Today was very nice and relaxing. I woke up around 1 again and went with Eliza and Christina for a pique-nique au bois de Vincennes. It’s a very pretty very big park with a castle. Like, a real castle, Chateau de Vincennes. We lazed about for a while just enjoying the sun, since it will be disappearing very soon. It was relaxing to just be a bum for once. And my legs were very happy for a break from walking. The castle was really cool, and my mind didn’t know how to comprehend a castle right next to a city. I kept thinking I would look over the wall and see the ocean.
Then we came back to the foyer, and watched Toy Story with Sophia. Went down to the Salle commun and played a very intense game of Egyptian Ratscrew. I learned that there might be a french version of Egyptian Ratscrew, which just proves to me that card games transcend boundaries and are played throughout the world. Advice to anyone who’s studying abroad, bring cards. It’s honestly how I’ve met and interacted with a lot of people.
So, today wasn’t filled with tons of exciting crazy new things, but I needed the break and it really makes me happy to feel this comfortable here. Now I just need to find my own niche and friend group and life will be parfait!
