bad as my commute back in B.C. from Richmond to UBC is about a 1 and a half hour ride each way by bus, train, and bus again. So, it really is not as bad here in Lyon as it is in Vancouver.
I went to my one class in anthropology. Despite not really understanding anything, I think I am doing fairly well for someone who has never taken a course on anthropology before, nor any social science courses in French. So gg, good game.
Yesterday was also filled with catching up on my ateliers de conversation en anglais which are courses that I lead in speaking english for students who are learning the language. So far no one has attended any of my classes and this week is the last week. It is all good though because I have made wonderful friends by joining the ateliers of other anglophones holding their ateliers.
Also, I had crêpes and went to bed at 20:30. I could not have had a better day.
et finalement, on to the next day. It is now 22:41.
À la prochaine!
