If you could go any place in the world where would it be and why?
There are so many places I want to visit, including Eastern Europe, Africa and Japan, but I think the one place I really want to go is New Zealand. I have friends that live out there, and it looks so unbelievably gorgeous and chilled out.
I really dislike it now… I picked it over 2 years ago when I started making videos on youtube, and thought it would really cool: “I can talking about my thoughts and opinions, yeah man, brilliant!”
You are condemned forevermore to live alone. You may take one book, one film, one food luxury, one game, one TV boxset and the phone number of one friend. What do you choose?
Live alone?! :( Wah.
Book: Deathly Hallows
Film: The Matrix
Food: I would normally say pizza, but I just ate a crapload, so I’ll say sushi.
Game: The Sims 3 XD
Boxset: Either Green Wing to satisfy my odd sense of humour, or Glee, which constantly makes me smile.
Number: Och, that’s a toughie, but it’s got to be the number of one of my oldest and bestest friends, Harriet :3
Oh, would you look at that, I forgot about this, just like I knew I would >.<
I am terrible with blogs/diaries. I have lots of notebooks at home with about a weeks worth of entries in, and then I get bored/genuinely forget about it, and it remains unused until I find it weeks/months/years later and lol at the contents.
So anyway. France is brilliant. I’ve been here for nearly a month now (a month? Jeez, time has just flown by!) and I am having an absolute ball. I’ve met some amazing people, and have got a nice little group going, made up of Irish, English, American and French too, obviously XD
The nights out here have been insane. Yes, I go out when I’m at home, and yes I get drunk and stay out later, but nothing compared to here. Crawling home at 5:30am most nights? Brilliant.
Lessons have been good too. I keep nerding out because the translation classes are so interesting. We went to a French into English translation class, which is obviously meant for French students, but we went because we need the practise translating, and well, it’s taught in English XD It was absolutely fascinating to hear the teacher talk the Frenchies through English grammar points, trying to explain the logic behind some things.
"…young people try to find a work…"
"No, you never say ‘a work’. You can say ‘a job’, or ‘a placement’, or ‘a position’, but it is simply ‘work’ and ‘employment’.
"It just is, I’m afraid. One of these things you need to learn!"
I’m also going to go to a Spanish class once a week, just so I haven’t forgotten all my Spanish entirely by the time I go to Alicante!
Oh, and I’m hoping to start Russian. Because, well, why not?
