Monday, took her for a drink on Tuesday… sang Craig David in the year 2000. Not relevant to this post in any way but the song title. You’re welcome.
But really, seven days. Only seven days until I go home to England after spending almost eleven months away. I’m very excited (and a little sad) and currently spending the evenings packing my life into suitcases. It’s a pretty mammoth task, but I’ll get there eventually. I’m hoping to have it all packed up (or at least most of it) by Saturday evening/Sunday morning because mum and dad arrive on Sunday afternoon and I want to spend those three final days with them in Paris rather than holed up in my room stressing about whether or not to take that notepad home or to throw that business card away.
This isn’t really any special post, nor will it be particularly long, it is really more of a little announcement of the start of the final week of my year abroad. It’s a bit crazy for me that this week has finally arrived. Eleven months ago I was flying out to Spain, and six months ago I was flying from Sevilla to Paris, and now I’m preparing to go home. This year abroad was something that has been in my mind since I decided to study languages at Sixth Form (at the end of High School for all you North Americans and anyone out there who doesn’t understand the English schooling system) and now it’s coming to an end. It’s a bit insane.
I understand I’ve probably repeated a load of stuff in this post that I have said before in recent posts, but that’s because it’s kind of difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I’ll soon be home in England after a year living on the continent! I’m sure all you fellow year abroad-ers and those of you who have had a similar experience can understand me.
Anyway, like I said, just a little post to say that the end is drawing ever closer (oooh, that sounds scary). I have quite a few blog posts left to write about Paris, but I will probably be saving them to post after I get back to England because, as I said before, I’m pretty busy at the moment! Sit tight, you’ll have something more interesting to read soon!
Until next time,
