Change is in ze air

As of today, I no longer am a student at Lycee Pierre Bayen. It just doesn't work for me, and I refuse to continue to wait for time to pass. If you know me, you know I'm big on time and what it represents, what it is. If this is all I have for certain in life, I prefer not to waste it.

Anyway, it seems the only choice I have is to change schools with the chance of being placed in terminal (equivilent to gr 12). However, this is only a chance because this is the year the students have their bac, which are huuuge exams they need to prepare for and pass in order to graduate.

I dont know if a new school will change a lot, but I am remaining optimistic because at least it is something different.

My host-mom, Claire, has been helping me a lot with this. I feel so fortunate with my family placement. And I think I've learned how to be open with them about everything- my problems mainly. So all is good.

Yesterday also went to Troyes with my bud Pierre. Twas a good time. On the care ride home I watched as the whole family spoke excitedly about the new things they bought. I had returned empty handed, which came as a shock to everyone. Apparently it is not french to shop for a day and buy nothing?! Tis the fashion thing, i guess. It was a good day nonetheless. And it snowed.
