Last night we decided to make omelettes for dinner, and save some money. It turned out to only cost 2 Euros per person.
Je sais pas pourquoi, mais the eggs here make huge omelettes. Last night I used three eggs for my omelette and it looked like I had used five.
After dinner I attempted to do my laundry. It feels so weird to pay for my laundry after Goucher, I know it’s normal but it will still take a while to remember to bring atleast 4 euros every time.
The dryer didn’t really work. When I went to take out my clothes, everything was still wet and the inside of the dryer was hot and humid. I think I’ll just buy a drying rack and save a euro.
It’s always impossible to tell the weather here. This morning, I walked out my door and I almost went back in for another layer. Then I turned a corner and had to take off a layer because it was too hot, then the next corner was cold again. I guess it’s just how the weather works in a city. But atleast you can always count on the wind being cold, it’s like winter never really leaves.
Stores are almost never open 24/7 here. They’re either closed for the weekend or monday, or even tuesday. I guess since it’s normal its not like they’re really losing money. But it does make shopping interesting. You can never go to every store like in the US, you have to do a little shopping each day, and almost none on the weekend.
My new favorite pastry is a Vinnoise au chocolat. It’s this fluffy, light bread with chocolate chips. I have to make myself eat the free breakfest every day instead of buying one.
Speaking of being cheap, I’m finding more and more ways to save money. Maybe it was my obsession with refashion blogs this summer, but I realized I could turn all the water bottles I’ve been using into storage. I cut the bottles in half, or whatever height I want and voila, a pencil holder.
Well, I don’t know if I’ve really written anything interesting, but I have to go to class. A plus tard!
