Les cours commence
Bonjour a tous!
This week has been particularly hectic due to the start of classes. I have decided not to take any science classes this semester. This is unusual, but I felt that I should step out of my bubble and try something completely different. so here is what i came up with. I was supposed to take a photography class, that might fall through, but it might not as well. No public health classes sadly
My possible classes
Geographie de l'alimentation- all about the history and geographic distribution of food, we learned about the history of pizza and are going to learn about all the wines and the regions they are from!
Histoire d'enfants et femmes- history of women and children, should be really interesting!
Literature classique et moderne- reading montaigne, cyrano and le cid, very hard, and challenging but i have an excellent section teacher, so i think, if i pass, it will be a good class.
Cubisme, orphisme and cubo-futurisme:avant gardes of paris before 1915, -the title explains a lot of the course, i also am taking the history of photography as part of this class
Litterature of Edition: all about editions of books in french, pretty awesome! My best class yet!
This week Kate and I still kept busy in the evening
Mon night: wandered around St Michel, learned about a movie theatre where they play an old, black and white italien movie in black and white that has marriages in it (forgot the name) when you go in, they give you rice and a water bottle. When there is a marriage, you throw the rice and when it rains, you throw the water. apparently fun. I went with Kate, Kate's friend Andrew who was visiting and a French friend that we met who goes to ENST
Tues: We went to see our friend Jason perform in the Sorbonne orchestra. We saw Dvorjak's New World Symphony and Dvorak's violin concerto. Both were excellent.
Wed: We had Christopher and Elliot over for dinner (more french friends) I made my famous apple pie and then we took a walk down rue moufftard (where we found the cheapest crepes yet, sugar for 1,40! crazy!!)
Thurs: Cassie took Bonni, Kate and I out for valentine's dinner. It was my first ever valentine's dinner and therefore a very special occasion. We went to an art nouveau typical french restaurant that was delicious. I tried veal for the first time (delicious!, but i am against the idea of veal) It was a romantic dinner in the city of love....
here we are at the restaurant
This is what my life currently looks like Montaigne....

UPDATE: apparently i gave you the wrong link to facebook, you should not need to register in order to see the photos. i changed the link and it should work now. please take a look
