It's been a long time since I've posted anything. Yesterday was my birthday, so that was awesome. My boyfriend got me a vintage smoky quartz necklace for my birthday and a textbook on animation for Christmas.

I've tried to relax as much as possible and keep this break between semesters as low-key as possible, since I'll be going to Paris on the 11th of January and staying for the entire semester. I have really mixed feelings about going abroad. On one hand, it's a great chance to be independent and learn French. On the other hand, I feel I'm putting my life on hold for four months, and I've never been great at keeping up long distance relationships. I'm worried about losing touch with my closest friends ever and my boyfriend (who is the best man ever). I hate this feeling of waffling between anxiety and excitement.

Also, I decided to switch majors. I was Political Science and French, but I really didn't fit in with the poli. sci. crowd. I felt out of place in my classes among these deeply-entrenched-partisan-future-politicians
who surround me. I found that I hold no great opinion partisan-wise. Instead of evaluating the poltics, I found myself analyzing the arguments made in our required readings. So, when I get back from France, I'm going to declare English, because language/literature is awesome. I never would have thought I would have gone this way, but I feel much more at peace than I did previously. I could never imagine myself in the field of politics clearly, but I could see myself writing, or being involved in publishing, or even teaching. I wish sometimes that things were as easy as they were in grade school. I knew my life's progression: go to middle school, go to high school, go to college, get a job. I never thought that it would be so difficult to figure all of this life stuff out when I got to college.

Anyway, Happy Holidays f-list. Hope yours isn't filled with as much inner turmoil.

Happy birthday! :)

I love Paris, it's such a gorgeous city. And it's definitely a good way to immerse yourself in French!
